Moscow - St. Petersburg motorway under close surveillance with @way
The Franco-Russian team responsible for the viability, safety, and traffic information system of this section of motorway has risen to the challenge of linking the Russian capital to the country's second city and facilitating traffic flow in a heavily frequented area.
Entrusted with the installation of the traffic management platform, Mobility delivered to Avtodor, on 3 October 2016, its @way licence for section 5, in the Vyshny Volochek area. Starting from this date, the Mobility team took 75 days to link @way to the road fixtures, working in snowy conditions at temperatures as low as -32°C.
Variable message signs, PTZ cameras, video walls, traffic count points for Traficolor, traffic counts at toll stations, weather stations, automatic incident detection, vehicle tracking, telephone and webmail systems: the principal @way interfaces were delivered on 26 December 2016. Operators were able to launch operations, receiving live alerts, creating event and maintenance sheets, generating action plans and reports, and even planning forthcoming maintenance and repair work, all with the benefit of fully automated rules and calculations.
In 2017, the Mobility teams will face new challenges, starting with the integration of complete redundancy between sections 0 and 5, with a view to tackling other sections at a later stage.
