The project SIMPLE (Sicurezza ferroviaria e Infrastruttura per la Mobilità applicate ai Passaggi a LivEllo) is placed into the category that pertains to the "Districts Regional Technology", in particular "District for rail technology, high speed network security." Objective of the project is the integration of technologies and services belonging to different sectors (rail, urban mobility). SIMPLE allows you to create synergies, at regional level, between the railway and other production systems, such as computer systems and advanced communications. SIMPLE also integrates the rail system with the dynamics of urban mobility, providing security services in the railway sector and useful information to the optimization of traffic flow for the road, with obvious advantages in terms of environmental impact.
SIMPLE aims at an integrated and secure railway level crossings in the Smart City, while providing value-added services to citizens regarding urban mobility. the system
SIMPLE now consists of two main components: one directed purely to the aspects of safety of the level crossing and the other concerning the collection of data on mobility in neighbouring metropolitan streets and the provision of related services, including, for example signalling, via variable message signs (VMS), the driver of alternative routes to those along which there is a level crossing closed.
SIMPLE is composed of:
SIMPLE is a "System of Systems" (System of Systems - SoS), in which each system includes subsystems and systems dedicated to perform complex functions for specific problems. The interaction between systems through appropriate platforms for communication and data exchange finally allows the creation of services with higher value than the sum of the individual components.
SIMPLE is an excellent example of a system that performs a specific function: monitoring level crossings, integrated in the wider ecosystem management of urban road network in order to offer new features.
