New and Ongoing Task Forces



Task Force Proposal Objectives

  • Speed up the development of innovative solutions for advanced active traffic management by linking to intermodal and syncromodal interfaces.
  • Link with relevant initiatives and projects (DTLF, CO-GISTICS, URSA MAJOR, INTERCOR)
  • Link with MG 4.1 proposal .
  • Proceed to Project

Work Plan

  • Identify relevant use cases
  • Survey needs for “digital infrastructure” and intelligent cargo
  • Analyse needs for new interfaces and communication technologies
  • Expected report end of 2017

Task Force Proposal Objectives

The main aim of TM2.0 is to enable vehicle interaction with traffic management. A lot of research effort is focusing on automation in road transport, which is expected to benefit also from the evolution of Cooperative ITS and the exchange of data among all entities. Road Automation is an important development that is expected to affect not only the vehicle but also the infrastructure and thus the TM, so it has to be considered in view of the long term evolution in TM. In addition it can be considered as an enabler of the evolution of TMCs. So, the planning of integrating and facilitating Road Automation is being considered in every aspect of the Platform’s work. The TF on Road Automation safeguards that the evolution of TM is taking Road Automation into account.

Based on the outcomes of the previous two phases, in phase III this Task Force will undertake the following:

  • Study the requirements and measures the Traffic Managers may possibly pose on automated vehicles.
  • Survey how the current and future digital infrastructure and Traffic Management can support automated vehicles.
  • Examine and start working towards a classification of infrastructure in relation with the requirements of automation in cooperation with the newly funded H2020 project, INFRAMIX.

The objective of this Task Force is to provide public and private stakeholders with practical guidelines on how to facilitate TM 2.0 collaboration between stakeholders on a tactical level. Deadline for Midterm reporting is January 2018; deadline for finalisation is June 2018

This new Task Force will open and will help us to deploy what we have agreed for the past 3 years. The TM 2.0 chairs Klaas Rozema (Dynniq) and Martin Russ (Austriatech) will lead this Task Force. The main tasks will be:

  • to set the next phase IV: from TM 2.0 testing & assessing towards marketplace implementation
  • to set the roadmap
  • to give the opportunity for the TM 2.0 members to include proposals for next TF work
