Abstract

Safe, fluent and easily accessible mobility services are objectives that are not yet met anywhere in industrialised countries. Industries, research institutes and public service providers are currently working in a great number of joint research projects around the world aiming at alleviating mobility problems and producing added value for traffic services. New technology areas that are being developed and gradually implemented range from active vehicle safety systems to traffic management and services directed towards bringing added value to the mobility of travellers. eTampere will also host a number of experiments aimed at improving mobility services using wireless automation technology in urban areas. This paper presents and assesses some scenarios for potential solutions that could improve the level of traffic services and bring added value to the mobility of residents and visitors in urban areas. These scenarios include the following services: 1) Emerging smart tyre technology that can be used to improve safety services in urban areas; 2) Intelligent Speed Adaptation (ISA), which is taking its first steps currently; 3) For those arriving in the city area, wireless location-based information services, giving information on the location of both model-specific and general repair and maintenance services; 4) A centralised parking management system that will inform drivers of free parking space according to the location of the vehicle prior to entering the city area.
