New and Ongoing Task Forces

 

The TF on Digital Infrastructure will investigate the current state of the art of the European Digital Infrastructure, and assess the current and future needs for automated and autonomous mobility.  The TF will map the existing digital infrastructure landscape and elaborate links between TM2.0, digital infrastructure and its services. Create an understanding of digital infrastructure aspects in the context of TM2.0 and how the related data services can be used for optimising traffic and its management and planning. It will also provide recommendations for public authorities and stakeholders to address the most pressing aspect of the digital infrastructure implementation and planning.

This work will result in a Report to be presented to the TM 2.0 Steering Body.

 

With increasing urbanisation throughout Europe and related increase in Urban mobility, the implementation of Urban Access schemes (Or UVAR: Urban Vehicle Access Regulation), have contributed  mitigating the negative aspects related to urban mobility (Air Quality, Safety, Traffic Congestion, damage to historic infrastructure and increasing impact on for public space use). Throughout Europe different implementations have been performed, where most often the domain of Urban Traffic Management cut crossing with other domains such as public space management, MaaS, Logistics and Parking. As there is a strong need for inventory of policy goals and initiatives and also for inventory of standards and/or ways to communicate intelligent access policy in digital ways, the TF on Intelligent Access will look into the current SoA with regards to Access, Regulations and assess the needs that TM 2.0 concept has in this aspect of planning and managing traffic.

This work will result in a Report to be presented to the SB and next TM 2.0 GA.

 

The TF on Multimodality in TM will need to elaborate on the links and common path between TM 2.0 and MaaS. It will show how TM is evolving towards embracing other modes of mobility with key focus on a seamless passenger travel. The TF aims to understand and bond multimodality in the context of TM 2.0 and show how the use of different transport modes influences and impacts traffic in terms of planning and management. The TF will focus on, examine and address the (peri-) urban transport system as a whole. Interurban and cross border travel will be also addressed.

This work will result in a Report to be presented to the TM 2.0 SB and the MaaS Alliance.

 

Roadworks are inevitable, but almost always have a negative impact on traffic flow. Information about road works both when given in advance for the purposes of better planning and also when given in real time for, among other purposes, safety is extremely important. This TF will provide an overview on the challenges of the optimal dissemination of the Road Works information to the proper private and public stakeholders and  possible coordination mechanisms based on the TM 2.0 collaboration model in traffic management operations. It will focus on the clarification of the difficulties that exist on the municipal side, with regard to the planning and diversion measures for road works, based on the experience of the two cities of Hamburg and Lisbon.

This work will result in a Report to be presented to the SB and next TM 2.0 GA.
