Welcome word
Uno studio canadese valuta l'efficacia delle campagne per promuovere l'uso dei seggiolini

Dear Colleague,

A warm welcome from the platform of authorities and operators of the trans-European road network who are working together towards a smarter and more efficient mobility, a goal which will be achieved through large-scale technology deployments. The "EU ITS Platform" brings together the majority of key European players who cooperate to establish an open "forum" which provides a joint contribution to future strategy and contibutes to the policy recommendations for the improved development and deployment of ITS services along European Road Corridors.

This Newsletter will diffuse the progress achieved within the European ITS Platform and relevant corridors, in this way linking the community of the platform to the external world of technicians, institutions, scientists and industry.

The Newsletter will be a tool for the sharing of knowledge concerning the results achieved and opportunities that a pan-European approach can offer to the progression of road technologies. I hope that many readers shall follow us and decide to cooperate with us further.

Roberto Arditi – SINA (Gavio Group), Project Manager EU EIP

EU EIP Reports

Identified the requirements of automated driving towards road operators

EU EIP has analysed the requirements of higher-level road vehicle automation towards road authorities and operators and also other stakeholders. These requirements deal with the consistency and continuity of the physical infrastructure (e.g. road markings, landmarks, signs, road surface quality, traffic management strategies and maintenance processes), the digital infrastructure (e.g. digital maps, real time traffic information, back-office processes), road maintenance and network management processes, and classification of roads for automated driving. In addition, the report addresses the legal and normative framework requirements of automated driving.

Road operators are automating their own ITS

The EU EIP deliverable identifies autonomic functions and applications in existing ITS implementations and describes the benefits of these autonomic properties for the road operators and their customers, travellers and hauliers. The report specifies the autonomic behaviour and properties of intelligent transport systems and functions at traffic management/control/information centres as well as in roadside ITS systems, giving multiple examples of the existing deployments in different European countries. Last, the report describes the conclusions and the next steps to be taken with regard to utilizing automation in road operators’ own ITS
