Compass4D Final Event – One Step Closer to C-ITS Deployment in Cities


Compass4D final event took place in the Palais des Congres (room Amphi C) on Wednesday 7 October 2015 from 13:00 to 18:00.

The European CIP co-founded project started three years ago and it came to an end in 2015 with an exceptional final event and demonstration during the ITS World Congress in Bordeaux on 7 October 2015. For three years, Compass4D worked with European cities, road operators, vehicle fleets and road transport stakeholders in moving towards sustainable deployment of cooperative ITS (C-ITS) services.

Compass4D final event showed how the project is deploying and ensuring after-project life of its three piloted C-ITS services (Road Hazard Warning, Red Light Violation Warning, and Energy Efficiency Intersection) in the seven Compass4D cities (Bordeaux, Copenhagen, Helmond, Newcastle, Thessaloniki, Verona and Vigo) and how it is setting best practise in other cities and regions in The Netherlands, Finland, Spain and Belgium. The event also showed the economic, environmental and social benefits of the Compass4D services in cities as well as examples of current and planned investments between cities and the industry partners involved (fleet, service providers, telecommunication operators, etc.).

The final event was organised in the form of a dynamic discussion with short introductions and contributions from high level speakers from the Compass4D consortium and local authorities of European cities. The event officially kicked off by the ceremonial signature of the Memorandum of Understanding by the representatives of the seven European cities for the project continuation in 2016.Please click below to download the following documents:
