  6. 6. Benefits of ITS for urban mobility ITS
  7. 7. Examples of ITS systems and services Hazard warning extend driver perception and control
  8. 8. Examples of ITS systems and services Vehicle to vehicle and vehicle to infrastructure communication improve intersection safety
  9. 9. Examples of ITS systems and services Cooperative services: vehicle to infrastructure communication to improve infrastructure usage
  10. 10. Examples of ITS systems and services ITS for Vulnerable Road Users Vulnerable Road Users (VRUs) account for approximately 43% of all traffic-related fatalities EU-wide. Especially children are at risk; road accidents are the leading cause of death for children under 15 years. • Need for an integrated and distributed approach for VRU protection, combining in-vehicle sensor-, communication- and infrastructure-solutions • Further improve in-Vehicle VRU sensing • Use telecommmunication technologies to detect VRU • Enhance collision risk assessment methods • Find innovative driver-to-vehicle warning mechanisms • Solve security and privacy issues SAFESPOT: 802.11p Relay nodes bridge the  communication technology communication gap for V2V & V2I multi‐hop WATCH‐OVER:  802.15.4a for VRU detection
  11. 11. Examples of ITS systems and services FREILOT – Energy Efficient Urban Freight FREILOT pilot aims to provide quantifiable proof that cooperation between city authorities and freight operators supported by ITS, can increase energy efficiency of urban freight by 25%. FREILOT incentive based, win-win scheme: • City authorities will implement a traffic management system with selective priority at intersections providing a certain level of priority to goods vehicles • Only goods vehicles equipped with acceleration/adaptive speed limiters and eco-driving support will be eligible for this priority • In addition, the pilot cities will offer a service for efficient management of delivery spaces to these vehicles
  12. 12. Examples of ITS systems and services Electrification of vehicles and ITS in the urban setting Urban areas will reach about 70% of the world population. Electric Vehicles (EV) will play an important role in offering efficient, clean, zero -emission and -noise urban mobility. Challenges are their use & integration in the transportation system. Aixam Mega • Development of battery, engine and vehicles technologies are the main focus today • Innovative ITS systems and services are needed to ease EV integration, deployment and exploitation; in particular starting from existing ITS solutions: • further develop navigation maps as a predictive mean with ADAS horizon for EV, • improve vehicle-to-driver interaction to optimize EV trips e.g. range, battery life and management, • solve safe interaction between EV and Vulnerable Road Users, • integrate EVs into the Smart Electrical Grid as a component of the energy distribution network.
  13. 13. Examples of ITS systems and services i-Travel and urban mobility • Many travellers in the city are not familiar with travel options • In a city several different modes of transports and alternatives exist • A personal real-time travel assistance can connect the traveller with the different travel operators and help realise significant improvement on comfort, efficiency, safety and environment friendliness 13
  14. 14. Examples of ITS systems and services Open platform for traffic data collection & processing The Challenge The Solution • New data sources to be integrated • Data exchange and sharing with existing data • Standardised interfaces • Separate ownership of traffic data • Centralised data processing • Data collection based on specific modules requirements • Integrating new data, historical and • Lack of common format real-time data Resulting in repeated collection, Maximum benefits from all available inefficient use of data and non- data to improve short term traffic harmonised environment operation and long term planning
  15. 15. Examples of ITS systems and services Open platform for traffic data collection & processing
  16. 16. Examples of ITS systems and services Real-time Information for Urban Mobility “5 to 10% of total city traffic consists of vehicles looking for a parking space” Source: European Transport Conference 2006 • Small reductions in traffic volume significant congestion and pollution reductions • TMC services already optimise routes and reduce overall congestion • Recent TMC services improve city street coverage compared to early services. TPEG services using dynamic location referencing will allow full local street coverage • TPEG applications for real time parking and fuel finding, and less driver-specific features such as weather and public transport are under development in TISA
  17. 17. Major challenges for further deployment of ITS Create business cases Provide framework conditions e.g. pre-commercial procurement e.g. privacy, liabilities Increase demand Implement certificates Deployment of e.g. quality Intelligent Mobility Provide standards or de-facto standards Test functionality, acceptance e.g. interoperability and impact 17
