ITS World Congress 2009

16th World Congress on Intelligent Transport Systems and Services

Stockholm International Fairs & Congress Centre (Stockholmsmässan), Sweden

21-25 September 2009


The focus of the ITS World Congress 2009 was on the implementation of ITS solutions which improve our everyday lives in helping make our transport system cleaner, safer, more efficient, reliable and secure.

This theme underlined the importance of deploying ITS research results so that daily use of innovative traffic and mobility services becomes a reality and benefits citizens and business community alike. Broad use of ITS services will help achieve political priorities shared far beyond the borders of the European Union, in relation with energy efficiency and climate change. Rapid deployment of ITS solutions will help make transport more efficient and environmentally-friendly. This congress was also used as a platform to discuss the topic of interoperability and harmonisation of ITS, not only in Europe but also worldwide.

    SIS04 - Green ITS: applying cooperative ICT for energy-effi cient and environment-friendly mobility
    Organiser: Paul Kompfner, Head of Sector, Cooperative Mobility, ERTICO - ITS Europe
    Description of the session:
    This session will highlight those applications of cooperative systems intended to bring significant benefits for energy efficiency, reduced CO2 and better air quality. Presentations will feature applications developed and recently validated in field trials by the CVIS and COOPERS Integrated Projects of the EU’s 6th Framework Programme, ICT priority. Applications presented will include cooperative urban and motorway/interurban traffic management and control such as speed management, dynamic routing advice, and traffic information services to avoid congestion. Early results on the impact of cooperative applications on energy efficiency and environmental factors as well as user reactions will be presented from the CVIS and COOPERS test site trials. For the future, ‘Green ITS’ applications and services will increasingly support more efficient driving as well as road network management, and the session will conclude with an assessment of the potential for cooperative eco-driving assistance coupled with eco-traffic management to deliver significant environmental and efficiency benefits.

    SIS44 - Towards safer, cleaner and smarter mobility with cooperative systems
    Organiser: Juhani Jääskeläinen, Head of Unit, ICT for Transport, European Commission, DG INFSO
    Description of the session:
    The SAFESPOT, CVIS and COOPERS Integrated Projects, co-funded by the European Commission Information Society and Media, are working on the design and development of cooperative systems for a safer, cleaner and smarter mobility in Europe. In the past three and half years a huge number of European stakeholders, involved in these projects, have been working on the design and development of the technological building blocks and on the architecture for cooperative systems that are based on vehicle to vehicle and on vehicle to infrastructure communication. SAFESPOT, CVIS and COOPERS are now in their final phase of development of interoperable systems and services and are implementing different solutions for a safer, cleaner and smarter mobility in different test sites in Europe. This session gives an overview of the current development outcomes of SAFESPOT, CVIS and COOPERS and of their implementation in the European test sites. The session includes also one stakeholder’s perspective on the future deployment of the cooperative systems applications developed in the three projects.

    SIS17 - Towards a pan European architecture for cooperative systems: the PRE-DRIVE C2X, COMeSafety and E-FRAME projects

    Organiser: Luisa Andreone, Project Manager, Centro Ricerche Fiat - CRF, Italy


    Description of the session:
    The PRE-DRIVE C2X, COMeSafety and E-FRAME projects are working towards different aspects of the Common European Architecture for cooperative systems. The European ITS Communication Architecture provides the underlying communications features that are necessary to support cooperative systems and services. The development was started by COMeSafety in cooperation with SAFESPOT, CVIS and COOPERS. The PRE-DRIVE C2X project is now developing its building blocks following the Common European Architecture document drafted by COMeSafety. At the same time the E-FRAME project is extending the European ITS Framework (FRAME) Architecture, which provides tools to define the building blocks needed for ITS implementation, to include cooperative systems services, and support its use in Europe. A task force of these projects is now working with the Car2Car consortium and the relevant standardisation bodies, e.g. ETSI TC ITS, CEN and ISO TC 204, to create the required standards.

    ES 14 - Services deployment challenges for cooperative mobility

    With the successful development of enabling technologies such as Vehicle-to-Vehicle or Vehicle-to-Infrastructure systems, the next generation of ITS, cooperative mobility, is approaching deployment in all three regions. This session will address the main deployment challenges such as standardisation; strategies to ensure awareness of the safety, mobility and environmental impact benefits of cooperative mobility; and the need for global cooperation to promote political, financial and industrial success for the different programmes.
