The Danish test site is situated in the centre of Copenhagen. The road section chosen for the pilot test is one of the busiest bus routes in Copenhagen. Running from the main central station through the inner city to the East Gate station, the pilot site connects to several key traffic arteries leading traffic on and off, while ongoing, underground construction and a high number of mixed road users make traffic congestion and punctuality, especially for buses, a major challenge.

In Copenhagen 87 busses with routes on the pilot site are participating in the project. For the bus fleet, the Energy Efficiency Intersection will be the primary service and will be implemented in all of the 21 intersections that the pilot site covers. One of the most appreciated options of this service by bus drivers and passengers is the green priority, which will result in a more efficient and reliable public transport. The drivers will also receive information of the traffic light status making them capable to adjust their speed to a more comfortable and smooth journey, resulting in less fuel consumption and particle emission.   

The Road Hazard Warning service will be implemented as static warnings in 2 non-signalized pedestrian crossings and dynamic warnings of detected pedestrians in 1 non-signalized pedestrian crossing along the network. There will also be a dynamic warning of HGV’s leaving a construction site. Magnetometer detection will send information to the nearest Road Side Unit and further to an On Board Unit in vehicles approaching the location. The driver will then be warned when HGV’s are leaving the construction site.

The hydrogen vehicles and trucks participating in the pilot test will get more or less the same services as the buses – except for the green priority.
