TMaaS Solutions

Visit this page for an overview of all TMaaS Solutions.

What does TMaaS mean?

TMaaS is an acronym for Traffic Management as a Service.

I am a developer, how can I get involved?

We love to hear from developers who are eager to integrate TMaaS solutions into their applications, and we want to make this as easy as possible. You can download the TMaaS API, or contact us if you don’t find what you need.

Can regions apply for the TMaaS Replicator City Programme?

The TMaaS Replicator City programme is now closed

More information about the TMaaS API

We’ve developed two TMaaS API’s – one that contains contains the open data from TMaaS and the proprietary data of the partners. This API access key can only be shared with parties who have come to an agreement with the TMaaS consortium. Without an agreement of the consortium it will not be possible to receive the proprietary data. For the open data, no agreement is necessary and the public TMaaS access key will be available. The two TMaaS APIs are  divided in 3 API’s handling one specific category of data, namely points of interests (POI), traffic events, and parking information. Download the TMaaS API

What are the features of the TMaaS dashboard?
  1. The TMaaS dashboard uses data from many sources including traffic data from TomTom and Be-Mobile data. So we’re integrating more than just one provider of traffic data.
  2. We’re multi-modal, so not just cars.
  3. Cities can communicate with their citizens through personalised messages
  4. Citizens can receive personal and automated notifications
How can I start with searching for relevant data sets in my city or region?

Do the data scan

The first thing that you as a city can do is start investigating which mobility issues you wish to manage through the TMaaS dashboard and translate this into a wish list of mobility data that could be relevant for your local TMaaS dashboard. The TMaaS team encourages you to create an Open Data Portal for your city, including publicly available data that is free of cost to use. For example, the City of Ghent collects more than 400 data sets in their Open Data Portal. Additionally, you can start with an inventory of data sets that are made available by your local companies and that have the potential to be used in the TMaaS dashboard, if needed through a licensing agreement.

How easily replicable / useable are data sources?

We’ve divided them in four categories:

Easy to replicate in TMaaS:

  • Global data sources: for practically any city in the world, data will be available. For example OpenWeatherMap, virtually plug-and-play.
  • International data sources: these sources have data from many countries around the world and are easily replicable with limited implementation time

Will require implementation time:

These API’s have not yet been analysed by the TMaaS team and have not yet been implemented in the TMaaS dashboard:

  • National data sources, such as public transport data.
    A lot of large cities like London or New York have their own public transport services, but for most small to medium sized cities most public transport services are organised on a national level.
  • Local (city) data sources, for example counting poles, car or bicycle sharing services etc.

Urban Innovative Actions

This project is co-financed by the European Regional and Development Fund through the Urban Innovative Actions Initiative.

Urban Innovative Actions is an Initiative of the European Union that provides urban areas throughout Europe with resources to test new and unproven solutions to address urban challenges.

Based on article 8 of ERDF, the Initiative has a total ERDF budget of EUR 372 million for 2014-2020.
