Intertraffic 2016, Amsterdam (05.-08.04.2016)

The Intertraffic is the world’s leading trade fair for the traffic and transport industry. It has evolved from the first event in 1972 as a platform for experts from around the world. Every two years, you can get information about the deve­lop­ments in the field of infrastructure, traffic management, safety and parking technology, establish important business relationships, exchange ideas and enhance expertise. Large companies from around the world showcase their latest products and innovations in the context of a four-day fair.

The C-ITS Corridor project was represented at the event both with a stand (09 314) as well as with a presentation (Smart Mobility: the Cooperative ITS Corridor is deploy­ing the future, 05.04.2016, 16:00-16:45, Smart Mobility Theatre).

C-ITS corridor – a smart way to travel: the Cooperative ITS Corridor between Rotterdam, Frankfurt and Vienna improves traffic safety, accessibility, traffic flow and environmental impacts through cooperation and the use of smart technology between The Netherlands, Germany and Austria.

Smart technologies, such as wireless communication between vehicle and road, expand the opportunities for transport efficiency, increased safety and reduced environmental pollution. Although many studies have already been carried out in this area, the actual use of this technology on a large scale is still considered a vision of the future. At this point the C-ITS Corridor is the first initiative to become
a reality in the future. The C-ITS Corridor, initiated by the Ministries of Transport of the Netherlands, Germany and Austria, is not a pilot or field-test anymore, but the first international project, which integrates cooperative ITS services into a fully functional transport infrastructure.

The leading developers of cooperative ITS services in Europe presented their prac­ti­cal experiences. They explained that considerable progress has been made re­gar­ding the concerted implementation of interoperable cooperative systems. The oppor­tuni­ties of the new technology were discussed and the main challenges in the current C-ITS deployment were identified. The presentation included a brief intro­duc­tion to the objectives of the project, important experiences and the current project status.
