World Tunnel Congress 2022: Yunex Traffic presents solutions for safe and secure Tunnel operations
At the Yunex Traffic booth, visitors are invited to experience digital solutions that enable tunnel operators to take the precautions for optimal and safe tunnel operation already in the planning and construction phase. The focus is primarily on two solutions: Varia and the Digital Twin.
Varia is an integrated traffic and plant management system that combines tunnel operation technology and highway control technology. It is a modular software which can be adapted to specific customer demands and requirements. Various subsystems can be integrated, monitored, and controlled by an integrated traffic and plant management system to ensure reliability, availability, maintainability, and safety of the infrastructure asset. Automatic response plans and strategies are in place to immediately react to any detection result, traffic situation, and incident, like a blocked lane, a stopped vehicle or even a fire in a tunnel. In this way, they also contribute to greater safety in tunnels and on highways and protect people, structures, and the environment.
The ease of operations is ensured by guided workflows for the operator and by the interoperability of all sub-systems, i.e., various systems will automatically interact without any human intervention.
A Digital Twin is a virtual representation of real-world infrastructure, systems, and processes, where the representation is kept in-sync with the real world. It is the result of combining Building Information, Traffic and Plant Management System, Traffic Simulation and Asset Management. A Digital Twin can replace the real systems in many process steps to increase efficiency or perform actions that would be very difficult in the real world. The benefits include a higher project quality, faster implementation, reduced project costs and optimized operation.
With live demonstrations and a VR booth on site, Yunex Traffic will bring these solutions to life at the World Tunnel Congress 2022. In addition, visitors to the booth will have the opportunity to gain insight into ongoing projects of Yunex Traffic.
