When do I need urbic?
With its analysis options, urbic® can provide support in many areas relating to public transport acceleration. The answers which urbic® can provide to the typical questions that arise in day-to-day traffic planning are given in the following.
urbic® enables an immediate and exact analysis of the traffic quality in accordance with the handbook for assessment of road traffic installations (HBS) for public transport means of transport. This helps to identify the down time of ÖPNV trips on TLS, traverse lines and entire routes. Thereafter, the elements (TLS, lines, routes) that would bring the most benefit can be selected for acceleration.
Besides the tabular result view, urbic® also offers diagrams and geo-based map displays. With the help of these documents, even the layman can identify where there is actually a need for action in public transport.
When an acceleration measure is concluded, urbic® can document the quality status at-tained. urbic® permanently monitors the quality level of each individual TLS and informs the operator about any deviations. This means that quality lapses are currently identified within 24 hours. With urbic®, the quality of acceleration measures is ensured in the long term. Newcomers to urbic® can immediately analyse the current traffic quality at TLS with urbic® and compare the values with those documented earlier. If the analysis by urbic® confirms the values then everything is in order. If this is not the case, a readjustment is advisable.
There are basically two reasons why reporting points are missing in an TLS memory: Firstly, errors in the TLS may cause reporting points not to appear. Secondly, errors in the vehicles may cause reporting points not to appear. In both cases, urbic® has a solution ready, as detailed in the following two points.
The radio reception quality in every approach of an TLS can be analysed using urbic®. This makes it possible to draw absolutely certain conclusions about the function of the TLS with regard to public transport acceleration.
urbic® also analyses the transmission quality of each individual public transport vehicle. Vehicles whose transmission quality displays deviations from the standard on multiple occasions can then be specifically directed to the workshop for fault repair.
