Enhancing Integration and Interoperability of CCAM Ecosystem

The IN2CCAM consortium, in line with the vision of the 2021-2027 Horizon Europe programme which aims to accelerate the deployment of innovative CCAM technologies and systems for passengers and goods, intends to develop, implement and demonstrate innovative services for connected and automated vehicles, infrastructure and users.

The aim is to provide benefits to all citizens through the implementation of full integration of CCAM services into the transport system. The main positive impacts expected for society are:

  • safety (i.e. reduction in the number of road accidents caused by human error;

  • environment (i.e. reduction of emissions and transport congestion by smoothing traffic flow and avoiding unnecessary trips);

  • inclusion (i.e. ensuring inclusive mobility and good access for all).

For this objective, the approach is based on the implementation and integration of improved physical, digital and operational infrastructure to enrich CCAM services and increase traffic safety and efficiency.

Ubiwhere’s actions will involve the installation of Connected Street Furniture in Guimarães, a modular concept of light pole with state-of-the-art technology. This allows municipalities to future proof their smart city and Mobile Network Operators to cost-effectively deploy their 5G solution. The Connected Urban Mobility solutions are complemented with a management platform that allows tenants and owners/landlords to perform leasing and asset management tasks. In addition, Ubiwhere promotes the implementation of a management system to collect real-time data in the Municipality of Guimarães that will allow the city to monitor more than 900 on-street and off-street parking spaces. The city implemented the Urban Platform, UW’s data management platform, where multiple sets of information (such as observations of traffic flows, incidents, weather and buildings) were integrated, being a Gartner case study on Location Intelligence, and a good practice of the European Commission.
