Enhancing Intermodality of Content, Personalised Information and Functionality of WISETRIP Network of Journey Planning Engines

Objective

An attempt to integrate Journey Planning engines to form a unified intermodal planner for international journeys, has been performed by the WISETRIP FP7 project. WISETRIP has addressed important needs of the international traveller including the provision of personalized information before and during the trip, under different usage scenarios. The proposed Enhanced WISETRIP project aims at building on the knowledge developed in the recent project to bring new possibilities for planning, booking and travelling multimodal journeys adapted to all user needs, multiple trip criteria, environmental impact and personal preferences. To manage unexpected scenarios, the project will realise integration of real-time and non real-time data sources based upon efficient communications and decision management mechanism that will be considered for traveller alerting and trip redesign. It advances the state-of-the-art towards efficient and green planning of multimodal international trips, through its unique mixture of features, which are:
-Inclusion of a wide grid of criteria that form the basis of variant trip strategies and govern selection process either at planning or at trip redesign phase. Criteria include CO2 footprint, elderly and disabled preferences, typical factors (time, cost, hops) and various user-specific options.
-Acknowledging user requirements by genuinely addressing door-to-door journey planning; considering real-time event data and information on extraordinary conditions (strikes, disasters, extreme weather); and offering the possibility of integrated ticketing
-Use of the most advanced mobile interfaces (handheld and in-vehicle devices),
-Expansion of the geographical coverage and of the number of transport modes supported by the existing open platform for the interconnection of Journey Planners (www.wisetrip.travel); including international railway, car and cycle routing and more countries.
-Strong dissemination across European and non-European countries
