Orchestrating multimodal transport for more efficient and resilient transport services
Technological and organisational innovations pave the way to an integrated transport system that coordinates and synchronises traffic flows along and across all modes – road, rail, water, and air. The EU-funded ORCHESTRA project will bridge the current silos within traffic management by defining a multimodal traffic management ecosystem (MTME) where different traffic management measures are coordinated and synchronised. This will ensure efficiency and resilience of the transport system and leverage integration of connected and automated vehicles and vessels. To facilitate large-scale deployment of a novel MTME, ORCHESTRA will provide a polycentric multimodal architecture (PMA) defining the roles, responsibilities, information models and governance structures required.
