JRC AUTOTRAC 2020 - How the future road transport will look like?
JRC AUTOTRAC 2020 is the first autonomous vehicle traffic competition. Differently from other competitions involving small-scale automated vehicles (AVs), AUTOTRAC is about vehicles’ cooperation behavior rather than their individual capacity to complete a certain path.
The final event of the competition was held in the form of an online event on 17 June 2021 as part of the 7th International IEEE Conference on Models and Technologies for Intelligent Transportation Systems.
Towards a Connected, Coordinated and Automated Road Transport (C2ART) system
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is investigating the impacts of CAV technologies through a combined approach based on traffic modelling and simulation, desk research and stakeholders’ consultation.
JRC Proof of Concept Project Ridechain
The project investigated the applicability and market potential of blockchain technology for asset sharing in the road transport sector. The project comprised two principal activities. The first activity was market research and analysis to support the development of a new service concept and business model for blockchain-powered shared mobility. The second activity was technology prototyping to demonstrate the technical feasibility of the novel service concept using state of the art blockchain and IoT frameworks.
JRC Container Traffic Monitoring System - ConTraffic
Application of Information-based risk analysis using container movement data to control containerized cargo, target high-risk consignments and proceed with costly physical checks, only where needed.
