TANGENT aims to develop new tools to optimize traffic operations in a coordinated and dynamic way from a multimodal perspective, including automated/non-automated vehicles, passengers, and freight transport.
Starting in September 2021 and ending in August 2024, TANGENT is establishing new technologies and services for transport systems managers, including travel behaviour modelling, traffic network prediction, stimulation models, transport network optimization tools, and decision-making support tools like dashboards to enhance multimodal transport management. These methods are then tested in Rennes (FR), Lisbon (PT), Greater Manchester (UK), and virtually in Athens (GR) using actual data from various modes of transport.
The project is expected to enhance multimodal networks for passengers and freight, reduce congestion, mitigate greenhouse gas emissions, improve safety and security, and decrease the cost of mobility for all, amongst others.
TANGENT is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme and is coordinated by the Universidad de Deusto. The project partners include AIMSUN, National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), Rupprecht Consult, CEFRIEL, ID4CAR, Rennes Metropole, ATOBE, Transport for Greater Manchester, Panteia, and POLIS.
