TILEMATT: Testing and Implementing Links in Europe for Multimodal Applications of Transport Telematics), EU, Telematics Applications Programme



Duration: 1996-1997

Scientific Responsible: Prof. Maria Giaoutzi (E-mail: giaoutsi@central.ntua.gr)

The Project Objectives

The idea of TILEMATT is to prepare an integrated project comprising adequate applications that will enhance the mutlimodal short-sea-shipping links. These links, namely: Link 1: Greece – Italy and Link 2: Galais – Dover will connect the Trans-European Networks for Transport (road, rail and maritime) using advanced telematics technologies, such as on-line multimedia for passengers, traveller support systems and freight management systems, setting thus the basis for a Multimodal Trans-European Network for Transport.
The feasibility of implementing telematics-based applications for ensuring the interconnection of waterborne with other transport modes (rail and road) is also addressed on a third link, namely Rostock – Sweden.
