OPTIMUM is an EU-funded project that looks beyond state-of-the-art IT solutions to improve transit, freight transportation and traffic connectivity throughout Europe. The project aims to bring proactive and problem-free mobility to modern transport systems by introducing and promoting interoperability, adaptability and dynamicity through its tailor-made applications. Solutions to the problems of excessive carbon dioxide emissions, high congestion levels and diminished quality of life require collected, processed and broadcasted data from various sensors, systems, service providers and crowdsourcing.
Using state-of-the-art information and communication technologies, OPTIMUM will carry out three pilot projects focusing, respectively, on multi-modal routing, smart motorhome analytics and dynamic toll charging. This new, eight-page brochure provides information on the background, proposed solutions and projected impacts of each of the three pilot studies.
The OPTIMUM project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme and is being implemented by a consortium that includes the REC's Smart Cities and Mobility Topic Area.
