The ivm GmbH (integrated Traffic Management Region Frankfurt RheinMain) coordinates integrated and intermodal traffic management within the region. One of ivm's duties is to manage messages and the exchange of traffic-related information between the partners. In this project, for the first time, small and medium sized cities and districts as well as municipal partners who do not operate traffic management systems of their own will be actively involved in message management. For this purpose, ivm GmbH designed the memo Client Server System.
Memo's key features are its map-based message processing (geo-mapping) and the use of a standardized message catalogue enabling the automatic exchange of information. The memo prototype was completed and put into operation by the first partners in the spring of 2006.
AS+P supported the client during each work phase and was responsible for coordinating the entire project. Among its tasks were the preparation and holding of workshops; providing input for system specifications; development of the message catalogue; the definition, refinement and realization of the reference system; testing of the prototype system; training of the partners and the compilation of an operating manual. AS+P furthermore provided conceptual input during the system's design and regarding the planning of the next development stages.
