NordicWay 2 is a C-ITS pilot project that enables vehicles, infrastructure and network operators to communicate safety hazards and other information from roads in the Nordic countries between different stakeholders.
The project is a collaboration between public and private partners in Finland, Norway, Sweden and Denmark and builds on the achievements from the previous NordicWay project. Agreement on the continuation, NordicWay 3 - Urban Connection, has been signed by the partners and the EU in Eindhoven in June 2019.
NordicWay2 will demonstrate the use and feasibility of
Day 1 and Day 1,5 C-ITS services in the challenging Nordic environment.
NordicWay2 services aim to enhance traffic safety and fluency as well as environmental benefits by reducing CO2 emissions
NordicWay2 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
NordicWay2 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
NordicWay2 will contribute to European CCAM (Cooperative, Connected and Automated Mobility) harmonisation through C-ROADS
NordicWay2 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 NordicWay2 network
NordicWay2 will map and assess the infrastructure readiness for connected and automated driving on major freight routes
NordicWay2 will demonstrate and highlight future services and challenges connected to vehicles with higher automation levels (SAE levels)
During the ITS world Congress 2018 NordicWay 2 demonstrated how data exchanged through the NordicWay Interchange system can be utilized in relation to geofence technology and communication between weichels and traffic lights.
