Proyecto MANBUS, Sistema de ayuda al mantenimiento de autobuses

Dbus participa en el proyecto MANBUS junto con las empresas TCMAN y CEIT (Centro de Estudios e Investigaciones Técnicas). Las 3 empresas han generado un consorcio con el que se pretende desarrollar y validar soluciones innovadoras que optimicen el proceso de mantenimiento de flotas de autobuses.

Para ello se contempla desarrollar un nuevo producto que incorporará nuevas tecnologías para ayudar de la forma más intuitiva posible en las operaciones de mantenimiento que realizan los operarios en la flota de autobuses.

El consorcio cuenta con representantes de todas las partes interesadas (desarrollador, integrador, explotador, usuario final) que han identificado claramente los problemas existentes en los procedimientos de mantenimiento y las necesidades de innovación.

El tipo de soluciones que se desarrollarán se enmarcan dentro de las tecnologías más innovadores dentro del área de movilidad, sistemas de información, visión artificial, realidad aumentada y procesamiento de voz. Se contempla también una fase de validación final antes de su introducción en el mercado, evitando el puro desarrollo de prototipos.

Se trata de un proyecto innovador financiado por el Ministerio de Economía y Competitividad dentro del programa RETOS COLABORACION 2015 y cofinanciado por el Fondo Europeo de Desarrollo Regional (FEDER). El proyecto comenzó el 1 de octubre de 2015 y tiene una duración de 30 meses.

Finished projects

The SITE (Smart Travelling in Atlantic Cities) project

Since the beginning of 2012, Dbus and San Sebastian City Council have been participating in the European SITE project, a project aimed at fomenting the use of public transport by improving technological and payment systems on buses. The project has been selected by the European Union within the Atlantic Area Programme of the INTERREG initiative and given the maximum rating. The project is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

San Sebastian is participating in the SITE project with cities like Liverpool in England, Nantes in France, Gijón in Spain, Aveiro in Portugal and Dún Laoghaire in Ireland.

The SITE project, which has been heavily funded by the European Union has meant that Dbus and San Sebastian City Council are able to develop measures to implement technologies to improve the accessibility of buses for the handicapped and people with reduced mobility, reduce journey times and simplify information and payment systems, thus generating enhanced experience for users of San Sebastian’s urban transport.

SmartCem Project

Together with San Sebastian City Council and other European cities and bodies, Dbus, is taking part in an innovative pilot project called SmartCEM (Connected Electro Mobility), launched in January 2012 and with a total duration of 30 months. The SmartCEM project was submitted following the call by the European Commission in 2011 for pilot programmes in innovation, and was one of the selected projects.

Other cities and bodies take part in the project together with Dbus and San Sebastian City Council.

Among them are the cities of Barcelona and Turin, the University of Newcastle, entities like Tecnalia or the Basque Mobility and Logistics Cluster, Ertico in Belgium, NEC Europe and Gateshead College in the United Kingdom, and Idiada and RACC in Catalonia, as well as the Regional Government of Gipuzkoa.

The project focuses on electric mobility which is expected to develop in coming years in cities, and consists in assessing the performance of electric vehicles and how drivers adapt from the point of view of modified needs due to replacing a vehicle running on conventional fuel to one using electricity.

The participation of Dbus in the project centres on the study of the performance of the hybrid bus in the daily public transport service in San Sebastian.

The project will likewise permit the study of possible opportunities for new businesses associated with electric mobility which could arise in the future.

CIVITAS-Archimedes project

Dbus has taken part in the CIVITAS initiative, an international project promoted by the European Commission. The CIVITAS initiative helps cities foment a sustainable, clean and economical urban transport system, implementing and evaluating packages of measures based on ambitious and integrated policies and technologies. The measures adopted encompass transport supply and demand. They aim at improving residents’ quality of life. The number of cities participating has not stopped growing and currently there are about 60 cities throughout Europe taking part in CIVITAS.

Of the eight categories established for the project, San Sebastian took part in the   Archimedes category, an ambitious combination of activities whose aim is to increase the modal share of sustainable modes and provide safer and more comfortable travel services in medium-sized urban areas. Dbus leads in activities related to the “Use of alternative fuels and clean and energy efficient vehicles”. The project availed of 83 measures to help comply with EU legislation (more alternative fuels, lower CO2 emissions, less pollution and noise) and raise energy efficiency.

ARCHIMEDES is an integrating project which brought six European cities together to deal with problems and avail of the opportunities to create a more sustainable environment and promote energy efficient transport systems.

As part of the project Dbus likewise deployed high quality BRT transport corridors on routes 5 and 28. It also introduced environment-friendly buses with EEV technology and purchased the first hybrid bus which has been running on the streets of San Sebastian since 2011.

Other measures implemented by Dbus under this Project was improved bus service to the industrial estates and business parks as well as the deployment of technological means for better service.

The city of San Sebastian was given 4.266.116€ by the European Union for the  CIVITAS Project. 1,562,097€ of this went to the CTSS over the four year-period for the project to be developed.

The success of the measures promoted and adopted by Dbus, and efforts made on the part of San Sebastian City Council towards a more sustainable mobility merited the award for the most sustainable transport system at the Foro Civitas which was held in Vitoria-Gasteiz in September 2012. A jury made up of independent experts  chose San Sebastian as a source of inspiration and an example to follow in the field of sustainable mobility in Europe.

The CIVITAS City of the Year Award is the most important European prize for more sustainable transport. Previous prizewinners in recent years were Utrecht, Bologna and Ghent.
