Next Generation ITS (NextGenITS)
This project reflects the intention of some of the most prominent players in the Belgian ICT sector to cooperate with research institutes and governments to develop and demonstrate a number of ITS services (ITS: Intelligent Transport Services).
DistriNet will investigate how to integrate different ITS applications on a generic multi-application platform and design a distributed software architecure that is able to support the extreme security, management and scalability issues at stake.
The NextGenITS project is use case driven; the project will focus on five promising ITS services: e-call, traffic information, intelligent speed adaptation, road charging and cooperative vehicle systems. Each of these services have considerable potential in both a social and commercial context. The different services will be based on European standards to ensure interoperability between different market players and across geographical borders.
The NextGenITS project is executed in close collaboration with other regional and national initiatives within the framework of a European FP7 project proposal. The project aims at accelerating the introduction of next-generation ITS services to ensure sustainable mobility in Flanders and to reach ambitious safety and environmental targets, and acting as key enabler in order to prepare industry for the European and global ITS market which is generally expected to grow exponentially between 2010 and 2015.
