IN2CCAM consortium, according to the vision of Horizon Europe framework programme from 2021-2027 that aims to accelerate the implementation of innovative CCAM technologies and systems for passengers and goods, intends to develop, implement and demonstrate innovative services for connected and automated vehicles, infrastructures and users. The goal is to provide benefits to all citizens by implementing a full integration of CCAM services in the transport system. The main expected positive impacts for society are:
i) safety (i.e., reducing the number of road accidents caused by human error;
ii) environment (i.e., reducing transport emissions and congestion by smoothening traffic flow and avoiding unnecessary trips);
iii) inclusiveness (i.e., ensuring inclusive mobility and good access for all). To this aim the approach is based on the implementation and integration of enhanced Physical, Digital and Operational Infrastructures to enrich CCAM services and increase safety and traffic efficiency.
A set of physical, digital and operational solutions will be proposed and implemented in 4 Lead Living Labs (LLs): Tampere (Finland), Trikala (Greece), Turin (Italy) and Vigo (Spain). Moreover, two Follower LLs will collaborate in the design phase by providing ideas and data assessed by simulation test and validation: Bari (Italy) and Quadrilatero (Portugal).
