Tecnalia has presented Smart Mobility Lab, a service that supports the design of new ITS solutions based on a singular infrastructure that allows quick prototyping of intelligent traffic management applications and systems in urban and suburban areas. An example of the solutions that Smart Mobility Lab can offer is the new mobile application SML, available on Android and Blackberry, which receives the traffic information from the basque roads real-time: accidents, congestion, weather information and traffic cameras.
This information is sent personalized, sending only the data from the area that the user selects: the commonly taken routes or the area surrounding the current position each moment.
The application allows the configuration of the type of alerts that will be received (accidents, jams, construction work, etc.) and the level from which to start receiving the alerts (slow, stopped, etc.). The notices can be visual or with sound, and you can also receive the alerts by email.
The system is designed to optimize the data that is consumed and the use of battery as the user moves.
