CAD Working Group Meeting, Tallin

6th-7th March, 2019, Tallinn, Estonia


The DIRIZON project was represented at the Tallinn workshop by TNO, the purpose of which was to align and launch the project work packages on data needs, stakeholder relationships and views, digital platform and business models, and ensure alignment on use cases. Approximately 30 CAD/CEDR members took part in the workshop which focused on;

  • identifying the different roles to be filled in the use cases

  • Assigning the actors/organisations to the different roles, from different  delivery perspectives (Public/Road Operator only, Road Operator-private cooperation, market-driven)

  • Collecting input on data and data sources relevant to the different use cases (incl. the data providers for each data category)

  • Collecting views on the preconditions/prerequisites on data exchange

  • Identifying opportunities and risks with respect to security/data protection, privacy, architecture and governance

  • Developing perspectives on what aspects the NRAs can cooperate in realizing the use cases in Europe


CAD Working Group Meeting,  Oslo

6th, 7th, November 2018, Norwegian Public Roads Administration, Oslo, Norway

At an early stage in the project, a set of Use Cases relevant to Digitilisation and Automated Driving were proposed  which would form the basis on which the Roadmap for identifying key areas of operation of NRAs in respect of Automated Driving and Digitalisation would be formulated. To ensure the relevance and validity of the selected Use Cases, the proposed use cases were presented by DIRIZON partners TNO and ROD to members of the PEB and CAD working Group at this CAD working group workshop. Based on the input received, the Use Cases were refined and described in more detail for use in subsequent activities.
