Dutch C-ITS project publishes results

Home / News | posted on 13 04 2017

A project on the A58 motorway between Eindhoven and Tilburg in the Netherlands has published a report on its 3 year C-ITS trial.

From early 2014 through to late 2016, thirty organisations collaborated in the development, implementation and testing of a cooperative vehicle-roadside system, including the first service implementation, a project called 'Shockwave Traffic Jams A58'. This is used to tackle phantom shock-wave congestion on motorways which can account for up to 40% of traffic jams on the A58. In the process of undertaking the project, a wealth of experience was gained; about behaviour, data, security, organisation, and more. The Co-operative Intelligent Transport System (C-ITS) system, the application and the lessons learned in the three years of 'Shockwave Traffic Jams A58' are covered in the report. The project included 30 organisations, with 120 staff, 150,000 hours of work and research, at an investment of €15 million.
