FIMA to demonstrate new intelligent transportation solutions at the Baltic Road Exhibition

Back to News

FIMA, the developer and implementer of intelligent transport solutions, will introduce several new solutions at the 28th International Baltic Road Exhibition, which will be held between the 26th and 28th of August in Vilnius. 

"At the exhibition, we will introduce a series of electronic engineering solutions that our company and its partners have developed and which have already been successfully implemented in Western European countries. These developments are relevant to the Baltic states because they are aimed at dealing with similar transport issues in these countries including traffic flow, traffic control and accident rates, the effectiveness of public transport and pollution,” said Director of FIMA’s Solutions Department, Rokas Šlekys.

Several intelligent transportation solutions that have been the subject of a lot of discussion in the Baltic States will be presented and their practical use demonstrated at FIMA’s exhibition stand at the International Baltic Road Conference and Exhibition in the Litexpo Exhibition and Congress Centre.

From the exhibition stand in Vilnius, FIMA representatives will log on to a weigh-in-motion system operating in the Czech Republic and will observe it recording traffic regulation violations in real time. FIMA will also demonstrate the remote control of an intersection in Kaunas which was modernised by the company’s specialists.

These demonstrations of systems will be supplemented with a radar mounted near the Litexpo Exhibition and Congress Centre which, thanks to algorithms developed by FIMA specialists, will record and analyse traffic. Visitors to the FIMA stand will also be able to learn about the operation of a road condition information system, electronic road signs, timed traffic lights and car park control software. 

Research published by the European Commission forecasts that by 2020, freight transport volumes within the EU will increase by 50 per cent and passenger carriage volumes by 35 per cent. According to FIMA’s representative, countries faced with such a rapid growth of traffic will find that the only acceptable solution to ensure smoother traffic flows is to increase the capacity of existing infrastructure through the use of intelligent transportation systems.

FIMA, which has been operating for more than two decades, has accumulated substantial experience in the implementation of intelligent transportation systems having successfully managed the installation of such projects across the Baltic states as well as in Lithuania.

FIMA experts, together with the company’s partners, developed a Lithuanian road traffic information system, installed a network of automatic road weather stations, a network of 150 speed cameras and upgraded the infrastructure on controlled intersections in cities across the country as well as a host of other projects. FIMA is currently installing a system throughout Lithuania which will analyse traffic flows in real time.

Representatives from the Baltic States’ transport sectors meet every three years.  This year’s conference will be attended by representatives from more than 20 Baltic Region countries. Transport sector representatives meeting in Vilnius will discuss recommendations on the application of state-of-the-art technologies, the integration of intelligent transportation systems and the improvement of road infrastructure for different types of transport, taking climate change and environmental impacts into account. 

At the exhibition FIMA will demonstrate solutions of the following partners: 3M, Ampair Energy, Barco, CAMCO Technologies, CROSS, Microprocessador, Navtech Radar, Peek Traffic.
