Enabling Public Transport Mobility

back to all solutions

Intelligent Transport Systems

Emission and congestion problems are increasingly causing persistent economic losses and other social harms in numerous populated areas worldwide. Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) are complex innovative solutions for urban traffic management, which successfully address such problems and create a transport environment which is safer, cost optimized, more sustainable and more ecologically oriented.

A well-developed and integrated ITS applies various information and communication technologies to all modes of passenger transport, and positive results could be easily observed immediately after implementation. Such system enables authorities, operators and urban travelers to make better informed and coordinated decisions.

SMART PUBLIC TRANSPORT VEHICLES

VIASAT TECHNOLOGY’S URBAN MOBILITY SOLUTIONS INCLUDE

AUTOMATIC VEHICLE LOCATION (AVL)

Solutions for control by municipalities over the mass transport operators and optimization of the urban transport schemes (these include mainly GPS tracking, control, and optimization of mass transport schedules, driver assistance services, passenger counting, electronic ticketing, etc.).

VARIABLE MESSAGE SIGN (VMS) SYSTEMS

Electronic displays providing traffic information for various situations, including congestions, incidents, construction, road closures, etc.

PUBLIC TRANSPORT INFORMATION AND PRIORITY SYSTEM (PTIPS)

Effective tool for forecasting public transport arrival time at traffic signals. If running behind schedule, the public transportation vehicle can be given priority by altering the timing of the traffic signals. Enhances reliability and provides travelers and operators with real-time information on schedules and vehicle locations.

SMART PAYMENT SYSTEMS

Harmonization of different types of payments on the same platform, using smart cards. Individuals will be able to pay for parking, bus and train fares, as well as tolls, using a single smart card.

CITY SURVEILLANCE MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS

Detection and monitoring solutions helping traffic and public transportation authorities manage traffic flows efficiently. Ability to detect incidents, collect traffic data, and ensure traffic safety.

AUTOMATIC FARE COLLECTION SYSTEMS (AFC)

Smart electronic payment method, allowing travelers to access various transportation modes such as buses, metro, rail transport, taxi, parking etc. Allows for automated complex fare structures, including zones, distance, time, border crossings and different means of transportation (e.g. bus-train combination).

REAL TIME PASSENGER INFORMATION SYSTEMS (RTPI)

Information displays at bus-stops and in vehicles, voice announcements, infotainment and internet services in the vehicles, etc.

ADAPTIVE TRAFFIC SIGNAL CONTROL SYSTEMS (ATSC)

Dynamic and efficient method for optimizing traffic flow, reducing congestions & emissions, and improving schedule reliability. The timing of a traffic signal is continuously adjusted based on the changing arrival patterns of vehicles at an intersection.

CAR PARK MANAGEMENT AND GUIDANCE SYSTEMS (CPGS)

Assisting vehicles to less congested areas, typically using VMS. Significantly reduces urban congestions and improves traffic flow.
