The project ICT4CART, co-financed by the European Commission within the framework of the Horizon2020 programme, is providing an ICT infrastructure to enable the transition towards road transport automation. To meet this high level objective ICT4CART is bringing together, adapting and improving technological advances from different industries, mainly telecom, automotive and IT. It adopts a hybrid communication approach where all the major wireless technologies, i.e. cellular, ITS G5 and LTE-V, are integrated under a flexible “sliced” network architecture.

This architecture ensures performance and resilience for different groups of applications according to the needs of higher levels of automation (L3 & L4). On top of that, a distributed IT environment for data aggregation and analytics is implemented. This offers seamless integration and exchange of data and services between all the different actors, allowing 3rd parties to develop, deliver and provide innovative services, thus creating new business opportunities. Cyber-security and data privacy aspects are duly considered throughout the whole ICT infrastructure. In addition, novel accurate localisation services, exploiting the cellular network and information from other sources, such as on-board sensors, especially in complex areas (e.g. urban), are being addressed.

Standardization and interoperability are of high interest within ICT4CART in order to ensure the impact of the project towards enabling the transition to higher levels of automation. In this context issues related to the frequency spectrum are investigated, while through the organisation of relevant workshops the engagement of policy makers and public authorities is ensured. To achieve its objectives ICT4CART, instead of working in generic solutions with questionable impact, it builds on four specific high-value use cases (urban and highway) which are demonstrated and validated under real-life conditions at the test sites in Austria, Germany, Italy and across the Italian- Austria border.

The four selected use cases are:
a) parking & IoT services,
b) in-vehicle enhanced HD maps,
c) intersection crossing & lane merging
d) cross-border interoperability.


In the framework of the research project ICT4CART (ICT Infrastructure for Connected and Automated Road Transport), granted and financed by the Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme of the European Union (https://cordis.europa.eu/project/id/768953), Fondazione LINKS, as data controller, and Autostrada del Brennero Spa, as manager of the section of motorway subject to the activities of the above-mentioned research project, as well as partner in the project and concessionaire of the authorisations, hereby INFORM the interested parties that from 01/10/2021 the section of motorway affected by the presence of the Nogaredo Est service area and the Trento Centro exit junction will be interested by scientific research activities using a real-time image acquisition and processing system without registration in the field of road transport automation.
