2.5 million euros for EDDY: ITS research project on dynamic map data launched
In November, the three-year research and development project EDDY (European Digital Dynamic Mapping) was launched under the leadership of the Authority for Transport and Mobility Transition (BVM), which is working with six partners from research and SMEs as well as other major European cities to develop standards for openly accessible high-resolution dynamic map data. Until now, such maps have been the property of major navigation services. EDDY now provides the basis for cities, municipalities and local authorities to make the data themselves available in an urban dynamic map in a public domain-oriented manner.
High-resolution, dynamic maps are needed to guide urban traffic, for example in route finding, especially on routes with road works. The goal is to reduce emissions, protect vulnerable road users, and enable higher levels of automated driving. The project partners can use specially equipped vehicles to test the use cases on the Hamburg Test Track for Automated and Connected Driving (TAVF).
In the course of the project, static (traffic signs, road works, etc.) and dynamic map data (weather, traffic situation, etc.) are processed and made available via the Urban Data Platform on the Internet and via the infrastructure using WLAN-based ITS-G5 communication. Cooperation with other major European cities ensures the use of defined standards and the transferability of the results. The collected static and dynamic data as well as technical and legal specifications are made available to stakeholders from research, business and administration in an Urban Dynamic Map.
