ITS Based on EGNOS2 for Enhancing the Safety of Dangerous Goods Transport

Intelligent Transport System (ITS) offer solutions and services to improve the safety and effectiveness in the transport and logistics sectors. Particularly for the transport of dangerous goods, ITS contribute to increased road safety by means of tracking and tracing systems and telematics that enable the continuous monitoring and real-time information for consignors, transport operators, emergency responders, enforcement and control authorities and regulators. In the frame of the European project SCUTUM, eni, a leading oil company, decided to adopt European Geostationary Overlay Service (EGNOS) to track and trace its operating fleet transporting dangerous goods in Europe so as to benefit from guaranteed and more accurate positioning than with global positioning system (GPS) alone. SCUTUM has also produced a CEN6 Workshop Agreement7, defining the technical specification for the implementation of commercial services based on EGNOS, and enabling a wider implementation and exploitation of EGNOS in transport and mobility applications. This paper is aimed at presenting SCUTUM’s main results and the key concepts of the CEN Workshop Agreement SCUTUM.
