NordicWay is a pilot project that seeks to enable vehicles to communicate safety hazards through cellular networks on a road corridor through Finland, Norway, Sweden and Denmark.
The project is a collaboration between public and private partners in the four countries, and is co-financed by the European Union within the Connecting Europe Facility programme 2015-2017.
During the project, cars will utilize cellular networks to share specific and low latency traffic safety information regarding e.g. obstacles on the road, weather conditions, slippery surfaces and accidents. Voluntary drivers of up to 2000 vehicles will connect and share information with other vehicles on the road and the surrounding infrastructure in a C-ITS network.
The project goal is to pilot and facilitate specific C-ITS functionalities through a common architecture. The end goal of the project is to lay the foundation for automated cloud communication via cellular networks with data generated by vehicle on-board sensors and the surrounding infrastructure. Communication will be established between vehicles, smart devices on the road, service providers, road administrators as well as other public administrations. A business model and a detailed scenario for the roll-out of cellular based C-ITS services will also be developed.
