The NEXT-ITS 3 project (2018-2021) was a continuation of the NEXT-ITS 1 and 2 projects and the long-term VIKING cooperation on the deployment of harmonised ITS in the Nordic countries and Northern Germany. The VIKING cooperation has enabled northern European countries to carry out large ITS projects efficiently and to ensure exchange of knowledge. The VIKING community has promoted cooperation in solving common transport related problems and issues faced by partner countries since the mid 1990’s.
The NEXT-ITS projects covered the Northern part of the Scandinavian-Mediterranean corridor, including the TEN-T core road network and the key comprehensive network links. NEXT-ITS activities have contributed to achieving a European integrated road transport system building on the TEN-T core network.
The aim of the NEXT-ITS projects has been to enhance corridor and network safety and performance by full-scale deployment of ITS services that ensure interoperability and continuity of services, support harmonisation, and increase the cost-efficiency in the operation of traffic management.
The ITS Services in NEXT-ITS were the following:
Traffic Management Centres have played a key role in the service provision, regardless of service.
