Paving the way for the future of car mobility
SOCRATES2.0 is a pan-European project that brings together road authorities, service providers and car manufacturers. Together they set new standards to share and integrate traffic information. This enables effective traffic management and opens the door to innovative traffic information and navigation services. It will make traffic smoother, safer and more sustainable. Hence our pay-off: fast, safe and green. SOCRATES2.0 also provides the essential building blocks to prepare Europe for the future of self-driving cars.
News & Agenda
SOCRATES2.0 partners unveil a key part of the European project SOCRATES2.0. In the showcase, a detailed, comprehensive and consistent digital image of the infrastructure and traffic situation in Copenhagen was created. The demo showed the power of exchanging and integrating available data and information.
Collaborate. It seems so simple and we often are keen on seeing benefits. But actually doing it, still requires some guts. In the European project SOCRATES2.0, eleven public and private organisations have been challenged to try different ways of working together to realise smart traffic and navigation services. Consortium partners HERE, Technolution, BMW and the city of Copenhagen will unveil a glimpse of what’s coming up in 2019 in SOCRATES2.0 during a demonstration at the ITS World Congress in Copenhagen.
On 5 July several partners of the project were invited to the pilot city of Amsterdam to present themselves and explain the project. In this meeting, that was hosted by Amsterdam Practical Trial (APT), there was a panel discussion with the partners about the reason why they are participating in this project and their expectations and vision on interactive traffic management. Watch this short movie with the highlights of the meeting.
Public and private partners of the SOCRATES2.0 project developed a framework for public – private cooperation in traffic information. The framework is relevant and valuable to all stakeholders in traffic management and –information services.
