Suceava , SMILE

The VMS equipment in the historical, representative zone of the city monitors an area seriously affected by traffic congestion which has led to a rise in pollution and noise levels and a poor quality of life. Two other VMSs are installed in two demo places, one at the end of the Low Emission Zone and the other one at the roundabout near the eastern entrance to the city.

A third VMS has recently been installed and offering, due to its technical structure, qualitative data about three pollutant factors: CO, NO2 and SO2. Quantitative data is stored and is processed, with cooperation from EPA Suceava, which has a fixed station in that area, too. The display offers information about temperature, date and time, to assist in making a general analysis, at a certain time unit period. Thus, this VMS is a precise tool to continuously measure the level of pollution indicators, to determine the degree in which traffic (at that point) is generating environmental problems, and at the same time, to measure the impact of the SMILE project measures. VMSs are a very reliable support for real time information, because of the obviousness of their location and visibility; no one can pass them by without being aware of their existence and use. Therefore, they will have a significant impact on increasing public acceptance and awareness of the need to protect the environment and improve quality of. In the future, when the Mobility Centre is established, VMSs will have an extra “task”- to delivering information collected centrally at the City Hall.
