TISA members meet in Hamburg, Germany

The last TISA Committee meetings of 2017 were hosted by the City of Hamburg on 12 and 13 December 2017.

TISA members visited the Smart Port of Hamburg and got the chance to explore the Smart Sounding Table which supports the port management in the planning and monitoring of all logistics in the port of Hamburg, such as ship traffic, trucks or rail. The table even facilitates the disaster management, since it is able to simulate flooding or other catastrophic events.

On the same day, Dr Eugen Reiswich, Project Manager R&D, presented the ROADS – Construction Site Coordination Project, another solution developed by Workplace Solutions for the City of Hamburg. The goal of this software is to minimize the interferences and disturbances in traffic flow. The system consists of several types of workplaces. Therefore, a wide range of tasks and processes can be linked with one another in order to simplify roadworks coordination. For more information on ROADS please visit the website.
