PRE TEST-FEST GLOSA HELMOND
On June 13 and 14 the GLOSA PRE-TESTFEST took place in Helmond. This Testfest is the third Testfest in a series of 5 Testfest’s that performs the international Intercor project. The Intercor project (NL, UK, FR, BE) is coordinated by Rijkswaterstaat and focuses on the roll-out of C-ITS services in Europe that are interoperable across national borders. The PRE-TESTFEST is organized by the Province of Noord-Brabant and the municipality of Helmond in cooperation with the UK partners. During these two days the Intercor standards for C-ITS GLOSA (Green Light Optimum Speed Advice) were tested by various suppliers from home and abroad.
V-tron has created its own ZOOF variety in cooperation with the ITS corridor team to support GLOSA services. During this two-day event V-tron gave several demonstrations to give an impression to the audience present. more information?
ISA (INTELLIGENT SPEED ADVICE)
Unadapted speed is the main cause of serious traffic accidents in addition to drunkenness. Assisting the driver with the speed behavior is therefore a crucial tool to prevent accidents. Navigation systems do offer speed information, but have little impact on driving behavior and offer no feedback about driving behavior. Since speed information is available through various channels (traffic sign detection, speed maps, open government data, traffic sign databases) this can be applied in the vehicle as an ADAS system (Advanced Driver Assistance System). Far-reaching assistance or even dynamic adaptation is called ISA, namely Intelligent Speed Assist or Adjustment. There are systems that advise speed alarms and give audible alarms (open ISA), adjust the speed (semi-open ISA) and even limit it (closed ISA). ISA as a principle has already been demonstrated many times as an effective solution for behavioral change and receives support at European level, but the success of ISA remains very limited for private individuals, companies and governments. More information about ISA’s international standard can be found here.
Talking Maps is a trial by the cooperating province of Noord-Brabant, the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management and the companies V-TRON and AND and will last a maximum of two years. The organizations involved signed a cooperation agreement on Intertraffic at the RAI in Amsterdam on 20 March.
According to Ruben Kragten, representative in the cooperation from V-TRON, the agreement is a good example of a collaboration between market parties and governments. “We want to test and apply our technical solutions in traffic. And we can not do that alone. We are happy to work together with the government, “he says.
