ITS Factory -- Proving and Innovation Arena for ITS Solutions

The ITS Factory, also known as Tampere Region ITS Proving and Innovation Arena, is a joint initiative of City of Tampere, regional and national transport authorities, companies, service providers as well as research institutions. The target is to provide a highly sophisticated proving, testing and demonstration environment for ITS innovation and demonstration projects. ITS Factory heads on to establish leading facilities and infrastructure for all ITS service chain stakeholders with minimum ‘red tape’ and administrative bureaucracy. ITS Factory is maintained by City of Tampere who runs the administrations and fiscal transactions. National and European Projects are welcome to bring their ITS-related (‘cooperative transport’) research, development and innovation (RDI) activities to Tampere Region. ITS Factory provides efficient management and flexible organization for the projects with support to access ITS infrastructure and real traffic network. ITS activities are expected to address user, service, technical, environmental, commercial and/or socio-economic aspects. Thus ITS Factory is considered to provide innovative economical, societal and environmental solutions for urban and extra-urban road transport networks.
