ROAD TRANSPORT AND TRAFFIC TELEMATICS (RTTT): AN INTEGRATED APPROACH FOR MOBILITY MANAGEMENT

Traffic congestion in urban centers represents one of the most serious problems with social impact and heavy penalties for the whole community in terms of direct and indirect costs. Pollution, wasted time, fuel and energy consumption, and deterioration of the environment and urban way of living are the most relevant, but not the only negative effects. Telematics, applied to mobility, is increasing in popularity by providing efficient tools for the design and the operation of system solutions, optimizing the results envisaged by the traffic authorities' measures. MAC SpA has spent several years dealing with activities directly related to road transport and traffic telematics (RTTT). This paper will focus on the main aspects of integration of the telematics systems and technologies for managing the mobility demand, especially in cities. The proposed integrated telematic system aims to optimize service made available to communities by striving for three different goals: 1) optimize use of road resources in terms of both transit and parking; 2) request regulation of road resources; and 3) balance optimization between public and private transport in urban areas. The envisaged subsystems in an integrated traffic mobility management system include: centralized traffic-lights management and variable message signs; public transport management; environmental monitoring; parking areas control; and access control and road pricing.
