Sustainable Mobility: the new goal of the Public Administration.

The World Business Council for Sustainable Development defines it thus: “sustainable Mobility is about giving people the opportunity to move in freedom, to communicate and establish relationships without ever losing sight of the human aspect and the environment, today and in the future”.

From the new millennium onwards, the synthesis of the delegations and the objectives assigned to local authority managers for Transport and the environment is combined with the expression Sustainable Mobility.

Since then, the initiatives and the most important actions for a sustainable mobility have included investment in infrastructure (motorways, roads, ring roads, railway lines) and those for the increase and the optimization of transport services, with particular attention to the reduction of traffic and air pollution.

Custom-made software to support sustainable mobility.

Products and software services to improve strategies, facilitate the sharing and launching of truly effective sustainable mobility.

The software products and services participated in the theme of sustainable mobility as useful tools for the monitoring and control of territorial areas (parking and ZTL), or to improve and propose new ways of use of means of transport (car sharing).

With a view to sustainable mobility, local authorities are now calling for a communication to promote the use of environmentally friendly transport solutions and alternatives to private cars. Since users are now habitually using navigation apps that offer traffic information according to the user’s itinerary.

In our opinion, the information services have contributed little or no relevance to the sustainability of mobility, focusing on the production of radio news and mobile applications.

The IMA platform: an effective tool for data integration.

Flexibility, customised solutions and data management: the benefits of a mobility-related software solution.

Duel’S IMA platform, thanks to the simultaneous management of multiple graphs relating to different transport services, facilitates data integration and correlation between events. It allows you to automatically generate information to citizens, alert to operators of transport, and integrate commands for remote control of peripheral systems (traffic lights, ZTL, parking lots, variable message panels, thanks to the wide availability of hardware interfaces and communication protocols.

The flexibility of configuration and the opportunity to install the IMA platform in cloud mode provide local authority mobility managers with a simple and immediately available solution to build a complex control centre for local transport infrastructure and services.

The ability of the platform to process multimedia content (data, text, audio, video) and deploy them on different channels (web, newspapers, radio, tv) to configure the control Centre as a Centre for the dissemination of traffic information, and intermodal mobility.

PROJECTS

Planning and management of the information mobility center: “Muoversi in Campania”

Duel has overseen the realization of the Campania Info-Mobility Services Center with the design, installation, integration and tuning of hardware and software components of the technological platform, according to the IMA system architecture.  Duel has also designed, installed and maintained a network of cameras to monitor the regional territory roads.

Multimodal Travel Planner

Duel has realized the Multimodal Travel Planner, a software application that offers high-level functionality for the planning and organization of journeys involving the use of public transportation, particularly, on road and rail.  The application uses the functionalities of the IMA platform adopted by the Service Center.

Design and installation of camera networks in the Lazio Region

Duel has been responsible for the design and installation of camera networks for road traffic monitoring. In addition to the normal counting of vehicles and traffic levels, the system is able, in an automatic way and in real time, to signal the occurrence of road traffic events, such as accidents involving fires in tunnels.

Installation of IMA platform for Rome Info-Mobility Center.

Duel realized the first Multimedia Production Center with specialized assistance services for Information  Systems . Therefore, we produced television news for LA7 and expanded the database of 3D animated contributions for the editing of TV traffic bulletins.
