IWiT – an introduction

IWiT is an enter­pri­se net­work, who­se objec­tives are the deve­lop­ment and uti­li­za­ti­on of new tele­ma­tics solu­ti­ons for com­mer­ci­al trans­port in metro­po­li­tan are­as.
IWiT is the acro­nym for the net­work ‚s Ger­man name ‚Intel­li­gen­ter Wirt­schafts­ver­kehr durch Tele­ma­tik in Metro­pol­re­gio­nen‘.

The objec­tive of the net­work, which con­sists main­ly of SMEs and rep­res­ents tech­no­lo­gi­cal deve­l­o­pers (ITC com­pa­nies) as well as users from the dis­tri­bu­ti­on logistics and pas­sen­ger trans­port sec­tors as part­ners, is the deve­lop­ment of new sys­tem solu­ti­ons and asso­cia­ted sta­te-aided deve­lop­ment pro­jects. Foci are solu­ti­ons to com­bi­ne traf­fic data, geo data as well as infor­ma­ti­on and dis­po­si­ti­on sys­tems. The plan­ned dura­ti­on is 1 to 3 years.

Cur­rent Deve­lop­ment Lines are:

Data gene­ra­ti­on and pro­vi­si­on on basis of Blue­tooth-/Ca­me­ra-Detec­tion and Public Data

Pro­vi­si­on and pro­ces­sing of  real time traf­fic data in dis­po­si­ti­on for opti­mi­zed uti­li­za­ti­on of vehi­cles and con­tai­ners

Pro­vi­si­on and pro­ces­sing of fore­cast infor­ma­ti­on in traf­fic manage­ment and dis­po­si­ti­on

The net­work recei­ved a grant noti­fi­ca­ti­on as ZIM Coope­ra­ti­on Net­work (KN) wit­hin the frame­work of the Cen­tral Inno­va­ti­on Pro­gram for SMEs (Zen­tra­les Inno­va­ti­ons­pro­gramm für den Mit­tel­stand).
