Cooperative Mobility Pilot on Safety and Sus- tainability Services for Deployment - COMPASS4D
The COMPASS4D project ended in December 2015, having equipped 7 cities with the most modern cooperative systems (Bordeaux, Copenhagen, Helmond, Newcastle, Thessaloniki, Verona and Vigo). The road hazard warning, red light violation warning and the energy efficient intersection service have been tested in hundreds of thousands of kilometers along the European roads by more than 800 bus, taxi, truck, emergency vehicles and private vehicle drivers.
Three years were needed in total for the development of the services, the installation of the systems and the pilot testing of the cooperative services. The final demonstration of the services took place during the ITS World Congress in Bordeaux in October 2015 with representatives of the seven cities participating in the project.
Since the beginning of 2016 hundreds of G5-enabled road side units, installed at the traffic lights and along the ring roads of the participating cities, but also a total of 164 intersections (14 in Thessaloniki and 150 in Verona), are providing, through ITS-G5 and LTE communications respectively, to the equipped vehicles and therefore the drivers, information about the countdown of the traffic light, road accidents, queues lengths and road works, as well as red light violation warnings.
The consortium of COMPASS4D project includes a total of 31 partners from 10 countries and is coordinated by the European Road Transport Telematics Implementation Coordination ERTICO - ITS Europe. The pilot of Thessaloniki is leaded by CERTH/ HIT, in collaboration with the Region of Central Macedonia, the Infotrip and TaxiWay companies and the Institute of Communication and Computer Systems (ICCS) of the National Technical University of Athens.
