Joint FOT-Net – ADASIS – TN-ITS Stakeholder workshop

(FOT-Net 9th Stakeholders Workshop)

Speed Alert: from research to deployment

Dublin, 4 June 2013, 9:30 – 15:30

The Convention Centre Dublin – Liffey Meeting room 3
Spencer Dock, North Wall Quay, Dublin 1, Ireland


This workshop is organised in collaboration between the FOT-Net, ADASIS and TN-ITS.

The focus of the workshop is on Speed Alert Systems, also called Intelligent Speed Assistant (ISA).

Over more than 10 years, many FOTs have been investigated the benefits of these systems. Now the industry is entering the full-scale deployment phase. Indeed, the systems are now fully integrated in the EuroNCAP assessment program, which means that it will get harder for vehicle manufacturers to receive five stars if the vehicle is not equipped with a Speed Alert system.

Today, speed limit information stored in the navigation map databases is not used by any other systems in the vehicle. ADASIS has deinfed an information exchange interface to allow Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) to use map data such as legal speed limit, vehicle position and speed. The ADASIS Forum celebrated its tenth year anniversary in 2012 corresponding also to the launch of the first products based on ADASIS specifications from Scania (Active Prediction) and Daimler (Predictive Power Train Control). These new systems for trucks achieve about 3-5% reduction in fuel consumption. Speed profiles are key data provided by the ADASIS interface to the ADAS application enabling speed related applications.

During the workshop, we will look at the ways in which these systems were tested, the outcomes of a variety of FOTs, the ways in which stakeholders deploy the outcomes and the impact large-scale deployment will have on safety, mobility and the environment in Europe. Also, the current actions to improve digital map content will be presented.

About FOT-Net: FOT-Net is a support action funded by the European Commission to network Field Operational Tests (FOTs) activities at national, European, and international level, and to promote the the FESTA methodology. FOT-Net is the point of reference for anyone interested in FOTs, their set up and their results. FOT-Net is open to all stakeholders from public and private sectors willing to exchange experience and benefit from each others’ learning processes.

About ADASIS:The ADASIS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems Interface Specification) Forum was launched by ERTICO in order to address the interface specifications necessary for the information exchange of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS).

About TN-ITS:The Transport Network ITS Spatial Data (TN-ITS) Deployment Platform is a new forum to facilitate the provision and exchange of ITS spatial data between public authorities and third parties throughout Europe. TN-ITS is directly linked to the Action 1.3 of the ITS Action Plan on “Accurate Public Data for Digital Maps”. In particular, it is expected to contribute to the seamless distribution of up-to-date legal speed limit updates. The first TN-ITS General Assembly will take place on the 5 June 2013.
