Smart Work Zones – New ways of communicating with road users and managing work sites

  1. 1. Smart Work Zones Henry Okraglik Justin Lu Scott Benjamin Tomislav Dabic
  2. 2. • VicRoads’ Corporate Vision and Values - Journeys, Well-being, Productivity Background 2
  3. 3. • Make travelling on the VicRoads’ network faster & safer for all road users - By providing road users with accurate, relevant, contextualised real time information - Delivered through the most convenient media channel for each user – personalised messaging - Variable Message Signs - Social Media (Facebook, Twitter) - Web, SMS, Text to Mobile Smart Work Zones - Objectives 3
  4. 4. • Continuously collects & validates real time traffic & incident related data - From disparate multiple roadside traffic devices that measure: - speed, volume, occupancy & classification • Transmits this data in real time from these devices to a scalable, secure, robust Internet of Things (IoT) platform Smart Work Zones – What it does 4
  5. 5. • Applies defined business rules based on this data to determine which real time information messages should be broadcast to whom – all from within the IoT platform • Broadcasts real time relevant messages via multiple channels to road users both prior & during their journeys - Messages can include alternative routing, warnings, alerts, time to destination, speed & travel time Smart Work Zones – What it does 5
  6. 6. Smart Work Zones – network 6
  7. 7. • Fully-automated; • Real time; • Reliable and credible; • Portable i.e. Non pavement intrusive; • Open access; and • Able to integrate with permanent ITS infrastructure. Smart Work Zones – Key Principles 7
  8. 8. • Pilot project on the CityLink Tullamarine Widening Project • Intention to roll out on other VicRoads Projects statewide Smart Work Zones – where? 8
  9. 9. Smart Work Zones – the Project Background 9
  10. 10. • Technology & vendor agnostic - Mix & match technologies of choice: old, new & future - Fosters & supports innovation - Breaks cycle of single vendor dependence & lock-in - Enables new market entrants & new technologies - Handles multiple disparate communications protocols • Highly scalable & robust - Many thousands of devices, many millions of messages – all in real time • Highly flexible - Easily integrated with other software applications - E.g. Geospatial, Analytics, visualisation, asset management Smart Work Zones – Technological Benefits and Features 10
  11. 11. Smart Work Zones – network 11
  12. 12. Smart Work Zones – who & how 12 • VicRoads - ITS & Traffic Engineering - Capital funding - Project management - Leadership - Operational co-ordination • WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff - ITS & Traffic Engineering - Software Development - Systems integration - Systems support • Telstra - Cumulocity – IoT Platform licences & support - Whispir – communications/messaging platform licences & support - Netcomm 6200 modems – with Cumulocity agents on-board - Leadership - M2M SIM cards & data plans
  13. 13. • Relationship between WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff & VicRoads built on trust & respect • Recognition & acceptance that innovation necessitates risk & the acceptance of the possibility of failure • Traditional vendor procurement models not appropriate Smart Work Zones – innovation through partnership 13
  14. 14. Smart Work Zones – innovation through partnership 14 • Iterative approach to development - Identify & eliminate technical risks early - Clearly defined stages - Proof-of-Concept, Pilot, phased up- scale roll out - ‘go’ ‘no-go’ approach at each stage - Learn and improve Customer Needs Minimum Viable Product Feedback & Learnings Improvement
  15. 15. • Short Term - Expand across VicRoads’ major projects • Medium Term - Engage and collaborate with other road authorities • Long Term - Leverage capabilities from all parties to expand globally Smart Work Zones – future 15
