Intelligent Transport Systems
has carried out the following projects:
TTR has undertaken several
research contracts for the UK Highways Agency:
- The costs and benefits
- Behavioural responses
and user attitudes to new ITS based automated enforcement technologies
- Automated highway systems
TTR is a member of the
OMNIPURSE project team which is developing more standardised and interoperable
products to suit the transport market. TTR has worked closely with ITS industry
participants to identify and meet the needs of key users such as local authorities,
public transport operators and car park operators.
TTR played a key role
in the planning and installation of a real time information system for the
inaugural Showcase quality bus route in the West Midlands. TTR also played
a leading role in the prestigious ELGAR project which aimed to reduce air
pollution and traffic congestion in Bristol through urban ITS based measures.
We developed functional specifications for the scheme and evaluated system
of ITS into Transport Strategies
TTR was a member of the
Multi-Modal Study team, which drew up future strategy options for the West
Midlands Area. TTR was responsible for assessing the potential for ITS solutions
within the study area. We are also carrying out an integrated evaluation of
the telematics in Bristol as part of the European VIVALDI project.
TTR was responsible for
the evaluation and project management of the EC funded SAMPLUS
and SAMPO projects. These involved demonstrations of ITS-based demand-responsive
public transport services in five European countries. TTR also undertook the
feasibility studies in West Sussex and Surrey, which led to the implementation
of a pilot system in both counties.
TTR completed a socio-economic
evaluation of the ROMANSE II project for Hampshire County Council. This covered
an evaluation of the implementation and integration of a number of ITS technologies,
including traveller information systems and the use of VMS for re-routing
TTR co-ordinates the
INFORM network of public and private transport organisations and companies.
The network acts as a forum for the exchange of ITS expertise and knowledge
relating to public transport.
