ITS Innovation & Deployment
Innovation and Deployment activities play a key role in ERTICO’s work to make mobility smarter, safer and cleaner. European Commission co-funded projects and ERTICO Innovation Platforms are central to developing and deploying innovative mobility solutions together with our Partners.
ERTICO currently manages over twenty research, pilot and deployment projects engaging the majority of our Partners in their consortia. These collaborative activities are carefully selected to build on the work and knowledge of earlier projects and activities, leading to extensive downstream deployment. Through these projects, ERTICO is able to push forward its focus activities and priorities in the areas of Connected & Automated Driving, Urban Mobility, Clean Mobility and Transport & Logistics.
Development, innovation and demonstration project activities culminate with pre-deployment results and guidelines. Building on the results of projects, when appropriate, ERTICO creates Innovation Platforms that focus on the deployment of intelligent transport solutions. These platforms are self-funded and open to both ERTICO and non-ERTICO Partners to maximise the deployment outreach. Innovation platforms target mostly European markets and are mindful of possible global scaling.
Currently, ERTICO manages seven Innovation Platforms covering a range of deployment services from traffic management, spatial data, electromobility, traffic and traveller information to ADAS linked digital maps, Mobility as a Service and cloud based vehicle sensor data.
