Integrated monitoring and control of traffic zones
Sitraffic Concert collects traffic data from a wide variety of sources and processes them to create a solid basis for implementing strategic measures, which can be initiated either manually or automatically. The system allows the integrated monitoring and control of different traffic zones such as city or town center, urban freeway or entire county.
Modules for integrated traffic managementThe Siemens Sitraffic Concert traffic center is the solution of choice for strategic coordination of traffic control and traffic information systems. As Sitraffic Concert consists of smoothly integratable modules, you are free to choose only those modules that you need for your traffic management tasks.
Sitraffic Concert. The modules
The strategy management module serves to define the general control strategies governing the operation of the different systems and processes. The tool retrieves all measured values, status information, operational messages as well as weather and environmental data available in the system, matches them with user-definable threshold values and assigns specific time constraints – as the basis for effective traffic interventions.
To round out the data base, additional traffic-related information can be entered, edited and completed via a traffic information editing workstation. The tool allows, for instance, to combine traffic news generated on the basis of detector data with additional information provided by the police or information on other relevant factors such as any major events planned. The data entered via the traffic information editing workstation is then taken into account when defining suitable traffic management measures.
New technologies and processes enable direct recording of route-related data, in particular travel times. Such data are often a much more precise indicator of congestion and traffic disruptions than data from local detectors. The fusion of data from different sources helps enhance overall data quality in terms of completeness, accuracy and updating frequency – for optimized traffic control, traffic guidance and traffic information. For this purpose, Siemens is developing requirements-based, tailored solutions in the scope of current projects.
There are a large number of sources providing all kinds of traffic data, but up to now these data could not be used in a holistic way. The IQ-Traffic module now makes it possible to combine real-time and historical data as well as environmental data on a single platform, enabling integrated data analysis and the derivation of recommendations for efficient traffic planning. A wide range of quality and impact analyses allow the evaluation and comparison of the traffic management decisions that have been taken.
The freeway management module allows the integration of graphical representations of roadway section and network control systems as well as tunnel control equipment. This allows targeted interventions to harmonize speeds and make freeway traffic flow more evenly. The result: significantly fewer accidents.
