ELIPTIC Webinar Series

Simulation tools help public authorities in the planning of e-bus systems and electrification of their fleets. They are an integral part of the work in the use cases of Pillar A “Safe integration of e-Buses using existing electric public transport infrastructure” of the ELIPTIC project. After a short introduction into the work of the ELIPTIC project and the use cases related to the webinar’s topic, the presenters from the research organisations RWTH Aachen, Fraunhofer IVI and Vrije Universiteit Brussel showed different aspects of simulation that help in the planning of e-buses. This included the presentation of a software-based approach to find the optimal technical configuration for the use of e-buses on different routes by Fabian Meishner, RWTH Aachen. These calculations are a helpful tool to build sound business cases for the long-term use of electric bus systems. An example was also given of the results of a vehicle simulation-based feasibility study of converting a Diesel bus line with hybrid trolleybuses (by extending the existing trolleybus line) in a rural area in the East of Germany (Dr.-Ing Thoralf Knote, Fraunhofer IVI). Hybrid trolleybuses have an on-board energy storage which enables a fully electric operation without catenaries. Finally, the webinar addressed design questions and charging strategies for e-buses, exemplified in the case of Brussels (Prof. Dr. Omar Hegazy, Vrije Universiteit Brussel).

Eurotransport webinars

Fare collection systems are a hot topic in the transit industry, due to a number of new and exciting technologies emerging and gaining adoption. However, these changes also make it harder to predict the future and get a good grasp on where the industry is heading.

In this webinar our expert panel reviewed the range of ticketing trends taking place and we heard first hand from transport operators tackling these issues head on.

  • Is the Future of Ticketing Account Based?
  • Fare Collection Trends: Issued Ticked Media vs Passenger Owned (BYOT)
  • EMV Contactless vs Mobile Ticketing: Which One is Best?
  • Mobile Ticketing Technologies: Barcode, vs SMS, vs NFC, vs Bluetooth.
  • Mobile First and Mobile Ticketing 2.0
  • Preston Bus Case Study: Speeding up Bus Services by 9 Seconds per Passenger
  • Keolis Case Study: Seamless door-to-door journeys

Eurotransport webinars

Technology developments make possible a new generation of on-demand / flexible public transport services, more cost-effective and better tailored to market circumstances than prior offerings. Such services targeted at the general public — for both first mile / last mile access and local circulation purposes — have been deployed in 22 service zones by the Denver transit agency in the largest implementation to date in the USA. The technology platform for managing these services, MobilityDR, is key to this outcome.

In this webinar, DemandTrans Solutions and its partners show how an appropriate technology platform in combination with innovative service concepts provides regional transit authorities with the ability to configure, control, and operate cost-effective DRT / flexible transit services.

ELIPTIC webinar series

Braking energy recovery technologies are an opportunity to increase the energy efficiency in public transport systems like metro, light rail/tram or trolleybus networks and will be presented during this first webinar of the ELIPTIC project (link is external). Different technologies in this field are part of the work in the use cases of Pillar B “Innovative energy storage systems to increase operational efficiency” of the ELIPTIC project. After a short introduction into the work of the ELIPTIC project and the objectives and use cases related to the webinar’s topic, the presenters from the public transport companies STIB (Brussels, Belgium) and PKT (Gdynia, Poland) will show braking energy recovery technologies for metro (and how to transfer the approach to light rail) and trolleybus systems. They will explain their development background from the European projects Ticket to Kyoto (NWE Interreg) and CIVITAS-DYN@MO, and show experiences with their systems in operation as well as results in terms of increased operational efficiency through these systems. Furthermore, they will present how their current braking energy recovery approaches and technologies will be developed further in the ELIPTIC use cases.

Eurotransport webinars

The accelerated use of contactless technologies and the convergence of multiple applications demands secure, proven and stable technologies which also have the flexibility to benefit from future technology and application trends. The Sistema Único de Boleto Electrónico card (the SUBE card) has recently been an outstanding success in Argentina. This webinar will show how Nacion Servicios – the public transport operator responsible for SUBE’s AFC system – migrated its automatic fare collection system to include a new level of high security, allowing the possibility of the future expansion of its operation to other cities in Argentina. Eurotransport’s forthcoming webinar, hosted by NXP Semiconductors, will offer a platform from which delegates can learn about SUBE’s challenges, experiences and solutions in upgrading, using NXP’s MIFARE Plus product family – and the wide range of application possibilities that opened up through this transition. The webinar will consist of two 15-20 minute presentations, as well as a Q&A session where delegates have the opportunity to ask questions directly to our speakers. Presentations will come from NXP Semiconductors’ Miguel Padula – Business Development Manager South America AFC & Banking, and Johannes Grüll – Product Marketing Manager MIFARE Classic & MIFARE Plus. Miguel is responsible for developing AFC and Banking business in South America, supporting main AFC migration and banking convergence in the region. Johannes is globally responsible for the go-to-market and pricing strategy for the MIFARE Classic and MIFARE Plus product families. Johannes is engaged in different application segments from access management and public transport to gaming and many more.

SOLUTIONS

Many cities strive for a cleaner vehicle fleet, whether the aim is to improve the municipal fleet (including public transport vehicles) or to encourage residents to choose alternatively fuelled or electric vehicles over conventionally fuelled vehicles. This interactive webinar will provide an introduction to EVs as well as guidance on how to increase the use of EVs in urban environments. Options on fostering EV deployment and examples from cities around the world will be discussed.

SOLUTIONS Training Kit

In the face of urban traffic congestion, traffic pollution, carbon emissions and high energy consumption, more and more cities turn to public transport. Under the condition of limited urban space and increasing urban population in cities in emerging countries, optimisation of public transport becomes important. SOLUTIONS will focus on tested public transport solutions related to Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) in Asia and Latin America, trolley buses in Europe, Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) in Singapore and public transport operations

SOLUTIONS Knowledge Sharing Kit

SOLUTIONS will focus on infrastructure for public transport (tramways, bus lanes, passenger waiting and boarding areas), infrastructure for soft modes (e.g. cycle routes, pedestrian facilities) and infrastructure for urban freight systems. Quality passenger transport is highly dependent on improved infrastructure whilst continued efficient operations are reliant on adequate and timely maintenance. This element will also include better sharing of road-space between guided vehicles (e.g. trams and guided buses) and bus lanes as well as separate dedicated public transport routes. With respect to walking and cycling, easy substitutes for trips of less than 5 kilometers, improvements in infrastructure quality and safety, design of cycle ways and pavements, parking spaces for bicycles, and more will be addressed. Freight transport infrastructure issues to be considered will include loading areas, appropriate access control including signage as well as other measures to improve productivity with reduced disruption.
