GEWI would like to thank everyone involved in hosting and attending our first ever North American Traffic Technologies Tour. Topics included technologies that are used around the world for location referencing and harmonization, data exchange between systems, next generation of real-time data for traffic navigation, and data exchange for connected vehicles/infrastructure projects. We had many requests from locations and attendees we were unable to honor, so please look for a follow-up webinar to be held in January 2011. If you’d like to receive notification of this event, register for the GEWI newsletter at www.gewi.com.Read More

One of the ongoing benefits to GEWI clients is the continual improvement of the TIC product.
Every week, GEWI engineers release a new developmental version of the TIC3 software which includes new features. These releases are tested and then issued as new production versions about 4 times per year.
The items included in each of these releases are a summary of new features or enhancements that have been requested by TIC clients worldwide. These new features are available at no additional cost to licensed TIC clients beyond the standard support and maintenaince.
A few new features include: the ability to assign confidence levels to various types of data, deeper map zoom levels (useful for the user to recognize the traffic situation on special locations where many roads are within a small area), tile re-sizing and enhanced caching of network tiles to improve performance, and new labels for highway junctions.Read More
GEWI has devised a unique solution to the challenge of harmonizing location references between systems and data sets. With this solution, multiple location references can be harmonized.
Objects in TIC3 can be referenced by the most popular location referencing methods such as geographical position (lat, long), TMC location, distance marker, AGORA-C and OpenLR. TIC3 locations are used for the internal representation of each location to provide harmonization between the other location referencing methods.
This means, regardless of which location referencing system is used, TIC3 is able to cross reference this data. Each referencing method will be referenced to a TIC3 Location and back to each referencing method. This makes it possible to now cross reference between any one or more referencing methods.Read More
TIC3 can be used to reference all objects to road network and areas. As a network digital map data in GDF 3.0 format from Tele Atlas and NAVTEQ can be used. TIC also features the capability to reference objects to multiple road networks, including ESRI shape files and custom networks.Read More
In the US, the Vehicle to Infrastructure initiative is called IntelliDrive. In Europe, a similar project is underway called DIAMANT. This project involves dynamic information and applications for retaining mobility by using adaptive networks and telematics infrastrucure. TIC is used in this project to collect traffic events, link speed, variable message signs and roadwork from the road network. From the vehicle, TIC collects GPS position plus heading, speed and status of brakes, lights, and other systems.Read More
