Siemens Mobility is hailing a series of trials in the UK Autodrive pilot in Coventry and Milton Keynes which it says shows its connected solutions work in the real world.
Roadside infrastructure for the Coventry phase of the trial involved the company’s ESCoS roadside units providing the technical platform for vehicles and traffic signal equipment to communicate with each other in real time, enabling a Green Light Optimised Speed Advisory system to be tested when a vehicle is connected to a traffic signal-controlled intersection.
Gary Bray, Senior Product Manager, Sensors & Connected Mobility at Siemens Mobility, explained, “With digitalisation, Siemens Mobility enables mobility operators to make infrastructure intelligent, improve passenger experience and enhance availability.
“We are delighted to provide connected mobility infrastructure for UK Autodrive, to have had the opportunity to test our systems in such a technically challenging live environment, and to showcase them today. The results of this trial build on our work with other connected mobility projects and will make a significant contribution to the further development of our products and systems”.
