Today’s planning of tomorrow’s mobility focuses on automated and connected driving. Four questions are of special importance for Austria:
The project DigiTrans has the goal to create a test region for automated and connected driving. The test region will be located in the upper center of Austria, in the triangle Wels – Linz – Steyr and address the requirements from industry and manufacturing in a sustainable and effective user-centered fashion.
Following initial project cases of application have already been identified upfront:
On the basis of these cases of applications, DigiTrans optimizes mobility of goods by:

A 2004 conducted US-study showed that 1.5 million traffic accidents occur due to weather conditions. This resulted in 690,000 injured people and 7,400 deaths. It is hoped that the number of accidents can be reduced by up to 90% until 2030 by using connected weather monitoring systems with a promt information transfer.
With this project we now want to adapt and refine the successful weather forecasting model of ZAMG in Austria and the surrounding border regions. Therefore, the measurement data of millions of vehicles should be feed into model calculations.
Catalysts as a ICM software partner will process the data of millions of vehicles and provide the data for ZAMG who then will make route exact weather forecast data available for drivers every 15 minutes. ...Read more
