STADIUM (Smart Transport Applications Designed for large events with Impacts on Urban Mobility) is a EU funded project, coordinated by ISIS, aimed at improving the performance of public transport services and systems made available for large events hosted by big cities. Beyond other activities, the project demonstrates Intelligent Transport System pilot applications at three major events: the South Africa World Cup (2010), the India Commonwealth Games (October 2010) and the London Olympics (2012). The project is funded by the 7th Framework Programme for Research and Development of the European Commission's DG Research.
The STADIUM Delhi Demonstrator is deployed and tested during the XIX Commonwealth Games (CWG 2010, Delhi). Based on existing infrastructures to manage Urban Transport needs in Delhi, the demonstrator is aimed to show an innovative ITS application providing the service planning, the GPS real time monitoring and the real time passenger information of Public Transport services, in particular Bus transport and its integration with feeder services consisting of Para-transit.
The Delhi Demonstrator is led by Thetis, an expert organization for ITS systems based in Italy, with the support of the Mobility Agency of Rome that provides mainly the urban mobility services for the city of Rome (Italy) along with Consortium Partners in India namely Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM), Ashok Leyland and Delhi Integrated Multi-Modal Transit System (DIMTS). In order to evaluate the benefits of the solution, Focus Groups representing the Operators and the Users are involved, such as Y4PT (Youth for Public Transport) a worldwide youth organization based in Brussels under UITP (International Public Transport Union).
The demonstration system is being presented during a Workshop on 24th September 2010 at Hotel Taj Palace, New Delhi.
The demo system is composed of:
• A central computer system to plan the public transport services and display real time the position of vehicles and status of service, besides organizing real time passenger information dissemination
• A bus equipped with advanced onboard computer, driver terminal, passenger counters, video surveillance, audio and visual displays for passenger information and announcements
• Taxi and paratransit vehicles equipped with onboard low cost mobile devices
• Mobile phones to display public transport service information real time, integrating data from the metro service and bus service.
