The purpose of the project is to study how Intelligent Infrastructure can enable safe, economically and environmentally efficient transports of goods. The knowledge will be applied by creating a demonstrator to show how the different actors can benefit from it and how they can apply it to their own organizations. The demonstrator will be built using standardized information to and from freight, terminals, vehicles and traffic.
The project has following goals:
Creating a specification of an Intelligent Infrastructure.
Design architecture and an interface for an Intelligent Infrastructure.
Create a virtual environment that is built upon the information infrastructure that will be used for developing and in a realistic way testing ITS services. The project, mainly the demonstrator, will be co-ordinated with Test Site Sweden.
Identify, test and demonstrate a how ITS services could support freight transportation with emphasis on transportations to and from terminals.
Describe a logistics process that demonstrates how infrastructure in a realistic way can create opportunities for efficient, flexible and secure freight transportation for companies and customers.
Describe how Intelligent Infrastructure in a realistic can create opportunities to achieve political goals for transportation such as safety, environment and accessibility.
