A consortium of companies was handling the project, which consisted of 27 partners from 9 European countries. The project ran in 2015 – 2018.

The coordinator of the entire consortium was UNIFE. OLTIS Group has been involved in 7 work packages out of a total of 9. Moreover, it has acted as a leader of the WP4 working package Trip Tracker, where it has made the largest and most important part of the work.
