Road network performance analysis

VARIABLE MESSAGE SIGN COMMUNICATION

Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) is a NSW State Government agency that is responsible for delivering the essential frontline services to people who use roads, harbours and waterways. RMS strive to make it easier for people to move around using various transport modes, including public transport (bus and ferry), cycling, walking, and motor vehicles. 

RMS uses Variable Message Signs (VMS) to communicate traffic information and road conditions to road users, so they can make informed decisions about their journey. 
 

TRAVEL TIME PREDICTION SERVICE

RMS needed to provide road users with data to plan their journey, at an accurately low cost. Due to limited traffic data and black spots on the road network, this was particularly difficult to coordinate.

NGIS implemented Google's crowd-sourced information in order to calculate live journey times. Google Maps web services was integrated into the VMS publishing environment. RMS now has the capabilities to store the Google journey information onto their off-line database for analysis and utilised in future planning. This solution provides fast, accurate and relevant results for an affordable cost and at greater geographic coverage to the organisation.
