Data, Tools & Services in Core Pilot Cities

SynchroniCity Baseline Services

 

  • Route calculation: Routing service that allows citizens to execute queries to find routes, bus /taxi stops, city bikes, bicycle routes. On top of it, it also displays (triggers) disruption info and perform itinerary planning.
  • Parking estimator: Service that estimates the probability of finding a free parking lot over a particular area in the city for a given time window (up to one hour time ahead), based on the information gathered of both current and historical values.
  • Traffic flow estimation: Service that estimates the intensity of traffic for the next minutes/hours based on the information gathered from both current and historical values.
  • Map visualization: Graphical user interface that provides end-users with a simple and user-friendly visualization (on a map) of the devices/context entities available across the different Reference Zones.
  • Time series visualization: Graphical user interface that provides end-users a simple and user-friendly visualization of the evolution of the context entities’ information throughout time.

SynchroniCity Data Models

Data Type

DesCription

SynchroniCity Data Model

Noise level

It represents an observation of those parameters that estimate noise pressure levels at a certain place and time

Air quality data

It represents an observation of air quality conditions at a certain place and time

Public Transport Fleet Vehicles

Real time tracking of the vehicles that are used for public transportation (buses, trains, etc.)

Municipality vehicles location and speed

Real time tracking of the vehicles from municipality services (service, waste collectors, etc.)

Cyclists

Cyclists that are approaching one of the intersections / sensors in scope:
– Real-time through sensors

Cyclists

Cyclists that are approaching one of the intersections / sensors in scope:
– Historical through other pilots (still under investigation due to GDPR issues)

Points of interest (POIs) data

harmonised geographic description of a Point of Interest

City Event

Events happening in the city (concerts, games, etc.)

Traffic constraints

Temporary traffic constraints (scheduled events, accidents, etc.)

ParkingSpot

Bus line

a bus line in which there are bus stops (mandatory) and buses (optional)

Traffic Flow Observed

This modelling offers the description of a set of attributes related to traffic flow in a city (identifier, type, location, dateModified, dateObserved, intensity and occupancy)

weather conditions

It represents an observation of weather conditions at a certain place and time
