The RTR Conference 2024 has concluded after a three-day programme full of insightful presentations and exciting glimpses into the future of road transport. The spotlight was on 76 Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe projects, featuring several ERTICO projects as frontrunners in areas like sustainable mobility and logistics, CCAM integration, and other key developments shaping the future of our roads.   Co-organised by ERTRAC, the 2ZERO and CCAM Partnerships and the European Commission’s DG for Research and Innovation, the RTR is a unique setting for EU-funded projects, connecting participants with the latest advancements in Green Vehicles, Urban Mobility, Logistics, Intelligent Transport Systems, Safety, and Automated Road Transport. Spanning 29 sessions, over 80 high-level speakers delved into pressing topics, from sustainability to the complexities of automated mobility, proving RTR’s value as a knowledge hub for the road transport sector.   Three ERTICO projects were presented in a session on “CCAM coordination frameworks, inclusiveness and societal impact”, namely SUNRISE, FAME and SINFONICA. Stefan de Vries from IDIADA and SUNRISE Project Coordinator presented the project and highlighted its main features, goals and characteristics. Mr de Vries updated the audience on the latest developments that the SUNRISE consortium has achieved since its start in September 2022 and underlined the impact on validated safety and security, which aligns with Connected, Cooperative, and Automated Mobility (CCAM) Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) objectives, particularly, improved robustness and resilience of CCAM technologies and systems. Dr Stephane Dreher, ERTICO Senior Manager and FAME project coordinator, highlighted the central role of FAME as the Cluster 7 coordination project, aligning its work to Research & Innovation (R&I) efforts on CCAM in Europe, supporting the European Commission and CCAM Association Partnership. He also underlined that the FAME Knowledge Base serves as a crucial platform for knowledge sharing and best practices, attracting global visitors, thus strengthening the European and international stakeholder mobility network. SINFONICA was represented by Giulia Renzi, Project Coordinator (ICOOR), who provided an overview of the project and its preliminary results towards making CCAM more inclusive and accessible. The project is currently conducting interviews to collect input from specific groups, including vulnerable road users, to understand their needs and expectations towards CCAM and create guidelines for the inclusive and equitable deployment of CCAM.       The first day of the conference also saw the presentation of the 5G-MOBIX project by Coen Bresser, ERTICO Senior Manager and project coordinator. In a session entirely dedicated to CCAM and 5G connectivity, he introduced the completed research and results achieved by all partners involved in the project before passing on the torch to the new EU-funded CCAM-related projects. The session was also attended by 5G-MOBIX sister projects on Cross-Border Connected and Automated Mobility: 5G-CARMEN and 5GCroCo.     Vasilis Sourlas (ICCS) opened the second day with a presentation of the PoDIUM project during the parallel session “CCAM and connectivity”. To accelerate the development of CCAM in Europe, PoDIUM developed a high-level platform architecture that describes the technological innovations to be implemented in the three Living Labs of the project to ensure interoperability, data truthfulness and software integrity of the technologies and networks deployed.    The latest achievements and results of SOLUTIONSplus were showcased during parallel session “Next generation electrified vehicles for urban and suburban use”. The project coordinator, Oliver Lah (UEMI), highlighted the SOLUTIONSplus unique approach to create a long-lasting transition towards low-carbon urban mobility and presented the electric vehicles deployed in the project’s Living Labs around the world.  ERTICO partner TNO, the coordinator of NextETRUCK unveiled a project’s innovative digital twin for the electric trucks and their ecosystems. Sensors feed real-time data to the cloud, where the twin calculates energy use and charging times. This two-way link between physical and digital realms facilitates optimised truck operations. The project’s multi-layered framework utilises AVL’s toolchain for seamless data management and analysis. The digital twin is part of NextETRUCK innovations to reach zero-emissions electric medium freight trucks that contribute to advancing the green transition in urban and sub-urban logistics.   The SHOW project was presented by its coordinator, UITP, during the ‘CCAM on the Roads’ session, along with the AWARD and Hi-Drive projects. John McSweeney provided a detailed overview of the project, which seeks to advance the deployment of shared, connected, and electrified automation in urban mobility, primarily within public transport. Its well-advanced pilots, with more than 80 vehicles operating across several EU countries, its novel technologies and services and the international collaboration it fosters make SHOW a role model for CCAM integration that upcoming initiatives can leverage and replicate.
