Overview Statement: Bluetooth messaging from infrastructure to delegates
RouteTIP is a world first in intelligent transport systems, a state of the art communication channel for transport agencies, to make safer and more enjoyable journeys. Developed by HMI Technologies, a world leader in Intelligent Transport Solutions, the RouteTIP app is used by road users to receive alerts from beacons on roadside infrastructure such as street lights, bridges, or sign posts.
The innovative aspects of RouteTIP are numerous; beacons send simple, location-specific messages to the RouteTIP app on a smartphone, which works completely hands free, requiring no interaction from users. Messages include alerts about hazards and traffic congestion ahead, reminders of speed restrictions, journey time information and much more. RouteTIP users are able to subscribe to different information streams which ensure that they only receive information that they find relevant. Furthermore, RouteTIP guides consumers in their cars, on public transport, on a bicycle or simply on foot as pedestrians. RouteTIP is also an end to end solution for busy Airport environments; providing users with information such as optimal routes, detailed descriptions of facilities, travel time estimation between gates and flight details.
Unlike a majority of apps, RouteTIP does not rely on cellular data or GPS in its functionalities and is completely free and is operational even without a simcard. HMI designed RouteTIP with the intent of managing traffic after disasters - RouteTIP is compact and solar driven, and can continue to operate up to 9 days without a power source.
For the ITS World Congress in Melbourne, RouteTIP will be deployed at a number of locations, including Melbourne Airport, the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, Melbourne’s Southbank, Federation Square, Botanical Gardens, Arts Centre and Sports and Entertainment district. Messages will be transmitted to delegates’ smart phones, provided they have Bluetooth switched on and the app downloaded – see instructions below.
