Current EU cooperative systems projects have demonstrated technical feasibility and positive user acceptance of cooperative mobility services. These common mobility services include dynamic navigation and intermodal routing and advice in real time but deliver no information from the traveler to traffic management.
Co-Cities is a pilot project to introduce and validate cooperative mobility services in cities and urban areas. It will develop a dynamic 'feedback loop' from mobile users and travelers to the cities' traffic management centres, and add elements of cooperative mobility to traffic information services.
These software extensions are based on the In-Time Commonly Agreed Interface (CAI), and the pilots will be run in the cities of Bilbao, Florence, Munich, Prague, Reading, and Vienna.
The result of this validation of cooperative mobility services will be an increased exchange of experience between public authorities and TISPs in Europe and a faster take-up of best practices.
