The National Association of Radio Distress-Signalling and Info Communications (RSOE), has joined the PLOTO consortium, forming a partnership with the Freeport of Budapest Logistics Ltd (BSZL), the Hungarian State Railway Company (MÁV), and the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, Department of Transportation Technology and Economics (BME) to collaborate on the Hungarian pilot site.

RSOE holds a crucial role in Hungary as a provider of River Information Services (RIS) and Port Management Information Systems. Additionally, RSOE operates the Emergency and Disaster Information Service (EDIS), which is designed to monitor, document, and analyse various emergency and disaster events worldwide. Their services involve displaying collected information on diverse user interfaces and notifying customers about selected events. The unique capabilities of RSOE align well with the primary objectives of the PLOTO project, particularly in the areas of developing smart, green, sustainable, climate-resilient, and biodiversity-friendly infrastructure. This partnership was formed to enhance infrastructure reliability, improve performance, and bolster the overall resilience of the transport system, thus creating a climate-resilient infrastructure system. RSOE is dedicated to contributing to the realization of the project’s goals in these domains.

RSOE brings to the table more than two decades of experience in successfully achieving project goals. Their extensive knowledge and expertise in the relevant areas are valuable assets for the PLOTO project. Through participation in PLOTO, they aim to further expand their knowledge of transport and information systems and sustainable and climate-resilient infrastructure.

RSOE’s ultimate aim is to further the main goal of the project, which involves the deployment and assessment of predictive modelling, environmentally sustainable, and emerging digital technologies and tools. These efforts will be dedicated to improving the resilience of inland waterways (IWW) against climate change and other extreme events.
