Newborn Intelligent Infrastructure Working Group ready to start its activities
Creation date: 07 August 2008
A new Working Group was created in the eSafety Forum: the eSafety Intelligent Infrastructure Working Group (IIWG).
The newborn Intelligent Infrastructure Working Group (IIWG) of the eSafety Forum is ready to start its activities. The first meeting of the working group was held on 18 September at the eSafety Support premises in Brussels.
The IIWG focuses on the road infrastructure side of cooperative systems with the objectives of identifying the expectations towards intelligent infrastructure and achieving a balance between the goals of the road operators and administrations, and the industry.
Intelligent Infrastructure includes ICT and, more specifically, cooperative systems on the roadside as well as the back-office systems. In this context, cooperative means cooperation and communication among systems - covering infrastructure, vehicle and more generally user systems such as nomadic devices.
The IIWG will identify issues which need to be solved at the infrastructure level, in order to ensure the implementation of the most relevant cooperative services on the road infrastructure side, with a focus on the trunk road network. The IIWG will also identify the most mature and relevant cooperative services as well as their essential implementation issues and key stakeholders, and aims to develop detailed recommendations concerning the deployment of intelligent infrastructure in Europe in the near future.
The IIWG is a European Group, open to all active participants of the eSafety Forum. All concerned stakeholders representing Road Authorities, Motorway Operators and Road Users as well as Automotive and ICT Industry stakeholders interested in cooperative systems are specially invited to join.
The IIWG is co-chaired by representatives from ASECAP (Association Européenne des Concessionnaires d’Autoroutes et d’Ouvrages à Péage) and CEDR (Conference of European Directors of Roads). You can find more information and the draft Terms of Reference at the Working Group webpage.
