In PPA Zuidoost (southeast) the emphasis is on strengthening and improving individual recommendations (in-car) by using information that can be acquired and processed with roadside systems (developed in PPA and elsewhere). At the same time, the existing traffic control scenarios are used more dynamically and efficiently by using the in-car data. The biggest challenge here lies in the events traffic in Amsterdam Southeast, in relation to other target groups in this area. PPA Zuidoost thus tests mainly the added value of roadside/in-car integration for in-car services. PPA Zuidoost can also contribute to a transition from less roadside and more in-car.
OPTICITIES is a three-years innovation project implemented between 2013 and 2016. It gathered European cities, companies and research institutes to develop and experiment innovative Intelligent Transport System (ITS) solutions to foster efficient and sustainable urban mobility.
OPTICITIES addressed the whole information value chain on mobility: from data collection to processing up to services’ delivery towards final users including network operators, citizens and freight operators. One of the project’s singularities was based on the cooperation of operators and innovators looking jointly forward to scale up solutions aimed at being implemented and commercialised in a three years horizon.
OPTICITIES results are impressive! They include operational tools and solutions, some of them already supporting network exploitation, providing concrete answers to urban mobility stakes.
They also include prospective developments designed to address tomorrow’s challenges in terms of urban mobility at European scale. All approaches have been conducted including the idea of challenging the economical framework and supporting large-scale replications.
This Transferability Handbook has been elaborated as a toolbox targeting cities and service providers looking for references, concrete experiences and contacts. It presents a digest of OPTICITIES key results.
Signal optimization and bus priority in Herning, Denmark
Smartic is modular platform that covers data aquisition and processing (traffic situation and volume, calculation if travel time, continuous traffic load maps), traffic monitoring, adaptive traffic management using defined management scenarios, traffic information dissemination (web-based and mobile application, TMC, V2I) and analytical information for traffic engineers.
From 16.-19. April 2018 Europes biggest Transport Research Conference, the Transport Research Arena, will take place in Vienna. Under the motto "a digital era for transport. solutions for society, economy and environment" about 3.000 international experts will discuss about the latest research results and future developments in mobility and transport.
The Transport Research Arena (TRA), initiated in 2006, takes place every two years in another European city. The TRA is supported by the European Commission, the European Technology Platforms ERTRAC (European Road Transport Research Advisory Council), ERRAC (European Rail Research Advisory Council), WATERBORNE as well as CEDR (Conference of European Directors of Roads) and ALICE (Alliance for Logistics Innovation through Collaboration).
DIC Brno system ensures the traffic data collection from telematics devices and detectors and traffic information in the City of Brno area. DIC Brno process that data and provide the complex information to the traffic engineers, users from city road management authorities and to the public via web or mobile application.
The scope of the project was a construction and system implementation of complex solution for traffic information provision. The performance of the contract include:
• 51 gantry with Variable Message Signs (VMS) hardware,
• the connection and system integration with the current traffic information and management system
• implementation of new software solution for the latest VMS generation control with ability to influence the traffic by automatic traffic management scenario selection.
