The aim of this document is to indicate how the results of COLOMBO can be exploited. The document does not only focus on the duration of the project, but also assesses the possibilities beyond the end at 31st of October 2015. A good reference for the exploitability of the COLOMBO results is the Technology Readiness Level (TRL), which is used in the document to indicate the maturity and marketability of the results. COLOMBO detection algorithms were developed for several situations. Data fusion between green phase duration and travel times from for instance navigation systems, can give useful estimates of traffic volumes. Full cooperative vehicles can give both queue estimates and traffic flow estimations and a work is being carried out on a separate traffic anomalies detection algorithm. Apart from the detection and traffic control algorithms, COLOMBO also developed and improved simulation tooling to facilitate the work in the project. The document also reviewed exploitation from a stakeholder perspective. Road operators and governments will profit from the availability of a lower cost alternative to current traffic control solutions both in initial investment and maintenance. Road users benefit from more efficient traffic control, resulting in lower travel time and fuel savings. Having a cooperative system in the vehicle also guarantees the queue the road user currently is in, has been detected by the controller. Therefore, cooperative vehicles are expected to have a lower average travel time. Traffic engineers, consultants, industry and researchers benefit from the (open source) tooling released by COLOMBO for their work.
