The Dutch municipality wishes to take on the challenge of using information from the underlying traffic systems to improve facilitate and technically manage the road network. For these purposes their technology partner Technolution will develop the new ‘Deventer verkeersInformatieSysteem’ (Deventer traffic Information System) or DevIS based on the Technolution’s MobiMaestro platform. Initial delivery of DevIS is scheduled for spring 2011. Dynamic Traffic Information DevIS provides road users with up-to-date information about the traffic situation in Deventer via electronic signs at the side of the road which are updated via the Internet.

DevIS can anticipate traffic processes enabling more efficient usage of the road network in the area between Apeldoorn Deventer and Zutphen. For example if bridges are raised or an accident occurs DevIS offers alternative routes. For these purposes new traffic scenarios will be put in place in combination with existing traffic systems such as traffic-light systems route-information signs and in the future a dynamic parking system. In addition new systems can easily be added later enabling expansion of the network over time for example with dynamic route-information systems or connections with in-vehicle systems. DevIS based on MobiMaestro® Technolution’s MobiMaestro platform provides the basis for DevIS.

This platform is then tailor-made to suit the needs of the Municipality of Deventer allowing goal-oriented road-network management. This technology has already proved its value in parking management systems and traffic regulation systems for amongst other clients the Municipality of Rotterdam. DevIS was made possible by contributions by the Province of Overijssel.
