The SISCOGA Smart Corridor, managed by CTAG, integrates more than 100km on interurban roads in collaboration with the DGT and urban sections in collaboration with the City of Vigo. The objective of this permanent corridor, pioneering in Europe, is to conduct operational tests on car-to-car and car-to-infrastructure communication systems.
This corridor is used in research projects, Field Operational Tests, pilot projects, and cooperative systems development and set-up projects with automotive companies.
This corridor is currently part of two European pilot projects supporting the market deployment strategy of this type of technologies:
- Compass4D, which aims to improve safety and energy efficiency for sustainable mobility in urban environments, especially in intersections http://www.compass4d.eu/
- CO-GISTICS, which analyses how to improve truck logistics in cities in terms of energy efficiency using cooperative systems. (Help at intersections, recommendations to reduce CO2 emissions and facilitate truck parking) (http://cogistics.eu/)
