The scope of SP3 was to assess existing capacities (technologies, procedures, rules and policies, resources, etc.) which were integrated within the four main demonstrations or within the smaller and more specific satellite demonstrations. SP3 ensured that these capacities’ integration took into account the very nature of mass transit operation, characterized by many access points, frequent stops, large geographical areas to cover, millions of passengers and large fleet of vehicles of different type (bus, tramway, metro). At the same time, it made sure that the best practices from the railway and bus markets were taken into account and that state-of-the art technologies coming from other related industries – such as telecom, IT, security, etc. – were considered. As the project developed a holistic view, where new systems had to interface seamlessly with existing capacities in order to create a system of system, gaps between new and old capacities have been identified and eliminated.
WP31 – Preparedness: Developing studies, procedure and applied handbooks for managing and planning operations.
