Project Name: SHared automation Operating models for Worldwide adoption


The SHOW project aims to advance sustainable urban transport through technical solutions, business models and priority scenarios for impact assessment by deploying shared, connected, electrified fleets of automated vehicles in coordinated Public Transport (PT), Demand Responsive Transport (DRT), Mobility as a Service (MaaS) and Logistics as a Service (LaaS) operational chains in real-life urban demonstrations all across Europe.

SHOW will conduct real-life urban demonstrations taking place in 20 cities in Europe for 24 months, with real-service seamless operation in each pilot site lasting at least 12 months.

In total, SHOW will deploy a fleet of more than 70 SAE L4/L5 AVs of all types for both passenger and cargo transport in dedicated lanes and mixed traffic, connected to a wide range of supporting infrastructure (5G, G5, IoT) and operating under traffic speeds ranging from 18 to over 50km/h.

By doing this, SHOW aims to promote and evaluate the future transformation of the current city traffic environment and ecosystem to a fully sustainable one driven by automation, electrification, cooperativeness, and inclusiveness.

Reason for applying to services


In a project of  SHOW's magnitude and complexity,  we need all the expert help that we can get, in particular in an area such as standardisation, which is particularly important due to the novelties and innovative approaches to intelligent transport that the project proposes. 


Main Standardisation Interests


In SHOW DoA, there is the specific task A15.6: Standardisation & certification; task description as below:

SHOW will adhere to all standards of the area (of ETSI TC ITS - Application Requirements and Services, ISO TC 204 - Intelligent transport systems CEN TC 278 - Intelligent transport systems, etc.) whereas it plans to contribute to some of them on the basis of its demonstration results along with new messages, new services and data models update (as detailed in section 2.2.3). SHOW will make an effort to be actively represented by its members to the most important standardisation working groups. Also, harmonisation of requirements will be considered when applying for a license exemption, taking into account that the exemption process for testing AD vehicles differs widely in different Member States. This task will analyse all the requirements defined in each pilot site for testing and will work in the harmonisation of requirements procedure to be taken into account when applying for a license exemption.
