Innovation and Networks Executive Agency


Traffic Management Systems (TMS) are solutions to apply information and communication technologies to the transport sector. Through TMS, transport can be made safer, cheaper, more reliable and "greener" and can often be done rapidly and with a smaller financial effort compared to other solutions. Some TMS applications are inherently easy to understand and we encounter them in our daily lives. Car satellite navigation systems or booking portals for train services fall under this category. Others, such as ERTMS and SESAR for instance, are less known by the general public, but are nevertheless of paramount importance for transport.

The Agency manages a number of TMS projects, spanning all the major transport sectors (road, rail, air, water) and encourages the deployment of TMS services across all transport sectors, in line with the European Commission's priorities.

The total co-financing for the TMS projects managed by the Agency is over €1 billion for the 2007-2013 funding period.

The Agency groups the main TMS projects according to mode:
Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) - TMS for Road
GALILEO - European global navigation satellite system (GNSS)
European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) - TMS for Rail
SESAR (Single European Sky ATM Research) - TMS for Air
River Information Services (RIS) - TMS for Inland Waterways

Please note that the listing below is not exhaustive. More project information will be added as this website continues to be enhanced.
