Pilot Application of Advanced Traffic Management in Flanders (B), Wallonia (B) and North Rhine Westphalia (D)

Objective

To realise and interconnect multi-modal traffic information centres. To Solve the institutional problems and to evaluate the project

Technical Approach

The space for transport in densely populated regions cannot be increased any more. The overall objective is therefore to make the most intelligent and optimum use of the existing transport infrastructure and facilities on corridors between 3 regions of Europe: Flanders (B), Wallonia (B) and North Rhine Westphalia (D)

The partners will reach this objective by the following actions:

Mutual institutionalised exchange of experience, results and ideas gained from the operation of systems in the areas concerned since many years;
finally determinate the objectives and the actions to be carried out in the corridor areas and to elaborate concepts within the framework of the feasibility study;
integrate the results and ideas of other Transport Telematics projects, mainly investigate which strategies, models, to be adapted for use in the measures planned and can be tested in field trials, with the aim of obtaining systems and strategies and wider European perspective;
discuss the first concepts with infrastructure owners and partners;
experience with monitoring in centres in Belgium and Germany will be exchanged;
refine and compile the results, so they can serve as a basis of future recommendations or even standards;
by application of pre-standards elaborated by topic groups.

Key Issues

to realize the interconnection of regional information centres for the cross border exchange of information.
to solve the institutional problems concerning multi-modal information centres.
to evaluate pilot realizations.

Expected Impact

The main goal of EURO-TRIANGLE is to realise inter-regional motorway control and information systems. In parallel with the EURO-TRIANGLE EC-financed project, nationally financed studies are carried concerning ramp metering, public transport integration, image processing and incident handling, overall congestion management and information handling. To realize the objectives, a close collaboration of different ministries and public organizations over the borders of the regions and nations is necessary.

Contribution to Standardisation

The EURO-TRIANGLE project is situated in the heart of Europe. Therefore the interlinking of regional information centres will be studied in close collaboration with other DRIVE projects (topic groups). Pre-standards will be applied and evaluated.
