CIVITAS webinars

On Tuesday 19th November 2019, the H2020 project CoEXist and Civitas held a joint webinar on automation-ready transport modelling tools. The speakers addressed the question: How to include Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAVs) in traffic flow and transport demand simulations?

The overall aim of CoEXist is to prepare the transition phase during which automated and conventional vehicles will co-exist on cities’ roads and to make local authorities “automation-ready”.

CoEXist defines the concept of “automation-readiness” as: “The capability of making structured and informed decisions about the deployment of CAVs in a mixed road environment.”

The webinar guides the audience through the new functionalities of the automation-ready modelling tools to understand the benefits of such functionalities.

It is explained how automated vehicles could be modelled at a microscopic scale the operation of CAVs in platoons as well as at the macroscopic level, including the impacts of CAVs on transport demand and traffic time performance.

Urban Nodes

The webinar is organised in the framework of the study “Improving the efficiency of the transport system in urban nodes of the TEN-T core network”, which was carried out on behalf of DG MOVE. The 88 urban nodes are often the starting point or the final destination ("first” and “last mile") for passengers and freight moving. From the TEN-T perspective, the main aim is to remove urban bottlenecks and missing physical, technical and organisational links on the infrastructure. The main challenge for urban nodes is to improve multi-modal connections and at the same time consider connections with local and regional transport to ensure smooth first and last miles in passengers’ and freight transport. The new TEN-T policy, formulated in the TEN-T Guidelines (2013), is no longer perceived as merely a funding instrument for major infrastructure projects, but a policy which takes the network holistic planning approach as the main pillar.
