  1. 1. NextGenITS The NextGenITS project reflects the intention of some of the most prominent players in the Belgian ICT sector to cooperate with research institutes and governments to develop and demonstrate a number of ITS services (ITS: Intelligent Transport Services) which have either or both a big social and commercial potential. 1. Traffic information Research will be done leading to a demonstrator implementation for the distribution of rich traffic content in Flanders. 2. eCall eCall – the notification of the rescue services in case of an accident, is a service that will lead to more timely and better prepared interventions in case of accidents. The innovation objective of the eCall subproject is to create a framework that will allow private sector eCall service providers to introduce the service on the market and to agree with public services (the Federal Police) under what conditions eCall messages can be fed directly into the public emergency network. 3. Intelligent Speed Adaption (ISA) The aim of ISA subproject is twofold: • to provide an accurate technical and organizational (public-private cooperation) framework for a speed limit database in Flanders and • to develop strategies for optimal communication of these speed limits from server to vehicle. 4. Road Charging The road charging subproject will develop a demonstrator for GSM / GPS based (private car) road tolling. The major task will be the development of an on-board unit based on a single chip integrating GPS, GSM & identification features.
  2. 2. 5. Cooperative Vehicle Systems The cooperative systems subproject will conduct research on a suitable communication platform for vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to- infrastructure (V2I) applications. Focus will be on potential use of the CALM platform (802.11, 2G/3G and IR interfaces). 6. Multi-application platforms The multi-application platform subproject represents the biggest innovative challenge in the NextGenITS project. Research will be done towards a common technology architecture which can support the different applications developed in this project, taking into account existing European standards and non-technical issues (privacy, business models).
