Le point de contact national Transport biélorusse recherche des partenaires
pour un:
Projet: STREP
Pour l’objectif: 6.2 ICT for Mobility of the Future
Nom provisoire du projet: Networked Monitoring of Transport Motion

Date de clôture: 13/04/2010


Energization on transport market, rising of turnover of passengers and goods
lead to continuous increasing of intensity of urban mobility. The TransportNet
represents an integral conception for improving of city transport motion,
on rational approach for decreasing of city transport motion density under
simultaneous preservation of existing motion priorities for a number of cars
(emergency, policy etc.).

Présentation de la proposition:
The TransportNet road safety system will develop following different

1) Demand management. 
This part of TransportNet is development of a system for localization of
sources of specific sounds (sirens, etc.) on city roads in the conditions of
limited visibility and complicated road movement. It provides development of
algorithms of localization of sound source, definition of direction and speed
of its movement. Classification of sound source will be worked up. It makes
possible to give priority to some classes of city car motion (policy,
and so on). 

2) ICT tools and services for logistics optimized for urban environments,
use of
ICT for replacing mobility (virtual mobility) 
The Service Centre software application will determine a density of city
transport motion (it unites two functions: redirection of a number of cars to
alternative routes and connection with “smart” traffic lights for optimization
of their working regime and so city road conditions). 

The innovative characteristics of TransportNet are: 
- Improved Sensing by means of development of a system for localization of
sources of specific sounds (sirens, etc.) on city roads in the conditions of
limited visibility and complicated road movement. 
- Cooperative control by means of elaboration of tools (radio-channel
“Car-to-Service Centre”) and methods (graph analyses of transport system). 
- Decision making for “smart” traffic lights on a base of analysis of city
motion density of transport flow and priorities of car motion. 
This system, basing in large extent on sufficiently well-developed
(GPS, GSM, fuzzy net and logistics), in addition with elaboration of some
technologies solutions may be reliable and advanced tool for increasing of
road situation detection.

Expertise in GPS 
Experts in real time computing algorithms and simulations 
Experts in radio communication (development of antennas, transmitters and

Netix, PME polonaise, recherche des partenaires pour un:
Projet: STREP

Pour l’objectif: 6.2 ICT for Mobility of the Future
Nom provisoire du projet: ICT for replacing mobility

Challenge: Challenge 6: ICT for Mobility, Environmental Sustainability and
Energy Efficiency
Date de clôture: 13/04/2010

We are looking for partners interested in a project related to developing ways
of replacing physical mobility with internet based communication- eg.
videoconferences, tele-presence, virtual mobility etc. We are interested in
contributing to the development of theoretical concepts, as well as
Proof-of-concept Field Operational Tests.
Présentation de la proposition:
The current state of the videoconferencing technologies allows for much wider
spread of that solutions than is observed for real end-users, both for private
companies and for public bodies. 
Advanced videoconferencing technologies can be nowadays considered as a real
alternative to physical mobility (outside as well as inside of urban
areas). As
such they can contribute to the development of new Mobility Concepts to
problems of environmental pollution and fatalities and injuries resulting from
transportation. Moreover, virtual mobility can be seen as an important factor
contributing to the future economic growth of the European Community. 

From the other hand, the technological development of videoconferencing
technologies is very uneven. As the progress in vision and voice transmission
technologies is astonishing, there is a significant lack of technologies able
to integrate different teleconferencing systems. There are currently several
major technological systems on the market and each of them is being developed
independently of each other. Consequently, these systems are hardly (if at
able to communicate with each other. Our initial analysis revealed that this
obstacle can be one of the most important factors hindering development of
videoconferencing technologies for general (mass) end users. What is even more
important, it is hardly possible that this obstacle could be solved by
manufacturers of tele-presence equipment. Their interest lies in dominating
market with own system(s) and not in allowing (or enhancing) a free
between different systems and manufacturers. A similar situation was observed
many times before, when simultaneously several new competitive technologies
(systems/ standards) entered the marked and hindered its development until one
of them won the battle. Such a situation is good for the winner but not
necessarily for the end users, the economy, the society and the environment. 

That is why we believe that it is time to rise a research project, which will
focus on identifying technological obstacles in integrating different
videoconferencing systems and practical ways of overcoming them. Only than
would it be possible to think about using ICT as a means of replacing mobility
on the wider scale. However, such an ambitious goal could not be achieved by
only concentrating on technological issues. That is why we are convinced, that
integral part of the project should answer the question, what are the medical,
psychological, economical and legal barriers in implementation of
videoconferences, tele-working, distant learning, etc. for mass users. 

The expected outcome of the project should also be a set of recommendations on
the best strategies, how to replace physical mobility of people by means of
videoconferences in order to minimize the environmental footprint and maximize
safety and economic growth. 

Alternatively (or additionally), the outcome of the project could be designing
and/or implementing initial Field Operational Tests of new mobility tools and
systems in order to further asses its/their application potential.
