The pressure due to tight delivering time schedules on the one hand and difficult traffic conditions on the European network on the other hand makes the work for hauliers and truck drivers more and more difficult. With the support of special truck navigation systems hauliers and truck drivers are able to plan their routes in a better and more adaptive way.
Hence one goal of the freight traffic focused URSA MAJOR 2 project is to support truck navigation with valuable and reliable information about the travel conditions on the URSA MAJOR corridor. According to the EasyWay Service clustering of traveller information services the URSA MAJOR 2 concept to support truck navigation these information - where possible tailored to HGV - are threefold:
Information about traffic conditions (LoS) and travel times.
Information about forecast and real-time events
Information about recommended routes or storage possibilities (according to actual long distance or cross border TMPs)
