Background & Policy context

The project idea is to realize further development of research projects already implemented in Germany (Lena4ITS, ERTICO Platform Traffic Management 2.0) and pilot projects (NAVIGAR) to market maturity with regard to the information transfer between publicly based steering measures and private-sector mobility services (routing and navigation).  Navigation and routing providers continue to operate to a large extent independently and independent of the interests and strategies of the public sector. This creates avoidable problems in urban traffic management due to inconsistent information of road users.


The aim of the project is to provide municipalities throughout Germany with a tool for the simple transfer of strategies to routing and navigation applications in order to significantly improve the information basis for routing and thus support sustainable mobility. This is then also transferable to the transmission of strategies of the districts and countries. In real operation, the effectiveness is assessed on the basis of traffic-related criteria (e. g. stowage capacity) and environmental aspects. The Lena4ITS and NAVIGAR projects have laid the foundation for this, so that this project idea is aimed at bringing the system to market maturity.


With NAVIGAR the public sector (capital of Stuttgart) collaborated for the first time with a private navigation provider (Garmin)with respect to the data exchange of strategies. This can be seen as foundation for data transmission strategies of the public sector and was tested in a demonstrator with test persons. The positive effects of small-scale strategic acquisitions are confirmed by the feedback of the test persons and in scientific research. However, in the NAVIGAR project, only strategies that have been manually supplied for the project have been transmitted, isolated from current traffic news.
