Transport for NSW enlisted Accenture-owned software development firm, Industrie & Co, to help deliver the next generation of Sydney Adaptive Coordinated Traffic System (SCATS).

The new partnership will see the pair working on new features for the real-time traffic management system, which was first introduced in the 1970s to manage traffic light phasing and is now in use in 28 countries around the world. worldwide.

This comes several months after TfNSW abandoned its plan to commercialize SCATS, choosing instead to create a dedicated team to accelerate SCATS development and expand its business activities.

At the time of the decision, the agency said that the sustainability of the system would involve working with partners.

TfNSW’s deputy secretary for customer strategy and technology, Joost de Kock, said the partnership with Industrie & Co, which is the result of a “robust tendering process”, would provide the “next generation of SCATS “.

“SCATS uses algorithms and real-time traffic light data to help customers get to their destinations faster, and advanced sensors will help include cycling and pedestrian times,” he said.

“The new partnership will help us to further optimize their journeys by accelerating the development of new features to improve the system. “

De Kock previously reported better integration with third-party sensors, machine learning-based prediction, more sophisticated analytics, and UI / UX refresh as top priorities.

“Whether it’s saving people time with more green lights and fewer stops, prioritizing emergency vehicles to help save lives, or communicating directly with vehicles at the In the future, the next generation SCATS system will help us meet the needs of modern, smart cities and regional hubs, “he said.

Industry & Co partner Yianni Achele said the company is delighted to partner with TfNSW and that the next generation of SCATS will be “a leap in innovation”.

She added that “Industry & Co’s engineering heritage and extensive experience in designing and building new platforms” would ensure that SCATS is “ready for the next evolution in traffic management“.

TfNSW estimates that the system reduces travel times, emissions and fuel consumption by 28%, 15% and 12%, respectively, which represents $ 24 million in daily economic benefits in Sydney.

To do this, the system uses sensors at more than 4,300 intersections in New South Wales to adjust traffic lights according to changing traffic flows and to prioritize emergency vehicles and emergency services. public transport.

SCATS is one of TfNSW’s two main adaptive intelligent transport systems, the other being a multimodal transport management platform used for the intelligent congestion management program.

KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): The Automated Awareness and Safety System (Awas), formerly known as the Automatic Application System (AES), still operates and is applied based on standard operating procedures and guidelines set by the Department of Road Transport (JPJ).

Deputy Transport Minister Datuk Henry Sum Agong said revenue collected from paying Awas compounds or fines from September 1, 2018 to September 30 this year was over RM 9 million.

“The main objective of Awas is to change mentalities (on road safety) and to provide education and raise public awareness to respect the highway code for the safety and well-being of all road users. road.

“As of September 1, 2018, all aspects of the operation, maintenance, development and application of the Awa have been fully taken care of by the Ministry of Transport through JPJ,” he said. during the question-and-answer session in the Dewan Negara on Wednesday (October 20).

He said this in response to a question from Senator Datuk Othman Aziz who wanted to know the amount of collection obtained from Awas due to the misconduct of the drivers and whether it would be reintroduced.

Henry said that in 2018, a total of 84,116 calls were issued involving 77,233 speeding calls while 6,883 involved red lights.

“(However) the settlement rate (for all the summons concerned) is relatively low, that is to say that for the speed limit violations, only 10,604 (summons) were settled while for the traffic violations. traffic lights, only 1,703, “he said. – Bernama

Noida: The District Development Residents Welfare Association (DD RWA) held a meeting with DCP Traffic Ganesh Prasad Saha in their office on Monday, which, along with the DD RWA executive committee, were attended by representatives of many organizations from the District of Gautam Budh Nagar.

The meeting was chaired by Federation President NP Singh. Members were greeted with roses which were presented by DCP. During the meeting, various points were raised to improve the circulation system.

Officials discuss traffic issues with DCP Traffic

Some of them understood the importance of CCTV cameras. It was pointed out that in order to reduce the traffic problems of the city, it is very important to have CCTV cameras at all important intersections of the city roads. This will help create fear of challans and force commuters to follow traffic rules.

