System of Coordinated Roadside and Automotive Services for Traffic Efficiency and Safety
SOCRATES 2.0 promotes a continuous deployment of European-wide traffic management measures and mobile/in-car services for road users.
Cef Action: 2016-EU-TM-0148-S
Four pilot projects will be 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”) will be deployed:
• Smart routing;
• Actual speed and lane advices;
• Local information and hazardous warnings;
• Improved roadside traffic management measures.
The Action also promotes a close cooperation among road authorities, service providers and car manufacturers for interactive traffic management. Road authorities, service providers and car manufacturers, car manufacturer and several ITS industries will actively participate to the pilots.
The Action is fully aligned with ITS priorities of implementing the trans-European transport network as “intelligent” interface between roads and other transport infrastructure. Results are expected to be deployed quickly and replicated further in Europe, especially by the European-wide operating service providers and car manufacturers.
