The Viajeo project will design, demonstrate and validate an open platform which will facilitate data sharing and exchange from different sources and provide data processing and management to support a variety of services. The project will integrate the open platform with local components and demonstrate its applications in four cities: Athens, São Paulo, Beijing and Shanghai.
The open platform will benefit travellers, transport planners and transport system operators and managers. The open platform will be able to support cross-modal journey planning and seamless traveller information service. Data exchange between operators will lead to a better optimized operation of all systems and individual operation strategies can be harmonized by the data exchanges and information sharing. The platform will enable all data and information used for real-time operation to be used for transport planning. Transport planner will have access to traffic data and information on traffic management strategies. Such information will lead more detailed and comprehensive historical database for transport modelling development and long term policy evaluation.
