ITS Innovation & Deployment
Deploying innovation is central to ERTICO’s work to make mobility smarter, safer and cleaner, working with ERTICO Partners across four priority areas: Connected, Cooperative & Automated Mobility, Urban Mobility, Clean and Eco Mobility and Transport & Logistics.. This includes European Commission co-funded projects, ERTICO Partnership-funded Innovation Platforms and other multi-stakeholder activities, including some funded solely by industry and public authorities. These are complemented by horizontal initiatives such as the ERTICO City Moonshot, ERTICO Academy, Start-Up Initiative and international cooperation activities that align Europe and EMEA with the other ITS regional organisations that ERTICO partners with.
Our CCAM activities pave the way for the Research & Innovation necessary to ensure the availability of such services by 2035. CCAM contributes to decarbonisation and improved safety in line with EU targets, including the European Green Deal and Vision Zero. Our Urban Mobility focus area looks at aligning ITS with our strategic goals of integrated, accepted and inclusive infrastructure supported by operational CCAM services and enabling decarbonisation. Thought leadership is key: for example, contributions by ERTICO experts in Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) guidance documents. Our activities and priorities in Clean & Eco-Mobility focus on reducing emissions, dealing with pollutants from all forms of transport, and extending to brakes and tyres and tailpipes to improve air quality and health. Our aim in the area of Transport & Logistics is to increase interoperability and connectivity to optimise cargo flows and enhance supply chain management while using existing resources better. Our Innovation Platforms focused on deploying ITS are self-funded ERTICO activities and open to ERTICO and non-ERTICO Partners. Targeting European markets, we also seek opportunities globally.
We currently manage or host seven Innovation Platforms covering deployment services, including traffic management, electro-mobility, traffic and traveller information to ADAS linked digital maps, Mobility as a Service (MaaS), and cloud-based vehicle sensor data.
