The Italian ITS Association, TTS Italia, has released the first newsletter for the European COMPASS (optimised CO-Modal PASSenger transport for reducing carbon emissions) project, which it is now involved in as a consortium partner. The newsletter is shared jointly with another European project, OPTIMISM (Optimising Passenger Transport Information to Materialize Insights for Sustainable Mobility), and reveals the first results and deliverables achieved by both projects and offers more details on their future objectives. Both projects are funded by the European Commission’s 7th Framework Programme and are coordinated by UK academic institutions; COMPASS by the Transport Research Institute at Edinburgh Napier University; and OPTIMISM by Coventry University Enterprises.
The rationale behind the joint newsletter between COMPASS and OPTIMIS is based on the fact that the two projects show great affinities with each other, as well as sharing common objectives. Both projects propose a set of strategies, recommendations and policy measures, through the scientific analysis of social behavior, mobility patterns and business models, for integrating and optimizing the transport system. This will be based on the modeling and the assessment of the impact of co-modality and ICT (Information and Communication Technology) systems for transport. There is a cluster among some activities of the two projects and some results obtained in OPTMISM will be used in COMPASS, so it was decided to try and share knowledge on common issues.
