Otherwise, joining the demo directly on site (depending on the free places and the size of the demo) is also possible.

Here are a few of the highlights you can look forward to:

The eCall Journey

The eCall Journey will show live demonstrations of eCall, the emergency call system, from car to control room. For the first time, this demonstration will also show the potential future of eCall for powered two-wheelers (motorcycles), lorries and coaches as part of the I_HeERO project, funded by the European Commission and the demonstration coordinated by the Satellite Applications Catapult. The I_HeERO team will present an update on eCall development progress including the challenges they have addressed in developing the system for particular vehicles, such as those carrying hazardous loads or locations where terrestrial communication is not possible as well as the integration of Earth observation data with PSAP software. Visitors will be able to see the features that the next generation of e-Call may include and experts will be on-hand to answer questions. Demonstration vehicles including trucks, bikes and cars will be on the stand showcasing e-Call and a demonstration system for the control room (PSAP) linked to Earth observation software.

Cross-border autonomous mobility service by VEDECOM

A cross-border, autonomous and on-demand mobility service might sound like a myth to some people, but it will be soon a reality thanks to a project by the VEDECOM institute: GoSmart!
To go beyond the limits of autonomous vehicles, two advanced technologies will be demonstrated: autonomous driving and monitoring with a centralized control station.
For the congress, VEDECOM will showcase its new service on a public road between France and Germany.
VEDECOM welcomes the participants at its departure village located near the “Pont de l’Europe” in Strasbourg every day from 10:00 to 12:00 and 14:00 to 16:00.

SCOOP@F vehicles available!

Since 2014, France has invested in a big C-ITS deployment project called SCOOP@F. With 3000 vehicles to be deployed on 2000 km of roads, this is the biggest pilot deployment project in Europe.
After 3 years of common work, the final vehicles from Renault and PSA are now available. You will be able to experience them in this demonstration.
During a 20 minutes ride in a Renault and a PSA equipped car, the benefits of C-ITS technologies for drivers and road managers will be shown to you through several interactive user cases presented along a trip on the Strasbourg road network.
Though the road operators DIR-EST and Strasbourg metropolis are not part of SCOOP@F , they are part of C-ROADS France, which is a son project built on SCOOP@F.
The demonstration relies on ITS G5-communication between equipped cars and road side units piloted and monitored by a platform settled in the DIR-EST traffic control center.

Both projects SCOOP@F and C-ROADS France, supported and co funded by the European Commission, involve car manufacturers, road operators and various academic partners. France is a core member of the C-ROADS platform which gathers ongoing C-ITS deployment activities in Europe. The work is lead by the French Ministry of Transport. It will feed thoughts about ways for the development of connected cars and the deployment of C-ITS across Europe.

Location: South to the Exhibition Hall – angle in the Richard Strauss’ street

Format: 30 minutes in groups of 6 people

Schedule: 

  • Monday: 19:00 – 20:00

Better Mobility Today

To accelerate the deployment of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), an effort is needed to both better explain the benefits of ITS – justifying investment – and design well-thought interconnexion between transportation systems.
A tool developed by ENGIE Siradel with the Eurometropole Strasbourg displays how the digital tools of ITS enable the citizen to visualize the impact of mobility changes, and to be included in the design process. Come explore in 3D the impact of reclaiming the embankment of Strasbourg on pollution and noise!
A full scale demonstrator installed by ENGIE Ineo aims at showcasing how well-chosen interconnexion between ITS can deliver concrete value with real use cases. The precious services already provided by smart parking, carsharing and traffic management systems can upgrade each other. On an evening night, a citizen is incentivized to use a shared car, as she gets priority at traffic lights. When she opens her carsharing application she visualizes the available parking spots at destination, then she can ride surely without the angst of a full parking area. As traffic is smoother and cars are shared, the city becomes greener, and mobility is better. Come take a ride and experience those services with us.

Location: South to the Exhibition Hall – angle in the Richard Strauss’ street

Format: 15 minutes in groups of 3 people

Schedule: 

  • Monday: 18:00 – 20:00

CO-GISTICS: Cooperative ITS applied to logistics services

CO-GISTICS is proposing a Cooperative ITS interoperability demonstration with of 2 services: Speed advice (also called GLOSA) and Cargo Transport Optimisations.
The GLOSA (Green Light Optimal Speed Advice) service, when approaching one of the 5 equipped traffic lights in Strasbourg, will give speed advice to the driver in order to reach the intersection with a green light.
GEOLOC SYSTEMS has developed its own V2X facilities integrating the most recent version of SPAT/MAP and most recent security standards.  Our GLOSA application has been adapted and receives real-time information from the traffic light controllers adapted for the occasion by Fareco. The demonstration is completed by a second vehicle provided by Euro Metropole of Strasbourg.

Cargo transport optimisation has been added to our product by integrating these services to the GLOSA interface. The driver receives and sends information concerning the delivery and pick up of goods. He will also have access to an appointment management service and an eCMR for paperless management of dangerous goods.

Finally our demo has the ambition of being interoperable with another GLOSA application developed in the frame of the European MOBiNET project by Dynniq.

MOBiNET will integrate the MAP/SPaT in its framework for connected and location based communication hosted by Dynniq, sharing the same framework as the testsites with GLOSA in Vigo, Trondheim and Helmond. Additionally, cross-border interoperability for parking apps will also be demonstrated. Parking information will be published in the MOBiNET service directory. This means all parking services connected to MOBiNET will automatically be able to use the local data from Strasbourg, irrespective of their country of origin.

MOBiNET is a European e-market place of mobility services for business and end users. The project addresses the current frustration that widespread deployment of ITS services is hindered by the complexity of the real world of mobility information and infrastructure, which prevents seamless coverage of services across borders throughout Europe.

Boulevard of start-ups & innovative companies

 

The Start-up Boulevard and Innovative Companies is a project undertaken by the Eurometropolis of Strasbourg and will take place at the Strasbourg Convention and Exhibition Centre. The following start-ups are present:

  • Prends ma place
  • Awaken
  • Knot
  • Strataggem
  • Bikerr
  • Freshmile

In association with innovative companies like Novea and Citiz, they will present their services in mobility by means of an interactive card game. Players will be given a specific role to play. Different roles include: a tourist, a family, a Tech aficionado, someone for zero-emission, a total fan Car driver, a person who needs assistance or a businessman. The ‘character’ will then be presented with a specific situation involving intelligent and innovative mobility. To find the solution they will have to combine options proposed by at least 3 of the start-ups or innovative companies in the Boulevard.

For example: the visitor is an electric car driver and needs to recharge the battery of his electric car or needs to use soft mobility solutions. They will be challenged to find their solutions by meeting with startups or companies providing the appropriate new mobility services.
