Main topics at this event were multimodal traffic and data exchange. All parties emphasised the importance of border-crossing cooperation for a successful deployment of Intelligent Transport Systems. Companies and institutions from both countries, Austria and the Czech Republic, benefited from the first Austrian-Czech ITS Forum and took the opportunity to network internationally.
Another focus topics of this event was the EU project Easy-OBU (www.easy-obu.eu). The aim of Easy-OBU is the development of a robust, satellite-based positioning system, whereby it is possible to adjust reception problems (e.g. caused by shadings or tunnels) post hoc. This enables a gapless capture of the driven route. In the upcoming project year Easy-OBU will enter the test phase and in October 2013 a demonstration is planned in Halle (Germany).
