Smart Transport Applications Designed for large events with Impacts on Urban Mobility (STADIUM)
Client :European Union
Scope of Work : The scope of the project covers the following:
  • Implementation of demonstrator project on BRT corridor and feeder bus lines to event venues
  • User survey for impact assessment
  • Cost-benefit analysis of Intelligent Transport System enabled public transit
  • Development of a set of guidelines and tools for improving the performance of transport systems and make it available to a wide and differentiated range of users in the framework of large events hosted by big cities to implement management support systems (mainly ICT technologies).
What is STADIUM:

STADIUM is a Project funded by European Union. It encompasses Multi-disciplinary team (transport companies, ICT experts, transport policy experts) and aims to carry out demonstration projects in large sporting events (FIFA World Cup, South Africa; Commonwealth Games, India and Olympics, London). The consortium includes academic institutions, research and consultancy firms, ITS manufacturers, SMEs and Companies from South Africa and India. DIMTS is a part of the Project Consortium and gave inputs related to CWG 2010.

Main impacts: Evidence of capabilities to manage high concentrated transport demand during large events through long lasting technological solutions.

Main outputs:
  • Design of ICT applications compliant with the EU ITS Framework Architecture procedures
  • Demonstration of viability of ITS technologies in emerging countries
  • Handbook providing guidelines and solutions for selecting, designing and implementing applications in favour of potential large events hosting cities.

The project is planned to last for four years, therefore extending approximately till 2012. It had helped in the preparation, monitoring and evaluation of the Commonwealth Games in Delhi (CWG 2010) and the football world championships in South Africa (FIFA 2010). In future it will also ensure that intense and operational interaction of the London Olympics (OG 2012), thus allowing for a meaningful test of the handbook and of the lessons learnt from CWG 2010 and FIFA 2010.

The time dimension of the STADIUM project is infact dictated by the need to appropriately consider:
  • Past events, from which to learn
  • Events currently under preparation (although with varying schedules) with which to establish a two-way interaction
  • Future events, to be targeted for dissemination and exploitation
