  • 1. STOP Transportation Made Simple How Xerox innovations are pioneering smarter, more efficient transportation. Congestion cost U.S. commuters more than $100 billion in 2010, nearly $750 for every commuter in the U.S. *** Electronic Toll Collec- tion (ETC) has evolved to support the digital age with technologies that safeguard revenues, provide an improved driver experience through increased mobility, safety, convenience and even support for a ‘greener’ world by reducing pollution. Tolling AET (All Electric Tolling) The next generation of electronic tolling is taking shape in states like Maryland, where some highways do not have any tollbooths and tolls are collected at highway speeds via overhead gantries. HOT Lanes High Occupancy Toll (HOT) lanes like the ones in development in Los Angeles help people bypass traffic gridlock. Through dynamic pricing, HOT lanes maintain a predetermined speed by adjusting the cost to drive in the lane based on demand. HOT lanes also help governments expand travel capacity on a given corridor without building more freeways. For more than 40 years, Xerox has worked hand-in-hand with transportation clients in more than 35 countries helping shape the way we move around the world. From fare collection to toll solutions, back-office processing to infrastructure installation, Xerox provides systems and services that create smarter, simplified transportation. Airport Check-in New airport parking management systems use automated license plate recognition to match a vehicle to the traveler in order to display real-time, passenger-specific flight information when arriving to the airport parking lot. Pay-by-Phone or Card Modern meters allow drivers to pay by credit/debit card or by smartphone, which allows drivers to add additional time from a remote location. Mobile Parking Apps New apps allow drivers to pinpoint exactly where an open parking space is through up-to-the-minute data pulled from parking meter sensors. Parking Upto30percentoftrafficiscaused by cars circling around the block looking for parking. This form of "cruising" for a parking space is a leading cause of city congestion.* Smarter parking services make it easier for people to find and pay for parking, which keeps traffic flowing, reduces time spent (and fuel consumed) searching for on-street parking and creates more frequent turnover for local businesses. School Bus Cameras Xerox’s CrossSafe system uses cameras mounted on school buses to record drivers who illegally pass a stopped school bus. School bus camera technology is supported by 66 percent of U.S. adults according to a 2011 study.** Source: *Shoup, D.

BR2427 Open Fare Commuters in cities like Philadelphia seamlessly pay and travel throughout the entire regional rail, subway and bus network with the tap or wave of a “contact- less” credit or debit card, or even a smart- phone. One of the many challenges public transit providers face today is improving passenger safety services while reducing operating costs. Public Transport Xerox helps "make sense" of data already being collected to help agencies better understand and improve transit operations. Using advanced analytics and data visualization to determine how people are using mass transit – and why – city transportation manag- ers can decipher “big data” to gain the insights needed to make route, resource and capacity adjustments. Data Analytics Heat Maps Using a "city dashboard," city transporta- tion managers can view heat maps that visually illustrate levels of transportation activity on varying services at any given moment in any part of a city in order to make corrective adjustments in real-time. Fleet Management Dispatch and tracking systems create computerized maps for dispatchers to see precise locations of vehicles so dispatchers can make real-time adjustments, such as adding additional bus service and creating detours when necessary. Dynamic Pricing Algorithms Complex Xerox algorithms are applied to parking and tolling to dynamically adjust prices at any given time, helping keep traf- fic flowing and reducing congestion.
