Free Flow in Norway, STATEN VEGVESEN

Project of a Free Flow system for Miljøpakke Trondheim Trinn2 comprising 16 charging points different settings around the city of Trondheim for a total of 56 lanes equipped for the Public Administration of Norway, STATEN VEGVESEN.

One of the characteristics of this project is the use of the redundant MLFF solution of Tecsidel at all levels (gantry and control cabinet). It consists of a 3 gantries with a laser classification and DSRC electronic collection interoperable system. It detects the direction of the flow into the opposite lane and controls infringements by OCR technology. The entire process is managed through the application of monitoring and control of Tecsidel, one of the challenges of this project has been the short installation period during the strong Norwegian winter.

Toll system in India, SOMA-ISOLUX

Conventional toll system with 3 levels on the NH-6, formed by 28 lanes equipped in 2 plazas, for SOMA-ISOLUX

During 2012 it was completed the implementation of a toll system between the towns of Kishangar and Beawar in Rajasthan State on the NH-8, which consists of 32 lanes and 2 plazas. The system allows payment in cash, with smart card and ETC (passive RFID tag to 915 Mhz). This toll system integrates the classification by lasers along with weight in motion of the vehicles.

Learning APPs: environments and educational tools a la carte

Today there is a wide range of tools that enable learning and teaching in the network. Educational institutions use mostly as Moodle training environments, and social networks (e.g. Facebook) collected more and more training initiatives. At the same time, a growing number of web 2.0 tools that are used for learning and teaching (wikis, blogs, Google Apps, tools, etc.). The problem is that, although these resources are already available on the network, there is a wide dispersion and it is not often easy know, choose and use the right tools.

Funded by the former Ministry of science and innovation (now Secretary of State for research, development and innovation, Ministry of economy and competitiveness) and the EU European Regional Development Fund , the Learning Apps project aims to create a space where teachers and educational institutions can easily build, with just a few clicks, your own online training environment. So, can choose the most suitable platform to teach (Moodle, Sakai, Facebook, or other) as well as for each subject-specific tools (blogs, wikis, chat rooms, forums, video/audio conference...). Environment will also offer the possibility of registering new tools, rating the existing and attach information, such as user manuals, case studies, strategies and contexts of use.

The objectives

Inspired by existing models such as Apple's App Store, and thought about online education, Learning Apps will allow to select all the elements needed to build a virtual environment of complete learning or only those needed to expand an existing virtual platform. Learning Apps will allow to combine the use of free applications, payment, or a payment (or micropayment) model by use. There will also be available applications with free version and a paid version. All this in a simple way and without need technological expertise. It will also explore the possibility of including in this model complete ready to use, with integrated content and applications training.

More specifically, the specific objectives of the project are:

  • Offer a setting in internet collaboration, business and broadcasting for educational content, providers of education and training services businesses.

  • Encourage on-line training, offering an environment of low maintenance cost, highly automated permitting the construction of educational environments highly customizable and adaptable to the different types of online training on-demand.

  • Create and promote a model and a framework of integration between applications and educational environments in line, based on the concepts of web services, Software as a service (Software as a Service - SaaS) and cloud computing (cloud computing), allowing other institutions and businesses use it, expand it and create business with him.

  • Provide mechanisms to add new applications, platforms and services and a business model open, non-exclusive, allowing suppliers in the sector, bring their products, make them known and create business.

  • Ensure quality and perform the pilots needed to test and demonstrate the correct operation of the service, and generate use cases to be followed by other educational institutions.

  • Promote the environment and make it grow, get training providers to use it and the community and businesses to extend it

The intelligent execution of operations in a logistic operator

Author: Josep Francesc, Plensa

In a few moments in which companies are busily looking for the optimization of costs in order to be more competitive, the logistics operators (OL) have assumed an important part of the supply chain to offer customers very optimized costs, result of efficiency which reach into running their operations.

As in all sectors, computer systems are also come to the aid of the OL, especially in all that refers to the optimization of the execution of the operations, whether which are storage centers inside as in transport and distribution operations.

Each of the computer systems which the OL can be used are like members of a great living body that don't make sense or utility if they are not integrated, as it is that integration which constitutes the body and creates a factor of synergy in such a way that 1 + 1 > 2

R+D+i: SNIFER – service of optical fiber monitoring system

The project "development of a monitoring system of quality of service (QoS, Qo?)for optical fiber access, for metropolitan and core networks"(SNIFER), funded by the Ministry of Science and Innovation of the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness through the program INNPACTO 2011, is an experimental, multi-year development project (2011-2013) carried out in cooperation by the companies and entities: W-onesys, Tecsidel and the Optical Communications Group of the Polytechnic University of Catalunya.

The objective of this project is the design, the implementation and validation of a system of advanced monitoring of indicators relating to the quality of optic network at an optical level (Qo?, Quality of Lambda) and the quality of services (QoS, Quality of Service) end-to-end (transport layer plus IP service layer), in ultra fast IP networks with core based on DWDM optical technology (Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing).
This system will obtain measurements of performance network covering two different levels:

  • Optical Level, through probes for digital/optical performance monitoring (OPM/DPM), which extends the standard ITU-T G.7710, located in the transport nodes ROADM (Reconfigurable Optical Add Drop Multiplexer) equipment of an optical network DWDM, which will monitor quality of an optical DWDM channel parameters and, incorporate modules BERT (Bit Error Rate Tester) up to 10Gbps, it also can monitor the quality of the end-to-end digital link. Through such benefits we may implement policies of preventive and proactive maintenance of the optical network. Finally with the addition of a micro OTDR (Optical Time Domain Reflectomer) we can implement reactive maintenance through the rapid location of a rupture of the fiber-optic link.

  • Services Level, by mean of probes of Quality of Service (QoS) placed at network access points, which will measure quality and availability of IP services in order to evaluate the quality perceived by the user.

Both levels of quality measures will be integrated into a central collection system with a single repository. The information collected will be subject to:

  • The exploitation of the data generated in real time, studying the quality requirements of the physical conditions on the links IP/DWDM, possible correlations between measures and finally providing access to reports and analysis.

  • Integration with external systems, to what will develop a standard Northbound interface to provide alarms and performance data.

The system will be submitted to final validation according to a series of requirements for use by a transmission network operator. To do this, the system will be implanted on an advanced and experimental optical network belonging to ASON typology (Automatically Switched Optical Network), formed by a ring of three ROADM optical nodes, from the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC).
