Orchestrated Connected Corridors

For highway and city authorities around the world, our unique capability to deliver end-to-end Orchestrated Connected Corridors (OCCs) is the key to improving road safety and delivering advanced traffic management solutions.

To make roadways safer and greener, and to improve traffic flow, many authorities around the world are beginning to test and implement Orchestrated Connected Corridor (OCC) solutions.

By linking Connected Vehicles with advanced data collection and processing platforms at the network edge and in the cloud, Kapsch OCCs provide real-time traffic management capabilities and insights that support an enormous range of innovative safety and traffic mobility use cases.

We make it possible, for example, to improve safety on both urban and interurban routes by supporting real-time safety applications such as Co-operative Automated Vehicles (CAV), and by communicating key safety information and warnings to drivers in their vehicles. We can also use real-time traffic data from OCCs to support cross-domain traffic, tolling, and demand management applications that reduce congestion and emissions from ‘stop-start’ traffic.

Key benefits of Kapsch Orchestrated Connected Corridors

  • Traffic management and planning becomes more sophisticated
    We deliver seamless integration with systems to improve traffic management, including dynamic traffic rerouting in the event of congestion or road incidents, traffic light timing adjustments for ‘green wave’ driving, and dynamic charging during peak and off-peak times.
  • Road safety is improved for Vulnerable Road Users (VRUs) 
    Sophisticated sensor platforms enable our OCCs to identify VRU such as pedestrians, cyclists, and moped riders. This information is then communicated with drivers which raises the general level of awareness of vulnerable people in the road.
  • In-vehicle signage and alerts improve mobility
    Information from our OCC is communicated to drivers in their vehicles, help to reduce travel delays. This is particularly important when roadway and traffic conditions change quickly, or where planned or unplanned traffic events occur frequently, or when authorities implement dynamic speed limits depending on the traffic load.
  • Road safety is improved for drivers 
    Our OCCs give drivers advanced warning of potential hazards in the road ahead – either using roadside signage, or in-vehicle messaging to dashboard systems.
  • Congestion charging and low-emissions zones are fully supported
    Our OCCs use machine-learning-driven image processing to provide granular data on vehicles and their locations, enabling them to support a wide range of congestion and emissions reduction initiatives. This is often a key driver for deployment, especially in cities looking to reduce congestion and emissions from stop-start traffic on their roadways.
  • Our OCCs create new commercial opportunities for traffic authorities
    These include support for dynamic charging based on congestion levels or charging for specific lanes at specific times of day, or during peak times. 

Our idea is to use new and existing technology to provide effective 'change levers' to traffic operators, improving the transport network and the surrounding environment for all traffic participants.

A unique, end-to-end OCC solution

Kapsch TrafficCom is uniquely able to deploy OCC solutions from end-to-end. As a single point of contact and access for Connected Vehicle infrastructure, data and analytics platforms and services, we help authorities to minimize the time and risks associated with these complex projects.

  • We have unique road traffic management knowledge and experience
    For decades, Kapsch TrafficCom has been delivering solutions for roadside infrastructure, traffic management, tolling, and related projects. This multi-domain experience and expertise allows us to work with our customers and prospects to understand the unique traffic safety and management challenges of their roadways, and to create OCC solutions that deliver the best outcomes for both authorities and road users.
  • Our solution includes end-to-end Connected Vehicle technology
    For greenfield rollouts, we can help authorities select, deploy, and integrate the most appropriate OCC solutions from the outset based on defined objectives. In the case of brownfield deployments, we help to maximize the lifecycle and ROI of existing roadside infrastructure, including cameras and sensor fleets, by integrating them seamlessly into Kapsch's data analytics and traffic management platforms and extending with connectivity to vehicles.
  • We support the development of new Connected Vehicle technologies and standards
    The Connected Vehicle market is characterized by rapid progress in terms of technology, communication protocols, and standards. We help authorities to navigate all current and future changes, helping them embrace technologies including the new cellular V2X (C-V2X) communications protocol and 5G.

Kapsch Orchestrated Connected Corridors in action

Around the world, we are supporting authorities as they deploy OCC solutions to improve road safety, enhance driver experiences, and reduce congestion and emissions.

Vienna - Skyline, Austria

Austria: a national initiative to enhance safety

Kapsch has been working with ASFINAG, the organization that builds and maintains Austria’s highways, to develop and implement a nationwide and city-based Connected Vehicle deployment to improve road safety. With timely warnings of roadworks, obstacles, congestion, authorities are able to further their goal of ‘zero accident’ roadways.


USA: delivering the ‘Smart Columbus Connected Corridor project for Ohio

This project, which started in 2016, aims to increase transportation mobility, safety, and efficiency for residents in the city of Columbus, Ohio. Kapsch led the creation of a Connected Vehicle Environment (CVE) which includes 100 roadside units which collect data at intersections along the key corridors in the city. By providing information such as traffic signal status, speed limits, and other alerts to drivers in their vehicles, Columbus’ CVE is improving safety for road users. Increased driver awareness of potential hazards and speed limits outside schools is also reducing accident risks. Finally, the CVE is improving traffic flow and corridor mobility by optimizing signalling and reducing start-stop traffic.

Melbourne (Australia)

Australia: a Connected Corridor solution within the Australian Integrated Multimodal EcoSystem (AIMES) zone in Melbourne

Working with the University of Melbourne, Kapsch TrafficCom has deployed the AIMES Connected Corridor end-to-end solution, including maintenance and support services. The solution is helping the city of Melbourne to increase the safety of drivers, cyclists and pedestrians based on enhancing awareness of safety risks in the area. The ability to spot and sanction traffic violations also promises to change and improve driving on the city’s streets, further helping to reduce accident risks and, potentially, providing a new revenue stream for the city.

The industry’s most extensive traffic management portfolio

Our solutions push the boundaries of what is possible not only in terms of managing the flow of traffic but also by changing the mobility behaviour of people who live and travel through cities.
