FMI has long experience within intelligent traffic research in Arctic conditions. Energy-efficient and low-carbon solutions have not yet been in the focus of intelligent traffic research. In this project FMI will study such kind of energy-efficient methodologies in Arctic traffic environment.

Within the Sod5G-test track in Sodankylä airport these energy-efficient methods are defined and developed. The methods are tailored into the test track practical environment, but obviously the methods are to be transformable to real-life traffic environment as well. The methods are brought into practical pilot systems as well, whenever the existing test track infrastructure allows this.

The project generates a state-of-the-art report of available and applicable methods for improving energy efficiency and ecology of arctic traffic environment. Solutions are piloted in the Sod5G-environment, if enabled by the existing infrastructure. Piloted solutions are tested and reported as part of the state-of-the-art report.
