Networked Traffic System

Economic and energy efficient driving

New information and communication technologies such as GPS/ Galileo, UMTS/ LTE and C2X enable novel methods for cooperative urban traffic management. By deployment of intelligent infrastructure and networking with intelligent vehicles, future advanced driver assistance systems will be able to implement instructions or advisories of strategic traffic management. In this way, traffic diversion and network optimization can take the energetic characteristics and other features of electric, hybrid, or conventionally powered vehicles into account. These key considerations will contribute to the goal of optimizing traffic and energy efficiency, achieving a high level of service (avoiding clogged roads), and reducing emissions in urban areas.
