3rd ITS Annual Excellence in ITS Awards

The Third ITS Ireland Awards Ceremony was held on the 2nd of October 2014, on the occasion of the ITS Ireland AGM and Gala Dinner at the Castletroy Park Hotel,

We received an excellent response and were delighted with the quality and diversity of the submissions. In the interest of fairness and transparency, we called on ITS-UK to assess and select the winners.

We would like to thank Deputy Mayor of Limerick Frankie Daly for taking the time out of his busy schedule to announce the awards.

Unfortunately, not everyone can be a winner and the entities that emerged victorious included:

Traffic Management Centre Upgrade

The Dublin City Council Traffic Control Room is a Multi Agency Regional Control Centre controlling over 800 Sets of Traffic Signals in the DCC area and via its SCATS system provides regional Centralised Control Functions in neighbouring Local Authorities. In addition this centre also is where the National Real Time Passenger Information system is run from.

Solar Powered VMS for the Inter-urban Motorway Network

Rennicks approached the NRA with an exciting proposition in 2013. The project was to supply the National Roads Authority with a fixed Solar Powered full Matrix Variable Message Sign, which was capable of remote communication and control. The pilot was agreed and Rennicks in partnership with SES France, developed the ( currently) Largest Solar Powered Full Matrix Variable Message Sign in the World.

Dublin City Council  – Fault Management System

Dublin City Council, (DCC) as part of their Traffic maintenance Contract, specified the further development of an internet and smart phone-based integrated fault, repairs and inventory management system to manage the fault lifecycle of all ITS equipment in Dublin City. The system was designed in-house by the DCC ITS Team working closely with Imtech Traffic & Infra and Nicander in a collaborative fashion, to apply the terms and conditions of the various contracts to the FMS.
