PART A - Research Deliverables

D1.1 Multi-actor co-creation strategies for each Case Study

This deliverable aims at defining the multi-actor co-creation process within the TANGENT project which will guide the effective engagement of local stakeholders and ensure coordination of inputs across the project. Such active collaboration among local actors will enable TANGENT to tailor its outputs to the specific challenges and conditions of each Case Study and find practical solutions for effective multi-actor cooperation.

D1.2 NTM Needs Assessment and System Requirements

This document aims at identifying the system requirements for the TANGENT functionalities for each
case study, based on a detailed definition and description of each case study and a comprehensive
consultation and engagement process with local stakeholders. In this way, it reports on the evaluation
of stakeholders’ needs and the analysis of the requirements of the local transport network for the
architecture definition, design, and operation of TANGENT services for advanced traffic and network

D1.3 Multi-Actor Cooperation Models for NTM. First Release

The first release of D1.3 reports on the analysis of multi-actor cooperation models for innovative network traffic management (NTM), considering the system’s architecture and operation, to develop optimal cooperation models and provide recommendations towards effective governance structures for network traffic management in the TANGENT case studies cities.

D1.4 Policy, Regulatory and Planning Framework for TNM. First Release.

The first release of D1.4 provides a preliminary analysis of the planning and regulatory framework in each TANGENT city, as well as at national and EU levels, towards the effective integration of Network Traffic Management solutions and multi-actor cooperation models in local sustainable urban mobility planning processes.

D2.1 Data Requirements and Available Data Sources

The gathering of data sources is a fundamental activity to enable the development and testing of the TANGENT services for multimodal transport network management in the Athens, Lisbon, Manchester, and Rennes case studies. This deliverable provides a list of data requirements for the TANGENT services.

D2.2 Data Sharing Governance Model

D2.2 lays out TANGENT’s data-Sharing Governance model for managing data-sharing in the TANGENT architecture. The model identifies key processes to be addressed with the roles of the different stakeholders involved and the rules to apply.

D3.1 Travel behaviour: state-of-the-art, current and future mobility patterns

This deliverable aims to identify all relevant factors affecting travel decision-making and to set the framework for an inclusive mobility data collection plan. In order to achieve this goal, the international literature consisting of published papers and scientific books is collected and critically analysed based on three major axes:
1. The most relevant approaches to collect data on travellers’ decision-making process.
2. The state-of-the-art approaches to analyse and model travel decisions.
3. The most important factors that may affect the decision-making process of travellers with special emphasis on infrastructure- and system-related factors (e.g., the introduction of new services and the occurrence of network disruptions).

D3.2: Travel choice modelling (set of models, code). First release

This deliverable is pending EC approval.

This deliverable defines the process and methodology to develop travel choice models based on preference data elicited through a structured survey.

To collect data for creating and calibrating travel choice models, a travel behaviour survey was designed to determine how the introduction of new services, the new traffic management strategies or the alteration of strategic goals in a city may affect travellers’ choices. Based on the collected sample, parametric (Multinomial Logit) and machine learning (Random Forest) models have been developed to predict the mode choice in an aggregated way. Overall, this study’s findings aim to provide a basis for forecasting long-term demand shifts and provides valuable insights into travel mode choice which can inform future urban mobility planning efforts.

D4.1 Report on the relevant state-of-the-art approaches for traffic pedictions and simulations

This deliverable explores the state-of-the-art prediction methodologies such as data-driven and simulation-based estimation and prediction approaches, both on supply and demand side. The focus of the report is on deep learning approaches for efficient numerical representations of traffic networks, data availability and granularity, new data sources and graph theory. The analysis is widened with aspects such as transferability and generalizability of the different methods.

The state-of-the-art provides an overview of what has been done in the field of traffic state predictions and simulations and what should be further explored. The results of this exploration will provide the base for the development of the techniques for the remaining tasks of this WP.

D5.1 Analysis of current approaches in optimization of transport network management

This deliverable aims to analyze scientific literature related to current approaches to transport network management optimization within a multi-actor setting. Concretely, we focus our literature review on the three following problems because they play a relevant role in the management: Signal Vehicle Couple Control with CAVs, Synchronization of shared and on-demand mobility with transit modes, and Dynamic Congestion Pricing.

D6.3: Smart infrastructure index report. First release

This deliverable is pending EC approval.

The definition of classifications schemes to evaluate the maturity, readiness or support infrastructures can provide for Connected, Cooperative, and Automated Mobility is essential to inform end-users, assist
operators, aid authorities and policymakers in planning, and manage infrastructure.

This deliverable introduces the relevancy of smart infrastructure classifications based on a literature review, shares best practices and identifies relevant requirements. It showcases TANGENT’s own smart infrastructure classification, the Smart Infrastructure Classification Index (SICI), laying out the TANGENT classification categories, its evaluation criteria, and its integration into the TANGENT’s platform. It presents the evaluation process of each SICI category, by providing a detailed list of evaluation criteria for each of the items in each of the categories. Finally, this deliverable introduces how the consortium will implement SICI in TANGENT’s integrated platform.
