38 conference participants took the opportunity to explore how the results of the European research project MODUM (modum-project.eu) support cities’ transport and traffic operators to manage urban traffic more efficiently, and how MODUM helps citizens with environmentally-conscious multi-modal routing information. After an introduction to the MODUM project, which was given by Sven Maerivoet from TML, Professor Evtim Peytchev from Nottingham Trent University and Jordan Markov from MUSAT demonstrated how the MODUM application is currently used in the real world implementations at the MODUM trial sites Nottingham and Sofia. Francis Ashton from Nottingham City Council, Gergana Ugrinska from Sofia Urban Mobility Centre, and Sunil Budhdeo from Coventry City Council, talked about the implementation of the MODUM system in their cities and answered questions from the audience. Sven Maerivoet from TML gave an introduction to the recently started European project HoPE, which will build on the results of the MODUM project.
