Call for cities: Join the ICT-Emissions exploitation group

05 June 2014

The ICT-Emissions project  is looking for cities to join the exploitation group. The project offers the possibility to apply its integrated methodology to evaluate the impact of ICT-related measures on mobility, vehicle energy consumption and CO2 emissions of vehicle fleets at the local scale.

This exercise will help validate the ICT-Emissions methodology with real world data and promote the wider take-up of the most appropriate ICT/ITS measures in cities.

We are especially looking for:

  • Existing case studies where ICT/ITS measures have been implemented, including the analyses of traffic and driving profiles before and after the implementation of ITS measures.
  • Existing before-after simulation studies made with AIMSUN traffic simulator.

Cities that have already joined are: Rome and Turin (Italy), Madrid (Spain), Rotterdam (the Netherlands), Zürich (Switzerland).

The exploitation group counts among its members stakeholders from the automotive industry, OEMs, ITS and ICT providers. These are: IVECO, Toyota Motor Europe, Bosch, Magneti Marelli, Centro Ricerche Fiat (CRF), AIMSUN/TSS, Nokia, AVL, Berner&Mattner Systemtechnik, PTV. And research centres: LAT Aristoteles University, TRANSyT - Universidad Politecnica de Madrid, the European Joint Research Center.

ICT-Emissions will hold its 4th Exploitation Group workshop after the summer break.
