The video shows an example of an implementation of the service, however the service can be implimented and used in different use cases as described below.


Vehicles are increasingly becoming sources for data on driver actions (e.g. steering and braking), vehicle status (e.g. position, motion, flat tyre, windscreen wiper status and air bag status) and environmental conditions (e.g. weather and road conditions).

These data constitute an additional source of information for use in managing traffic flows, for alerting road users on hot spots where the risk of accidents is high and for maintaining the road network.


The objective is to collect data from vehicles for use by road users, road operators and service providers.

Expected benefits

The expected benefit of the service is to provide a more comprehensive and up-to-date picture of the state of the road network and of the traffic situation. This information can be used as a basis for:

  • Improved traffic information to road users (e.g. location-specific warnings and alerts to drivers).
  • Improved traffic flow management
  • Improved road maintenance (e.g. maintenance on-demand).

Use Cases

The use cases for the service include:

  • Single Vehicle Data
