The consortium comprises three biggest technical universities, one public research institution and six commercial companies that rank among leading players in the fields of IT, software, data collection and practical implementation of intelligent transport systems on the Czech market. The consortium is composed of partners that have been selected in order to achieve SRA (Strategic research agenda) objectives such as introduction of new traffic and mobility monitoring methods, their integration with existing mobility monitoring methods or more precisely creation of complex information superstructure for transport and subsequent introduction of new mobility management and regulation methods, their testing and continuous improvement. In order to gain the highest possible level of „real world“ knowledge, the outputs (methods, applications, technologies etc.) will be practically implemented and operated in the long run in real life conditions throughout the project duration. The composition of RODOS project partners has been suggested with regard to this requirement as well. The institutions responsible for road traffic and public transport systems´ operation (Ministry of Transport, Roads of Ostrava, Roads of Brno, Technical road maintenance Prague, Police of the Czech Republic, Integrated Rescue System and selected public transport companies) have been invited to cooperate in addition to the consortium members. The Center for the Development of Transportation Systems is made up of carefully selected partners possessing the background, experience, know-how, specialists and facilities to achieve the goals of the strategic research agenda.
