SYNCRO, an Innovative Public Procurement of an Advanced Data Gathering System for Interurban Roads Based on ITS Technologies

SYNCRO project emerges as an original public procurement of an interurban road data gathering and processing system by two cross border road operators. The issue is to improve the information of the road users and the dynamic traffic management. The objective is to investigate the advanced technologies offer to test then to deploy an innovative intelligent transportation system (ITS) solution. The SYNCRO system is expected to collect traffic count data, travel times and possibly any other relevant data (as weather road data for instance). The technological innovation is expected to enable a massive deployment of the SYNCRO system across an interurban road network and to prepare the emergence of cooperative intelligent transport systems, in particular vehicle-infrastructure communication. A legal framework was elaborated to support this cross border public procurement of innovation. A market notice was published on 6th December 2013 in order to select 3 candidates for a competitive dialogue. Finally one tenderer will be awarded to supply a pilot system then possibly an operational system for roll up on the road network.
