NordicWay 2 and NordicWay 3 are C-ITS pilot projects that enable vehicles, infrastructure and network operators to communicate safety hazards and other information from roads in the Nordic countries between different stakeholders.
The projects are a collaboration between public and private partners in Finland, Norway, Sweden and Denmark and build on the achievements from the previous NordicWay project.
NordicWay 3 - Urban Connection, has more cities involved than NordicWay 2.

Watch the introduction to NordicWay shown at ITS Lisbon 2023 here
NordicWay will demonstrate the use and feasibility of Day 1 and Day 1,5 Cooperative ITS (C-ITS) services in the challenging Nordic environment.
NordicWay services aim to enhance traffic safety and fluency as well as environmental benefits by reducing CO2 emissions
NordicWay focuses on solutions and services that are suitable for Nordic conditions, e.g. how roads, cellular coverage and traffic problems look like in the Nordic countries
NordicWay aims to scale up existing C-ITS services by supporting cloud to cloud hybrid communication
Services and choice of technical solutions aim at covering the whole Nordic network and have a potential to reach high penetration without further infrastructure investments
NordicWay will contribute to European CCAM (Cooperative, Connected and Automated Mobility) harmonisation through C-ROADS
NordicWay will continue to explore the use of existing mobile communication for C-ITS services. E.g. the feasibility of Day 1 and Day 1,5 services on rural routes with poor cellular connectivity.
The interoperability of several C-ITS services will be tested throughout the NordicWay network
NordicWay will map and assess the infrastructure readiness for connected and automated driving on major freight routes
NordicWay will demonstrate and highlight future services and challenges connected to vehicles with higher automation levels (SAE levels)
