Demonstrations

The main theme of the ITS Glasgow Congress is ‘Delivering Future Cities Now’ and Glasgow is keen to demonstrate the successful implementations of ITS throughout Europe. The 2016 ITS European Congress will focus on the use of data from a variety of sources which when compared can provide a more informed and integrated choice to the travelling public. The demonstrations will emphasise proven deployed ITS solutions and innovative research and development systems.

Registration

In order to register for demonstrations delegates should go initially to the Demonstration Desk at the main registration area outside the exhibition Hall (Hall 4) where they will be directed to either the static demonstrators within the Exhibition Hall or be given a time slot for the outside demonstrators.

Demonstration area

The outdoor demonstration area at the Congress is immediately adjacent to the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC) on the picturesque banks of the River Clyde in Glasgow (Exhibition Way, Glasgow, G3 8YW, UK).

Green Light Optimal Speed Advice (GLOSA), Dynniq

dynniq

With the participation of:

GLS-01 Co-Gistics-logo_strapline-e1390934384809  ertico

Description:

The Dynniq demonstration is of an Infrastructure to Vehicle connected vehicle service delivered via 4G communications to an on-board unit and displayed on an application in a Dynniq branded car. The demonstration site is a network of 6 traffic signal junctions close to the ITS Europe 2016 Congress venue. GLASGLOSA takes traffic signal status information from Glasgow City Council’s Traffic Management System (TMS) SCOOT (Split Cycle Offset Optimisation Technique) system and delivers a GLOSA (Green Light Optimal Speed Advice) service to the app. It is not a permanent test site, and the service will only be operational between 0930 and 1530 during the ITS Europe Congress. At any time during the demonstration Glasgow City Council will be able to override the signal operation at the junction for operational reasons.

GLOSA will also be presented by CO-GISTICS, a  CIP project alongside another C-ITS service: Cargo Transport Optimisation. GEOLOC SYSTEMS is going to adapt its GLOSA application with a connection to the SPAT/MAP server and propose its version of the GLOSA application. Cargo transport optimisation will be added to the demo by integrating these services to the GLOSA interface. The driver will receive and send information concerning the delivery and pick up of goods. He will also have access to the HERE navigation tool and an optimisation of customs management.

This collaboration between 2 service providers with the precious help of Glasgow city will demonstrate interoperability of C-ITS services using 4G communication.

Location: Street network outside SECC

Maintenance Assistance Vehicle (MAV), Mott MacDonald

With the participation of our supply chain partners:

emtek  ssl

Description:

Advanced Motorway Indicators (AMIs), supporting Highways England’s Smart Motorway schemes, present numerous challenges when requiring maintenance. The use of super-span gantries do not allow access, meaning maintenance activities are not only time consuming and resource intensive, but also require extensive traffic management which is disruptive to road users.

Mott MacDonald, as principal contractor for Highways England, has developed the Maintenance Assistance Vehicle (MAV) with the support of Simulation Systems Limited (SSL) and specialist vehicle manufacturer Emtek Services. The MAV reduces AMI swap out times, reduces resource requirements and improves road-worker safety.

Location: Indoor, Stand P48

Registration: No registration required.

Schedule: 

  • Monday: 18:00-20:00
  • Tuesday and Wednesday: 9:00-17:30
  • Thursday: 9:00-15:00
‘Sensing the City’ project, a mobile sensor Network, The University of Strathclyde

strathclyde

Description:

The University of Strathclyde in partnership with Censis proposes to demonstrate the ‘Sensing the City’ project, a mobile sensor Network. This sensor Network focusses on environmental sensors that attached to a vehicle. The sensors would monitor and record; Carbon monoxide (CO), Nitric Oxide (NO), Nitric Dioxide (NO2), Particle matter, Temperature, humidity and pressure and Ozone (O3). In addition the sensor node is also able to pick-up Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity.

Sensing the City is innovative in moving from static sensing to a mobile sensor network, with the ability to follow specific transport networks dynamically, picking up Air Quality data and with the potential to monitor other movement/flows in space.  The demonstrator will illustrate the monitoring process, the data capture and the analysis.

Location: Indoor, Stand D75

Registration: No registration required.

Schedule: 

  • Monday: 18:00-20:00
  • Tuesday and Wednesday: 9:00-17:30
  • Thursday: 9:00-15:00
