Integrated Mobility Solutions for Smart Cities Highlighted at March 20-March 23 Event
Vienna/Amsterdam, March 20, 2018 — Kapsch TrafficCom will highlight its integrated mobility solutions for smart, safe and sustainable mobility for cities, highways and tunnels at the Intertraffic in Amsterdam from March 20 to 23. Kapsch has maximized the development of integrated multi-modal transportation application solutions and forward-looking Intelligent Mobility Solutions (IMS), to achieve better overall mobility whether on the highway or in the city. The upgraded portfolio may be experienced at the Kapsch booth #11.103 in Hall 11.
Integrated Mobility Solutions for convenient travelling and traffic management
Today’s transportation management requires full integration of traffic and mobility services, which has been considered separately and in a unique way. Travelers need real-time information about transport options and multimodal route alternatives, including booking and payment services. Authorities and mobility operators need to manage traffic in real-time, based on current events and provide fast assistance in case of emergencies. At the Intertraffic Amsterdam, Kapsch will demonstrate how this is made possible by modal shift and traffic management. These are integral elements that combine several solutions into one platform.
A key component of this solution is Kapsch’s integrated mobility management EcoTrafiX™, which helps to reduce travel time and carbon emissions while improving travelers’ safety. By integrating all traffic data from both vehicles and infrastructure into a real-time dynamic visualization approach, authorities and operators can optimize traffic. They benefit from decision support for reactive response to incidents and events, in addition to multi-agency coordination. Another key factor of the solution is the cloud-based service solution FluidHub, which is the smart connecting part in the Mobility-as-a-Service ecosystem. It integrates and connects data gathered and managed via ExoTrafiX™ and allows mobility service providers to offer optimized mobility packages.
Visitors at the Kapsch booth will experience how the real-time traffic, air quality information, smart parking and connected vehicle (V2X, vehicle-to-everything) data are merged into mobility applications at travelers’ fingertips. They will also be able to plan trips, book transport services and experience the ease of integrating and configuring new services.
New generation of tolling and connected vehicles solutions for improved usability
In addition to the integrated mobility solutions, Kapsch excels with its tolling and connected vehicles portfolio and increases its focus on road user services. The new VDX sensor combines several features such as video detection, classification systems, ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) front/rear cameras and illumination into one device. The small senor is lightweight, compact and cost-efficient.
V2X technology relies on data from vehicles and infrastructure systems interconnected with each other. Focusing on this, Kapsch will showcase its new Roadside Unit (RIS-9160) which was recently tested in a V2X pilot test installation on Lithuania’s motorway A1 from the vicinity of Kaunas to Vilnius.
