Engineering services consulting firm WSP has announced that it’s celebrated a key milestone on its connected vehicle trial project.
WSP’s latest on-road testing of the A2M2 Connected Corridor project between London and Dover, part of the UK’s Connected and Autonomous Vehicles Programme has finished.
Led by Department for Transport and its UK partners Highways England, Transport for London and Kent County Council, TestFest has tested cross-border interoperability of Cooperative Intelligent Transport Services (C-ITS), with the support of WSP.
The TestFest event is part of InterCor, a wider European project connecting C-ITS corridors in the Netherlands, Belgium, France and the UK.
The event took place on the 18th of March and finished on the 28th. Located across the 4 European countries, starting in the UK, the event tested the interoperability of each member state’s C-ITS solution and aimed for a seamless journey through each Testbed.
The A2M2 Connected Corridor is being delivered with the objective of advancing C-ITS standards for the industry and is a UK flagship CAV pilot project in the transport industry.
Covering urban, interurban and rural roads between London and Dover, the connected corridor pilot provides connections between vehicles and traffic control systems which allows vehicles to receive information from roadside infrastructure and traffic management systems.
