The project will progress the PoC Demonstrator developed in NIA_NGN_223 and release it into 1Spatial’s Functional Test Environment at TRL8 (with some capabilities up to TRL6). As such, the project will have progressed phase 1 PoC functionality to be in the form of an actual application/system that has been completed, functionally tested, and is “commercially ready” for the networks to deploy
The project will progress the PoC Demonstrator developed in NIA_NGN_223 and release it into 1Spatial’s Functional Test Environment at TRL8 (with some capabilities up to TRL6). As such, the project will have progressed phase 1 PoC functionality to be in the form of an actual application/system that has been completed, functionally tested, and is “commercially ready” for the networks to deploy

The following “scenarios” are the TM scenarios that have already been identified as priority by NGN and key stakeholders through earlier design sprint sessions. These are deemed to unlock the greatest potential value from the Poc demonstrator, so are to be considered for this project:

  •  Basic layout with a works vehicle
  • Works entirely on the footway
  •  Works on footway with pedestrian diversion into carriageway
  • Dual carriageway with a speed limit of 40 mph, works in right lane
  • Dual carriageway with a speed limit of 40 mph, works in left lane
  •  Works in a side road at a T-junction
  •  Traffic control by ‘give and take’ for roads with a speed limit of 30 mph or less
  • Traffic control by portable traffic signals
  •  Traffic Control - Unobstructed widths             

The project will also produce an application that is complete with respect to the scope described in this proposal at up to TRL6 that can demonstrate feasibility and additional prototype capabilities as defined in the project scope.
