World Bank & TDCC, Ulaanbaatar
The World Bank contracted VIA's services to provide specialized technical and analytical support for the Bank’s urban transport technical assistance program in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. We are advising the Transportation Department of the Capital City on the implementation of a new Bus Management System that provides real-time data and analytics for managing bus operations, planning, and service delivery supervision, as well as for user’s trip planning.
VIA Analytics and Transports Metropolitans de Barcelona partnered to analyze the effects of possible operational improvements in their recently deployed high performance bus network: "la Noxa Xarxa". Using detailed simulations of lines H6, V7, and H8, the VIA Analytics team showed that small modifications to the algorithms behind the on-board bus control system could result in significant reliability gains.
Generalitat de catalunya & Rodalies
The Secretary of Infrastructures and Sustainability at the Catalan government, the Generalitat de Catalunya, contracted VIA to test our AVI system in the context of their regional commuter rail: Rodalies de Catalunya. We successfully used cheap off-the-shelf hardware to monitor the operations of the equipped trains both in real-time and at a historical level. We also developed inexpensive systems to measure the arrival and departure times at stops with no GPS coverage. The test ran successfully for over half a year, collecting thousands of arrivals and departures in 5 different lines. The results of the study were presented in the Smart City Expo 2015, Barcelona.
