Traffic Demand Management

Kapsch's Traffic Demand Management solutions empower cities and their citizens to make well-informed and more sustainable daily transport choices that are beneficial for individuals and the city as a whole.

Traditional traffic management is all about controlling and optimizing traffic flow with techniques such as traffic lights and providing dynamic message signs based upon accurate traffic information. What they do not do, however, is affect the choices that people make in terms of their mode of transport or the routes that they make through a city.

Kapsch TrafficCom's unique Demand Management solutions enable cities to do precisely that. We empower city authorities to influence route choices, driving behaviours, and ultimately the choice of mode of transport. By influencing these decisions, traffic can be managed so that it uses the road network in a much better way – minimizing emissions, congestion and optimizing the use of space.

At the heart of our solution is a toolset that allows city authorities to define traffic management response plans for events and incidents. This includes traditional infrastructure-based measures such as adaptive traffic signal control, varying dynamic message signs and traffic information services. But it also enables the city to define sensitive zones that should be excluded from through-traffic, and to suggest routes for parking spaces (including Park & Ride) and other events.

A unique navigation app

Demand management in cities depends on close cooperation between authorities and those who live or travel through the city to reach their destination. Kapsch TrafficCom has partnered with Graphmasters to create a next-generation navigation app based upon the award-winning NUNAV Navigation App. This supports all travellers in the city, including private and commercial road users, pedestrians, cyclists, and people using public transport.

Because it can access the city's infrastructure data and link to the traffic management platform, the app is uniquely able to support urban routing.

  • It can integrate with Green Light Optimal Speed Advise (GLOSA) data to provide green-wave routing and create a genial driving experience to road users
    The app can provide dynamic route guidance to drivers to minimise stopping at red lights and relieves from stress when waiting through better information.
  • It enables cities to implement routing policies which avoid vulnerable areas and low-emission zones
    Demand Management tools allow authorities to define sensitive areas or to guide travellers to avoid events such as marathons, or to the best-fitting park-and-ride car-park.
  • It reduces congestion by enabling different vehicles to be routed differently
    Advanced load-balancing algorithms enables cars with similar origins and destinations to be routed differently to ensure that all routes remain queue-free, and all vehicles enjoy a smoother journey with less travel times and stops.

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.
