DRIVE II: ATT IN TRANSPORT MANAGEMENT IN EUROPE

The recently completed transport telematics research and development program, DRIVE II, was coordinated under seven areas (themes). This paper describes the final outputs of three linked areas relating to demand management, urban traffic management, and public transport management and information. A key common understanding of the three areas is that telematics alone will not solve urban transport problems. However, telematics systems and services will enable policy objectives to be met more efficiently and effectively, using techniques that were previously unavailable. Thus, the policy context has been a key to the development of telematics and its demonstration, and policies at European, national, and local demonstrator site levels have had a crucial influence on the activities of the work areas. The policy influence may be considered to be a first level of user requirements. Other common actions have been the development of technical products to demonstration levels, which increases the operating efficiency of road networks and public transport systems, encourages the transfer of travelers to modes other than cars, supports enforcement for safety, and enhances the efficiency of policy application. Interoperability of services and systems has also been a core activity, with consensus building and support for the standardization processes. Consistent evaluation of technical performance and of the ways in which the products meet all levels of user requirements have also been undertaken and the results are presented.
