Dynamically Controlled Zones

The service is to distribute traffic policy protocols to road users in real-time which enable dynamically controlled zones and vehicles to adjust characteristics accordingly.

Demo 191017 OSLO #Geofence #ZeroEmissionZone NPRA VCC

Demo of Zero Emission Geofence for plug-in hybrid Volvo, demonstrated in Oslo. Geofence is produced from the Norwegian Public Roads Administrations National Road Database.

Background

Many European cities implement regulated zones in urban areas, e.g. environmental zones,restrictions on physical parameters such as length and weight and usage characteristics (public transport, private car etc.).

The regulations in these zones and the zones themselves may sometimes need real-time adjustment due to current traffic or weather conditions or due to events affecting desired vehicle characteristics in defined zones.

Objective

The objective of the service is to enable road authorities to adjust geo- and policy data in real-time and distribute data to service-subscribing vehicles which can adjust characteristics according to current zones and policy.
