SP2 Core Technology Integration     


  1. Ensure that a common platform for vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication is made available for development and test activities. This platform will incorporate the latest results of EU, national and industry projects and of European standardisation; 
  2. Ensure the technical coordination
  3. Integration of technical components with applications, i.e. of the communication platform with in-vehicle units developed in SP3 and SP4 as well as traffic control systems developed in SP5; eco- messages, map and models will be integrated with software in in-vehicle units and traffic control systems.

eCoMove Core Technologies

  • A common vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication platform for use in the vehicles and at the roadside, based on the latest results from European, national and industry projects and compliant with latest standards;
  • Eco messages, protocols and interfaces for information exchange between cooperative entities: Eco-Floating Vehicle Data about a vehicle’s progress, destination and fuel consumption is collected and disseminated to other vehicles and traffic control centre; Eco Traffic Situational Dataabout the traffic conditions is sent from the infrastructure to vehicles;
  • A digital ecoMap enhanced with static and dynamic eco-attributes  such as slope, historical speed profile and energy consumption data but also traffic data and information about other vehicles;
  • The ecoCooperative Horizon provides the most probable preview of the road ahead taking into account fuel consumption information collected from ecoMaps, traffic management centres and other vehicles, as well as from the dynamic ecoNavigation (which provides the calculated route that is the basis for the ecoCooperativeHorizon Most Probable Path);
  • An ecoSituational Model integrating vehicle driving behaviour and dynamics of nearby traffic to determine the optimal driving strategy and predict how the traffic situation will evolve in the reaction time frame of the driver;
  • An ecoStrategic Model translating the knowledge about high fuel consumption factors included in the situational (microscopic) level to the entire road network (macroscopic level), as a basis for the traffic management and control strategies;
