With the PSIroads-MDS solution, the PSI subsidiary PSI Mines&Roads GmbH is one of the ten winners of the German Mobility Award, which was announced for the second time this year. Within the framework of the competition, the initiative "Germany - Land of Ideas" and the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure will award groundbreaking best-practice projects on the main topic of safety in the competition year 2017.
The digital, innovative solution PSIroads-MDS optimizes the use of transport networks with an approach for multi-criteria decision support and thus contributes to safe and reliable mobility.
PSIroads-MDS allows the operators of roads to optimise traffic according to freely-defined operative and strategic targets. To accomplish this, possible measures for influencing traffic on the basis of the current and expected traffic situation are assessed using the Qualicision software for solving multi-criterial decision and optimisation tasks from the PSI subsidiary PSI Fuzzy Logik Systeme. The measures for influencing traffic that lead to the optimal target are determined and proposed by PSIroads-MDS.
