Abstract

Transport is a significant part of smart cities. It accounts for a quarter of greenhouse gas emissions and, through accessibility and appeal, affects regional competitiveness and economic growth. Intelligent Transport Systems and Services (ITS) cover a broad range of tools for improving the efficiency of transport and the mobility choices of citizens. Wider take-up of new ITS technologies and services requires them to first be tested and proven. In this paper, we have a look at ways to enable innovation and faster testing and development cycles through providing suitable test environments. In particular, this paper presents a new innovation and test environment for ITS solutions related to public transport. The innovation environment, built as a public-private-research cooperation, will utilise a fleet of electric buses as a concrete testing platform where technologies and services can be evaluated with real users.
