Centralised ITS - Omnia


Centralized Smart City Software System - OMNIA

A state-of-the-art solution for the integrated road transport environment, OMNIA is a homogeneous and user-friendly system that provides access to a wide range of applications. Modular and scalable, it can be successfully adopted for large-scale systems with many applications already installed as well as for cities and regions at an early stage of ITS development.

Key Features

  • Integrated Environment

    OMNIA offers a high level framework which provides a single access point for all the component systems and support for the whole life cycle of a system: implementation, operation, updating and planning.

  • Any ITS Application Can Be Simply ‘Plugged In’

    OMNIA’s open architecture means that any ITS application (Urban Traffic Control, Public Transport, Parking, Streetlights, VMS, etc) can be integrated within the platform, independently of the supplier or technology.

  • Tailored To Your Specific Needs

    OMNIA enables any city or region to build its own ‘made to measure’ ITS environment. It is possible to add new ITS applications when required and also to modify the services associated with existing applications.

  • Easy-To-Use Graphic Interface

    One of OMNIA’s strongest features is the exceptionally flexible and user-friendly graphical interface which is also multilingual. The clear graphics allow rapid and intuitive interpretation of the real-time status of the network. An operator can view single or multiple windows, and zoom in for full details of any of the systems.

  • Distributed Databases

    The platform collects real time data and uses it not only to manage operations but also to model and forecast mobility demand. This gives all applications access to high quality data, which is also available to operators and city managers for their strategic planning. The DBs themselves remain independent in order to keep the system open and flexible.

  • Embedded Traffic Monitoring

    OMNIA offers embedded functionalities for advanced traffic monitoring which includes traffic data and system component diagnostics. All the traffic measures and related data along with diagnostic status reports are gathered and stored in the central system archive together with their estimated statistical profiles for easy availability.

Key Benefits

A system which starts small and simple, can in time grow large, both in terms of functions and area coverage.

  • Suited to different organisational models

    • A centralised organisation will use OMNIA as the common access point for surveillance, monitoring and control of all applications.

    • A de-centralised organisation will give responsibility to the operators of any group of “single systems” (i.e. UTC, PT, Parking, etc.), while OMNIA ensures interoperability and coordination.

    • Mixed models are also feasible

  • Cost effective operations

    • The availability of a comprehensive set of data makes it easy to optimise operations, understand mobility needs, and plan future enhancements.

    • Real time modelling and forecasting functions which enhance all existing and future systems

  • Local presence

    • Systems developed through local collaborations ensure that the system is adapted to local requirements, standards. OMNIA benefits from this experience and incorporates all outcomes (e.g. protocols, standards, programming languages, etc.).
