An intelligent management of mobility processes and of relative
information are nowadays key factors for the expansion, economic
growth and service improvement of the society we live in. The
implementation and management of Intelligent Transport Systems
(ITS), of intelligent infrastructures and vehicles, of InfoMobility
devices and systems, are the core of this important technology
and services development area.
Thanks to its systematic participation in international research
and partnership projects, Softeco Sismat has developed remarkable
experience in this strategic business sector. The carrying out
of many pilot projects
in various European cities has made
it possible to develop, test and validate technological
solutions and innovative patterns in the field, and to subsequently transform
well-established prototypes and know-how into final products or
basic platforms for application development.
Softeco Sismat is nowadays a point of reference in Italy as well
as in Europe in the Transport Information Technology sector. Our
offer includes products and integrated solutions for various key
areas of this field:
- Planning and Management Systems for 'Flexible or Demand
Responsive Public Transport Services' (Demand Responsive
Transport, DRT). An innovative service pattern for public transport
which, contrary to the traditional line service, the trips are
not priorly influenced by timetables and routes to follow,
in that they are determined in a fully dynamic way by the users'
Managed through the
software system, this pattern is an excellent solution for low
demand areas (rural and mountain districts) as well as for the
creation of variable or complementary transport services or
intended as links with traditional transport, or even for services
specifically conceived for given groups of users (students,
handicapped and elderly people).
- Terminals for in-vehicle applications as well as
goods or special flexible transport. Driver support through
graphic display and maps, Global Positional System (GPS), communication
(via GSM or private radio network) with monitoring headquarters
and service management.
- Platforms for integrated management of information and control
strategies in traffic network supervision and control. Servers
for integrated management of control strategies (Integrated
Strategy Manager, ISM). Communication and information exchange
with information management nodes (TIC, Traffic Information
Center) through interfaces and standard protocols (DATEX). Supervision
and intelligent monitoring for integrated control stations,
adaptive multimedia information management (data, video images,
- Support platforms for mobility knowledge management.
Acquisition, integration, tracing, analysis and elaboration
of historical data on mobility. Support to development and management
of added value services for mobility managers (analyses, planning,
etc.) and road users.
- Multi-tier platforms for Internet information access and
distribution. Internet servers for data and geographic information
management and distribution in Intranet and Extranet applications.
Information distribution through palmtops, PDA and mobile
computing terminals. Access to remote information and services
for business users (e.g. remote maintenance) and the public
(e.g. parking or touristic information, etc.)
- Platforms for Urban Solid Waste Planning and Management:
service and maintenance monitoring, publication of statistical
data related to the service.
