  9. 9. “Some problems are so complex that you have to be highly intelligent and well informed just to be undecided about them.” Laurence J.Peter THINK UP
  10. 10. Definition ITS «ITS integrate telecommunications, electronics and information technologies with transport engineering in order to plan, design, operate, maintain and manage transport systems. This integration aims to improve safety, security, quality and efficiency of the transport systems for passengers and freight, optimising the use of natural resources and respecting the environment. To achieve such aims, ITS require procedures, systems and devices to allow the collection, communication, analysis and distribution of information and data among moving subjects, the transport infrastructure and information technology applications." Specification about related terms: as far as ITS deal with information technologies and mobility of people, may also be defined as “Infomobility”; it may involve road transport or any other mode as well as their interactions.» [ITS-EduNet, 2009]
  11. 11. Worldwide context ITS Urbanisation Dense population areas PollutionGrowth of accidents in developing countries If the whole world had the Paris population density, it would fit within this area.
  12. 12. Objectives ITS To minimise the waste of money and resources To prevent harmful environmental consequences To reduce the painpoints related to travel Monitoring Timely information Risk reduction Emergency response Reliability Controlled travel time Punctuality Cognisant decisions Energy use Trip planning Productivity Travel cost Informed logistics SAFETY AND SECURITY QUALITY EFFICIENCY
  13. 13. Think up’s companies have outstanding integrated solution to manage the projects related to the transportation systems Value proposition ITS Traveller information Electronic financial transactions Incident and Hazard response Demand management Road management Commercial vehicle management Public transportation management
  14. 14. Scenario TRAFFIC MONITORING AND CONTROL + Big logistic problem = Development of infrastructures is limited (cost for building and maintenance, space saturation, period for completion) Increase urbanisation of the world Black-oil dependence New roads imply higher public expense also for maintenance Manage the increase of the amount of traffic or improving quality of service. Reduce congestion and accidents: how, investing in innovation on existing infrastructures? Intense mobility request a new road
  15. 15. Scenario TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT Better resource exploitation = By utilising solutions coming from the ICT field, we can inform people about congestions, alter them, suggest alternative directions, charging possibilities and means, manage limited resources better, allocating them dynamically. Being a complex problem, there are sometimes no right or wrong solutions, but only tailored good or suitable solutions. + Public transportation Underground Personal car 8Km queue in the highway 7:35 am TRAFFIC JAM 58 min 40 min 22 min Time to reach destination
  16. 16. Fields of intervention ITS To increase the quality of mobility by providing information, allowing the choice of efficient routes for drivers or public transport users: Information to personal devices or to vehicle devices Information through DSRC and VMS Transmit the travel information to the Internet, mobile, phone, radio, tv and/or another vehicle. DSRC may send information when vehicles are passing by a roadside antenna. VMS (variable message signs) provide useful information. IVC makes it more continuous. Traveller information Information through kiosks Kiosks placed in stations provide information about public transport to users.
  17. 17. Fields of intervention ITS To improve real-time traffic management, data analysis and route planning through real-time traffic information (routes, congestions, restriction, parking availability and incidents): Preparation for management: traffic surveillance Traffic control & traffic regulation enforcement Incident management and collision avoidance On-site data collection by road-side unit (information acquired at a fixed point) and mobile or probe car (information acquired using mobile and specially equipped vehicles). VMS (variable message sign) for conveying real-time information on congestion, restriction and parking availability. A C.A:S.is a system of sensors that is placed within a car to warn its driver of any dangers that may lie ahead on the road. In extreme conditions it can intervene. Traffic information
  18. 18. Fields of intervention ITS To manage urban areas, leading to less congestion and less environmental impact, and to the increase of safety and certainty of travel: Public transportation Reducing demand by charging Electronic financial transactions Provides information on public transport and parking spaces at stations. Pricing using electronic transactions to reduce demand. Improved gate throughput by allowing easier and faster toll payments. The system works for collecting fees either for entry (or exit) roads as mileage-based fee collection with GPS or tachograph. Demand management
  19. 19. To improve the quality of public services and to increase the efficiency in logistics and in security. Bus location and bus signal priority Cargo/vehicle tracking Monitoring/operating recordings Bus location conveys the location of public transports to the users. Bus signal priority is a system in which traffic signals adapt their phase to give priority to buses. Monitors truck location and cargo to enhance logistics operations, increasing efficiency for each trip and the overall delivery system. Monitors and records operation data. Leads to better driver and vehicle management, increase in security and better compliance with regulations and standards. Public transport & commercial vehicle management Fields of intervention ITS
  20. 20. Wicked problem Transportation issues Transportation planning is a wicked problem, therefore: 1.You don’t understand the problem until you have developed a solution; 2.Solutions are not right or wrong, rather only better or worse; It means that Transportation problem can be resolved only by a taylor approach based on flexibility and care for details. The previous cases can teach very few. Gather data Formulate solution Implement solution Tame problem Wicked problem Problem Solution Analyse data 3. Every problem is essentially unique and novel, so you cannot copy another city’s or country’s solution; 4. Every solution is a ‘one-shot operation’, so you will not be able to reuse your own solution.
  21. 21. The proposal ITS offering Think Up can provide tailored solutions combining the right mix of strategic approach and disruptive technologies. Think Up does not need to sell a unique technology (as big players need), but it can build a structured framework that can fit to client’s needs. Think Up can suggest the best systemic solution. Think Up provides a “Solution Manager” to manage all resources and to represent the “single point of contact” for Customers.
