Two MODUM test sites: Nottingham (UK) and Sofia (BG)

Within the MODUM project, the MODUM system was deployed for testing in two field trial sites: Nottingham (UK) and Sofia (BG).

Geographical areas selected for MODUM trial

The geographical areas selected in Nottingham and Sofia for the trial study had been chosen to include areas of high traffic density as well as corridors where multi-modal trips were possible (i.e. where there were public transport services, Park&Ride facilities, cycle lanes, etc.) in order to facilitate any combination of single or multimodality.

The following graphs give an indication of the MODUM trial study areas in Sofia and in Nottingham:

Data availability in the test sites

The MODUM system was suitably adapted to the test sites’ requirements reflecting the real-time data availability in each site. Nottingham represented a site with high degree of concentration of traffic control facilities, while Sofia had 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.

For inclusion into the MODUM multi-agent system the two test-sites offered the following specific data:

Modum

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.
