The needs of the London Borough of Southwark are similar to those of Ghent, both are in need of a general overview based on all available mobility data. In the replication process, the emphasis is on traffic management with a dashboard that is primarily intended for traffic managers and to a lesser extent for citizens.
The London Borough of Southwark in South London forms part of Inner London and is connected by bridges across the River Thames to the City of London. It is governed by Southwark London Borough Council.
The part of the South Bank within the borough is home to London Bridge terminus station and the attractions of The Shard, Tate Modern, Shakespeare’s Globe and Borough Market that are the largest of the venues in Southwark to draw domestic and international tourism. Read more on Wikipedia
Real-time traffic monitoring
TMaaS focuses in Southwark on a small area of major arterial roads where additional real-time monitoring is required. In order to be able to make a correct estimate of the traffic situations, the aim is to map out all the different modes of transport.
How do the different modes behave when a traffic jam occurs?
