Conference on public intelligent transportation systems

On 6 May GMV attended the Conference on public intelligent transportation systems, organized by ITS España and held in Barcelona’s Hotel Barcelo Sants.

The day-long conference covered all areas related to public transport systems, such as network planning systems, management information and reporting, ticketing, fleet management systems, passenger information systems, onboard security systems and complementary added-value technologies.

Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), playing an increasingly important role on our roads, are one of the standout features making our public transport a worldwide benchmark of recognized prestige.

As well as sponsoring the event, GMV also took part in the session dealing with intermodality in the new fleet management systems; Alfredo Martin Olalla gave a paper called “Intermodality in ITS Systems Information”. As project manager, his paper focused on the specific experience of GMV’s multi-fleet management system provided for Barcelona’s metropolitan transport authority (Autoritat Transport Metropolitá: ATM).

Alfredo Martín has collaborated on several occasions with ITS España, both in congresses and in contents of ITS España’s own review. In December 2006 the review published one of his articles on the Barcelona urban bus system supplied by GMV to TMB (Transports Municipals de Barcelona), written in collaboration with Alberto Fonseca Mallol of TMB, as respective project managers of GMV and TMB. -Ref. “On board system of Information to the user in TMB Barcelona Fleet”.
