INTELLIGENT TRANSPORTATION


 Connected Vehicle technology is one such essential service of the Smart City


tenance management not only provides decision support, but also provides the required business justification for invest- ment in this important area.


CONNECTED VEHICLE SERVICES In the Smart City, Connected Vehicle tech- nology will be applied to private cars, freight vehicles, transit vehicles and vehi- cles that provide mobility on demand


“A Smart City will feature considerable investment in infrastructure and advanced technologies that must be maintained, tracked and managed beyond the initial implementation”


and apply consistent maintenance stand- ards in a timely manner. The lifecycle cost of services can be thought of as a “whale- shaped” investment with the head of the “whale” representing the initial capital investment and the “whale tail” represent- ing operations and maintenance invest- ment. One of the challenges encountered in the past regarding advanced transporta- tion technologies is allocation of resources to the whale tail. Good asset and main-

services such as Uber, Lyft, taxis, and para- transit. A range of services will be provided to Smart City citizens and visitors that will support information delivery to and extrac- tion of probe data from the vehicle. In the longer-term this probe data could eclipse the use of infrastructure-based sensors.


CONNECTED, INVOLVED CITIZEN SERVICES This group of services involves the use of smartphone and other communication


technologies to establish and maintain two-way communications with Smart City citizens (or Smart Citizens, perhaps). Infor- mation delivered to the citizen could take the form of traveler information or the con- nection could be used to support more efficient use of government services.


INTEGRATED ELECTRONIC PAYMENT SERVICES Payment for transportation services within the Smart City will be facilitated through a range of electronic payment services. These will be supported by an integrated citywide electronic payment system that addresses tolls, transit tickets and parking fees. It is also likely that this citywide system will also support payment for government services.


SMART GRID, ROADWAY ELECTRIFICATION AND ELECTRIC VEHICLE SERVICES This involves electrification of vehicles and the establishment of a network of charging points to enable the Electric Vehicle to have the same range as gasoline powered vehi- cles. This will require that Electric Vehicle charging points become as ubiquitous as
