Seven European cities/regions (Bordeaux, Copenhagen, Helmond, Newcastle, Thessaloniki, Verona and Vigo) have united their forces in addressing road safety issues, traffic efficiency problems and the negative environmental impacts that road transport currently brings. These cities, together with the rest of the industrial and research partners from the Compass4D consortium, strongly believe that cooperative mobility solutions can bring benefits to the key stakeholders and improve the lives of their citizens.

The key driving force behind Compass4D is to deploy cooperative Intelligent Transport Services ITS) to improve road safety, as well as enhance the energy efficiency of road transport.
Cooperative mobility solutions have the potential to improve the degree of utilization of existing infrastructure, making them very cost effective compared to infrastructure extensions. However even the money for ITS based mobility investments is scarce and every solution needs to be optimized with respect to costs. For the cooperative mobility solutions, this means that they need to be globally harmonized in order to obtain markets of scale. Therefore Compass4D partners will work closely with their US and Japanese associates to ensure that the deployed cooperative mobility solutions will not only follow the latest global developments in this field, but also will actively drive them. This work will be done in a close cooperation with the already established EU-US Task Force.
Another important consideration prior to the real deployment of cooperative solutions is proving to key stakeholders that cooperative services do have a positive business case, and that all other deployment barriers have been removed.
Objective 1: Ensure successful deployment and after-project life of the three piloted services, aiming at proving both safety and energy efficiency benefits.
Objective 2: Globally harmonize specifications for the three piloted services, through close cooperation with the US & Japanese counterparts, other CIP pilots and relevant standardization bodies.
Objective 3: Establish and follow an agreed harmonized testing, installation, monitoring and assessment strategy, as well as a common strategy for deployment of all three specified cooperative systems across all pilot sites.
Objective 4: Prove safety and energy efficiency benefits to all relevant stakeholders by collecting critical mass of data in 12 months full-scale operations of selected cooperative systems at each pilot site.
Objective 5: Collaborate with relevant standardisation bodies, mainly but not exclusively ETSI and CEN, in order to ensure full interoperability of the deployed cooperative solutions.
Objective 6: Create a set of best practices on the basis of the pilot site operations including guidelines, business models, manuals, and training material.
|Expected Impact||How Compass4D will address impact|
|Contribution to the deployment of harmonised C-ICT systems in at least 4 countries||Compass4D will achieve this expected impact by:
1. Implementing cooperative services on 344 vehicles 2. Implementing 111 cooperative road side units 3. Implementing these services in 7 countries 4. Operate the services during a 12-months testing period 5. Derive conclusions on the full deployment of the services (best practices, business models, etc) 6. Ensuring interoperability between all implementations through strong links to relevant standardisation (ETSI and CEN/ISO) and through developing a certification framework for the piloted services.
|Use of globally harmonised standards in ICT for transport||Through close cooperation between Compass4D and its associates at the US DoT and Japanese MLIT, the consortium will not only use the globally harmonised solutions, wherever they exist today, but will actively drive the global harmonisation of the piloted services. This will be done in a close cooperation with the EU – US Task Force to which Compass4D partners are already contributing.
Whenever possible, reference implementations of Cooperative ITS will be shared between partners and regions. Results and concerns collected from pilot sites will be fed back to ETSI or CEN/ISO standardisation. Compass4D will prepare the roadside infrastructure in Bordeaux to showcase global interoperability of the technology and harmonisation of services. Both Asia-Pacific and Americas regions will be invited to showcase together Cooperative ITS at the Bordeaux ITS world congress in 2015.
|Assessed impact of cooperative systems||Compass4D will design a harmonised experimental design using the established FESTA methodology for Field Operational Tests. Compass4D will acquire enough data on the effects of the applications under test across 7 pilot sites in order to evaluate the real benefits of these systems. It is expected that the diversity of the pilot sites in terms of culture, geography, size, local policy and traffic management, will allow making the results applicable to many other municipalities in Europe and therefore guide the local policy makers into informed deployment decisions. The pilot activities will also demonstrate to the local municipalities what is the added-value of cooperative ITS for their urban traffic management. A costbenefit analysis and a solid business model will show in concrete terms how valuable the deployment of cooperative ITS can be for the local authority.|

Applications and equipment
The two safety-related Compass4D services, Road Hazard Warning (RHW) and Red Light Warning (RLW), will support the driver by providing (audio and/or visual) in-vehicle notifications when the driver approaches a dangerous situation, e.g. traffic queues in a dangerous location, or if the driver risks running a red light.
The Energy Efficiency services will provide recommended speeds to drivers of all vehicles when approaching an intersection, depending on local policies. It will also give priority at intersections for given vehicle types, e.g. emergency vehicles or delayed buses.
A combination of mature technologies developed in earlier R&D projects and readily available (pre-) commercial equipment will be used. Dedicated Short Range Communication (i.e. ETSI G5) and cellular networks (i.e. 3G/LTE) will be used, following ETSI TC ITS standards.
