DSC 3110

We are pleased to announce that one of the partners of the project eKLISI, COSMOTE, won the GOLD Award for the project in the category "Innovative Mobile R & D project" of the Mobile Excellence Awards 2015 (http://www.m-awards.gr/). The ceremony took place in Athens on 24 June 2015. 

The research project "eΚΛΗΣΗ", that was coordinated by ICCS with the participation of COSMOTE and SPACE Hellas, aimed to implement a national pilot application of the pan-European in-vehicle emergency call service "eCall" based on 112, the common European Emergency number.mony took place in Athens, on 24 June 2015.

One step closer to C-ITS deployment in cities

The European CIP co-founded project started three years ago and it is coming to an end this year 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 will show 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 will show the economic, environmental and social benefits of the Compass4D services in cities as well as bringing examples of current and planned investments between cities and the industry partners involved (fleet, service providers, telecommunication operators, etc.).

The final event will be 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 agenda will be uploaded soon on the Compass4D website.

The event will be held in the Palais des Congrès (room: Amphi C) on Wednesday 7 October from 13:00 to 18:00.

The full-potential of Compass4D will be unleashed from 5-9 October 2015 on the urban and inter-urban public roads of Bordeaux with a live demonstration of its C-ITS services.

DSC01829A dedicated to TEAM workshop entitled: “Elastic Collaborative Mobility and applications: Towards the improvement of the Urban Mobility System” was successfully held, on Friday 20 May, 2016 at the Hellenic Ministry of Infrastructure Transport and Networks facilities. The Workshop was organized by ICCS in the framework of the TEAM Euro Eco Challenge activities aiming on the promotion and evaluation of the 11 TEAM applications developed and tested on the TEAM pilot sites located in 8 European cities (Athens, Trikala, Berlin, Torino, Trento, Gothenburg, Tampere, and Helsinki). 

During this Workshop the Greek partners of TEAM, i.e. ICCS, e-Trikala, INFOTRIP and COSMOTE, presented the TEAM applications to several Greek stakeholders, including road operators, public transport operators/companies and private ITS companies as well as national authorities and collected their opinion and evaluation for the TEAM applications that are implemented in Greece through a series of respective   questionnaires. The responses of the stakeholders will be used by the Greek pilot site partners to further shade light to both the evaluation of the TEAM applications but also to understand the potential for their future deployment.
