Geofencing for traffic management? Learn from new project results by GeoSence

Geofencing is a digital service that triggers an action, when a certain device enters a set location. What is the current state of implementing Geofencing technology in urban traffic management? A new report is now available by the GeoSence project.

This new report is a result of a literature review and document gathering focused on geofence cases specific for traffic management. You can read about geofence use cases that are trialled, or to be trialled, as well as implemented cases. Explore conceptual and potential future use cases, for different types of transport, and how geofence zones can be applied.

Guidelines and recommendations from national authorities show that joint regulation or guidelines for using geofencing is low – with some exceptions. Digital representation of traffic regulation will be crucial for enabling geofencing.

GeoSence is a JPI Urban Europe project with partners from Germany, Norway, Sweden and the UK,  funded in the ENUAC call. What can be the full potential of implementing Geofencing technology in urban traffic management and planning? Follow this project’s progress to find out the coming years!
