Solutions for cities: Gewi CEO Hagen Geppert
Over the past 25 years, Gewi
’s continuous development of the TIC (Traffic Information Centre) software has evolved this commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) product from providing the ability to create and broadcast traffic information for RDS-TMC navigation devices, to now deliver a wide range of product features to provide solutions for cities.
Gewi is demonstrating here at the ITS World Congress some of those product features available to cities which include, Work Zone, that covers all stages of project activity from planning and permitting multi-phase work zones to distribution of real-time information.
The parking feature enables the collection, or creation of important data such as occupancy, location, pricing, and many other easily configurable elements, while accident information can be automatically collected from providers such as Waze, or created manually in the TIC system with details including the location, direction, impact on traffic and road infrastructure. TIC also creates projects to clear and track accidents.
The organised event feature provides the ability to collect, or create, information about events and use this information as an input to create traffic and travel information or projects associated with the event. ‘Traffic lights’ enables management, maintenance and repair of traffic lights as well as monitoring operational status, while traffic flow data can be collected from, and distributed to, required systems and apps.
The traffic flow can also be related in TIC to provide operators an accurate picture of real-time conditions on the roadway to quickly verify and process traffic events. Public Transport events informs the public about any problems and provides incident management for agencies. All data can then be sent to navigation devices, broadcasters or other required systems or applications.
