Demand-Responsive Transport and Payment Solution

Urbanization has inevitably created peripheral areas in specific regions and left people living there without public transport access, because it wouldn’t be economically reasonable for operators to provide the service in the area without significant demand.

For the public transport operator, the on-demand service helps increasing efficiency by dispatching the vehicle with right seating capacity. It is also an obligation of local authorities to provide transport service for people unable to independently use or access public transport, because of their health condition. Demand-Responsive Transport (DRT) helps to relieve these problems by providing service, which is not dependent on a specific fixed bus route or schedule

Main functionalities

    • Service order registration

    • Contactless ticketing payments are secure and encrypted, reducing the risk of internal fraud and theft while improving passenger safety.

Account-Based Ticketing

Account-based ticketing (ABT) is a fare-collection system where information about the right to travel is held in a back-office in the form of a digital account. Travelers can use various media (NFC and bank cards, QR codes and other tokens) to unlock the account for use in a vehicle.

Main functionalities

    • Fare management. Electronic fare management is a system that allows to automate the ticket pricing, purchase and payment. A large variety of fare structures are supported to cater the customer needs.
    • Fare concession management. There are always some passenger groups in public transport, who travel with discounted fares. Such concession/entitlement fares can be applied both manually and automatically in the system. The latter requires integrations with various databases, but offers the smoothest experience for managing the entitlements. There are also built-in tools for different counterparts (schools, universities, government agencies etc.) to apply concession status markers to customer accounts.
    • Ticket validation. Contactless ticket validation helps minimizing queues when boarding public transport vehicles. Validators accept a large variety of tokens, including NFC travel cards, QR-codes, contactless bank cards and others.
    • Sales channels

Border Queue Management Service

The border queue management service is an ICT-based tool that lets car and truck drivers reserve time slots for passing through border checkpoints, thereby eliminating the need for physical queues.

It has been developed by the Estonian company GoSwift as part of a public-private partnership; the service is used at all three checkpoints at Estonia’s border with Russia.

Prior to the system’s introduction in 2011, cars and trucks were processed on a first-come, first-served basis, which forced drivers to queue for hours or sometimes days near the border. The situation was particularly difficult for truck drivers as it made them vulnerable to fatigue and the threat of crime.

Moving the queues into the virtual realm has meant that drivers arrive at the checkpoint at their appointed times and are processed quickly, with waiting times now averaging as little as 30 minutes. In addition to drastically improving the lives of drivers, the change has allowed logistics companies to save millions of euros through better planning.

The service was awarded the Transport Achievement Award by OECD’s International Transport Forum in 2015. It has since been implemented in Finland, Lithuania and Russia.
Introduced in: 2011.

Benefits:

    • Elimination of days-long waits to cross border
    • Spreads peak traffic over time
    • Tourists and transport companies can effectively plan travel
    • Truck drivers can better manage work and rest time
    • Logistics companies save money through predictable scheduling – Estonian international carriers annually save 4M€

The Smart Pedestrian Crosswalk

Nutikas Ülekäigurada Tartu its

Poor decisions made by road users, attributed to the lack of information about the traffic environment, can be considered the primary cause of traffic accidents on pedestrian crosswalks. We have developed a device to solve this problem.

The Smart Pedestrian Crosswalk (SPC) monitors the situation on traffic lanes and sidewalks and offers several safety and notification functions. The main task of the SPC is to improve the awareness of road users located nearby and to notify road users of the probable traffic hazards – thus increasing situational awareness (SA) for all parties. The SPC increases SA with LED lights on a pole, an audio signal for the pedestrians, and constantly backlit crosswalk signs. To detect situations involving traffic hazards, narrow artificial intelligence algorithms are used, which are capable of predicting the moving trajectories of the road users and warn them in advance.

To attain the objectives of Level 5 autonomous driving, we need to improve the perception of the vehicles beyond what is currently offered by on-vehicle sensors. At Bercman, we achieve this by enabling additional perception for the vehicles through roadside sensors, for example by using our Smart Pedestrian Crosswalk to see around corners and detect road users well in advance. The SPC supports V2X (infrastructure-to-vehicle) communication enables automatic communication between all communication-ready traffic entities.

Main functionalities

Digital Transport Days Conference

European Commissioner for Transport Violeta Bulc, in cooperation with the Finnish Presidency of the Council of the European Union, has the pleasure to announce the Digital Transport Days 2019 that will be held this year from 7 to 9 October in Helsinki.

