Overview

Objectives

SOCRATES 2.0 promoted a continuous deployment of European-wide traffic management measures and mobile/in-car services for road users.

Methodology

Four pilot projects were organised in the regions of Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Munich and Antwerp to evaluate the feasibility and the usefulness for future large scale implementations of interactive traffic management. The following four use cases ("Day 1 or Day 1.5 services") were deployed:

  • Smart routing
  • Actual speed and lane advices
  • Local information and hazardous warnings
  • Improved roadside traffic management measures

The Action also promoted a close cooperation among road authorities, service providers and car manufacturers for interactive traffic management. Road authorities, service providers, car manufacturers and several ITS industries actively participated in the pilots.

The Action was fully aligned with ITS priorities of implementing the trans-European transport network as “intelligent” interface between roads and other transport infrastructure. Results were expected to be deployed quickly and replicated further in Europe, especially by the European-wide operating service providers and car manufacturers
