|SCUTUM breakthrough for EGNOS in the road transport of dangerous goods|
ENI has decided to adopt EGNOS Commercial Service (CS) to remotely monitor its operational fleet with a guaranteed and accurate position. The SCUTUM project upgrades the ENI system from EGNOS Open Service (OS) to EGNOS CS, based on the use of EDAS.
By December 2010, more than 100 tankers operating in Italy, France and Austria will be tracked and traced by means of EGNOS CS.
In parallel, a CEN Workshop is to be launched to initiate the standardization of the EGNOS Commercial Service/EDAS based services for the freight transport. The SCUTUM CEN Workshop will be kicked off on the 28th of September 2010 in Brussels (Belgium) at the CEN-CENELEC Management Centre. A public consultation is now open. The SCUTUM CEN Workshop Business Plan detailing the scope and goal of the standardization action, is published at www.cen.eu/go/SCUTUM.
European interested stakeholders (from agencies, authorities, institutions, industries, transport operators) are invited to register for membership in accordance with the CEN Rules for CEN Workshops and to provide comments to the published Business Plan.
The SCUTUM CEN Workshop will be completed in November 2011.
