The Companion project was carried out by the Società Autostrada Brescia Verona Vicenza Padova, manager of the 146-km-long motorway section E66 (A4) between Brescia and Padova.
Serious accidents occurr because of fog and induced the Concessionary Society to implement a system aimed at timely warning motorway users when visibility is very low. The aim is to minimize the risk of accidents and to “drive” users within the foggy area, encouraging them to reduce speed to match the low visibility. This system consists in apposite lighting posts placed on the carriageway side. It also aims at avoiding other risks, such as the formation of queues and traffic slowdowns in particular.
COMPASS4D is a European project aiming to increase drivers’ safety and comfort by reducing the severity of road accidents as well as avoiding queues and traffic jams. Seven European cities (Bordeaux, Copenhagen, Helmond, Newcastle, Thessaloniki, Verona and Vigo) have joined forces with the shared objective of substantially improving road safety, increasing energy efficiency and reducing level of congestions for road transport by implementing Cooperative ITS.
Italy has transposed the ITS Directive (Dir. 2010/40/CE) through Article 8 of the Law-Decree n. 179/2012. Complying to that article, this Decree sets the basic guidelines to ensure the design, deployment and development of ITS in Italy, in a way which is coordinated, integrated and consistent with policies and activities at EU level. These guidelines are the methodological and operational basis for the subsequent definition of a national Action Plan on the development of ITS
EasyTrip was a crossborder project financed by the European Territorial Cooperation Programme “Greece-Bulgaria 2007-2013”. It aimed to improve crossborder accessibility between the regions of action through the development of a web-based tool which offered e-mobility services by using advanced ICT technologies that spread the information to all travelers using channels easily reachable from everyone (mobile phone applications, internet, VMS).
EasyTrip services addressed the needs of road users, tourists and relevant authorities. The main target was to enhance sustainable and green mobility at trip ends, to improve road safety, to promote all areas of intervention supporting their economies and development giving also equal opportunities and fair competition and to minimize environmental impacts of traffic in the crossborder area.
