IS Group members participate in a new EU H2020 project to work for safer and more efficient traffic

29 Jun 2017

A European research project - C-MobILE, in which TU Eindhoven is one of the main partners, is working on making traffic safer, more comfortable and more efficient. The technology to be developed and used for this purpose will provide automated communication between vehicles, and between vehicles and their surrounding infrastructure. The project consortium of 37 partners received a grant of 12.5 million from the European subsidy program Horizon 2020 to realize this.

The goal of the project is to develop and use Cooperative-Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) to foster safer, more efficient and comfortable traffic. The technology solutions will allow to create a network of automatically connected cars, lorries, public transportation vehicles, vulnerable road users, emergency vehicles, and their surrounding infrastructure, such as traffic lights. This network will make it possible to provide several services, such as the real-time advice to road users on their optimal route, driving speed and choice of traffic lane, or warn them for an approaching ambulance or another vehicle ignoring a red light.

Contribution of TU/e on the project

TU/e researchers in the Department of Industrial Engineering & Innovation Sciences, and the Department of Mathematics & Computer Science, as well as the Strategic Research Area Smart Mobility are involved in the C-MobILE project. Within the TU/e, the project will be coordinated by dr. Oktay Türetken (IE&IS) and dr. Yanja Dajsuren (M&CS). Mark van den Brand (M&CS) and Paul Grefen (IE&IS) are involved as full professors.

The researchers of TU/e will contribute to the development of a C-ITS reference architecture that will structure the development and deployment of the systems and related services. The researchers will also contribute to the identification of the end-user needs, the definition of the requirements of the systems and services to be developed and used, and design and evaluate business models for their sustainable operation.

Test sites in Eindhoven

The Brainport region is one of eight European test sites for the C-MobILE project. Three test sites in this region are the crossing of the Professor Doctor Dorgelolaan on the route between the Eindhoven railway station and the TU/e Campus, the junction of 18 Septemberplein and Emmasingel, and the junction of Wolvendijk and Eisenhowerlaan. The project will investigate and offer C-ITS solutions on these three test sites, particularly directed towards enhancing traffic for different groups of vulnerable road users.