On the other hand, the issues related to motorists constantly driving while breaking all the rules were also discussed. It has been pointed out that at most intersections in the city, motorists constantly break all the rules, without keeping in mind the law and order and the rules, the main example of this is the intersection of Sector 57.

Written messages to respect traffic rules

Cars coming from the Khoda side at the red light in sector 57 must head towards sector 22 in the right direction. At the traffic light, all drivers park their cars on the left side while they must go to the right when the light turns green, and all go to the right, disturbing the vehicle and obstructing traffic. The installation of red lights at all these crossroads in the city was also highlighted.

Following on from the meeting, suggestions for the proper functioning of public transport were also discussed. It has been said that there is a serious shortage of city buses in public transport in the city of Noida, Greater Noida and here residents mainly have to travel with their personal transport, otherwise neighborhood residents travel by passenger car.

DD RWA Members Meet DCP Traffic

The work of dividing all those public cars circulating in the neighborhood by unique numbers and color codes has been done by the traffic department for some time, but the traffic department has not had particular success in this work. Therefore, it was requested to give a unique number to each passenger car which should be written in bold type on the front and rear of that car and also divided by the color code of the car according to the l ‘itinerary.

In addition, a request was made to DCP regarding the fixing of the dress code of the driver of the automobile and all three-wheeled passengers, passenger bus, truck, etc. in clear letters with the owner’s name, phone number and vehicle details. It should also be mandatory.

In the end, a request was also made to the DCP to visit the neighborhood traffic park as soon as possible. It has been said that most of the drivers in the neighborhood are those who have no knowledge of the traffic rules and that there is no traffic park in the neighborhood where traffic related information and training can. be given to residents.

Arrangements should be made for residents and commercial drivers to smoothly obtain information on traffic rules. For the same, a request was made to the DCP to implement the police check process in the district as well.

PETALING JAYA: Green package Bhd and FETC International Co (FETCi) will execute Malaysia’s first-ever proof of concept for a multi-lane free-flow (MLFF) toll system on Malaysian highways for a traffic-free journey through improved traffic infrastructure.

In a joint statement released yesterday, Green Packet said the MLFF proof of concept will first be installed at Besraya KM5.5 (northbound) and is expected to be collected for three months from early next year.

“Data collected from the proof of concept over the three month period will be shared with relevant authorities and stakeholders, with the primary purpose of proving and validating the feasibility of using the MLFF.

“The data and information are valuable for eventual deployment on Malaysian highways in accordance with the government’s roadmap for smoother traffic,” he added.

Green packageGreen package

Green Packet said it will provide the funding, local knowledge and expertise in fintech payments, while FETCi, an expert in RFID and free-flow tolling, will provide its expertise in the implementation of the MLFF and the frontal equipment.

Meanwhile, Green Packet Executive Director Shukor Karim said Malaysia’s first-ever proof of concept for an MLFF toll system was in line with the government’s efforts for better transport infrastructure, smoother traffic and less congestion.

“We look forward to making this a reality and continuing to work with the government to advance Malaysia’s digitization process,” he added.

FETCi Managing Director Yongchang Chang said MLFF toll systems have proven to significantly improve traffic flow, as evidenced by its success in several other Asian countries, such as Singapore.

“We are confident that this proof of concept will produce positive results and move Malaysia’s infrastructure modernization in the right direction.

“The MLFF system is an ultra-efficient and fast toll system. The system is expected to use a cloud-based toll system with no toll lanes or gates and will be able to process significantly more vehicles per hour compared to existing toll systems, ”he added.

On top of that, Chang noted that the system would also reduce fraud by eliminating loopholes that current solutions are unable to fill and are often exploited by many traffic users.

Besraya COO Wan Salwani Wan Yusoff was eagerly awaiting the implementation of the MLFF system on the Besraya Highway as the move would be welcomed by Malaysians.

