Ghent was awarded the ‘Bold Measure Award’ for its Traffic Management As A Service (TMaaS) platform on Friday 21 September during a ceremony in Umeå, Sweden, on the second evening of CIVITAS Forum Conference 2018.
The CIVITAS Awards highlight some of the most ambitious, innovative, and successful sustainable urban mobility work currently being carried out. They provide a prime platform for towns and cities to demonstrate their excellence in the field, both in terms of policymaking and implemented measures, and its winners serve as role models to other towns and cities across Europe, inspiring them in their own initiatives to make cleaner and better urban transport.
The City of Ghent, a TM2.0 member, has created Traffic Management as a Service (TMaaS) as a modular platform that collects urban mobility data from stakeholders and service providers and displays it on a single dashboard. Developed together with the government, industry and universities, the concept is ideal for future traffic centres in small- and medium-sized cities. As a cloud-based platform, no major hardware investments are required. Besides visualisation, TMaaS can interpret the mobility data fed into it via user-defined criteria, while operators can also set their own customized alerts.
The CIVITAS Awards are granted in four categories, with three prizes decided by a five-person jury of mobility experts, public officials and media, and the fourth by the CIVITAS Political Advisory Committee.
CIVITAS is a network of cities for cities dedicated to cleaner, better transport in Europe and beyond. Since it was launched by the European Commission in 2002, the CIVITAS Initiative has tested and implemented over 800 measures and urban transport solutions as part of demonstration projects in more than 80 Living Lab cities Europe-wide.
CIVITAS offers practitioners opportunities to see innovative transport solutions being developed and deployed first-hand, and learn from peers and experts working in the field. CIVITAS nurtures political commitment, new marketable solutions, and offers funding and knowledge exchange with a view to creating growth and better connected, more sustainable transport modes.
