The simTD (Safe and Intelligent Mobility: Test Field Germany) research project is another step towards bringing Car-to-X technology to marketability. One of its envisioned applications is a Traffic Information System (TIS) based on self-generated maps for vehicles not equipped with digital maps. To assure reliable operation, the function itself, its performance and the effect of its input parameters was simulatively evaluated before it was validated on real vehicles. In this paper we demonstrate how to adequately parameterize and evaluate such a TIS. We find feasible values for the input parameters for the creation of self-generated maps to ensure solid operation of the function. We further contribute to the community and other projects using similar TIS deployments by introducing applicable metrics for TIS evaluation in general and show our findings for the simTD research project.
