Decision-support for Investing in Cooperative Systems – Results of the Project COBRA

The COoperative Benefits for Road Authorities study (COBRA), financed by the ERA-NET ROAD Mobility Program, investigated costs and benefits of deploying bundles of cooperative systems by Road Authorities, as well as business models for Road Authorities. The project focused on the deployment of three bundles of functions, assessing the benefits in terms of safety, traffic efficiency and environmental impact, as well their costs of deployment. The project considered two technology platforms for deployment of the bundles of cooperative systems: cellular and wireless beacons, as well as non-financial aspects such as legal aspects, organizational complexity and the role of the Road Authority. This paper presents a suggested Migration path for Road Authorities for one bundle due to length limitations, and draws conclusions based on the analyses.
