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.

Modern transport telematics systems experimented by CIVITAS Plus cities (2008-2012) offer opportunities to make urban transport faster and more efficient, and support travellers. Communication technology are  used to coordinate traffic flows with the help of satellite-based applications, global positioning systems, wireless data transmission, automated traffic counting devices, and high- resolution cameras. Such technologies make it possible to give priority to public transport, improve parking management and better enforce road rules, but they can also provide passengers with real-time information and mobile guidance.

We are an start-up from Barcelona area developing an exciting project of shared mobility: Shotl (www.shotl.com). With Shotl, citizens will insert their desired origin and destination through their smart phone. The system will match the requested route with that of other users traveling in the same direction. One of our main focus is to offer a great customer experience during all the trip, including vehicles with extra comfort, facilities to work on board and vehicles driven by professionals.
We want to work together with public bodies and transit agencies to contribute to better, greener and more accessible cities, enabling the change to more car-independent lifestyles.

We are currently developing and calibrating our product, and trying to understand which are the best cities and environments to do our first deployments. Thus, we would really appreciate collaboration from this forum on the following topics:
- Previous similar experiences that could help us learning the crucial success factors (i.e. Kutsuplus in Helsinki) and best practices.
- Research studies investigating or predicting the potential impacts of a service like ours.
- Regulation, legal and political benchmarking (barriers and facilitators) among EU cities and countries.
- Suggestion of potential cities and areas that would be open and suitable to test Shotl.

Please do not hesitate to ask us more detailed questions about Shotl in case you are interested. We would appreciate help and suggestions.

Kind regards.

The purpose of traffic management is to inform, guide and if necessary direct road users. It is a management process that contributes to achieving policy objectives. Policy objectives in the urban context that ITS and traffic management can contribute to are for example: Accessibility of the city., a clean environment, low energy use, a safe city, and attractiveness of the city for tourists.

With this CIVITAS Insight, the CIVITAS CAPITAL project wants to provide information on ITS and its importance for a sustainable urban mobility.

As we are interested to get your views and ideas by 11 July 2016, all members of this Thematic Group have the possibility to contribute to the content of this CIVITAS Insight. If you are interested to contribute, please leave a message here!

Hyper urbanisation, climate change, and demographic and societal changes are some of the megatrends that have imposed pressures on transport networks and set obstacles to door-to-door mobility. By virtue of technological breakthroughs many of the obstacles could be hindered and seamless mobility could be achieved. Novel mobility services that heavily rely on technological advances could contribute to seamless mobility.

With this CIVITAS Insight, the CIVITAS CAPITAL project wants to provide information on Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) and its importance for a sustainable urban mobility.

As we are interested to get your views and ideas by 06 May 2016, all members of this Thematic Group have the possibility to contribute to the content of this CIVITAS Insight. If you are interested to contribute, please leave a message here!

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.
