MUNICH COMFORT - COOPERATIVE MANAGEMENT FOR URBAN AND REGIONAL TRANSPORT IN THE GREATER MUNICH AREA

This paper gives an overview of a concept for a comprehensive transportation management system which was developed within a consortium of public authorities, the automobile supplier and electronic industry and researchers. The aim is to take advantage of the cooperation between all institutions being involved in and/or in charge of transportation and to integrate all modes of transport. The basic components of the traffic management system are: advanced urban and regional traffic control, traveler information technologies, and an overall strategic data and control center. A strong cooperation has been established between Munich COMFORT and the cities of London, Lyon, Amsterdam and Dublin, in the framework of the LLAMD-project (London, Lyon, Amsterdam, Munich, and Dublin), which represents a major city-project of the DRIVE 2/ATT program of the CEC.
