Always on the right track

"How do I get right now exactly where I want?" - ITS Vienna Region (represented by Klaus Heimbuchner) and VAO (Verkehrsauskunft Österreich, traffic information Austria, a project of Asfinag, represented by Martin Müllner) have the answer und present their solutions on the ITS World Congress Vienna. ITS Vienna Region leads travellers through the federal states of Vienna, Lower Austria and Burgenland on their website "anachb.at". VAO is planning to launch their own online platform for end-users which is supposed to cover Austria as a whole. Both websites offer multimodal solutions (combinations of public transport, car including parking, bike, walking to choose). Their scope is to make travelling easier in a way that suits traffic policy, e.g. not leading traffic through residential areas. In order to offer this function in a way that makes sense, the system needs to be fed the latest information immediately. The partners which offer this information are the public transport systems, the police, the traffic agencies and editorial offices etc. In order to reach nationwide validity VAO deploys Prisma Solution's GIP (represented by Stefan Kollarits), a platform that collects all traffic-system and current traffic information, hiking trails will be added soon. GIP is supposed to replace or at least support the numerous regional platforms. In this way synergies can be exploited and redundant costs will be reduced.
Moderator Bernhard Engleder sees a possibility that the Austrian pilot project will be expanded to neighbouring regions as a next step.
