The first webinar of theEuropean ITS Platform took place on 3rd November 2020. Its focus was on the preview of the “Reference Handbook for harmonized ITS Core Service Deployment in Europe” and on the European commitments towards a safer and sustainable road network.
In 2013 en 2015 Delegated Regulations have been published by the European Commission requesting Member States to establish so-called National Access Points on truck parking, safety related traffic information and real-time traffic information.
Quality package for safety related and real-time traffic information services
EIP+ has produced a quality package for safety-related and real-time traffic information listing the recommended quality criteria and requirements for the priority actions c) and b) of the ITS Directive.
The recommendations have been validated by studies in eight member states in 2015.
Since the publication of three ITS Delegated Regulations, the European ITS Platform (EIP) has undertaken activities to monitor the deployment of national access points, to organise workshops and to come up with practical harmonization solutions.
Several reports about Single Point of Access (SPA) where delivered:
On 18 September 2015 the kick-off meeting of the Activity 3 - "Feasibility study East-West Corridor and first pilot implementation" of the EU EIP project took place at the Ministerium für Bauen, Wohnen, Stadtentwicklung und Verkehr des Landes Nordrhein-Westfalen in Düsseldorf (Germany). The meeting was attended by 11 participants from seven different Member States. The kick-off meeting was the first event of the new EU EIP project, the European ITS Platform, which will run until 2020.
The ITS projects selected under the 2013 TEN-T Calls for Proposal are highlighted with a special publication at the European Commission and the Innovation & Network Executive Agency (INEA) booth at the ITS World Congress in Bordeaux. In the morning of the first day the newly selected CEF ITS projects received from Commissioner Bulc a symbolic check representing the EU funding made available to them. Read the full acceptance speech by Stephanie Kleine on behalf of the ITS corridor coordinators and the consortia they represent:
The partners involved in the EIP+ activity on Cooperative ITS services have met on 17.06.2015 in Frankfurt. The meeting was hosted by Hessen Mobil.
Main purposes of the meeting were to check the progress of the different tasks of the activity and to plan the work of the upcoming months. Alongside the meeting the colleagues of Hessen Mobil demonstrated work in progress related to the Road Works Warning service in the Cooperative ITS Corridor.
For many years, Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) and core European ITS services have represented a major implementation objective of the road operators collaborating within the EasyWay community. The technological progress in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) has technically matured into Cooperative ITS (C-ITS) as the next generation of ITS. Its use has also become increasingly affordable. This process has been stimulated by research and development projects, followed by large scale Field Operational Tests on national and European level.
Although ITS for roads has been applied by EU Member States with great success already since decades, there is still the need and the willingness to continue the existing cooperation. Such a joint effort improves cross-border continuity of services and coordination, the exchange of knowledge as well as sharing best practices. Harmonised deployment of ITS services across the EU helps overcoming fragmentation which hinders the efficiency and competitiveness of road transport along EU corridors.
The A21 Workshop objective on 16th April 2015 was to inform and prepare the EIP+ ITS Deployment Guideline Team for the peak working period that lies ahead in EIP+ Activity 2.1 . In preparation of the meeting feedback from the five ITS implementation corridor was collected which Deployment Guidelines will be applied in the particular corridor ITS implementations. On the basis of this input an important outline about the upcoming work could be discussed and gained.
