Identification, development of specifications and the pressessment of illustrative case studies to be potentially conducted
The second work package is devoted to the identification and development of specifications and the pre-assessment of illustrative case studies to be potentially conducted. Selected case studies should fulfil a number of criteria:
- Represent real complex problems that are likely to benefit from the application of innovative research techniques (e.g. those identified in WP 1).
- Be representative for similar problems and approaches appearing in several traffic networks around Europe.
- Involve new research challenges.
This WP 2 is subdivided into a number of tasks so as to carefully address various geographic or functional aspects of emerging traffic and transportation problems.
Again, the role of associate partners is fundamental in this WP, in constituting working groups on possible applications: local Authorities may provide implementation sites, manufacturers could be involved in development etc.
