We present the unique ViaPlanet system for managing roads and road infrastructure

Information technology and its development have not bypassed the area that is used daily by billions of people around the world - the area of transport, roads, and road infrastructure. The development of information solutions for this very important and widespread area is growing intensively, and Planet soft, as one of the regional leaders in this field, made a great contribution to the greater safety of the users themselves and better management of roads and road infrastructure through the development of his solution that "keeps his head" - the Via Planet system for managing roads and road infrastructure.

In the times we live in, which are characterized by increased urbanization, and an increasing number of inhabitants and vehicles, we are witnessing more intense traffic congestion and a reduction in the efficiency and safety of the road infrastructure we know.
What is also important is that a long time ago we overcome the old road maps and how they were developed, and there is an increasingly present need for a high-quality list of roads, traffic signals, buildings, etc., so that it would be possible to use them as well as possible manage more safely. Greater congestion on the roads, as well as extended travel time, increased fuel consumption, and emission of harmful exhaust gases from vehicles, further stimulated the need for better organization of the entire traffic system and road infrastructure into a single information system.The aforementioned situation, which is a growing problem for many users of the road infrastructure, and the development of information technology naturally led to the need to develop special intelligent systems, which today are known as systems for managing roads and road structures and also as intelligent transport systems.

How did the special system - Via Planet - come about?

For us at Planet soft, this situation represented a challenge and we had a strong motivation to further contribute to the development of solutions for this area to maximally facilitate the development of traffic, improve the safety of all traffic participants and help to manage roads and road infrastructure in an intelligent and automated manner. As a result of these efforts, our software solution was developed - Via Planet, a system for managing roads and road infrastructure, which offers numerous options and its application met with a very good response in the region. In this way, we wanted to contribute to the further development of the communities in which we live and work, and as an IT company to use the special kind of expertise we have in our ranks - a team of experienced experts in the field of traffic and with many years of experience in information technologies, which is a very rare combination.

What is the ViaPlanet management system?

The ViaPlanet road and road infrastructure management system is a unique software package, consisting of modules/sets of applications, which enable road infrastructure data to be up-to-date 24/7 and easily accessible to those who manage the system. ViaPlanet is specific in that it assists in the maintenance of the road infrastructure in an intelligent and automated way that reduces human errors and increases the safety of road users, such as clear signaling and warnings, identification of black spots, etc., thus preventing numerous accidents. It also enables the creation of a road map base with the help of special technologies for recording in the field, which gives our experts the unusual opportunity to work even from a helicopter. Of course, all this provides great opportunities for the needs of court practice with a complete history and automatic reconstruction of the situation, and it also brings many advantages to the work of numerous experts such as designers, managers, supervisory bodies of construction sites, but also for wide use by citizens themselves.

Objectives of using the ViaPlanet system for road and road infrastructure management

There are numerous advantages of the ViaPlanet system, and when we created it, we had the following goals in mind:

  • Creation of a unique database of roads - the so-called road Cadastre, which contains road elements, data on traffic equipment, and traffic signals
  • The possibility of a simple cadastre of roads, which is both uniform and confidential
  • Improving the road maintenance function in a systematic and centralized way of monitoring the maintenance process
  • Efficient and simple reporting of problems by field services, as well as easy communication between different services and with contractors
  • Providing a functional service for citizens in the form of a web platform
  • Establishing a documentation management system
  • High-quality and simple reporting on the works undertaken to maintain the road infrastructure, easy monitoring of the execution of contracts and work
  • Detailed reporting on the state of traffic signals and equipment, with monitoring of the state over time
  • GPS monitoring of the patrol service and winter road maintenance
  • Quality reporting on the relationship between roads and plots.

As can be seen from the above mentioned, we had in mind a very wide application of Via Planet system, which we achieved, and for which there are numerous examples from practice.

A very important prerequisite is adequate data collection, which we also do use advanced technologies and a specially equipped vehicle for mobile mapping, with the use of LiDAR technology, with the creation of special orthoimages, and with the possibility of fast and efficient mapping up to 100 km per day. What is very exciting is that we use helicopters and airplanes for these needs when the terrain allows it. 

Data processing must not be underestimated. And is just as important as data collection, which we do especially and with the use of the most modern solutions in the ViaPlanet system. Since we use our product, users of ViaPlanet software do not need to pay for additional licenses, as is often the case. What is important to emphasize is that ViaPlanet is a very flexible solution and comes in the form of modules, which are applied according to the needs of the user - you do not have to use modules that you do not need...

We would like to present you with the other numerous advantages of the ViaPlanet system for managing roads and road infrastructure, but then this text would turn into a book.

Application of the ViaPlanet system

Thanks to numerous advantages that significantly facilitate the management of roads and road infrastructure, ViaPlanet is a solution already recognized by numerous regional users, such as JP Putevi RS, Autoputevi RS, Putevi Brčko, Autoceste FBiH,  Direkcija za ceste Kantona Sarajevo, Putevi Srbije.

This is ViaPlanet in numbers:

  • 5 million m2 of road network mapped
  • 100 mapped bridges
  • 30,000 mapped characters
  • 200.000 m2
  • 1,2 million locations mapped
  • ... and we are still counting kilometers and elements

Our desire and goal are to make traffic and roads as safe and easy to maintain as possible, with simple and automated access to data, and to make life easier for both road users and those who manage them.
