TANGENT Launches a Traffic Management Webinar Series

TANGENT is organising a webinar series on network and traffic management!

TANGENT is an EU-funded project that aims to optimise multimodal transport network management. The project is launching a webinar series on network and traffic management that will span between the end of 2023 and the first half of 2024.

The four-part series aims to present key project results and tools developed, collecting feedback from stakeholders and experts.

  • Webinar 1, ‘Navigating through Network and Traffic Management: An Urban Phenomenon’, is an introductory webinar on network and traffic management made for everyone working in the mobility and transport sector.
  • Webinars 2 and 3 focus on the technical aspects of the TANGENT project, involving topics such as ‘Real-Time Traffic Modelling and Forecasting Tools’ and ‘Transport Network Optimization and Arbitration Models’.
  • Webinar 4, ‘Integrated Tool for Cooperative Traffic Management and Results of Case Study Implementation’, will give an in-depth overview of the tool developed within the TANGENT project through case study implementation in Rennes, Lisbon, Greater Manchester, and Athens.

An accessible first webinar to introduce network and traffic management

TANGENT has invited two speakers to present network and traffic management at the urban level. They will give an overview of what "network and traffic management" involves, how a metropolitan area, like Greater Manchester, approaches traffic management and what exactly they do in their control room, and how policies at the EU level impact local traffic management.
