Advance Information System for the Mobility of People and Vehicles Combine traditional traffic supervision technologies with thelatest available or soon to be available ICT. Data Filtering, Merging and Completion Module. Filtering of data, integration of new types of data that had not traditionally been used in traffic information systems, especially those that allow real-time treatment of information. Development of completion models for missing data coming from the ICTs. Development of data merging models that combine large amounts of data sources unprecedented in the field of traffic. Avanza Competitividad R&D (2010-2012) Program 15. Dynamic ridesharing Point to point instant dynamic ridesharing A pilot test is going on in a city in the Barcelona metropolitan area to share private vehicles to go to the train station located in the closest city. Users can demand the transport just a few minutes in advance. It uses mobile technology and a tracking server. The main challenges of this project are not technological but related to social and security issues. 16. tooPath: Free mobile device tracking system TooPath is the first free tracking system made of 100% freeand open source data and technologies. Real-time tracking of vehicles or persons using GPSsystems. Using free-access mapping data or user-owned mappinginformation (OpenStreetMap). 17. ALSTOM Project Web application that allows the user to locate the position ofall trains that are operating at a given moment. Remote collection of train incidences, that are displayed inreal time using a geographical map (OpenStreetMap) and aweb browser. Its been used for early detection of incidences in AVE andAVANT trains and maintenance planning improvement. 18. Analysis of energy consumption of the tram Measure the energy consumption of a Barcelona tram Evaluate the total savings that would result in no traffic lightstops Using tooPath tracking tool 19. Energy consumption optimization Improve energy efficiency in underground Manless TrainOperation Non linear optimization. Aprox. 7% energy saving L9 is the first metro line without driver in Spain, and one ofthe largest and modern automatic line without driver of theWorld C#, Visual Basic for Applications, CAD automation, Petrinets 20. NZEB. Opti-Sim in Sustainability Co-operative simulator for evaluation, analysis andoptimization of sustainability (environmental, economic andsocial) in order to identify the best solutions for buildingdesign and construction of NZEB (Net Zero EnergyBuildings) 21. APP Rehab Energy efficiency simulator (with web and Smartphoneapplications) for building rehabilitation. It calculates demand and energy consumption of a building,the cost of its rehabilitation and its environmental impact. A tool to detect the best building solutions for energyefficiency in each case of study. 22. e-Catalunya Project Group collaboration, e-participation and socialnetworking platform that enables the CataloniaAutonomic Government to offer collaborativeportal services to different users and professionalgroups. Combines powerful collaboration tools (wiki, blog)with more traditional tools (discussion forum,calendar, distribution list, file archive) Selected for the European eGovernment Awards2009 in the eGovernment enabling administrativeefficiency and effectiveness category 23. City Walking: an app to improve Terrasa citizens healthA solution to promote sports among the population of Terrassa, to improve the health and avoid sedentary life of its citizens.Walking routes are suggested to engage users depending on several parameters such as the distance or time users want to spend, their age, sex and other health parameters.Provides geographic information and POIs of the city, as well as details of commerce and resources that can be discovered along the way.Walked routes can be shared with family or friends and Winner of Living LabsGlobal Awards 2012 for may be available to health specialists so they can the city of Terrassa suggest new customized plans according to patients health.A pilot will be done in the city of Terrassa in collaboration with hHealth care providers.23 24. Data Fusion of the Catalan Health Survey Data fusion was applied to asmall examination-based sample.The objective was to improve theprediction of the CardiovascularDiseases and Diabetes. Colaboration with IDESCAT(Catalan Institut for Statistics) forthe 2006 Catalan Health Survey24 25. BONE Network of Excellence Collaborative environment for the network of excellenceand integration of other collaboration and disseminationtools. Co-leading WP3 - Electronic Communication Tools BONE aims to integrate and disseminate the research onoptical networks and communications that is beingperformed in Europe, as well as to demonstrate the BONE is a Network of Excellence funded by theadvantages in the use of optical technologies over European Commissionelectronic ones in communications networks.through the 7th ICT- Framework Program 25 26.
