All you need to know about TISA at the 26th ITS World Congress in Singapore

After the success of the 2018 ITS World Congress, TISA Members are preparing for this year’s event in Singapore. The agenda features demonstrations at the sand and sessions, not to be missed!

Join us at TISA’s stand 375 to take a look at the two demonstrations that will be presented. The first demonstration will show ADASIS’ first interfacing of real-time traffic from TISA Member GEWI’s TIC3 messages. The aim is to demonstrate that AD relevant traffic event messages can be processed by ADASIS, displayed by the Electronic Horizon Reconstructor of Elektrobit.

The second demonstration will present a data protocol transmission that can carry information to AD. From specific GEWI TIC3 XML, this demonstration will show a mix of AD & conventional vehicles and different scenarios thanks to which one can see how real time traffic information can influence the AD vehicles (ex. closing lane, road section not allowed for AD vehicles).

Let’s talk about sessions. Mark your calendar for the Special Interest Session (SIS) 09 on “Challenge of integrating automated vehicles into the digital infrastructure”, taking place on Tuesday 22 October. This session will feature TISA Members as speakers. Join Matthias Unbehaun, TISA, Belgium, Prokop Jehlicka, HERE Technologies, Germany and ERTICO’s Jean-Charles Pandazis, Johanna Tzanidaki and Stephane Dreher to discuss what data is needed to support Automated Driving, how the automated vehicle should be integrated with the digital infrastructure currently under development and whether the traffic will be managed differently.

The second session will feature TISA Member NNG on Wednesday 23 October for SIS 32 on “Strategy of practical implement of V-I cooperative systems for traffic accident avoidance”. This session aims to introduce the development and deployment of V-I Cooperative systems and to discuss some technological and political subjects of V-I Cooperative systems for traffic accidents avoidance.

Don’t forget to pay us a visit at stand 375, where you will also find co-exhibitors GEWI, NDS Association, NNG, ADASIS and SENSORIS.

See you in Singapore!

TISA to issue white papers on TPEG’s impact on Automated Vehicles

The Transport Protocol Experts Group (TPEG) set of protocols for traffic and traveller related information has been created as a protocol to deliver information to drivers to support them in their driving task. The range of message goes from safety-related message, to more supporting information of parking, refuelling, and points of interest and more.

With the advent of automated vehicles, the role of the driver is changing, as is her or his need for information. Also, the focus for information changes to the vehicle itself. As the vehicle will be controlling its own trajectory, it will need the information to do this safely.

TISA Members are therefore working on a white paper to discuss the impact that the latter has on traffic and traveller information, TPEG in specific, from both a business and technical perspective. More information will follow soon.

GEWI Announces WZDaaS for USDOT Work Zone Data Initiative

The USDOT Work Zone Data Initiative (WZDI) has established a data format to enable the exchange of Work Zone data in a standard protocol and provide many benefits for Work Zone safety and planning, avoiding conflicts with other agencies and jurisdictions.

To make the adoption of this format easy, GEWI announces a hosted Work Zone Data as a Service (WZDaaS) solution which allows agencies to use their existing systems, and be compliant with the new standard.  WZDaaS also makes the Work Zone data available to navigation systems, broadcasters, other systems, and create CAV compliant data for the emerging automated vehicle market. Agencies looking for more features can use thee TIC software for total Work Zone planning, processing permit requests, issuing permits, Smart Work Zone operations and post project analytics.

GEWI will be demonstrating this solution at booth #216 at ITS America 04-07 2019 in Washington, D.C.  To schedule a demonstration at the conference, contact jim.oneill@gewi.com.  For a demonstration after ITS America, please contact a GEWI representative in your region.

TISA participates in the ITS European Congress in Brainport-Eindhoven

The ITS European Congress 2019, which took place from 3 to 6 June in Brainport-Eindhoven, the Netherlands, was a great occasion for TISA and its members GEWI, Be-Mobile, HERE, INRIX, NavInfo and Rijkswaterstaat to meet and showcase their latest developments and technology.
