MODUM addresses the environmental footprint in the transport sector by developing a new approach for pro-active demand-responsive management of traffic. This approach enables energy-efficient multi-modal transport choices accommodating dynamic variations, minimising the environmental impact and improving the quality of life in urban environments.
MODUM supports city councils in their efforts to minimise the harmful effects of urban traffic: MODUM helps traffic operators to manage urban traffic more efficiently, and MODUM helps city councils to support their citizens with environmentally conscious multi-modal routing information.
The MODUM system was implemented in two test sites: Nottingham in the UK and Sofia in Bulgaria. Nottingham represents a site with high degree of concentration of traffic control facilities, while Sofia has very few traffic control systems deployed. It is anticipated that the degree of adoption of the MODUM approach in other EU cities will fall in between the adoption appropriate for Nottingham and the adoption appropriate for Sofia.
The MODUM Conference "Building the Bridge from Research to Sustainable Urban Transport Management" has taken place on 24th of September 2014 in Nottingham (UK).
