Unlocking IN2CCAM: Vigo Living Lab

Unlocking IN2CCAM: Vigo Living Lab

3 November 2023

Vigo, a northern Spanish port city, stands out with its unique challenges for optimising traffic management and advancing Connected, Cooperative, and Automated Mobility (CCAM) systems. The city’s industrial port, rugged terrain, and approximately 280 traffic light intersections present distinctive hurdles that require innovative solutions to enhance mobility and elevate residents’ quality of life.

With a significant reliance on private cars and a multitude of traffic light intersections, Vigo has invested substantial resources in Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) to maximize the capacity of its existing roads. Under the IN2CCAM project, Vigo is dedicated to seamlessly integrating Connected, Cooperative, and Automated Mobility (CCAM) systems to enhance the overall mobility experience and the well-being of its residents. The Vigo Living Lab will leverage previous experiences and results in cutting-edge traffic management technologies to foster novel strategies and investments.

As an initial use case, the Vigo Living Lab will foster mutual awareness between CCAM fleets and infrastructure while promoting interaction among CCAM and non-CCAM users within the city. This initiative seeks to connect and share information perceived by various mobility stakeholders, enhancing safety and traffic flow.

Once the success of this first use case is established, the partners involved will proceed to a second use case, focusing on the development of a management strategy based on Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) interaction for complex urban scenarios tailored to CCAM. This strategy aims to ensure safety, efficiency, and a positive environmental impact.