“The MLFF toll system was the determining factor that distinguished a country’s traffic efficiency.

“We look forward to having one officially installed on Malaysia’s highways for the foreseeable future,” she said.

Coleraine’s traffic system “designed for one horse and cart,” says highway boss https://piazzaduomo2.com/coleraines-traffic-system-designed-for-one-horse-and-cart-says-highway-boss/ Thu, 05 Aug 2021 07:00:00 +0000 https://piazzaduomo2.com/coleraines-traffic-system-designed-for-one-horse-and-cart-says-highway-boss/ Coleraine’s circulation system has been described as being “uniquely designed for a horse and cart”.

Coleraine’s circulation system has been described as being “uniquely designed for a horse and cart”.

The comment came during a debate on the continuing problem of congestion in and around the city at the August Causeway Coast and Glens council meeting.

Independent Advisor William McCandless addressed the issue when Colin Hutchinson, Divisional Director of Roads, briefed members on DfI’s Spring 2021 program.

He cited a Belfast Telegraph report on the cost of congestion to the economy of Northern Ireland.

Coleraine’s advisor said: “I understand that since the emergence of Covid many people have had the opportunity to work from home and thereby reduce traffic at peak times.

“However, in anticipation of a return to normal, hopefully in the near future, what progress is being made, particularly with regard to traffic jams at Coleraine?

“I’m referring to the Belfast Telegraph report from February 2018, which pointed out that traffic jams on Northern Ireland’s roads cost more than £ 1.1bn. These are mainly motorists stranded in traffic during the morning and evening rush hours.

“The study was conducted by INRIX and reported that the total cost of UK congestion was £ 37.7 billion.

“I would have thought that looking at those numbers Coleraine would have had priority for some programs because in Northern Ireland Coleraine came third after Belfast and Londonderry, with traffic jams at Coleraine costing £ 38million.

“I understand that you want to dispute these numbers, however, there is no getting around that, even if you reduce those numbers by 20% or even 30%, these numbers are colossal. It is estimated that it will affect the GDP (gross domestic product) of Northern Ireland by 2.4%.

“I would like to ask what is Coleraine’s master plan, what progress has been made, what progress has been planned to relieve the city’s congestion?

“How could Coleraine hope to achieve city status if an offer was made for it when we have a traffic system that many of our residents call ‘still designed just for a horse and cart’?

“If we look at a few simple examples – Union Street. Due to the reluctance of drivers to cross to get to Brook Street, traffic builds up on Millburn and Portrush Road. Add to that when the railway line closes at Bushmills Road and it comes back to where I live on the boulevard. “

Mr McCandless said ideas were floated a few years ago including a third traffic bridge and a road from Railway Road to the recreation center to carry traffic to the ring road.

He added: “Where are these plans and are they still under investigation, will they ever come to fruition or have they been scrapped?”

“Coleraine Town Center – I understand you may need to work in tandem with DfC on this one, but the pavia on High Street is not fit for purpose. It is not suitable for dealing with heavy goods vehicles delivering to the scene and it presents serious risks of movement in a so-called pedestrian zone.

“Resident parking – it’s been requested by residents of Lower Circular Road for years and every time I ask it’s the same old story, trials are being done in Belfast and Londonderry. Why not put Coleraine on trial?

Responding to Mr McCandless, Mr Hutchinson said: ‘Regarding resident parking, the trials have been completed in Belfast and the Minister (Nichola Mallon) has committed to reviewing the results of the very complex ones.

“Once she makes a decision on this, it will hopefully expand the program to a wider audience.

“We are more than happy to work with DfC on the Pavia blocks in downtown Coleraine if there is an upgrade project. I know there was some construction around the town hall a few years ago which still looks very good.

“Regarding the traffic system in Coleraine, I live in Coleraine and I see traffic in Coleraine on a daily basis. While it can be frustrating at times, the traffic is going pretty well and the traffic progression is quite good. Even if you are sitting in a queue, it moves quite quickly.

