The paper presents the results of the evaluation of the first smart traffic management cooperative systems to be introduced and deployed in the UK. The implementation was first installed as part of the EU COMPASS 4D project between 2012 and 2015 and is being further developed and extended (both in terms of geographic area and in terms of use cases) in a UK DfT (Department for Transport) funded project. The deployment was first extensively evaluated for it’s contribution to deliver fuel savings and emissions reductions through selective green light priority. However with the DfT funding the use cases have been extended to vulnerable road user detection and bus management. The short paper (abstract) presented here will be developed into a full paper providing new information never presented before on the evaluation of the Newcastle CITS system.
