25 Jan Le Strade Magazine: Sinelec for the Motorway of the Future
Sinelec and its role as a technology partner of the Motorway of the Future featured in the latest issue of Le Strade, Italy’s most authoritative technical information magazine on transportation infrastructure.
As the technological arm of the ASTM Group, a leading operator in the concessions sector, Sinelec knows the world of motorway operations inside out and it is able to satisfy its specific needs: Sinelec is today the “best in class” player when it comes to Smart Road system implementation processes. For Sinelec, Smart Road represents a new road management paradigm that requires a multi-level technological and operational transformation process to be gradually applied to the entire infrastructure system. This approach is embodied in the project of modernization, technological innovation and ecological transition of the A4 Turin-Milan, in which Sinelec plays the role of technological partner. This is a “digital transformation” intervention that will project the motorway into a new dimension, among the most modern and advanced in Europe.
The project includes the extension of vehicle-infrastructure communication systems, the increase of the sensor monitoring system of the road structures, the introduction of anti-fog systems, the use of weigh – in – motion solutions for the management of heavy traffic, of counter-manoeuvre detection systems and the detection of dangerous goods. Sinelec will also take care of environmental sustainability: green pavements, water recovery systems, and the introduction of additional electric charging stations and hydrogen dispensers are planned.
