II.1.4)Short description:

In light of the rapid development of UVARs in the EU, an information tool was considered by the European parliament to be a useful instrument for citizens travelling within the EU.

Consequently, the general objective of this preparatory action is to foster the real-time information of road users about urban and regional access schemes.

The specific objective of this tender is to carry out a pilot project focusing on enabling road users, in particular motorists (i.e. both professional and non-professional drivers) to be fully informed about urban and regional access schemes. This includes working on the needed enablers, i.e. standardisation and data provision for the integration of the information in tools such as apps or navigation devices. It includes also the facilitation of the generation of the necessary information to comply with the single digital gateway regulation.

The geographical scope of this pilot shall include at least 4 member states covering around 80 % of existing UV.

As a minimum requirement, the contractor should address the following:

— define a structure for data sets relevant for the definition of UVARs, to be discussed with relevant stakeholders and validated with the commission services,

• define and develop the necessary interfaces (profiles) allowing the exchange of UVAR data in DATEX format, in cooperation with the DATEX II CEF Programme Support Action,

• define a template (Word file), coherent with the defined UVAR data structure, for providing UVAR information complying with the single digital gateway regulation,

• cooperate with the competent authorities of member states in order to ensure the accessibility of UVAR data on national access points,

— cooperate with the Single Digital Gateway (SDG) national coordinators.

Task 2: UVAR data collection and maintenance

The contractor shall collect and maintain during the lifetime of the preparatory action all UVAR data covered bythe geographical scope of the project.

— the contractor will prepare and implement an acceptance procedure for the tools and documentation, involving the Commission and relevant stakeholders,

This task includes as well the specifications (to be validated by the Commission services) and organisation of a Hackathon for developers to use the data collected in Task 2 to develop specific apps providing information on UVAR.

Task 4: Definition of a strategy to ensure the sustainability of data collection and accessibility

— the contractor shall propose a strategy to ensure future sustainability of data collection and accessibility to re-users, including the roles of various stakeholders. This strategy may be different for each country in the scope of the pilot.

Task 5: Support tasks

— involvement of stakeholders in the discussion and validation of the outcome of Tasks 1 and 2 via the organisation of min. 2 workshops,

— involving stakeholders for the data collection phase,

— involvement of stakeholders for the validation of the development of tools and documentation,
