Optymod’Lyon, predictive and real time multimodal trip planner including Public Transportation and Freight
The Optymod’ Lyon Project was launch to develop a platform for three innovative services:
- Improvement of road traffic information by introducing traffic predictions in the trip calculations
- Development of an urban navigator on smartphone fed with real time Information of all transport modes: this application contains navigation features such as trip calculation or information on transport around the user’s position
- Development of a navigation assistant on mobile phone for urban freight operators integrating road traffic conditions, road characteristics, availability of delivery places (real time & predictive analytics – one hour ahead) allowing optimized freight delivery operations (planning of services)
Optymod’Lyon is a Public-Private cooperation, between the Lyon Metropole (Greater Lyon) and 12 private & public partners: CITYWAY, Autoroute Traffic, Orange Business Systems, Renault trucks…
Cityway’s missions within this project were to deliver:
- A real-time transport database; the creation of a coherent platform from heterogeneous data and the homogenization of different mapping references.
- A multimodal trip planner with all transport modes (including Transit, private car, walking, bike…): real time, predictive historical and scheduled data
- A personal travel assistant, allowing for on trip route updates and recalculations using the position of the user.
The Optymod’ application also includes, besides multimodal/intermodal real-time & predictive trip planning,
- real-time and predictive (up to 60 minutes) information on road traffic conditions.
- information on disruptions in public transport and road traffic. This information is dynamically integrated into trip planning.
- Taxi service : information on available taxis in the area, characteristics for each taxi (kind of vehicule, payment methods accepted…)
- A multimodal data repository developed by Cityway and made of
- 13 theoretical databases
- 12 real time data feeds
- A real time multimodal/intermodal trip planner developed by Cityway
Real-time treatment of data (control/testing/dissemination) of about 9,700,000 real-time data/day with, for the data presented to the end user, a refreshment every minute.
