Kapsch TrafficCom implements intelligent mobility management solution in Valladolid.
The new system allows citizens to plan their journeys efficiently thanks to accessible recent information.
Vienna/Madrid, May 27, 2019 – The city of Valladolid (Spain) has taken the first steps towards becoming a smart city. Kapsch TrafficCom implemented an intelligent mobility solution, which allows different transportation agencies to easily integrate their data and thus offering citizens a single information point on schedules or incidents of various means of transport.
This projects’ objective is to offer an integrated traffic control system including parking management and public transport. Citizens will receive reliable information about transport in their city from one single source on the municipal website. Additionally, travelers will find information on variable message panels that the town has installed for this purpose.
Based on Kapsch's EcoTrafiXTM software, the system allows users to plan their journeys more rationally and efficiently. The system analyses information and status of the different public transport means in order to propose effective routes and organize traffic in real time. The system optimizes the mobility conditions of collective transport, reduces traffic congestion in the city center, and thus guarantees that people have access to mobility in the best conditions.
For the Valladolid City Council's Mobility Department the solution works as a "system of systems", whose main functionalities include event and incident management, asset management, data analysis, report generation, as well as the availability of data on the municipal website.
This project is part of a strategy that the Valladolid City Council launched in 2015. Kapsch solutions for intelligent mobility are deployed all over Spain in cities such as Madrid, Malaga, Bilbao, Vitoria, Castellón, Donostia, La Coruña, Palencia and Huelva.