The European Commission, Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport (DG MOVE), in cooperation with the Finnish Presidency of the Council of the European Union, have the pleasure to invite you to the Digital Transport Days Conference that will be held this year from 7 to 9 October in Helsinki.

Come to the Finlandia Hall conference centre in Helsinki and experience an event which will offer a European viewpoint to digital solutions for transport and mobility!

Significant progress has been made since the first Digital Transport Days we organised in 2017 and it is time to keep up to date with the latest developments in the field.

The main focus of the conference will be on enabling policies in the field of data sharing, automation, customer-oriented services and explore the potential for reducing our footprint on the planet.

Come and discuss your ideas with public officials, experts, industry and service providers, visit the exhibition and test new prototypes/apps!

AI-Based Sales Prediction Solution for Logistics

Based on machine learning algorithms Flowit has developed a virtual sales assistant for repetitive sales model companies. We use the existing sales and quota history from customer databases and, based on this, we calculate the future orders, so we can send prefilled orders to submit to customers without any human interaction. We believe that automation is the way of the future for repetitive sales takes, and AI is a major enabler in this.

Before we developed Aitoldyou, sales personnel had to wait for the customer to ask for the proposal for their shipments. Now transport managers can work on optimizing the routes and deal with customer problems rather than with preparing offers. Offers will be sent automatically precisely when the customer needs them.

Aitoldyou’s key features:

    • Finds patterns in your data
    • Forecasts future transactions
    • Sends out prefilled proposals
    • Finds customers who have changed their purchase behavior and lets sales people know about it

Aitoldyou

Aitoldyou uses modern AI solutions to predict future. If there are patterns in your customer’s behavior then we can find it. Our AI engine works like a virtual salesman – from sending out complex pre-filled orders for customer to confirm, to generating simple call lists – it is all automated. From the customer centric trends we can identify churn and act, based on that.

Logistika suvekool

Augusti lõpus toimub Tallinnas logistika suvekool ohutust liiklemisest nii maal, rööbastel, õhus kui ka vees kas liikumisvahenditega või ilma.

Logistika suvekooli fookuseks on liiklusohutus

Augusti lõpus toimub Tallinnas logistika suvekool ohutust liiklemisest nii maal, rööbastel, õhus kui ka vees kas liikumisvahenditega või ilma.

Tehnikaülikooli transpordiplaneerimise professori Dago Antovi sõnul keskenduvad nad sel aastal väga aktuaalseks kujunenud teemale – kuidas ohutult liigelda? „Kuid tavapärasest laiemalt tahame lisaks teeohutusele puudutada ka raudtee-, lennu- ja veeohutust, päästetemaatikat ja muidugi ka võimalusi tuleviku innovatiivsete lahenduste kaudu ohutust oluliselt parandada,“ kinnitab Antov.

Lugupeetud ITL või ITS-i liige, kutsume Sind osalema ja aktiivselt kaasa rääkima!

23.-24. augustil toimuva suvekooli fookus on neljal valdkonnal:

    • raudtee-, mere- ja lennundusohutus;
    • pääste- ja kiirabi mured ning probleemid liiklusohutuse tagamisel;
    • liiklusohutus Eesti maanteedel ja linnatänavatel;
    • kas ja kuidas tuleviku IT lahendused suudavad muuta liikluse ohutuks?

Suvekoolis peavad ettekandeid tippteadlased ja -spetsialistid, näiteks Maanteeameti peadirektor Priit Sauk, Nordica piloot ja tehnikakõrgkooli lektor Rauno Raju ning tehnikaülikooli transpordiplaneerimise professor Dago Antov. Vaata kõiki esinejaid siit.

ABOUT FAST INNOVATION TRIALS IN FINEST SMART MOBILITY PROJECT

Positium will develop a service prototype which purpose is to better understand cross-border movements in twin-cities using mobile phone location data. Movements of people travelling between Helsinki and Tallinn and their journeys in destinations are analyzed and visualized. Ferry companies are able to identify passenger flows between harbours, but have little information about further movement after leaving the ferry. This service prototype will add a new dimension: Positium will analyze the mobility flows that pass through ports and map the movements in both urban areas after arriving to port (Estonians in Helsinki region and Finns in Tallinn regions). As a result, we will be able to map popular tourist stops, as well as the most common routes taken at the destination. Knowing tourists’ activity spaces, better urban planning can be undertaken, creating a pleasant environment for both the tourists and the locals. (Positium LBS Oü)
