Traffic Management Strategies turn into Routing Proposals

The function of the MDM as a data hub for municipal traffic management was presented in the current pilot project “SCHOOL”.

The consortium of the mFund-supported research project “SCHOOL” gatehered at the end of April to test the successful implementation in the Frankfurt pilot area. For the first time in German-speaking countries, environmentally sensitive traffic management strategies can be transformed into concrete routing suggestions for citizens.

What does this mean

  • The City of Frankfurt will incorporate planned strategies and packages of measures with the indicators that trigger the situation into the platforms of the project partners.
  • These are transferred to the MDM via the DATEX II interfaces, taking into account the current traffic and environmental situation.
  • A routing platform then develops alternative routes and virtual signs and feeds them into an intermodal information system.
  • Parallel to this, light signal systems are controlled from the strategies according to the situation.

The applications are currently undergoing extensive testing and are to be introduced to other regions.
