2021 - 2024


European cities face significant transport challenges, including safety, greenhouse gas emissions, congestion, and the emergence of disruptive technologies and new mobility modes. To meet these changes, TANGENT is developing 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.  

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 AIMSUNNational Technical University of Athens (NTUA)Rupprecht ConsultCEFRIELID4CARRennes Metropole, ATOBE, Transport for Greater ManchesterPanteia, and POLIS. 

TANGENT started in September 2021 and will end in August 2024.
