The Danish pilot site is part of the NordicWay pilots running in the Nordic countries Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden. The main objective of this Action is to deploy pilot studies in order to further develop interoperable Day-1 and Day 1,5 C-ITS services and support infrastructure readiness for connected and automated driving in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden. NordicWay pilots will:
- Contribute to the harmonisation and interoperability of the C-ITS services in Europe in line with requirements agreed by the C-Roads Platform.
- Support the deployment of new "Day-1” and “Day-1,5” C-ITS services in Nordic countries and extend its use in vital road freight transport routes subject to extreme weather conditions and in urban and interurban environments.
- Support the infrastructure readiness for connected and automated driving in Nordic countries in snowy and icy arctic conditions.
- Assess the socio-economic impacts of the piloted Day 1 and Day 1,5 C-ITS services as well as the effect on users mobility and traffic behaviours and on public acceptance.
The Danish pilot focuses on connecting the existing TMC and its backbone systems to the common NordicWay architecture, which mean that all larger roads in Denmark are included
