Department of International Research Projects - ERAdiate+

ERAdiate+ has been set up as a follow up of succesfully finished FP7 pilot ERA Chair project ERAdiate.

Research fields

ERAdiate fosters excellence in the following fields:

Cooperative ITS

C-ITS (co-operative ITS) is picking up speed. The U.S. Department of Transportation as well as the European Commission are about to create legal frameworks that pave the way to co-operated driving or even autonomous driving. The industry is investing into R&I more than ever in this field. Yet, key techniques are still unsolved.

Decarbonisation of Mobility

The greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation achievements in industry, private dwelling and agriculture are almost eaten up by mobility with its increasing demand for fossil fuel. Decarbonising transport thus becomes a key issue that is expressed in manifold action plans and road maps.

Sustainable Urban Mobility / Smart City

ITS is increasingly tackling urban mobility issues, covering all modes of transport. The traditional mode-centric approach fails in urban mobility while new aspects such as customer care, user needs and door-to-door are becoming crucial.

Intermodal ITS

Intermodal mobility is increasingly understood as the sheer provision of seamless mobility options. Scientific work is yet to be carried out in order to create services that are in a position to change mobility behaviour towards a high quality, less consuming issue.

Cross-cutting topics

Mobility Indicators, Autonomous Driving, MaaS, Travel Behaviour
