OPTICITIES study visit to explore intelligent transport solutions
22 January 2016
The OPTICITIES project is holding a free study visit on 10 March 2016 in Lyon (France) that will showcase the innovative urban intelligent transport systems that have been developed and tested within the scope of the project. The event is one in an ongoing series.
The study visit will look particularly at the use of traffic prediction models in Lyon's traffic management centre, the OPTICITIES multimodal travel planner, real-time carpooling, continuity between smartphones and in-car navigation systems, and urban network mapping.
The OPTICITIES project is working with six pilot cities - Birmingham (United Kingdom), Gothenburg (Sweden), Lyon (France), Madrid (Spain), Turin (Italy) and Wroclaw (Poland) - to address mobility challenges that occur in urban centres. It is looking at these challenges from five aspects - accessibility, the environment, quality of life, urban freight, and management of public space.
