Research project: NEARCTIS: A Network of Excellence for Advanced Road Co-operative traffic management in the Information Society

Currently Active: 

NEARCTIS is a collaborative EC-sponsored project involving a number of leading Academic Institutions across Europe in the field of co-operative traffic management. It aims to develop research and education requirements for the future and to set up a sustainable network in this area.

NEARCTIS draws together expertise within Europe and establishes a working network for the research and development needs of co-operative traffic management systems (i.e. those involving communications between vehicles and the infrastructure). As one of eight partners, TRG are contributing to defining research and experimental requirements for traffic modelling, traffic optimisation and control, positioning and communications systems, multi-modal user networks and evaluation. TRG is also leading the work on Education and Training in Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) and co-operative traffic management, which includes: the identification of user requirements; existing provision in Europe; and developing recommendations for the way forward.
