The CEDR Transnational Research Programme (TRP) operates through a few yearly calls that are transnational topics that target the requirements of European road authorities. The goal is to produce research outcomes which can be implemented by CEDR people and donate to a secure, sustainable and efficient road system across European countries. It is funded by CEDR users for a basis that is voluntary. Participation is available to any appropriate entity, though all consortia should be led with a appropriate entity from the country that is european.
Call 2018 may have two research programmes:
- Sound and Nuisance
- Building Information Modelling (BIM)
These programmes were ready via considerable assessment among CEDR users about their research requires under these subjects.
Sound and Nuisance
The goal of this research programme would be to recognize, start thinking about and gain a better knowledge of current and more recent techniques to reduce sound publicity and sound nuisance for individuals residing near nationwide roadways, and also to recognize techniques which could enhance the means sound is sensed by these individuals. This research programme will examine the next three sub-themes:
(i) quieter tyres, tyre labelling system and sidewalks;
(ii) optimization and securing the performance of sound obstacles; and
(iii) psycho-acoustics: improved understanding of people’s subjective responses to road sound.
Building Information Modelling (BIM)
As a consequence of the CEDR Call 2015 a framework for the European road OTL can be obtained.
