The objective of activity 5 is to increase the level of ITS incident detection and management services to prevent incidents and mitigate the implication of accidents particularly for freight traffic. Implementing safety related ITS services like “Incident detection”, enable road operators to detect dangerous situations on the road (e.g. unmanaged obstacles or blockages on the road, bad weather or road surface conditions, unmanaged accident areas, wrong way drivers) early enough and in a manner that they can react accordingly thus preventing dangerous situations and possible accidents.
The deployments of activity 5 consist of projects which:
- Include private floating car data (FCD) to support classic detection facilities and to remove “blindness” for road sections where no other service is deployed (e.g. road sensors).
- Deploy new or upgrade existing traffic and weather monitoring devices including communication and central installations.
- Deploy new or upgrade existing incident warning devices.
