Interface for Province of Noord-Holland
Interface to unlock ITS data from traffic control installations
A special Smart Mobility implementation programme has been set up within the province of Noord-Holland, which will be implemented in 2018 and 2019 (with an extension to 2020). This implementation programme aims to contribute to the provincial challenges for mobility, urbanization, energy and economic transition and liveability. The emphasis in mobility is on a transition to smart, clean and safe mobility, where the user is key. The programme looks into which new technologies and innovations that can make a successful contribution to this. The programme consists of four pillars: data and information, vehicle technology, physical and digital infrastructure and Mobility as a Service (Maas). Projects have been worked out for each of these pillars that lead to the execution of studies, conducting tests and trying out pilots in practice.
The province has now set up a testing ground for this on the provincial roads around Schiphol. Within the programme, attention is paid to bicycle, car, freight, bus traffic and shipping. A number of Intelligent Traffic Light Control Systems (iTLCs) have now been put into use within this testing ground.
For a number of ITS test projects within the Smart Mobility implementation programme, including CONCORDA, it is necessary to disclose the ITS data of these iTLCs to third parties, via a standard interface, which transmits the ETSI messages from the iTLCs. The IF2 interface developed on TLEX has been chosen for this purpose. Monotch unlocked the data from roadside equipment and traffic controllers and made the data communication available in ETSI via an IF2 interface for service providers.
The plug and play character of TLEX proved its value, enabling the connected service providers to get access to the data well within the deadlines, and even more importantly, with a minimum of latency and a maximum of security.
