Activity

The region of Munich

The objective of this activity is to deploy interactive traffic management in the Munich region, focused on the highway network. In the Munich region, different type of traffic data will directly be exchanged between de Road Authority and participating service providers. The objective of this activity is to develop insight on how  traffic management centres and service providers can exchange data, what tooling is needed for that and how this can be used to enhance traffic services to road users. This will be done, based on a selection of Use Cases and the subsequent pilot design. The Munich pilot is important as it is based on direct, one-way, communication from road authority to services providers.

NO INTERMEDIARY ROLE EXPECTED: DIRECT COMMUNICATION BETWEEN ROAD AUTHORITY AND SERVICE PROVIDERS

ONE WAY COMMUNICATION

MORE THAN 1.000 BETA USERS

Testing direct, one-way communication

The organisation of this pilot differs significantly from the Danish and Dutch sites because of the absence of a dedicated intermediary role, allowing direct communication between the road authority and the back offices. So, instead of two-way communication, in this pilot the feasibility of a so-called one-to-many data exchange concept is tested as  a first step towards interactive traffic management. Next to this,  service providers will be able to develop new services or enhance exhisting services based on traffic (management) information originating from the traffic management centre,  using the data exchange  tooling that will be developed within SOCRATES2.0.

Comparing the benefits between one way and two way data exchange

It is an important pilot as it answers the question if traffic management information will  lead to new or enhanced mobile/in-car services. And it will demonstrate if a on-to-many data exchange concept is feasible and workable  and can be considered as a first step towards  The deployment of interactive traffic management.

Organisation

Although the Bavarian road authority is not a formal beneficiary, the provision of traffic management data is formally agreed via the Bavarian road authority supporting letter. BMW leads this activity, provides pilot coordination, monitors progress of all tasks, organises the system integration tests and the evaluations according to the agreed plan. Based on the common designs and specifications (see Framework design) all partners (public and private) can work in isolation to modify or extend their systems and services. The coordinator reports the progress of the activity to the project management team.
