ICT-Emissions exploitation group kicked off in Amsterdam
In this meeting ICT-Emissions partners reported on the work accomplished to date, including presentations on the selection of ICT measures for assessing their impact on CO2 emissions (IVECO), the case of Madrid (presented by TRANSyT-UPM), and energy and emissions modeling approaches in ICT-Emissions.
The meeting was held in concomitance with the Polis working group meeting on Mobility & Traffic Efficiency who gathered to talk open data and the ITS Directive. Overall the exploitation group meeting was attended by 20 delegates, mainly representing public authorities (Dublin, Rotterdam, Amsterdam, Utrecht, province of North Brabant), public transit authority in Milan (ATM), the Dutch Traffic and Transport Knowledge Resource Centre (kpVV), the Norwagian Public Road Administration (NPRA).
In the afternoon the group participated in a technical visit to Amsterdam Traffic Control Centre.
This first meeting of the ICT-Emissions exploitation group was meant to present the ICT-Emissions project and its methodology to cities. It also aimed at engaging them in a dialogue with the project and at assessing the interest of local authorities in exchanging information with ICT Emissions to assess CO2 emissions for their local ITS measures.
A second meeting is planned to meet with the automotive industry and OEMs in 2013.
