Herewith is an overview of the 2013 results of the other ERTICO Partnership projects
Projects – EcoMobility
eCoMove presented its results at the final event in Aachen, validating ecoservices with CO2 reductions of 4-25% by using eCoMove applications for eco-driving, fleet and traffic management based on V2X communication;
Compass4D targets improved road safety and energy efficiency through implementation of C-ITS in 7 European cities.
The mayors of Vigo, Copenhagen and Verona have shown full commitment to the project. During the ITS World Congress, Compass4D was considered a lighthouse initiative for the deployment of C-ITS in Europe by the European Commission;
