Hungarian Public Roads has applied for the call of the ITS Hungary Excellence Award by developing the TN-ITS service, and has won this May. In TN-ITS we have tried to share static road information data in a harmonic way. TN-ITS GO is a set of methodologies, processes/solutions that support the implementation of spatial data exchange through the develoment of ITS applications. Hungarian Public Roads joined the initiation in 2018. Previously, the service was developed in 4 countries, which together with us expanded to 6 more countries. We are the first of the new member states to have the standardized data exchange protocol available. By increasing the number of participating member countries and partners, the TN-ITS service can make a significant contribution to improving cross-country interoperability by developing a harmonized service.…

The CROCODILE acronym comes from “Cooperation of Road Operators for COnsistent and Dynamic Information Level”m, and it is a solution for exchanging information in a uniform and dynamic way. The first phase of international cooperation took place between 2013 and 2015, and in 2016, we received support for the implementation of the second phase. The work of this was the maximum intensity this year. I am trying to present the practical side of CROCODILE and explain the meaning of these very fancy words (harmonized service design; interoperability between countries and provision of a unified service; standard, for example, data exchange based on DATEX II; automated, on-line sensors and other field data acquisition tools, etc.) with the help of Csaba Juhász (the head of the Szigetszentmiklós motorway engineering team). How does…

Hungarian Public Roads pays special attention to make road traffic more harmonic in the capital region. We have been working with Budapest Public Road for a long time on the different phases of the CROCODILE project, which aims to develop the Trans-European Transport Network: • Traffic Management Plans, • Display of Arrival Time, • Automatic Data Exchange Processes, • National Access Point. Motorway M0’s section between motorways M1 and M5 is a part of the C4 Orient/East-med and C9 Rhine-Danube Trans-European Transport Network corridors. The section between motorways M7 and M3 is a part of C3 Mediterranean TEN-T corridor. The main function of motorway M0 is to enable bypassing the capital and to connect the radial highways. These made necessary the creation of a comprehensive Traffic Management Plan, especially because…

Hungary’s first standard 5G station was launched at downtown Zalaegerszeg. 5 G technology can significantly improve traffic safety, since vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communications enable the spreading of traffic safety information among drivers not only trough ETSI-G5 short term radio communication (which is similar to WIFI), but also trough mobile technology. Since 2015, a 136 km long ETSI-G5 technology based test section has been operated on Hungary’s M1 motorway, with the aim of increasing road work safety. At the end of 2018, the system was further upgraded with equipment placed on the M0 ring road. Based on our experiences, we decided to deploy additional equipment in order to extend the coverage on the M1 and M7 motorways and on the M70 high-speed road. On 24 January 2019, the European Commission adopted…
