Austrian transportation technology giant Kapsch TrafficCom is highlighting and demonstrating how modern mobility solutions can contribute to an improved quality of life at this week’s ITS World Congress, which is taking place from September 17-21, in Copenhagen, Denmark.
With successful projects completed and in operation in more than 50 countries worldwide, Kapsch is using the World Congress to demonstrate how it can act as a one-stop provider of intelligent transportation systems in the fields of tolling, traffic management, smart urban mobility, traffic safety and security, and connected vehicles.
Currently operating subsidiaries and branches in more than 30 countries, the company is focusing its presentations on integrated traffic and mobility services combining traffic, transit and parking data under one Intelligent Mobility Solutions (IMS) umbrella concept. At the Kapsch stand, attendees will be able to see the company’s latest developments including its traffic management product suite and the new comprehensive in-vehicle V2X (vehicle-to-everything) platform.
For the first time, Kapsch will be demonstrating its integrated Advanced Traffic Management (ATM) product suite covering various applications from ‘highway to driveway’. The tight integration of the DYNAC and EcoTrafiX offerings combines all aspects of ATM, including urban, highways, bridges, tunnels, managed lanes, reversible roadways, and integrated corridors.
The updated Kapsch product suite includes an upgrade path for existing customers and is modularly deployable to cover any traffic management domain combination. The system is also scalable from standalone server deployments to national or multi-region datacenter deployments with tens of thousands of devices, and the unified user interface is fully web-based and built on the latest HTML 5 technologies and standards.
Kapsch technology will be demonstrated on a guided bus tour over the Oresund Bridge, with presentations of general information on the only fixed link between Sweden and Denmark. On arrival at the toll operations station on the Swedish side of the bridge, different ITS systems will be shown to demonstrate electronic toll collection (ETC), including vehicle detection, smart and safe speed control through the toll station, systems in the Traffic Control Center, the CCTV system connected cross-border to both Swedish and Danish police forces, and an alarm system for emergency response services in both countries.
