On the 23rd of October NordicWay 2, a collaboration project between Denmark, Finland, Sweden and Norway with representatives from both public and private sector, arranged a pilot showcase with results from the project. The overall objective of NordicWay is to contribute to the harmonization of cooperative intelligent transport system (C-ITS) services by using mainly cellular networks for connections between vehicles and a cloud-based information exchange between actors. Furthermore, the project aims to contribute to the development of digital infrastructure that prepare our transport system for connected and autonomous driving.
In Sweden several C-ITS services have been tested and evaluated – all connected to a common interchange node. The services/use cases selected are believed to contribute to a more efficient transport system with less emissions and increased traffic safety:
- Emergency Vehicles Approaching warnings
- Connected traffic signals with information on: Time to Green, Green Light Optimal Speed Advisory, Signal Priority Request for designated vehicles (e.g. public transport)
- Dynamic Access Control of Designated Infrastructure
- Dynamic Environmental Zones
- Road Works Warnings
Watch results on this and more in the video above.
The project is partly funded by the EU via the Connecting Europe Facility programme (CEF). The project started 2017 and will be finalized in December 2020.
