Multimodal GPS piloted in 6 European cities

By News Editor / Updated: 01 Aug 2014
In Vienna, a real-time multimodal route planner was presented in the framework of the In-Time project. The multimodal GPS is being piloted in Brno, Bucharest, Florence, Munich, Oslo and Vienna.
The Antwerp-based company I-Move recently presented its new multimodal satnav application at a launch in Vienna. It was developed in the framework of In-Time, a European project that studies the effect of real-time travel information on mobility behaviour. The multimodal GPS is being piloted in Brno, Bucharest, Florence, Munich, Oslo and Vienna.

The application is based on the recently launched AnyMap Mobile Navigator 2.0 and consists of a user-friendly route planner that involves real-time travel times of public transport, availability of Park and Ride Facilities, available parking spaces, etc. Using these resources, the GPS calculates the fastest multimodal route. It can also calculate the shortest route or the one with the least changes.

When changes occur (for example delays in public transport service or traffic jams) the route is recalculated automatically, taking the users preferences into account.

In-Time is a response to the European ICT PSP second call for proposals 2008, addressing Objective 2.2 ICT - for adaptive urban transport management infrastructure and services. The main focus of In-Time will be with Multimodal Real Time Traffic and Travel Information (RTTI) services provided to drivers and travellers with the goal to reduce drastically energy consumption in urban transport
