From where we started
Mobility is a key issue in planning policies because it has significant impact on the economy, the environment and society as a whole. More efficient systems for mobility management are crucial for sustainable and lasting development of territory, economy and social life.
The traffic control systems have so far developed a function of a mass mobility, oriented individual use of the vehicles, with the adoption of dedicated and centralized infrastructure, designed with the aim of managing the traffic and its problems (accidents, congestion).
The heart of these systems is a Traffic Control Center (TCC-Traffic Control Center), which collects, processes and manages the information obtained on the street, mainly in closed systems, how a motorway can be.
The technological evolution, the changes brought by digital culture, the changes of the needs and expectations of users are changing in a progressive but irreversible paradigm of mobility and the systems required to support it. Mobility in the near future will be heavily geared to meet the mobility needs of individual users, adopting multi-modal approaches (not only based on the use of the car), ecological, dynamic and highly customizable. The future of mobility management systems will have to operate in real time, dynamically acquire and integrate information from a diverse set of sources and systems (Intelligent Transport Systems-ITS) that will operate intelligently and pervasive, especially in urban areas.
The project aims to develop a new platform for integrated mobility management (Integrated Mobility Management Platform-IMMP).
This platform must be characterized by modularity, ease of management, economic efficiency and ability to adapt to different application contexts (motorway and urban).
The project “TCC2IMMP – Traffic Control Center To Integrated Mobility Management Platform” is financed by Regione Veneto with Programma Operativo F.S.E. – 2014-2020 – (P.O.R.) Fondo Sociale Europeo and developed with the University of Padova thanks to Post-doc Research Fellow Gregorio Gecchele specialized in Transport Engineering.
