Conference: "The New World of Technological Systems for Mobility - Supply and demand meet"
It will be held next 28 and 29 November 2011, in Bologna, the Conference "The New World Mobility Systems Technology - supply and demand meet," organized by TTS Italia and Club Italia. In urban and metropolitan areas there is a cross-disciplinary, involving the "Technological" Government of Mobility, payment systems and integrated public transport systems. The conference and the event exhibition "The New World of technological systems for Mobility - Supply and demand meet," will be an opportunity to investigate the cases in Italy, Europe and worldwide, where, armed with a strategy of environment and economical sustainability, are addressed in an integrated fashion, innovation and management of all three systems for mobility in urban and metropolitan areas. The meeting between the demand side (public institutions, service companies, associations) and supply (producers, providers, etc..) aims to focus on opportunities and challenges for promoting innovation and development and will help the process of implementation by the Italian State, of the European Directive on ITS (Intelligent Transport Systems in the field of road transport and interfaces with other modes of transport), scheduled for 27 February 2012.

TTS Italia members at the 15° EPA Congress - Parking: the New Deal
It will be held form 14 to 16 September 2011, in Turin, the 15° European Parking Association (EPA) Congress, titled “Parking: the New Deal”. Parking industry has to provide more to its customers – greater attention to their needs, higher quality and better standards. The technical means are there and technology offers us better opportunities for the future. This Congress will give every participant a greater insight into the opportunities for the future, ways of solving problems and delivering a better service. It will also give the parking industry a better insight into how we can best meet the aims and aspirations of towns and cities. The congress is also about getting better recognition for the parking industry and an understanding frompoliticians, policy makers and others that getting the approach to parking right is critical for the success of towns and cities. The professional programme of the 15th EPA Congress has been developed by a Scientific and Technical Committee composed of 20 members from 6 different countries, representing 15 different disciplines related to the general field of urban mobility. Among the members, Prof. Antonio Musso, from the University of Rome La Sapienza- Faculty of Engineering, TTS Italia ordinary member. Among the speakers of the Congress, there will aslo be several TTS Italia members: ACI, founding member; Politecnico di Torino, Centro Ricerche Fiat and the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Rome La Sapienza, all TTS Italia ordinary members.

SIMIS (Sustainable and Intelligent Mobility Integrated System) by Intecs S.p.A
In the field of ITS the heterogeneity of products and formats often ends up tying the public authorities to choose a supplier and all the applications needed for the connection between the operations room and installed sensors. The public authorities often need to expand and manage their systems using an interface that makes available all the knowledge sources in a single framework. The SIMIS has been created with the aim of unbinding the world of sensors from the data processing and management systems. The development of SIMIS has followed a modular approach that allows to obtain a system composed of independent components, each of them with its own specific functionality within a centralized control room that can also operate in a distributed environment. This approach allows to obtain high scalability and adaptability for the system in order to meet the needs of the public authorities and making it the ideal solution for extremely heterogeneous operating environments, ranging from small urban and industrial areas to more complex metropolitan scenarios. The scalability is possible at both HW and SW levels so that the user can have a high level of customization. The SIMIS integrates:
- parking and flow sensors using proprietary technology, it is also possible the integration of commercial sensors and surveillance systems;
- a connection system among the centralized server and devices on the road, allowing the transport of information. Solutions are available through proprietary wireless network or telco operator;
- a middleware for the collection and storage of data in order to provide both real time and offline information;
- interface modules for integration with existing systems (eg VMS panels management, info by text message, heterogeneous data acquisition);
- a simulation engine for macro/meso traffic type that allows end user to develop and update real-time estimation of traffic flows over the entire area of interest;
- a set of services that can be scaled according to user needs: parking management, vehicle tracking, real-time flow sensing and statistical models;
- cartographic and textual interfaces that allow local and web access to the services.
The SIMIS is highly scalable and allows to meet the specific needs of each customer, reducing costs and development time for new features.
