Second Survey for DG MOVE study on Real Time Traffic Information

DG MOVE invites stakeholders to give their thoughts on Activities 3.2, 3.3 and 3.4 of the new working programme of the ITS Directive, related to the possible revision of Delegated Regulation No 2015/962 on Real-Time Traffic Information Services (RTTI).

RTTI has become an essential part of every commuter’s journey. With the growing use of navigation devices and applications on mobile phones, these information services are now at our fingertips, making journeys smoother and more efficient.

However, a vast amount of data- from both public and private stakeholders- is required to improve the functionality of these services.

At present, two main pieces of legislation: the Directive 2010/40/EU, and the Delegated Regulation 2015/962 cover EU-wide real-time traffic information services.

VVA Brussels, together with Coffey and TIS, have been appointed by the European Commission – Directorate General for Mobility and Transport (MOVE) – to carry out a study to investigate the impacts of extending the geographical scope of specification set by Delegated Regulation 2015/962 for some data types and the possibility to include new data types.

The study focuses on the three areas identified in the Working Programme of the study for possible inclusion in the revised Delegated Regulation 2015/962, which are the following:

  • Revision of current specifications for EU-wide real-time traffic information services;
  • Recharging and refuelling points and stations; and
  • Access to vehicle generated data for road operation purposes.

Survey respondents are invited to:

  • Provide insights on expected cost and benefits for including additional data categories in the revision of Delegated Regulation 2015/962
  • Assess the possibility to expand the geographical scope of the Delegated Regulation (i.e. beyond TEN-T, motorways and priority zones defined by Member States)
  • Identify data gaps and optimal geographical coverage of RTTI (Real-Time Traffic Information) data
  • Understand the opportunity for the use of in-vehicle generated data, in a business-to-government context, for road operation purposes
  • Explore the possibility to mandate the availability for essential data types
  • Validate the identified needs in terms data quality.

The survey may take 15-45 minutes (depending on how many of the sections you chose to answer).

Respondents who complete the questionnaire could be invited to participate in the final workshop meeting that shall take place in November or December and cover findings of the study.

The deadline for completion is 30 September 2020 at 23h59 CET.
