Kapsch TrafficCom presents solutions for smart roads at the IBTTA International Summit

Rome, October 16, 2017 – Kapsch TrafficCom will participate at this year´s IBTTA International Summit in Rome from 15 to 17 October. Kapsch experts will discuss the benefits of multi-lane free-flow systems. They will focus on smoother traffic flow, mitigation of environmental impacts and reduction of operative costs. They will also consider an innovative solution for speed control that dramatically diminishes the number of accidents.

 A key highlight will be the company’s multi-lane free-flow (MLFF) tolling solution. This allows the application of flexible fees adapted to the specific time of day, which achieves a more efficient implementation and lower operational costs for operators. Driver journeys will become more convenient through the integration of smartphones in MLFF tolling systems. This will offer mobile tolling services, therefore making driver journeys more convenient. The corresponding app offers additional services ranging from traffic congestion warnings, multi-modal routing or traffic-related payments to individualized services for toll road users.

Another highlight at IBTTA will be an on-board unit rental service covering most of the European motorways, thereby paving the way for the European Electronic Tolling Services. Based on this service, Kapsch will strengthen its position as an international Toll Service Provider.

In addition to these two major presentations, will be three more solutions for improving safety, security and mobility, such as the V2X (vehicle to vehicle and vehicle to infrastructure). Based on so-called cooperative communication systems, vehicles and infrastructure systems are interconnected with each other. Vehicles can warn each other about accidents, breakdowns or bad weather and can send this additional data to traffic management centres which implement traffic control measures such as dynamically regulated speed limits.

WIM (Weigh-in-Motion) provides operators with a solution to control overloaded vehicles at full speed without any disruption in traffic flow. Kapsch Sicura, a section speed control system that monitors the average speed, helps to increase road safety and reduce the number of accidents.

Finally IMS (Integrated mobility services) allows cities, mobility service providers such as public transport-, MaaS- (Mobility-as-a-Service)* or tolling operators to offer optimized mobility packages.
