The ATMS DYNAC system is expandable with innovative functionalities. Some specific functions that significantly improve traffic management are not yet available on the market. As part of the CHARM programme, a pre-commercial procurement (PCP) project is designed to develop these functions.
The PCP project (2012-2017) challenged the market to develop innovative traffic management functions. External companies have developed six new prototypes for incident detection, network management and in-car systems. A process in 3 phases, which ended at the end of August 2017 with six new, innovative and working solutions. These prototypes work with CHARM ATMS DYNAC.
Continuation of prototypes
All new function prototypes come in a certain form and order in the Road Traffic Management Implementation of Rijkswaterstaat and are important building blocks in such projects as Probe Vehicle Data, Floating Car Data and Talking Traffic. More information about a sequel to CHARM PCP will follow at the end of 2018.
If you look at how the six innovative functionalities have been developed in a relatively short time, then I can only be very proud of that
Project partners and contractors
