A week in Singapore: the 26° ITS World Congress



More than 10,000 participants, over 300 exhibitors, 20 between technical tours and demonstrations. These are the numbers of the 26° ITS World Congress 2019 which was held from 21 to 25 October in Singapore. The most important international event in the field of intelligent transport systems, promoted by ERTICO-ITS Europe, ITS America, ITS Asia Pacific, and for this edition hosted by ITS Singapore and Land Transport Authority, saw the participation of TTS Italia representing Italy and several companies. The Association's stand hosted six Italian companies: 4icom, 5T, EngiNe, Pluservice, Tecnositaf,



New mobility models in which the point of view passes from the vehicle to the service. "Disruptive" changes that anticipate the future of global transport where technology is at the base of fluidization of flows and economic development, particularly in cities. This is a summary of the anticipation of the future that the ITS World Congress in Singapore has returned to those who visited it. Eyes on the Maas, Mobility as a Service, and on the autonomous vehicle, exploring all the possibilities that connection and 5G can give to services related to mobility. Among the exhibitors there are also some car manufacturers and telephone operators that are refining the technology enabling them to implement the communication network that will support our travels in the near future. Maximum attention is also paid to the road pricing system implemented by Singapore, which combines with its multimodal nature, the natural hub of South-East Asia.



Italy meets Singapore. On October 24th, within the ITS World Congress, TTS Italia organized a workshop involving the Italian companies present in the Association's stand and companies from Singapore represented by ITS Singapore, with the aim of facilitating networking. The event, opened by Rossella Panero, President of TTS Italia, saw the direct comparison of the two realities with the presentation and sharing of national products and projects.



Pluservice, the company from Senigallia, for twenty years on the integrated information systems market, has presented at the ITS Congress in Singapore, the Account Based Ticketing solution, recently implemented in Bari, commissioned by the local transport operator AMTAB. The system is highly innovative: no more card-based but account-based. The information necessary to travel on a bus is not stored in the smartcards allowing to use the service, yet it is contained in the central systems and the smartcards act only as a personal ID.



The city of Turin and 5T (a public company operating in smart mobility) shared their innovation activities in Singapore with particular reference to Turin City Lab, an initiative created to attract start-ups and companies interested in innovating the municipality area. Furthermore, the Smart Road initiative was shared and what 5T is carrying out with its operations center in the context of the self-driving vehicle and C-ITS services.



Smart solutions for smart road and smart mobility. In particular, presented two use cases in Singapore: the project weigh in motion (weighing of moving vehicles), developed for the motorway sector, aimed at intelligent monitoring of the infrastructures to guarantee their safety as well as ordinary and extraordinary maintenance . The second project is the development of smart mobility and smart parking solutions within a more complex solution for the construction of a digital city in Taormina (South Italy).



Tecnositaf, specialized in integrated systems for road safety, presented at the ITS Congress in Singapore a project called RMT (Road Management Tool) for traffic management on the Italian infrastructure pertaining to Anas. The system is made up of regional operating rooms extended throughout the national territory belonging to a single central operating room where all the information necessary to guarantee safety and information to users on the road network is collected and managed. Through the RMT system it is therefore possible to remotely control the road network and monitor traffic flows with the help of cameras used, among other things, for counting, vehicle classification and criticality management.



4icom exhibited for the first time at the ITS World Congress in Singapore 2019 on the TTS Italia booth. This first was particularly interesting and rich in contacts.
This presence allowed us to meet some of our clients or their representatives in Asia-Pacific but also Singaporean engineering companies that are active in the region.
4icom has also established numerous contacts with the various parties in charge of Singapore's new urban toll system (ERP2), which is ambitious but complex to develop and operate. Thus, we will monitor and enrich this contacts to generate new business opportunities and, in the long term, potentially  a presence of the 4icom group in the region.



EngiNe in Singapore presented PlateMatching, a second-generation average speed control system that focuses the information extracted from the vehicle license plates on matching and not reconnaissance. It is an extremely flexible solution that, in fact, EngiNe, has recently applied in Venice to control the speed of boats, giving way to a project that is unique in the world, aimed at increasing safety levels and reducing pollution levels.



The new age of mobility. This is the title of the next ITS World Congress to be held in Los Angeles from 4 to 8 October 2020 organized by ITS America. On the website a call has already been opened for scientific contributions and it is possible to find the contacts of the coordinators of the regional programs.

