CEDR Call 2018 — Noise and Nuisance and BIM
This Call for Proposals entitled CEDR Transnational Road Research Programme Call 2018 is launched by Danish Road Directoratet on behalf of the Conference of European Directors of Roads (CEDR).
The research and development services of this call are exempted fra the scope of the Danish Public Procurement Act, cf. section 22 of the Act (art. 14 of Directive 2014/24).
The purpose of this Prior Information Notice is to secure transparency to Call 2018 in the EU.
Therefore the tender material will not be publish in connection with a Contract Notice, cf. II.3). Consortia interested in submitting bids can find the tender material on the CEDR website: http://www.cedr.eu/cedr-research-call-2018/ and on the following link: http://www.vejdirektoratet.dk/EN/roadsector/supplierportal/Pages/ongoingtenders.aspx from 14.12.2018.
Noise and Nuisanse
The aim of this research programme is to identify, consider and gain a greater understanding of existing and newer methods to reduce noise exposure and noise nuisance for people living near national roads, and to identify methods that could improve the way noise is perceived by these people. This research programme will examine the following three sub-themes:
(i) quieter tyres, tyre labelling system and pavements;
(ii) optimization and securing the performance of noise barriers; and
(iii) psycho-acoustics: improved understanding of people’s subjective reactions to road noise.
As a result of the CEDR Call 2015 a framework for a European road OTL is available. It provides a framework how to set up a consistent and modular approach for linking data based on modern, proven IT techniques which can be implemented step by step according to the requirements and wishes of an individual CEDR member. The framework is also of use for national or organizational aims regarding connecting data from various sources for a more efficient dataflow. The CEDR Call 2018 builds on this result and aims for a wider implementation among individual CEDR members with practical results in different use cases. It also explores new territories which are of interest of CEDR members such as scanning and sensor techniques.
Generally speaking there are two main topics of interest of CEDR:
1) information management over the life cycle;
2) extensibility to legacy assets.
