TEAM - IP project

TEAM vision

TEAM stands for Tomorrow’s Elastic Adaptive Mobility. It turns static into elastic mobility by joining drivers, travellers and infrastructure operators together into one collaborative network. Thereby TEAM explicitly takes into account the needs and constraints of all participants and the network itself.

The vision is to use mobile devices such as smartphones to significantly improve transportation safety and efficiency, implementing environmental aspects. This includes contribution towards the objective of reducing fatalities in the EU, not only addressing drivers but all road users – including passengers and pedestrians. In this way, drivers, travellers and infrastructure are meant to act as a team, adapting to each other and to the situation, creating optimised mobility conditions.

The success of the project will be demonstrated and validated via innovative applications for end-users and a Europe-wide mobility experiment to illustrate the systems’ benefits in a pan-European setting.

The project duration is four years. It has started in November 2012 as a joint initiative of 27 partners (now: 28), ranging from car manufacturers to telecommunication providers, research institutes, road infrastructure operators, traffic managers and more.
