Openvia & GMV partner for NeoRoads initiative on smart roads

Openvia MobilityGlobalvia’s technology and innovation platform, has signed a collaboration agreement with technology group GMV as part of its NeoRoads initiative, which focuses on the development of connected, safe, and sustainable roads. OpenVia accelerates the future of connected mobility with its V2X (Vehicle-to-Everything) solutions. These solutions enhance communication between vehicles and infrastructure for safer, smarter transportation.

The agreement, signed on Friday, 12 January 2024, was reached with GMV’s General Management Office for Intelligent Transportation Systems. Openvia, as a mobility services operator, considers this office to be a reference in connected vehicle and road solutions.

This partnership aims to leverage GMV’s expertise in technology to enhance Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) communication. It facilitates seamless interaction between vehicles, infrastructure, and other elements of the road environment. The agreement is poised to drive significant advancements in smart mobility solutions, fostering safer and more efficient transportation systems globally.

The main goal of this partnership is to jointly explore and develop solutions that meet connected road use cases. Leveraging the V2X communications technology stack at both ends of the segment – on-road and in-vehicle – will achieve this. Furthermore, the partnership will have a particular focus on 5G-V2X cellular-based connectivity technology.

The aim of the NeoRoads initiative is to provide road operators with a complete package of services and technologies. This package will enable them to digitalize their infrastructure, improving their operations and maintenance. Additionally, it will help them adapt to new types of traffic and the ever-changing needs of their end users. As its main benefits, NeoRoads will make it possible to:

– Optimize and streamline road operations, improve the use of resources and the speed of decision-making and response, and increase road safety conditions for all stakeholders: drivers, motorway workers, vulnerable users, etc.

– Adapt to new types of electric and connected vehicle traffic and offer new services tailored to the needs of end users. Moreover, this will allow for greater enrichment of the entire mobility and infrastructure ecosystem. Technology will enhance environmental, social, and economic sustainability. It will also provide stakeholders with greater resilience in increasingly uncertain times and contexts.

– Make infrastructure maintenance activities more efficient and sustainable by preventing failures and addressing deficiencies before they occur.

GMV will play a key role in this Openvia project when it comes to using C-V2X communications and other ITS elements as enabling technologies to develop use cases, including those related to road safety: road works ahead, cooperative maneuvers between vehicles and infrastructure, and many others, with the aim of revitalizing and updating the added value that traditional operators can offer to their road users in the new era.

“For us, the key to success is collaboration with strategic players in our mobility and technology ecosystem. Moreover, we firmly believe that this alliance with GMV will open the door for us to make great strides in our connected and smart roads, which will translate into real use cases that will have an impact on our users and society at large.” – Fernando Vallejo Lázaro, Managing Director of Openvia Mobility 

“We delight in working with Openvia to deliver connected vehicle and road solutions. With our combined experience and expertise, we will deliver innovative, cost-effective, and reliable solutions that meet the current needs of operators around the world.” – Miguel Ángel Martínez Olagüe, Intelligent Transportation Systems General Manager.
