Dynniq to highlight data sharing between local authorities at JCT 2017 Symposium


Dynniq will showcase a unique way of sharing information between neighboring local authorities using multi-tenant hosted systems, at the forthcoming JCT 2017 Traffic Signal Symposium, which is being held at The University of Warwick, UK, on September 20-21.

The use of multi-tenant hosted systems allows the flexible sharing, monitoring and control of ITS assets and will present many benefits to the travelling public. This approach allows multiple local authorities to be on a common system, which can also be hosted, with the information and assets being shared. If needed, a traffic strategy or a variable message sign (VMS) in one authority’s area could be controlled or influenced by data from an adjoining authority.

Kevin Gilday, solutions manager for IPS at Dynniq UK, commented, “Traditionally local authorities have their own systems in place, and driving across boundaries often means that you can drive from one area to another with little direct sharing of data. What we’re providing in South Yorkshire is a platform that links together the Sheffield, Rotherham and Doncaster systems to provide a more seamless experience for the road user.”

Gilday will present ‘Removing the Boundaries’ at the 2017 symposium. The format of the event will be the same as in previous years, and will include a symposium program filled with topical presentations, a specialist exhibition, and the opportunity to network with old and new contacts.

Another paper at this year’s symposium will be ‘Innovating the Shuttle – Fitting the signals to the needs of the users’. Co-presented by Tom Siddall of Dynniq, and Jason Hole from Cheshire East Highways, the paper and presentation will look to explain the approach taken in resolving the challenges of a new shuttle bus service operating in a picturesque village in Cheshire East. The presentation highlights the innovations used to provide a signal installation that was appropriate to its setting, and fitted with the needs of the users of the site.

Nigel Fairfield from Dynniq will also present ‘Decisions and Data’, which will expose the significant amount of information that is available to support decisions, strategies, and onward public dissemination. This is based on Dynniq’s work associated with collecting both free and licensed data, and using it in such a way that we can support ITS strategies and road user advice.