“Having said that, you mentioned some ambitious projects. Having said that, perhaps in the past, going back at least 10 years, these are the types of plans that would be included in the sub-regional transport plan which I believe is being updated and the strategy there would be defined.

“As far as traffic jams are concerned, the big step here now is to stop putting people in cars and driving them around the city and that is part of the reason why this blue-green money is being made available for making active travel attractive in Northern Ireland, but it’s a long-term plan.We are looking at areas of congested traffic and getting better.

“We have had to deal with years and years of underinvestment and we are working with a small pot of capital and resources and delivering to the highest priorities in the region. “

PUP advisor Russell Watton agreed, adding: “We are desperate. A city of carts and horses is a good description.

“I don’t see a lot of easement and my problem is that when the new Northern Regional College is built on Union Street with 900 students and 300 employees, what happens when they start up? What the traffic will look like then because we can all see how bad it is now, it will be chaotic. “

The South Australian government turned its traffic intelligence system Addinsight to robotics firm SAGE Automation after a review recommended “immediate divestment.”

Infrastructure and Transport Minister Corey Wingard revealed the decision on Thursday, with SAGE taking care of all future developments of the software tool.

The system, developed by the then Ministry of Planning, Transport and Infrastructures in 2012, provides real-time and predictive updates of traffic movements and congestion.

To do this, it uses beacons installed on the Adelaide road network to identify the movements of Bluetooth and Wi-Fi devices.

The anonymized aggregate data is then used by the government’s Traffic Management Center to monitor and improve traffic flows. a application was also developed for public use in 2016.

Wingard said SAGE was chosen following an expression of interest in 2020 because it has “the experience and technical expertise to further improve the Addinsight offering.”

“What was originally developed for internal use is now being used by customers and road users in Australia and New Zealand – this has been a great success for South Australia,” he said. -he declares.

“However, the [Department of Infrastructure and Transport’s] the main activity is not to manage and develop a commercial software product.

Wingard said the department consulted with the Office of the Chief Entrepreneur in 2019 on “opportunities to further strengthen Addinsight.”

An external study was then commissioned, which recommended “an immediate divestment of Addinsight to maximize its attractiveness as a potential investment”.

The government said previously that continuing to develop the system to ensure it remains relevant and up to date would require a “substantial amount of taxpayers’ money”.

Under the terms of the agreement, the department will continue to have access to Addinsight’s data and will partner with SAGE to identify further opportunities to use the system in Adelaide, Wingard said.

SAGE CEO Adrian Fahey said Addinsight is already the “perfect platform” to collect, analyze and use road data to support operations, infrastructure planning and better response to events.

“Imagine a world that guarantees a reduction in the frustration felt by road users, less road signage, better planned road maintenance and reduced traffic management costs,” he said.

“Addinsight can enable future communications connectivity between vehicles and infrastructure, which will help sustain our road networks for the next generation of mobility. “

The South African government’s decision to market Addinsight comes a week after NSW scrapped plans to market the Sydney Adaptive Coordinated Traffic System (SCATS).

ZELAND – Traffic lights in the city of Zeeland will be equipped with a system that takes control of light cycles to give the green light to police and firefighters when they go to emergencies.

The city has used the Opticom system at the intersection of State Street and the I-196 commercial loop for several years, and it was enlarged last year at three other State Street intersections on Central, Main and Washington avenues.

GPS kits in emergency vehicles communicate with the system and trigger signal changes at upcoming traffic lights to stop cross traffic and give emergency vehicles green lights.

Following:System gives green light to first responders in Zeeland

The system also detects when turn signals are being used, Zeeland Fire and Rescue Chief Ross Tibbets said to predict the path of emergency vehicles.

“It works well,” Tibbets said.

This year, Zeeland will install the system at the city’s five remaining traffic lights: State and Roosevelt, State and Riley, Fairview and Riley, Riley and Washington, and Washington and Franklin.

