Work on the LOD-RoadTran18 project gets momentum

Our team together with CTU Faculty of Transportation Sciences is working on the European project 1 LOD-RoadTran18, which aims to encourage the re-use of road traffic data in Czechia and Spain to make this data accessible, interoperable and reusable through the European Data Portal using linked open data.

Open traffic data from Czechia and Spain will be distributed using a semantic model that avoids interoperability problems. Semantic capability-based traffic information inquiries give access, for example, to systems that can take into account weather information at the time of the accident. There are currently several open sources of traffic data, but they are not linked open data or do not reach international level. The resulting LOD-RoadTran18 system will support the reusability of traffic data through the European Data Portal, allowing access to this information from other sectors at international level.

LOD-RoadTran18 helps to create interoperable and interconnected digital services to support the digital single market. The project is consistent with the European Commission's strategy to encourage the reusability and availability of information.

In Czechia, Department of Transport Telematics, Faculty of Transportation Sciences of the Czech Technical University in Prague and TamTam Research and in Spain IRTIC Institute of Robotics and Informatics, University of Valencia, Desidedatum Data Company S.L., RBSolutions, Esam Tecnología, Universitat Politècnica de Valencia, and Leading Management Technology cooperate on the project.


The project is co-funded by the European Commission through the Connecting Europe Facility Telecom (CEF-Telecom) program, which supports the facilitation of international interaction between public administrations, companies and citizens and the development of Digital Infrastructure Services (DSIs).
