ITS

ITS opportunities in Indian Market

The intelligent transportation system is about improving mobility, safety and revenue collection on city road network and highways with the help of information technology, computers, telecommunication and electronics (ICTE). All Smart Cities invariably use Intelligent Traffic Management Systems (ITMS) for improving mobility, enforcing traffic rules, identifying incidents, disseminating information, enhancing pedestrian safety, prioritizing emergency service vehicles at signalized intersections, better ...

Maha Metro: The Digital Twins

Since Metro project operations span for 30 to 35 years, Maha Metro has taken a proactive step well in advance during the construction stage, and defined a comprehensive solution to extend the information gathered during the construction phase A recent survey reported that infrastructure projects in India face nearly 20% cost overrun and 50-60% time overrun. Specifically, projects like Metro ...

Chennai Metro: Being Digital

With BIM-based digital platform, Chennai Metro Rail will achieve enhanced construction quality, reduction in expenditures, provide a comprehensive understanding of the project design and optimised operational efficiencies Project Management has always been a challenge in India which is evident with the visible delay in the completion of numerous mega projects. Quality and safety have also been major issues. These challenges ...

ITMS to Solve Mumbai’s Traffic Woes

The Maharashtra state cabinet recently approved Rs 891Cr to implement Intelligent Traffic Management System project to streamline vehicular movement on the metropolis’ roads. TrafficInfraTech looks at the project, its implementation and, how the system will benefit the maximum city. The Traffic Index 2018 published by Amsterdambased location technology specialist TomTom recently ranked Mumbai as the most traffic-congested city in the ...

Physical Internet

Physical Internet’ by itself is not a technology – it is an innovative concept making use of the emerging technologies like Internet of Things (IoT), Cyber Physical Systems (CPS), Robotics, Augmented Reality (AR), Artificial intelligence, Advanced Analytics Algorithm, Big Data Analysis, etc. and, the concept of Digital Internet for moving physical objects from one place to another in a faster ...

Simplifying Transportation in India

India has a massive road network and is arguably the nation with the largest road network in the world. At 1.70 km of roads per square kilometer of land, the quantitative density of India’s road network is higher than that of Japan and the United States and far higher than that of China, Brazil or Russia. Rapid vehicular growth partnered ...

The Driven Hour

It’s time to get more realistic about Connected Cars and the volume of data that they will generate. This paper by Joel Obstfeld Distinguished Engineer, Chief Technology & Architecture Office, Cisco and Mark Grayson, Distinguished Engineer, Chief Technology & Architecture Office, Cisco examines today’s Connected Cars and looks forward to the next generation of vehicles with a focus on the ...

Traffic Incident Management & Trauma Care

When an accident occurs, congestion quickly builds up and chances of a secondary incident increase. The sooner incidents are detected, the sooner safety personnel can respond to the incident and clear it from the roads thereby allowing traffic lanes to re-open and traffic to return to normal conditions. The system assists with creating a safe work zone with proper signage ...

ITS for Enforcement of Traffic Rules & Regulations

A key enabler for TM and ITS is the Traffic control center. When the number of operational tasks increases, or the size and complexity of instruments & scenarios increases, TMC could become necessary. Here, data is collected, analyzed and combined with other operational & control concepts to manage the complex transport network. It is the control entre for communicating transportation-related ...

Standardised Common Service Layer in IoT Applications

The debate regarding IoT and ITS have been going on for ages. IoT and ITS  have largely evolved as two separate streams within both standards and industry initiatives. Today, as most of the cars have sensors, microcomputers and communication devices fitted into them, IoT has become deeply rooted in ITS – in particular cooperative and connected automated mobility – to give ...
