    Traffic management system in the city of Rijeka

    Trans Motauto World, Vol. 7 (2022), Issue 3, pg(s) 115-119

    This article analyzes examples of good traffic management practices in several European cities. The practices analyzed relate to providing more accurate information about public transport arrivals, optimizing demand for crosswalks, reducing congestion in urban areas, and reducing demand for trips to parking lots in the city center. Smart mobility projects such as CEKOM Connected Traf fic create high-quality urban transport solutions and promote innovative, sustainable, clean and energy-efficient transport modes. The aim of this paper is to present the positive results of different traffic management methods that lead to better traffic flow, less congestion, lower primary energy consumption and less pollutant emissions.
    The activities of this scientific research project are related to the development of innovative urban and multimodal solutions in the city of Rijeka. The primary outcome indicator will be a platform for aggregating data for urban mobility and transport decision making. The scope of the platform envisions more efficient use of public-private infrastructure, resources, and assets in the field of transport. In addition, it was necessary to accurately measure traffic, meteorological and environmental parameters in the city of Rijeka to protect the environment, increase safety and achieve sustainability of the transport system in the urban area.
    As part of the research activities of the Connected Traffic project, a prototype solution for traffic simulations has been developed. The aim of the simulations is to show how the use of innovative methods in the context of intelligent solutions can manage traffic in urban areas. The purpose of the simulation is to test innovative scenarios and standard operating procedures for decision support.

    Transferium Chomutov

    Trans Motauto World, Vol. 6 (2021), Issue 4, pg(s) 138-141

    This paper deals with passenger railway transport accessibility of the city of Chomutov, Czech Republic. The paper presents a conceptual study of a new transportation hub – the Transferium. Based on the unsuitable accessibility of the existing railway station, the location of a new railway station is proposed. The paper addresses the transport and transit demands of the new railway station in the context of current and future traffic. Furthermore, the urban integration of the new station and the surrounding urban space is proposed, and last but not least, the construction and technical context is presented.

    Alternative fuels for public transport vehicles – actual trends

    Trans Motauto World, Vol. 5 (2020), Issue 3, pg(s) 105-107

    Strategies for sustainable transport, and consequently sustainable mobility, require the use of cleaner vehicles without harmful emissions. The use of alternative fuels contributes to realization of set strategies and different types of alternative fuels are increasingly present in the transport sector. There is great potential in the use of alternative fuels in public transport systems, since this mode of transport plays a very important role in sustainable mobility. The aim is to replace the conventional bus fleets with vehicles with newer and cleaner technologies. Within this paper, alternative types of fuels used in public bus transport will be presented, as well as practical examples of the application of these modes of transport.

  • EVALUATION OF THE EFFECTIVENESS OF LIBERALIZATION OF THE RAIL FREIGHT MARKET IN SLOVAKIA

    Machines. Technologies. Materials., Vol. 9 (2015), Issue 10, pg(s) 29-32

    Actual problems from the point of view of sustainable transport are limited capacity and level of transport infrastructure and major differences between the capacity and quality of transport infrastructure in western and eastern Europe. Subvention of multi-modal chains in the country is highly differentiated from high subvention towards environmentally friendly mode of transport to very little subvention from the state. The paper deals with legislation relative to conditions of the railway freight transport market liberalisation structure of international documents and national law, conditions of access companies to transport infrastructure and business conditions in the railway transport market. In Slovak republic it was changed of charging schemes for rail infrastructure from 1.1. 2011. We have researched impact this change to modal split. The paper presents measures to improve competitiveness of railway freight transport.