Transport for NSW has abandoned its plan to commercialize the state-owned Sydney Adaptive Coordinated Traffic System (SCATS) and will set up a dedicated team to accelerate its development.

The major investment in the intelligent real-time traffic management system announced this week aims to sustain the critical technology almost 50 years after its introduction.

The system, which was developed by the New South Wales Department of Main Roads in the 1970s, is used to manage traffic light phases throughout much of Australia to minimize delays on the road network.

It does this by using vehicle sensors at more than 4,300 NSW intersections to adjust signals in real time to changing traffic flows and to prioritize emergency service vehicles. and public transport services.

TfNSW estimates that SCATS reduces travel times, emissions and fuel consumption by 28 percent, 15 percent and 12 percent, respectively, amounting to $ 24 million in daily economic benefits in Sydney.

While already the most widely used adaptive traffic control system in the world, having been adopted by 28 countries around the world, TfNSW planned to adopt a new business model for the system.

She approached the market with a business and financial advisor in December 2019 to oversee the marketing, which was deemed necessary to avoid “obsolescence” of SCATS.

“TfNSW seeks to implement a new business model, with a business partner to accelerate innovation and especially to perpetuate the product and the SCATS company”, indicated the tender documents at the time.

But the department has now abandoned this approach, with a new team to be established within TfNSW to accelerate SCATS development and expand its business activities.

A spokesperson said iTnews that “after further work, TfNSW has chosen to proceed with a new structure, which spans some aspects of TfNSW’s initial plan in 2019”, part of which will include “working with partners”.

The new team, which will include “technology developers, engineers and business leaders”, will aim to “build SCATS into a leading product and company in the smart city technology sector”.

The spokesperson added that a number of positions for the SCATS management team would be “announced in the near future”.

“We are working on detailed resource and partner planning as part of creating the new team,” the spokesperson said.

TfNSW Secretary Rod Sharp said now is the time to expand SCATS to capitalize on nearly 50 years of development and address what he described as a rapidly growing intelligent transport systems market.

The importance of intelligent transport systems has been highlighted in the state’s recent roadmap for future transport technologies, especially for expanding real-time data sharing capabilities.

“Adaptive technologies like SCATS can improve the lives of citizens, reduce transportation emissions and help unlock further economic growth,” said Sharp.

“This investment will accelerate the development of an even more dynamic system that will benefit drivers around the world for many years to come. “

Deputy Secretary of TFNSW’s Customer Strategy and Technology Division, Joost de Kock, said several new features are planned for SCATS to “dramatically improve the business customer experience.”

Features include better integration with third-party sensors, prediction based on machine learning, sophisticated analytics and performance reporting, and UI / UX refresh.

“We also aim to strengthen existing business relationships with customers by providing significantly superior ongoing training, collaboration and support,” he added.

“We invite any transport agency interested in testing SCATS to contact us. “

SCATS is one of TfNSW’s two main adaptive intelligent transport systems, the other being a multimodal transport management platform used for the intelligent congestion management program.

SK Telecom Co., a major South Korean telecommunications operator, said on Tuesday it would complete testing of a next-generation traffic system in Seoul by the end of the month as it seeks to accelerate efforts to develop autonomous driving technology based on its high-speed 5G networks.

The telecommunications operator has been testing the traffic system, named Cooperative-Intelligent Transport System (C-ITS), with the Seoul Metropolitan Government since early 2019 and has installed 1,735 5G sensors on the city’s main roads covering 151 kilometers for monitor traffic data.

SK Telecom has announced plans to complete the development of a platform next year that will provide the data collected from the system to shipping companies.

Using the data collected by the sensors, SK Telecom said it sent an average of 43 million notifications per day of pedestrian information to vehicles.

SK Telecom said it has also created a high-precision map capable of providing traffic information by installing advanced 5G driver assistance systems on 1,600 buses and 100 taxis that travel around the city.

The technology is able to recognize real-time road traffic information, in which the data is analyzed by artificial intelligence technology to power autonomous vehicles. (Yonhap)
