Pilot site leader is:
The region of Copenhagen
The objective of this activity is to deploy interactive traffic management in the city of Copenhagen. This will be done by realising (changes to the) sub-systems, performing system integration tests and operate the sub-systems during the integration tests and the evaluation period. The implementation of interactive traffic management fits perfectly in the city’s view on mobility as described in “Better mobility in Copenhagen”.
UNIQUE FOCUS ON ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT
MULTIMODAL SERVICES FOR CARS, BIKES AND PUBLIC TRANSPORT
MORE THAN 1.000 BETA USERS
Testing interoperability, replicability and scalability
Although this test site has less involved road users than the Dutch pilot, the Danish pilot is very important to experience the cooperation framework and traffic management information services in another country in another environment and with a different culture. Moreover, it will demonstrate that services developed in one country can be used in another one and this will prove the interoperability, replicability and scalability of the services and framework. This is important for developing profitable services for the European-wide operating services providers and the seamless continuity of services for road users. The same goes for functions and roles of different stakeholders. The cooperation framework needs to meet the priorities and needs of all stakeholders involved on a EU-wide scale.
The pilot in Copenhagen is mainly focused on a multi-modal traffic management approach and testing and integrating multimodal services. Having a goal for modal split of 50% of trips to work and education to be done with bikes by 2025, puts Copenhagen in a unique position to test and deploy a multimodal traffic management in the City which could be more responsive to multimodal demands. It is envisioned that about 1000 beta users will be involved in the project. It is planned to run various tests to see how interactive traffic management with various data providers can indeed improve the level of service for all the modalities incl. cars, bikes, public transport and help the city to reach Copenhagen – Carbon Neutral by 2025. This will also enable to create a domain for other European cities who are interested in adapting more environmental friendly (i.e. bicycle and public transport) mobility.
In the Danish pilot the traffic management center of the Copenhagen road authority works together with several private intermediaries and with all SOCRATES2.0 service providers. The City of Copenhagen will lead this activity, provide pilot coordination, monitors progress of all tasks, organizes the system integration tests and the evaluations according to the agreed plan. Based on the common designs and specifications (see Framework design), all partners (public and private) can work in isolation to modify or extend their systems and services.
