The automated road
Fully integrated with the user, vehicle and operations:
The automated road will incorporate a fully integrated information, monitoring and control system; communicating between road users, vehicles and operators. It will support a cooperative vehicle-road system that will manage travel demand and traffic movements. It will measure, report and respond to its own condition, providing instant information on weather, incidents and travel information.
The automated road focuses on the full integration of roadside intelligence with Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) applications on the user, and in the vehicle, the services and the road operations and management itself. Innovation themes will address intelligent systems and strategies to maximise the utilisation of available infrastructure and monitor asset condition.
