Interactive Session followed by Cocktail at European Commission Stand, Monday 23rd April at 18:45
Viajeo has invited to attend an interactive session at the European Commission stand during which users had the chance to experience a demonstration organised by Viajeo Athens demo site leader INFOTRIP.
Traffic information (flows, road incidents etc) based on processed real-time traffic information taken from fixed measurements points (Athens Traffic Management Center) and FCD (Floating Car Data) has been shown at the interactive session. This service was presented on a map via web. The user could observe on a map which roads are congested or less congested and possible traffic alerts that may happen at that time. The aforementioned service has been shown also via mobile application.
Special Session "Transport planning and traffic information in cities", Thursday 26 April 2012, 13:45 - 15:00
The TRA 2012 Conference was pleased to host the Viajeo Special Session "Transport planning and traffic information in cities" under the theme Urban Mobility.
Through the Special Session we had learned how in Athens, VIAJEO has implemented a comprehensive database that integrates floating vehicle, fixed measurements and historical traffic data which have led to the development of a dynamic traffic assignment model in order to support efficient transport management and planning, deliver real time traffic information, provide adaptable data exchange and services interfaces to connect a variety of entities needed for the mobility services. The Special Session targeted National European and International bodies, Federations, Associations, Projects, Initiatives, Professional Institutions and Unions.
