Intelligent Trafficmanagement and IT-solutions

ITS-solutions can make life easier. They can e.g. enlarge the capacity of the road network and make vital data collection easier. But the right IT-solutions demands a firm hand, from tendering to implementation.

The different types of IT and ITS projects Tetraplan is involved in are:

Traffic management
In situations where resources are scarce and environmental requirements prohibit the construction of new roads, ITS solutions can provide excess capacity. Tetraplan has assisted the Danish Road Directorate in developing traffic information systems for RDS/TMC and developed models for dynamic and on-board information to assist drivers in choosing the best travel routes.

Digital road network
A digital road-network provides a safe and solid base for a wide range of tasks. However the different digital maps are not interchangeable and have individual strongholds and weak spots. Choosing the right digital map, can make or break the project. Tetraplan uses digital maps in our own transport models and IT-tools, and have a lot of experience in assessing the capabilities and use of digital maps.

GPS for data collection
The GPS-technology is both an easy and cheap mean for collecting large quantities of traffic data. Both for tracking, assessing speed flows relations depending on place and time of day, and in combination with knowledge of the purpose of the trip. Tetraplan has vast experience in using GPS tracking in innovative solution. An example is mapping cyclists' choice of routes and travel speed. And for mapping bus flows to asses the effects of new stopping.

IT tools for transport planning
Tetraplan develops a number of IT-tools based on digital maps and GIS-platforms: MapNoise, a state-of-the-art noise model that both can be used in mapping traffic noise (based on where people live and work), and to asses the effect of introducing noise abating initiatives. And TMM, a traffic and environmental model geared for municipalities. Tetraplan has also experience in developing interactive web based tools e.g. a website assessing energy consumption for transport based on real travel pattern and transport modes for persons. Tetraplan is also involved in the development of a new Danish transport model for both freight and passenger traffic.

Tendering process
The tendering process for IT-systems can be a jungle. A solid tendering document gives the best bids. And in the end the best result. Tetraplan has solid experience in managing the tendering process - in all its phases, including describing the detailed technical specification of the product or service to be provided.
