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.

Project implements new "Intermediary" role

The public and private partners in the European project SOCRATES2.0 develop and test various smart traffic information and navigation services for road users, such as optimized navigation advice at major events and road works. The challenge is not only the technical realization of the services, but also lies in the cooperation. In order to shape the cooperation, six cooperation models have been developed, in which the role of the so-called "Intermediary" as a completely new function is implemented.

Working together is showing guts

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.
