topXview™ Software Platform - The Nerve Center of TMC

The Traffic Management Center – TMC (also known as Traffic Control Center – TCC) is the nerve center or the hub of most freeway, corridor or tunnel management systems. It is the place where data from the system is collected and processed, fused with other operational and control data, synthesized to produce "information", and distributed to stakeholders (media, other agencies, traveling public, other stakeholders, modal interests).

TMC staff uses this information to monitor the operation of the traffic network and to initiate control strategies that affect changes in the operation of the traffic network.

It has the critical role in the successful operation of a traffic management system (and perhaps the broader surface transportation network)

Just like it is impossible to use hardware resources of any computer server without operating system and proper software applications, or process big amounts of data without proper database engine, it is impossible to have efficient TMC without proper TMC software platform.

topXview™ Urban Suite

Use the synergy provided by complete integration of all of your ITS services

City centers are limited in space and significant improvements in road infrastructure are impossible. Mobility is an essential foundation for progress of modern civilization. topXview™ implements the ultimate functionality required for setting up the efficient and intelligent environment for urban traffic management. This includes completely integrated urban management systems providing information sharing, automatic interaction between systems, efficient traffic management and efficient incident management, which will finally lead to smoother and more efficient and coordinated city traffic. Situation Management is the uttermost requirement for a city traffic management. Today it implies a high level of integration of implemented systems in order to make situation management more efficient and faster.
Control Center Staff need an efficient and interactive tool for situation management through automatic procedures execution. topXview™ traffic management software provides a complete management interface for any urban sub-system and integrates their functions in common management environment. It does not duplicate existing functions of particular subsystems, rather upgrades and complements them – in addition to common subsystems shared among interurban, tunnel and urban suite such as Traffic Control and Management or CCTV module, most important modules specific for urban traffic management are:



ADAPTIVE TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT
topXview™ implements adaptive management of intersections or integrates existing adaptive systems (for example SCATS) thus enabling operation of traffic management plans as a part of situation management system. Information available from existing systems (for example traffic density and fl ow) will be used for travel time prediction or public transport.

TRAVEL TIME INFORMATION - based on available traffic data, topXview™ uses its own algorithms based on neural networks to predict travel times and allows dissemination of these predictions on information displays that are part of the system, or public web site.

PUBLIC TRANSPORT MANAGEMENT
topXview™ Public Transport Management module combines automatic Vehicle Location and Identification system, Fleet Management system, Contactless Payment and Ticketing system, and Traveler Information system.
Automatic monitoring of vehicle arrival at the destination based on the timetable supported by accurate predictions of the required travel time enables the public transport selective prioritization management which is the basic prerequisite for the optimization of public transport without effect on private transport.
The statistical data monitoring (counting and tracking the number of passengers in each vehicle, average waiting time at the stop, etc.), together with the off-line data processing and report creating, is the integral part of the application that puts topXview™ Public Traffic Management at the top of most-wanted systems in the industry.

PARKING MANAGEMENT - topXview™ Parking System Management module capabilities include monitoring and reporting the current and projected parking availability, statistical data analysis, and parking lot capacity planning. topXview™ platform integration concept allows for continuous prediction of the number of parking spots available at each parking lot based on the arrival and departure trends and the time it takes the information to get from the parking pace to the display at the entrance. Integrating existing and future parking systems, regardless of the manufacturer and communication procedures, is quick and easy due to topXview™ platform's universal communication modules.

Highway Suite

Two most important tasks for today’s Highway Traffic Management are to enable safer and more fluent traffic through comprehensive utilization of infrastructure.
topXview™ traffic management software provides a complete management interface for any interurban subsystem and integrates their functions in common management environment.

Highway suite encompasses modules to operate each subsystem deployed by the road though that modules are only base of the system, as full capability is achieved through integration.

In order to completely utilize traffic infrastructure and capitalize on it by increasing safety and smoothness of traffic flow, a number of complex services based on interaction of different subsystems should be used, and they are available in form of topXview™ modules:

  • Alarm Management
  • Incident and Situation Management
  • Ramp Metering
  • Traffic Harmonization Services
  • Algorithmic Traffic Flow Incident Detection
  • Automatic Vehicle Location
  • Travel Route Management
  • Public Information Web Service
  • Maintenance Management
  • Centre to Centre (C2C) Communication & Coordination

Tunnel Suite

Unique approach of same topXview™ platform being use both for Traffic Management System (TMS) and traditional Tunnel SCADA (e.g. “Power SCADA”) enables full utilization of infrastructure through integration of all subsystems thus increasing tunnel traffic safety and enabling smoother traffic. This principle also avoids integration conflicts between two platforms traditionally used (TMS and SCADA) thus directly reducing implementation time and cost.

Tunnels present an increased hazard environment even in ideal conditions. Today’s tunnels safety management standards require complete integration of all installed traffic and safety subsystems, having a reliable emergency situation response system. Tunnels solution based on topXview™ platform features extensive support for integration of all existing tunnel systems enabling centralized management and prompt reaction to any unexpected incident. Advanced system tools (alarm management, incident detection, interactive situation and incident management, designer tools, premium video management, etc.) show their best in demanding tunnel applications providing the user with the most efficient means of achieving superior security that is expected in today’s tunnels.
