In this paper we demonstrate the potential of using anonymized cellular network signaling data to extract and analyse macro-mobility patterns. We show that, by properly processing signaling data passively collected from a cellular core network, our approach is able to catch crucial characteristics of wide-area mobility patterns. By means of simple illustrative examples, we present an analysis of country-wide travel relations, the dynamics of travel times between cities, and commute behaviour.

How can targeting co-operative I2V services to the so called climate-conscious urban mobility avant-garde contribute to broadening the co-operative systems user base? Service idea is to support drivers in their practice of greener decision making in those cases where they feel they need to ride a car. By driving individualization of cooperative services to the extreme, current feasibility limits for road operators and TCCs are sounded-out. At the same time the enhanced deployment potential is unveiled when piggy-packing context-specific service ideas onto mainstream cooperative services. Ultimately all convenience and service quality ambition comes down to a kind of co-operative services-enabled climate alarm-clock. The idea is to reduce mobility-related distress peak levels-typically from traffic jams and from challenging weather conditions. The service bundle also includes real-time co-modal routing recommendations on more efficient start times for specific journeys as well as alternative routing. This all may soon become available on Smartphone apps optimized for car drivers in urban traffic contexts. Reducing distress fosters feedback-enhanced learning and helps to better cope with severe weather situations. More generally speaking we investigate how the I2V co-operative services concept can be used for communication to pioneering climate-conscious citizens and therefore better prepare the next generation-opinion leaders.

Austria and Switzerland successfully implemented the first technical interoperability between 2 countries in 2004. Following this, a second interoperable service was launched on 1st of September 2011. This new service between Austria and Germany named TOLL2GO is the first toll collection service that is based on both microwave and satellite technology. With this unique service in Europe it was proven that a GPS-based tolling system can be connected to a DSRC system. TOLL2GO gives drivers of heavy good vehicles with 12 tons or more the possibility to only use one OBU (Toll Collect OBU) for paying tolls in both countries. Hereby it is important to mention, that besides one OBU for use in both countries, it is necessary for the customer to have 2 contracts (one with the German toll operator and one with the Austrian one). With this so called 2-contract (technical) interoperability, the invoicing remains completely separate. Currently ASFINAG is working on the next step, namely the implementation of a one-contract (contractual) interoperability solution for heavy goods vehicles together with the Scandinavian Consortium EasyGo. This presentation gives a brief overview about the challenges during these interoperability projects and the lessons learned especially with regard to introducing EETS (European Electronic Toll Service).

The construction of autobahns and dual-carriageway roads is only possible with considerable use of resources and visible encroachment in the environment and landscape. The ASFINAG is aware of their responsibility for this, so modern and resource-saving construction materials and methods are being used for the new building of federal roads. This also includes the intention to balance masses on the overall project and the best quality management of tunnel spoil. A good collaboration of technical design and environmental design with clarification of the potential for material recycling and the necessary approvals are preconditions for sustainable materials management. Nevertheless, the implementation of major projects like the S 10 Mühlviertler Schnellstraße (S 10) is faced with challenging conditions, which complicate efficient and sustainable handling of materials. © 2014 Ernst & Sohn Verlag für Architektur und technische Wissenschaften GmbH & Co.

This paper presents results of a stakeholder analysis which was performed by the EasyWay Cooperative Systems Task Force. The study focuses on the road operator which is one of the stakeholder groups relevant for the deployment and operation of cooperative systems. The road operator will not only be affected by the impacts of cooperative systems but may also play an active part in the operation of cooperative services. Optional function schemes of selected cooperative services are described and related potential roles of the road operator in the operation process of these services are identified. Results of a deepened analysis of the developed function schemes and role profiles are shown which give insight in expectations and aspirations towards cooperative services from a road operator's view.
