Surface Intelligent Transport System (SITS) is TfL’s response to growing pressures upon the capacity of London’s road network. SITS will reduce delay by providing the capability for TfL to unlock significant additional capacity on the road network and also allow TfL to prioritise people who are walking, cycling and using buses. The SITS programme will achieve these objectives by realising the following benefits: - faster incident detection enabling rapid and efficient response and resolution; - more effective utilisation of road network capacity to improve the efficiency of people movement; - the ability to be modally targeted in TfL’s management of the road network; and - improved road network information provided to the public, policy makers and operators to improve decision making. TfL believe there is a significant opportunity to improve our understanding of network users’ movements in a cost-effective way through new technology, analytics and data. Following proof of concept work, TfL has identified the possibility of utilising devices on the road network to capture flow data of different transport modes. Video Analytics will fill gaps in demand and flow information across all modes to provide classified counts to feed demand models in real time and is one of the data sources as part of the data roadmap project within the programme. The potential contract resulting from this opportunity will seek to extend current coverage to provide continuous 24/7 multi modal demand data across the London road network, by purchasing a solution to collect data at street level for up to 1,300 monitoring locations.