Sinelec presents LIBRA/S, weight-in-motion-solution

Weigh-In-Motion systems arise from the need to properly manage overloaded vehicles in road transportation. These vehicles can affect the life expectancy of road infrastructures, increasing the degradation of pavement, bridges and viaducts, besides impacting on road safety, environmental pollution and fair competition between transportation companies.
LIBRA/S is the SINELEC Weigh-In-Motion solution, based on its ITS know-how and its significant experience gained working as a technological company of the ASTM Group, the second largest toll road operator in the world with approximately 5.000 km of road in concession.
Thanks to LIBRA/S, SINELEC can support customers for the entire life span of the WIM project: from site selection to plant design, through installation and calibration, up to maintenance. LIBRA/S therefore represents an "end-to-end" solution that is widely flexible, modular and scalable, based on an architecture that can be configured according to the field of application and the required measurement accuracy.


Acting as an integrated solution based on field elements and center element, LIBRA/S is open to the integration of existing and third-party WIM solutions; it also interfaces with the Operational Control Centers (OCC) through the most common communication protocols. In detail:
- the field part can implement sensors of different technologies (quartz, pietzoelectric, optical fiber, etc.) and other optional field devices such as smart cameras (ANPR, KEMLER, DOT numbers), variable message signs (VMS) and access control systems;
- the center consists of a back-end for the management of multi-brand field devices and a graphic web interface, designed to simplify management operations and enable remote monitoring, diagnostics and data collection of weight / traffic. Mobile access optimizes the usability of the system, allowing immediate control actions by the police and maintenance staff. Through diagnostic, data-analysis and reporting tools it is possible to constantly monitor the components of the single site and collect statistical data for a high-level global view of the network of weighing stations monitored. As a result, it’s possible to obtain reports and graphical representations of the traffic detected, to identify the traffic flows, O / D matrices, helping the customer to optimize the day-by-day management and the development of an appropriate predictive maintenance models.
LIBRA / S, allowing to detect detailed information related to heavy vehicles transit, is an enabling tool for the elaboration of data-driven models and for the implementation of proactive decision support systems, applicable in the areas of infrastructure management, logistics and access management of ports and intermodal terminals.


Perception tools enabling future mobility by Swarco Mizar

The emerging connectivity and anticipated automation are expected to revolutionize future traffic monitoring and control systems. The customers’ expectations are increasing hand in hand with the unprecedented data availability and technological developments. The new data sources (e.g. connected vehicles, smart cameras) and new technologies (IoT, Big Data, AI) open a unique opportunity to SWARCO not only to meet the rising needs of the existing customers but also to expand its portfolio by integrating these new perception tools in the development of new features. This story is about how to make “stupid” surveillance cameras (even from legacy installations) more intelligent to analyse image data right at the camera for enabling applications for mobility management within smart cities of all sizes. The perception based solution is enabled though a collaboration with Swarm Analytics , which provides a technology based on video stream analysis, featuring AI capabilities for generating real-time information about the monitored area directly at the camera source – the brain for the camera.
In the case of Urban Traffic monitoring, the proposed solution provides counting, classification, and tracking of cars, pedestrians, vans, bikes, buses, trucks, trucks + trailers for the creation of heatmaps, origin-destination (OD) matrices, and speed estimations. A proof of concept for these features has been implemented by SWARCO in Denmark.
For Parking monitoring, we talk about the identification of occupied and free parking lots, time measurement of parking objects, and classification of cars, vans, buses, and trucks. SWARCO is deploying the parking monitoring system as described above in the US.
Finally, this solution can also be applied to Public Transport, where existing CCTV streams can be analysed for the detection and counting of people and objects in the vehicles and as well as the determination of capacity status based on defined thresholds. SWARCO Mizar is using these features in a Pilot in Rome, Italy.

Trustonomy: an interactive session at the VIII Congress of Public Transport and Smart City

On October 17th, the VIII Congress of Public Transport and Smart City was held in Warsaw (Poland): the perfect event to discuss about intelligent partnerships for cities of the future and the concrete role of transport in shaping a friendly urban space.
Within the Congress, Trustonomy organised an interactive and brainstorming session to briefly present the challenges faced by the project as well as carry out interactive exercises with stakeholders to share views and ideas related to the use of autonomous vehicle, especially from the point of view of final users.
The Trustonomy project has received funding from European Union’s Horizon2020 research and innovation programme with the aim of building acceptance and trust in autonomous vehicles. TTS Italia is one of the partner involved.
