The iMobility Forum succeeds the eSafety Forum. Its field of work includes ICT systems for resource-efficient and clean mobility in addition to the latter's focus on ICT-based safety technologies. The iMobility Forum is a joint platform open for all road stakeholders interested in ICT-based systems and services.
Since its establishment in 2003, the iMobility Forum has successfully advanced on the implementation of 22 Recommendations. There is now a need to move increasingly towards deployment.
Energy efficiency and environmental performance are increasingly important policy goals. ITS services can make contributions to achieve these policy goals.
ITS services have developed to be ready for deployment. In this context of the revised White paper on transport, the EU Commission has implemented an ITS Action plan and is proposing a European ITS Committee and ITS Advisory Group.
The effectiveness of the Forum can be further strengthened by improving rules and roles.
…From Vision to Actions
Safe, smart and clean mobility with zero accidents, zero delays, no negative impact on the environment and connected and informed citizens, where products & services are affordable and seamless, privacy is respected and security is provided.
To work towards this vision, the Forum provides a platform for all ITS stakeholders in Europe to discuss, define, coordinate and support activities to further innovation, research, development, deployment and use of ICT based transport systems and services.
The new Forum objectives cover the period from 2010 to 2020. In the time period 2011-2020, the iMobility Forum estimates for ITS the following potential contributions:
