Integration of public and private parking management (77.0512)
New applications in the field of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) offer promising approaches to support urban parking management. These include in particular novel applications for sensor technology, data processing and information exchange in the domain of parking. In the project, approaches for integration and cooperation between different actors in parking management are developed and demonstrated in a practical context. A consortium including city administrations, parking space providers and providers of ITS services, is establishing the foundations for such integration, and demonstrating them in the form of a pilot application.
Framework for Architectures of Intelligent Mobility Services - Concept for implementation, user support, further development and maintenance (03.0586)
In a wide range of road transport applications, Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) form an important technological and organisational basis for intelligent mobility services. These services are particularly useful and valuable for their users when they use various data from different actors in the mobility sector.
The Framework for Architectures of Intelligent Mobility Services (RAIM) was developed to promote the necessary information consistency and cooperation between the various mobility service providers. The aim of the project is to establish the consistent application of RAIM by actors from all relevant stakeholder groups in ITS projects. For this purpose, a concept for the introduction of RAIM is to be developed, which examines existing obstacles and possibilities of motivation to use RAIM and describes and explains the user-oriented presentation of RAIM. In addition to the implementation of a suitable package of measures regarding the introduction concept, RAIM users are to be supported. Among other things, a software tool is to be implemented and tested on a pilot basis.
Relief of the federal trunk road network through multimodal long-distance passenger transport services (18.0026)
The volume of traffic on federal highways is growing steadily, but the potential for expansion the roadnetwork is very limited. The transport sector contributes significantly to greenhouse gas emissions in Germany. In 2015, transport accounted for around 20 percent of CO2 emissions. For a long time now, attempts have been made to reduce the share of motorised private transport in the modal split by means of traffic avoidance measures or modal shift towards more environmentally friendly modes of transport. The aim of the study is to identify and evaluate the potential for relieving the federal trunk road network through multimodal long-distance passenger transport services. The evaluation is to be based on the transport and environmental policy objectives of the Federal Government and generate useful and implementable recommendations for action that can be oriented and measured against the environmental and transport policy objectives of the Federal Government.
FRAME NEXT (CEF-PSA) (5517001)
The FRAME NEXT project will develop the European Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) Framework Architecture (The FRAME Architecture), taking into consideration the most recent activities of different EU member states, the content of the ITS Directive (Directive 2010/40/EU) and innovative methods and tools which make a modern ITS architecture attractive to its users. The first European FRAME Architecture in 2000 was the result of the KAREN project and was further developed by different FRAME projects and in the FRAME Forum. Separate from this, the Federal Institute for Highway Research (BASt) conducted a research project on the development and introduction of a national framework for ITS architecture in Germany (RIAD). The BASt research project differs from the previous FRAME Architecture by placing special focus on the organisational and process aspects as well as following TOGAF and the associated Architecture Development Method (ADM). The aims of an ITS Frame Architecture – the creation of an open market, the favouring of effects of scaling and ensuring the consistency of information and the interoperability of services – are the same at a European and at a German level and are intended to favour the promotion of investments in ITS services. The results of the BASt research project and comparable approaches are to be incorporated in FRAME NEXT.
SOCRATES 2.0 (5517002)
Road users are increasingly obtaining traffic information from private, mobile terminal devices, such as navigation apps. However, traffic information is an important element of the traffic management strategies of road operators. The challenge is to determine how such strategies can be harmonised and communicated efficiently to road users through the different channels of the navigation service providers and of the road operators. For this purpose, cooperations and collaborations are to be created between private and public stakeholders from the areas of traffic management and navigation services. The common goal here is to promote safe and fluid traffic by coordinated traffic information and control. The Federal Highway Research Institute (BASt) participates in the EU-co-funded SOCRATES 2.0 project (Services of Coordinated Roadside and Automotive measures for Traffic Efficiency and Safety 2.0) in which cooperations between public traffic management, private information services and automotive manufacturers are further developed and tested in practice. The project is therefore to be seen as a further development of the previous German projects LENA4ITS and NAVIGAR. The following main objectives are pursued in SOCRATES 2.0: determination of suitable technical, organisational and financial cooperation models between private and public stakeholders; development of new or extended information services; testing and evaluation in four pilot cities (Munich, Antwerp, Amsterdam and Copenhagen).
DATEX II (CEF-PSA) (551600)
The Federal Highway Research Institute (BASt) on behalf of the Federal Transport Ministry (BMVI) has for years assumed tasks in connection with the maintenance and further development of European standards for the exchange of dynamic traffic data - DATEX II - as part of several of the EU Commission’s continuous funding programmes. The aim of the DATEX II organisation is to further develop, maintain and promote the dissemination of the DATEX II standard in Europe. Determining requirements of current and potentially future users as well as supporting them in the use of DATEX II play a decisive role here. The possibility of data exchange between the different stakeholders in the field of Intelligent Traffic Systems (ITS) provides the foundation for interoperability between traffic control, traffic information and navigation services, offering great potential to improve traffic management and information to road users with the effect of making traffic safer and more effective.
