Intelligent driving assistance systems are increasingly playing an important role in modern vehicles. Localization and navigation are two key tasks, which usually use global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) in open areas. However, indoors GNSS is too error-prone.
In this use case Virtuose uses onsite cameras to detect, track and localize objects in a car park. To achieve accurate 3D localization the video stream is processed without completely decoding it, which reduces hardware resources needed. The system is also compatible with cars regardless of their own respective sensor configuration.

Smart Data for Mobility & Smart Data Web
For industry companies with various suppliers, it is crucial to be informed about current events which can influence their supply chain management. The Target of the App’s purpose is to monitor difficulties in the delivery process due to observing traffic, natural disasters and also economic events of merger and acquisitions of suppliers. This information is coming from websites,Twitter and RSS feeds. The algorithm behind it works as computational linguistics (analyzing words, then sentences and then in which context the sentences are standing), to evaluate their content for the specific use case.

sd-kama is an information platform for disaster relief management. The platform provides access to a large amount of data from various sources in real time. The platform aggregates information from satellite, traffic and other open data sources, as well as comments, photos and videos uploaded by rescue forces or disaster-affected citizens. In which area are the most of the relief forces needed? With a digital geospatial information system all stakeholders can be coordinated in real time.
There are many providers of cloud solutions. Unless it belongs to their core business, hardly any entrepreneur is an expert in the field of cloud services. This means uncertainty when it comes to selecting the right service. How can users know if a service is legally compliant or if they will handle their data securely? The technology program “Trusted Cloud“ by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy increases trust and transparency in providers. It also facilitates the adoption of Cloud Technologies for businesses.
Touch Application BMWi Research Programs
With our Touch Application, visitors can inform themselves about various research programs and projects as well as about general interesting facts of Big Data and Smart Data. The content can be discovered via different media formats such as video, puzzle plays or quiz games.
Virtual-Reality Demo „Smart Data – Innovations in Data“
The Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy is presenting their research projects of the program “Smart Data – Data Innovations” due to a Virtual Reality Application. The guest can use the VR glasses to be in the role of a fictitious character named Dana Smart who is using Smart Data in her every-day life actions.
Cloud computing enables companies to use IT resources, e.g. Obtain servers or software from external vendors as needed instead of buying them yourself. Small and medium-sized enterprises in particular can benefit from this: They are relieved of IT-related activities (eg creating backups, importing new program versions) and can free up cost-cutting potential. With cloud computing, it is also possible to dynamically and automatically adjust the number of servers to meet current needs.
CUPINTOSH – Hands on IoT Demo
CUPINTOSH presents the main functionality of the Internet of Things. A classic coffee cup is connected via sensors with Twitter, so every time someone is lifting the cup, it is sending a tweet.
Smart Health Demo
The e-health project of the Berlin Big Data Center shows how a health-care platform can help to monitor your own health. With the interactive dashboard, it is possible to continuously collect health-related data. The user can e.g. Capture nutritional data, movement patterns or sleeping habits. Based on the data, the system determines a health score (Smart Health Score) that helps improve one’s lifestyle and personal wellbeing.
Many devices nowadays offer digital control. The connection of these networked “things” enables powerful assistance functions for the user in various situations. For example, the heater can heat up the house to the desired temperature before the user arrives. Currently, however, the integration of various digital devices hardly takes place, since the communication of the devices with each other within the system of the manufacturer remains closed. However, for a perfect user experience, it’s important to connect devices regardless of their brand and assistance platforms. ENTOURAGE is developing an open ecosystem for intelligent, secure and trusted assistance systems in the Internet of Things.
