RISC Software GmbH offers its customers software solutions and applications which, tailored to their individual needs, contribute to comprehensive traffic information, the optimisation of freight and passenger traffic and the fulfilment of mobility requirements.

With its broad know-how and successful projects, RISC Software GmbH is thus driving a promising development in the sense of sustainability and efficiency in road transport and mobility management.

Real-time traffic situation information, simulation and forecasting: TOMS

The Traffic Online Monitoring System TOMS enables traffic on Upper Austrian roads to be recorded in order to generate area-wide, real-time traffic information and forecasts. The system is configured for monitoring traffic on Upper Austrian roads, but can also be extended or adapted for other regions.

A hybrid approach is being pursued in which various sensor systems and a supplementary traffic simulation are used. The resulting data will be integrated into TOMS, resulting in the following benefit aspects:

Logistics companies can benefit from the traffic situation data by using it for optimizations in transport and route planning.
With the help of simulation, different traffic analyses can be carried out, for example by calculating emissions or determining travel times.
Traffic management can be made more efficient by simulating the effects of road closures, road works, accidents, etc. and by identifying alternative routes.

Efficient routing

RISC Software GmbH develops tailor-made solutions for complex transport and route planning problems for its customers. Different definable optimization parameters such as CO2 efficiency, costs, time and route can be taken into account.

Transport statistics and analysis: TESS

The traffic statistics tool TESS (Traffic Evaluation and Sensor Statistics) was developed to check and analyse historical sensor data in Upper Austria. It is possible to extend or adapt the tool and its functions according to individual needs. The program includes the following functions:

Calculation and forecast of travel times and speeds on individual road sections and routes
Determination and analysis of historical and forecast traffic data
Analysis of data from individual sensor types (Bluetooth, Vehicle Detection Loops, Floating Car Data)
Aggregation of historical data to average speeds and different daily hydrographs (e.g. holidays, working days)
Export function for different average speeds (V85) and daily hydrographs
Detailed user-specific analyses

Multimodality, Mobility as a Service and Shared Mobility

The joint use of means of transport not only allows synergy effects to be exploited, but also makes a significant contribution to sustainable environmental development. RISC Software GmbH has already successfully implemented numerous projects in the field of shared mobility and is a competent partner in the development of software solutions in this area.

The lead project DOMINO (hub for intermodal mobility services and technologies) focuses on integrated personal mobility with the aim of developing a universal and publicly available mobility offer. For this purpose, a large ride sharing pool of different mobility providers is used and integrated into the system.

Through the design of multimodal transport and the use of different modes of transport, it is possible to find measures for the optimisation of the modes of transport by means of machine learning methods. This allows, for example:

  • derive optimal transport intervals and measures against congestion in the field of passenger transport.
  • in the field of freight traffic, determine optimal transhipment hubs and control the timing of transports.
