OPTICITIES is a three-years innovation project implemented between 2013 and 2016. It gathered European cities, companies and research institutes to develop and experiment innovative Intelligent Transport System (ITS) solutions to foster efficient and sustainable urban mobility.

OPTICITIES addressed the whole information value chain on mobility: from data collection to processing up to services’ delivery towards final users including network operators, citizens and freight operators. One of the project’s singularities was based on the cooperation of operators and innovators looking jointly forward to scale up solutions aimed at being implemented and commercialised in a three years horizon.

OPTICITIES results are impressive! They include operational tools and solutions, some of them already supporting network exploitation, providing concrete answers to urban mobility stakes.

They also include prospective developments designed to address tomorrow’s challenges in terms of urban mobility at European scale. All approaches have been conducted including the idea of challenging the economical framework and supporting large-scale replications.

This Transferability Handbook has been elaborated as a toolbox targeting cities and service providers looking for references, concrete experiences and contacts. It presents a digest of OPTICITIES key results.
