Case study - Traffic Control Systems in Denmark

We can adapt traffic control systems to the needs of each city. We have always strived to be at the forefront of the development and implementation of innovative technologies. We improve conditions for road transport using the latest technologies. The Danish city of Esbjerg is also an example of this.

Case study - Traffic Control Systems in Denmark

In the city of Esbjerg, we realized the very first ITS order of this kind in Denmark, including traffic light controllers, software for setting and management, as well as a control center for traffic monitoring and adaptive control of eDaptive traffic and a smart city platform for the administration and management of other smart devices of the transport infrastructure. In this project, the traffic control center combines the connection of light signaling controllers of 4 manufacturers and 5 types of controllers using the OCIT protocol with the connection of other devices using other protocols in a single interface. A really smart approach!

The project includes the delivery of the eDaptiva monitoring and control software platform. It connects 5 types of controllers from different manufacturers using the OCIT protocol and enables their effective management, such as regional control logic, activation of intervention routes or special plans for exceptional traffic situations.

CROSS systems in Esbjerg enable a central preference for urban public transport. Data is transmitted between public transport vehicles and the eDaptiva central control platform. It then transmits commands directly to the traffic light controller via the OCIT 3.0 protocol and enables the system to react immediately to the presence of such a vehicle, e.g. to extend the green light for its smooth passage.

Another pillar of the Danish installation is the commissioning of the parking navigation system, which, thanks to the use of variable guidance signs, will help to easily find your way around parking lots and in parking garages. The project also integrates devices such as traffic counters, bicycle traffic counters, speed measurement, and also controls access to pedestrian or residential zones using retractable posts (so-called bollards). These functions are available from the smart city environment of the Invipo platform, which makes it possible to find a new context across the installed technologies in the city.
