Mercury. Smart Sustainable Mobility
With the Mercury Programme. Smart Sustainable Mobility , Autostrade per l'Italia group is working to build a large unitary and coordinated hub for technological innovation to guarantee safer infrastructures and play a leading role in the revolution that decarbonisation, digitisation and new transport services are bringing to all mobility systems.
Mercury is structured in 5 clusters covering all areas of environmental sustainability and technological development of the network.
Macro-projects carried out by Autostrade per l'Italia, in collaboration with its subsidiaries:
Each cluster consists of a set of solid macro-projects, some undergoing the testing phase and others the roll-out phase
Digitisation and modernisation of infrastructures to enable the implementation of advanced technological solutions, to collect and exchange new informationLearn more
Innovative solutions for improving traffic flow through the implementation of intelligent road systemsLearn more
Digitisation and automation of collection systems to enable new pricing modelsLearn more
Solutions to enhance environmental sustainability, generate energy from renewable sources and build an infrastructure to enable new mobility servicesLearn more
New services and innovative solutions geared towards the end user and Public Administrations managing mobility in metropolitan areasLearn more
A project that implements the systems enabling all other initiatives, the creation of services that improve mobility and the coordinated management of information and road operations. It therefore encompasses all projects that include both the infrastructure and the technologies capable of detecting, transmitting and processing data from the network in real time and enabling all subsystems within the V2X (vehicle to everything) connectivity
A set of initiatives aimed at improving traffic safety, control and quality of traffic and mobility, monitoring road infrastructure assets (bridges, viaducts, tunnels), informing and assisting users right from the trip planning stage.
This cluster is aimed at making toll payment mechanisms more flexible and efficient in order to: simplify payment operations and transform the toll collection system into a pricing tool, useful for reducing congestion, encouraging sustainable behaviour and multi-modality.
This cluster covers the motorway network innovations needed to accompany the energy transition of the road infrastructure and the vehicles travelling on it, through the progressive installation of high-intensity electric charging stations and other initiatives including the production of electricity through the installation of photovoltaic panels along the areas surrounding the motorway to reach the NET ZERO target.
This cluster consists of systems enabling the integration of motorway mobility with that of metropolitan areas through travel 'customization'. Projects that aim to provide users with alternatives modes of transport when they reach the urban area.
