Innovative generation traffic management for empowering CAVs integration, cross-stakeholders collaboration and proactive multi-modal network optimisation.
The FRONTIER project, coordinated by Eurecat, aims to provide the network and integrated traffic management strategies of the future, considering new types and modes of transport and automated vehicles (including logical and physical requirements), the minimisation of pollution and capacity bottlenecks (including congestion and traffic jams), the reduction of accidents, and the need to reduce the cost of mobility for all users (both citizens, public authorities and businesses).
On the operational level FRONTIER facilitates the transition towards resilient multimodal autonomous mobility by establishing the processes of collaboration and arbitration among stakeholders while developing the business models that will address the commercial viability of the identified solutions.
FRONTIER will develop, apply and test autonomous management systems, secured by design, that will constantly evolve using data generated from real-time monitoring of the transportation system, knowledge generated by operators and decision makers, and simulation models providing system optimal solutions accounting for new mobility services and technologies.
The project, which is led through the Applied Artificial Intelligence Unit, will be validated in three pilot sites: Oxfordshire (the United Kingdom), Athens (Greece) and Antewerp (Belgium).
FRONTIER follows an efficient multidisciplinary approach bringing together partners from 5 universities and research institutes, 7 companies, 5 transport authorities from three diverse European countries, one testbed for traffic management and one international road federation.
