The overall objective of CO-ACTIVE is to provide new concepts, tools, and systems to improve the attractiveness of rail transport by offering more intuitive and engaging travel experience to customers while shielding them from the complexity and heterogeneity of services for door-to-door intermodal journeys.
It addresses the general enrichment of the ‘one-stop-shop’ capability as initiated in the IT2Rail project and further completes the scope of functionality by addressing post-sale business transactions, and an underlying payment-settlement solution for comodally retailed products and services. This provides the opportunity to focus specifically on those aspects whose level of customer-perceived risk discourages the advance purchase of comodal travel entitlements:
WP1 - Travel ShoppingThe Travel Shopping work package will address the following objectives:
Enrich Journey Planning functionalities by ensuring the re-accommodation of journey
Enlarge the journey planning by taking into account the first and last miles, allowing the traveller to use personal or shared transport modes (e.g. Car sharing, Bike Sharing)
Refine the offer building with more information, alternatives and ancillary services.
Manage the failure cases
Develop Technology Demonstrators for Rail and Urban domain with the addition of the Car-Sharing, Bike-Sharing and Car park management.WP2 - Booking & TicketingThe Booking & Ticketing work package will address the following objectives:
Model the travel rights in order to manage a smart re-accommodation of the co-modal journey
Manage the failure cases
Ensure the correct clearing and settlement for business entities
Develop Technology Demonstrators for Rail and Urban domain with the addition of the Car-Sharing, Bike-Sharing and Car park management.WP3 - Business and Contractual ManagementThe Business and Contractual Management work package will address the following objectives:
Analysis of the legal rules that govern the transportation business and the relation between the business partners between them and with the end-users
Analysis of the Terms and Conditions for the retail and usage policy
Specify and model data for future management of the contractual aspect within the IP4 ecosystemWP4 - Technical Coordination and System CoherenceThe Technical Coordination and System Coherence work package will address the following objectives:
Define and apply the proven best practices in system engineering
Guarantee the technical consistency across the project work package and within work package in other projects
Manage the technical coordination and decide on mitigation strategy to bypass or resolve the technical issues
Foster of the convergences of technologies to facilitate the adoption across the Railway industry
Define the testing strategy and create testing material and means
Pre-integrate the software components inside the project and provide an active support to the ITD7
The partners plan to deliver software components through an iterative development process. Nevertheless, the Proof of Concepts solutions that will be demonstrated in two releases:
The Core Release (CREL), which will cover a first set of features
The Final Release (FREL), which will include all features identified in the technical scopeWP5 - Dissemination and CommunicationWP6 - Project Management

The TMT meetings for Co-Active on May 13th and ATTRACkTIVE, CONNECTIVE and COHESIVE on May 14th took place at Thales Portugal premises is Lisbon. Work done in all TDs was presented and discussed, and next steps were agreed on. Special attention was paid to the final steps for Co-Active and ATTRACkTIVE, which currently are in their end phase. The steering committee meeting on May 17th rounded off the TMT meetings.
On the 1st February 2019, COHESIVE project invited Co-Active partners to participate to a dissemination workshop with Portuguese Engineering Association in Lisbon. It was an opportunity to disseminate COHESIVE and other IP4 projects but also to get inputs from the audience.
After an brief introduction about IP4 and Shift2Rail, all TDs were exposed especially TD4.2 and TD4.3 focused in Co-Active project.
On 10th January 2019, the combined kick-off meeting of SPRINT & Shift2MaaS projects was held in Brussels, at Crowne Plaza Brussels. After both kick-off presentations, an IP4 Collaboration Workshop highlights special needs of these two Open Calls from CFM projects.
CFM projects - MaaSive, CONNECTIVE, COHESIVE, ATTRACkTIVE and finally Co-Active - were presented and raised questions from the audience. It was very interesting to see and realise how these Open-Calls will interact with Co-Active project.
The world transport fair "InnoTrans 2018" took place in Berlin from 18 to 21 September 2018. Shift2Rail was represented and IP4 fortunatly. It was a great opportunity for Co-Active to show some results and dissemination. A video ran in a loop explaining our goals and a validator allowed visitors to test the application.
The Co-Active and ATTRACkTIVE Mid-Term Event took place at Eisvogel in Vienna (Austria). It was on Friday, 20th April 9:00 to 14:30, open to public.
The aim of this event was to promote Co-Active and ATTRACkTIVE projects, but also other CFMs porjects: CONNECTIVE and COHESIVE.
