the European ITS Platform (EU EIP) monitors and analyses technical progresses in ITS implementation and the deployment of ITS Services, based on material provided by the ITS corridors or other European ITS implementation projects. In fact, one of the goals of activity 2 "Monitoring and Dissemination" is to constantly monitor the application context of harmonized ITS deployment on European countries and to collect experiences made and best practice from the operational level of in the ITS Corridor projects and beyond. Following this goal the Activity 2 consists at the moment of three expert groups for Traffic management , Traffic & Traveler Information Services and Freight & Logistics to discuss and develop the related topics.
To improve the knowledge of these three expert groups and distribute the information about existing and new ITS developments back into the Member States, an harmonized template for the data collection of the best practices for the ITS Deployment Guidelines requirements and three filled examples has been created. Link to examples: [F&L], [TMS], [TIS]
The EG members are currently contacting their national operational level to send them the templates and the examples.
The national road operators and road authorities are kindly asked to fill the templates for new representative implementations. Nevertheless all other parties in or outside EU EIP and involved in ITS system and service implementation are asked to provide to the Expert Groups a filled template and forward it to the EU EIP platform as soon as possible but not later than 29th of September.
The collected information will be used on one hand as input for the yearly best practice report which is due to be completed until the end of 2017 and on the other hand for the improvement of the ITS Deployment Guidelines (which include also best practices, see part B).
Thank you very much for all your efforts and contributions.
