The ITS in Bydgoszcz relies on interoperation of the following subsystems:
1. traffic control,
2. public transport management,
3. video surveillance,
4. alternative route guidance system,
5. parking information.
THE TRAFFIC CONTROL SUBSYSTEM
Subsystem is based on the adaptive, urban SPRINT/ITS/SCATS system. The system controls operation of 52 intersections with traffic lights installed: 45 modernized and seven new ones. On routes traversed by trams solutions granting them priority crossing through intersections were implemented. Additionally, traffic measurement stations, which collect data on traffic flowing into the area, and road meteorology stations were installed.
THE PUBLIC TRANSPORT MANAGEMENT SUBSYSTEM
Subsystem will enable implementation of tram traffic prioritization and real-time bus stop information. Trams were equipped with priority signal transmitters and passenger information displays were installed in 90 transport hubs. The subsystem is integrated with the passenger information system created during the construction of the tram line leading to the railway station. Also interactive kiosks with integrated ticket machines were installed.
THE VIDEO SURVEILLANCE SUBSYSTEM
Subsystem consists of over 90 cameras, incl. CCTV cameras and cameras dedicated to automatic vehicle identification (AVI).
VARIABLE MESSAGE SIGNS
Alternative route guidance is accomplished by over 30 variable message signs (VMS) located in the area covered by the system. Traffic information is also available via a dedicated Internet portal. It relies on information collected by the AVI cameras operating within the video surveillance subsystem.
THE PARKING INFORMATION SUBSYSTEM
Subsystem consists of over 20 parking information displays. The displays show information about the occupancy of parking places in the sub-zone A of the Metered Parking Zone. In addition, parking meters were installed, and portable verification devices were delivered.
TRAFFIC CONTROL CENTRE
All subsystems are integrated by the Central Application installed at the Traffic Control Centre. The application displays status of system’s components and enables operators to access their functionality.

The development of the tramway network in Olsztyn begins
The new infrastructure will include about six kilometers of double track. Along with the construction of the new streetcar line, there will be 13 new stops in the city.
Sprint will equip Olsztyn trams from Turkish manufacturer
Sprint, under the contract signed with Durmazlar, will provide comprehensive equipment for trams, as well as support in the field of installation and start-up.
Expansion of Intelligent Transport Systems in Bielsko-Biała
This is our next project in this city. As a reminder, in August 2018, the first stage of building the Intelligent Transportation System was completed.
Intelligent Transport Systems in Opole
New investment in Opole. On January 10, 2020, the city authorities and Sprint representatives signed a contract for the construction of an Intelligent Transport System (ITS).
