Transport Telematics

Welcome to the Thematic Group on Transport Telematics! This group brings together people working on and interested in Intelligent Transport Systems in urban areas to network and learn from each other. Furthermore, we try to respond to questions and ideas that members of the group have. More information about the group can be found below under 'description'.

With Transport Telematics we mean urban Intelligent Transport Systems (urban ITS). Urban ITS comprises all types of ITS that are applied in an urban area. Examples are traffic control management, traffic optimization, traffic monitoring, routing, access control, booking and ticketing, public transport priority, fleet management, real-time information, variable message signs, trip planning, and smartphone applications. Urban Intelligent Transport Systems are used to make traffic and transport in cities faster, safer, more sustainable, more comfortable and more user friendly. Urban ITS comprises all modes of transport (car, motorcycle, bicycle, pedestrian, public transport), and can help to coordinate traffic flow (for all users), improve public transport with faster and more reliable travel times and help cyclists and pedestrians by making roads safer. Intelligent Transport Systems allow better collection, coordination and use of traffic data to manage traffic, and tools to evaluate, visualise and warehouse this information can help solve bottlenecks and unsafe situations.

Last year the European project DRIVE C2X finished. This project carried out research on cooperative systems. Some of these systems are relevant for cities and might in the future be used in urban areas, therefore this email contains some of the results and provides a link to more information.

In the beginning of 2015, CIVITAS WIKI will write a policy note on urban Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) and traffic management. We already have some ideas for topics, but would like to hear from you (person working in/for a city) what your needs are.

Policy Recommendations For EU Sustainable Mobility Concepts based on CIVITAS Experience

The Policy Recommendations present the main findings arising from the evaluation of the CIVITAS Plus Collaborative Projects (CPs), which ran from 2008-2012.

This publication was written under the auspices of the CIVITAS POINTER project, which supported five collaborative projects (CP s) implemented within the framework of the third edition of the CIVITAS programme. Evaluation and monitoring were the key stones of CIVITAS POINTER. Drawing from first-hand, corroborated statistical evidence gathered from participating cities, this publication presents the results of the CIVITAS Plus cross-site evaluation and policy assessment. These findings support the development of clear European-level policy recommendations that have the potential for being embraced by all European cities — not just those which make up the CIVITAS community.

The document seeks to identify factors that can boost the effectiveness and consistency of future strategies, thereby securing greater sustainability in urban mobility patterns. Policy makers are provided with contemporary facts for debating purposes, and a number of conclusions and recommendations based on lessons learnt from CIVITAS Plus are put forward.
