The COHESIVE project aims to progressively integrate and demonstrate the various technological innovations developed in the other IP4 projects. This objective will be achieved through specific activities: set up of a common technical approach for all IP4 projects allowing the collection of consistent results, definition of (three) successive releases based on use-cases with increased scope and market value, integration of the building blocks developed in the other IP4 projects, and flagship demonstrations which will pave the way of a solid market uptake.
Main objectives associated to the overall IP4 and its related demonstrations:
WP1 - Technical coordination of ITD4.7 and technical interface with IP4 The Technical coordination work package will address the following objectives:
Effective technical coordination of ITD4.7 and the close technical interface with the IP4 projects to guarantee homogeneity of goals and scheduling, as well as coordinated and cooperative communication and exchange of information.
Monitor and ensure the progress of the integration activities and the necessary coordination and communication amongst the various TD;
Definition of Technical Principles to be applied;WP2 - Engineering consistency management The Engineering consistency management work package will address the following objectives:
Establishment of Engineering methodology & guidelines and promote the application of a robust engineering system methodology.
Creation and update of a common Glossary to formalize the technical and business environment
Identification of a top level requirements’ baseline that will be applicable to all TDs
Interface consistency to guarantee the overall uniformity of concepts application and the interoperability and openness of the design
Configuration management of the different packages, modules or components.WP3 - End to end Use cases definition The End to end Use cases definition work package will address the following objectives:
Identification and characterization of major mobility distresses felt on Multimodal transportation environments, to be addressed on the project;
Definition of use cases that will enable to test the concepts, modules and tools developed on the different IP4 projects.
Definition of user profiles and personas;
Production of evaluation reports and results of tests;
Overall use cases planning covering: time (phases and iterations), spatial (projects, sites) and common methodology to be adopted.WP4 - Testing and Integration The Testing and Integration work package will address the following objectives:
Definition a set of integration tests to validate the communication and relationship between components of different TDs.
Ensure all requirements are met, and that all output are as expected for the given input.
Scenarios definition to test different inputs and conditions of the use cases defined in other WPs
Definition of integration procedures;
Perform the integration of the outcome of the different releasesWP5 - Demonstrations The Demonstrations work package will address the following objectives:
Define the functionalities for the demonstration scenarios
Design the evaluation framework for the demonstration scenarios
Perform the live testing in the selected scenariosWP6 - Dissemination and Communication WP7 - Project Management

A Shift2Rail webinar series entitled “Moving Around Europe Seamlessly!” were held on May 2020 presenting and discussing mobility topics and seamless door-to-door traveltools under development. Two exciting webinars demonstrated the current results of key projects working under Shift2Rail’s Innovation Programme 4 (IP4), dedicated to digital services facilitating mobility as a service in rail. The first session, held on 12th May explored Shift2Rail innovations from the travellers’ perspective, and the second one, held on 14thMay looked at Shift2Rail innovations from a transport service providers’perspective. Both of them presented topics with their point of view and its relevance for the IP4 ecosystem development. These innovative results were showcasedby the following Shift2Rail projects: COHESIVE, CONNECTIVE, MaaSive, Shift2Maas, My-TRAC and SPRINT.
Those can be reviewed in Youtube:

The IP4 Workshop and Meeting has occurred from 27th to 28th November 2019 in Malaga. The event included a COHESIVE Alpha release presentation and demonstration of available functionalities (also containing results from IT2Rail/Co-Active/ATTRACkTIVE/CONNECTIVE projects), and a presentation ofMaaSive/CONNECTIVE planned technologies for 2020. Furthermore, a presentation of SPRINT and My-TRAC projects and demonstration of available functionalities was held, plus presentation of starting project Ride2Rail. Additionally, Shift2MaaSproject presented its scope for the demonstrationsplanned in three locations: Lisbon, Malaga and Central-East corridor (Austria,Germany, Czech Republic). This workshop was a great way to share knowledge and define collaborations between projects, where It was also defined a dissemination strategy and event coordination for TRA2020 and InnoTrans2020.
The COHESIVE Project Alpha release demonstration was held in Brussels on 5th November 2019. The event was planned in collaboration with projects ATTRACkTIVE and Co-Active final events. The aim of the session was to demonstrate that all IP4 concepts and building blocks developed by the different CFM projects are integrated and working in a coherent ecosystem that could provide to the travellers a seamless journey experience across Europe. The COHESIVE Alpha Release demonstration was thus the first step in a line of demonstrations that took the results of ATTRACkTIVE, Co-Active and the first outcomes of CONNECTIVE into consideration. It could be shown that all systems were integrated with success allowing to perform the demonstration in two different corridors (“Berlin > Amsterdam” and “Barcelona > Madrid”).
From Monday the 23rd to Thursday the 26th of September, representatives of project partners met at HaCon premises in Hanover, Germany, for a TMT meeting week. The current status of CONNECTIVE, MaaSive and COHESIVE were presented, open points discussed and the next steps planned. As ATTRACkTIVE and Co-Active have officially ended, the final event and review were planned. The get-together ended after several productive days filled with fruitful discussions and exciting outlooks as to what will be developed during the scope of the respective projects.
On July 23rd and 24th COHESIVE and My-TRAC partners met at the Polytechnic University of Catalonia for an integration meeting. During the fruitful gathering, the work conducted in both projects was presented and compared. The strategies were also elaborated to link the project results and are to be incorporated in the near future as both projects aim to develop user friendly personal applications to enhance Europe-wide travel experiences.
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.
