ITS-solutions for safe tunnels

Viktoria Swedish ICT is participating in a joint research project to build knowledge about safety in road tunnels. The project is initiated by Trafikverket and is co-financed by Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) as a part of the “Förbifart Stockholm” project, which is developing a new bypass route, including one of the longest tunnels in the world. The goal of the project is to find ITS-solutions in three scenarios: 1) Detecting non-moving vehicles, 2) Detecting dangerous goods, and 3) Communicating evacuation information in emergency situations.

The project will review state-of-the-art solutions and conduct in-depth interviews and workshops with the stakeholders in order to identify future trends and possible ITS-solutions applicable in Förbifart Stockholm. The project is divided into three sub-projects. The work will continue until September 2014.
