Innovation and Networks Executive Agency

TIMON

INEA ceased operations on 31 March 2021. The European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA) was established on 1 April 2021 to take over its legacy portfolio as well as additional EU funding programmes.
Enhanced real time services for an optimized multimodal mobility relying on cooperative networks and open data

The TIMON project is developing a cooperative open web-based platform and mobile application, which form a framework of services, in order to deliver real-time information and services to all users of the transport ecosystem – drivers, vulnerable road users, and businesses.

The project connects all the road agents, people, vehicles, infrastructure and businesses, into a single cooperative ecosystem. It is gathering data from all these agents and connecting them with cooperative networks and open data. TIMON will also implement different real-time services, leading to increased safety, sustainability, flexibility and efficiency of road transport systems.

Information from relevant open data sources, infrastructure sensors and TIMON users is stored and harmonised. Using innovative application of existing and emerging technologies in cooperative vehicular networks, artificial intelligence and cooperative positioning, all this data is processed and enhanced. Finally, new knowledge is generated to provide real time services through a mobile app or a website.

The project has also planned two practical testing pilots in real environment:
• Validating the system's technical performance in a testbed site in Helmond (the Netherlands)
• Testing the TIMON services with real end-users in Ljubljana (Slovenia)

TIMON plans to decrease the number of crashes by 15-20%, reduce congestion by 12-20%, and decrease GHG emissions by 6-10%.
