2Introduction to transport telematicsTelematics systems can make transport systems smart (capable of dealing with new situations).Telematics systems allow better collection, coordination and use of traffic data to manage traffic and to provide information.Data can be collected by (f.i. ): Automated systems, CCTV.And transferred by: GPS (Galileo), EGNOS, GSM, WLAN.Different applications can evaluate, visualise and warehouse this information to help solve bottlenecks and unsafe situations.

Dutch examples: Multi-Agent Local Adaptive Control applied to traffic signalsCIVITAS II Telematics measuresTraffic monitoring and control (16 measures)The provision of a database by developing a common database and setting up guidelines for data collection (Preston, La Rochelle, Venice)The work on a satellite based traffic management system (Malm, Toulouse, Ploiesti, Venice)The definition of an area-restricted or event-oriented traffic management system (Stuttgart, Venice)Management of traffic flows through adaptive traffic signal control to reduce traffic emissions (Malm) Monitoring traffic for road safety and accident prevention (Krakow)

Prioritisation of public transport (9 measures)Provision of infrastructureImproving passenger convenienceProviding information

Main outcomes CIVITAS II theme TelematicsLarge effects on transport impactsEffects on public transport travel time reductions was very positive (between 3 and 25%)Effects on public transport time keeping was generally positive

Environmental effects positive: Fuel savings

Majority of public accepts PT prioritization

Costs of telematics measures varied considerably

Transport telematics in CIVITAS Plus49 measures are being implemented at the moment in the 25 CIVITAS Plus cities.

Some examples will be shown by the next speakers after this presentation.

Results expected end 2012/beginning 2013:Measure evaluation result sheetsCluster report about telematicsPolicy recommendations about telematics

Thematic group about telematics
