Abstract

Aalborg University and two local companies have over the past four years developed and tested an ITS Platform, which can be used for communication with cars and for providing a number of services to the drivers. The purpose has been to perform a technological test of the possible use of a hidden GPS box with data connection to a backend server. The ITS Platform project has had a budget of DKK 33 million (app € 4.4) and it has demonstrated that boxes which register the position of the cars can be helpful to drivers in many ways. Establishing dynamic traffic information and support systems for safer and more economic driving is technologically possible. Big Data from the system can provide traffic authorities with a better basis for decision for their traffic planning. Last, but not least, it is possible to establish payment systems. The project has also shown that the boxes in the cars do not have to be very intelligent. This is gradually taken over by applications on smart phones. The ITS Platform with 425 test drivers is now completely developed and can be used for technological testing of e.g. payment systems.
