Abstract

The city of Almelo has developed, together with two suppliers, a new concept to give green light with priority. This concept, SABIMOS, is based on differential GPS. It combines already existing systems in an unique way and replaces the old VET AG-system. The concept was successfully tested in Almelo in 1999 and will be implemented the next years at traffic lights for buses and emergency vehicles. SABIMOS will also keep buses better on schedule and will be used, amongst others, at the new bus station for passenger information and platform allocation. There are several different possible applications in and outside The Netherlands.
