GeoSence elaborates on geofencing solutions aiming at improving traffic flow, safety, and air quality. Challenges on how to obtain user acceptance and useful improvements are addressed.
This use case addresses geofencing in public procurement, i.e., how to describe requirements for geofencing functionality and how to follow up compliance to the requirements stated in the contract between the city and a traffic operator. The aim is to ensure that speed limits are being respected especially around areas where vulnerable road users are e.g., nearby schools. Tests will be conducted with vehicles for Special Transport Services, which serve people with disabilities. Lower speed zones than the regulated speed limited, will be set up as geofences in the traffic operators fleet management system, and equipment will be installed in the vehicles to support the drivers not to override the speed limit in these zones. The demonstration will enable user studies to evaluate drivers’ experiences during and after the usage of the speed limiting equipment.
In GeoSence, Stockholm will investigate how a new innovative way of working could be developed to deploy geofencing and other connected solutions in their daily traffic planning/management operations. This will be done by mapping relevant existing processes including issuance, updates of local traffic rules, network editing, create new routines/processes regarding data management (e.g. sharing, storage, GDPR, data input from sensors, etc.) for all transport modes (e.g. goods, micro-mobility, , service vehicles) mainly for static geofencing but also guidelines for what is needed to be done to handle data management of dynamic and smart geofencing). Stockholm will be the first demonstrator fully adopting and integrating the geofencing strategic implementation guidelines.
