Traffic control center of the states of Berlin and Brandenburg

TCC Stolpe

TCC Stolpe takes on central tasks of traffic management for the joint federal highway network of the states of Berlin and Brandenburg.

Road users receive information and warnings via variable message signs, variable direction signs and dynamic direction signs with integrated congestion information (dWiSta) from a total of 14 connected sub-centers. The TCC Stolpe is linked via the traffic information workstation (TIC3) to the Berlin and Brandenburg regional Police information center, which receive automatically generated traffic warning messages. These are transmitted on the basis of the cyclically recorded traffic data via a corresponding algorithm for traffic state identification. For this purpose, it is necessary to map the traffic sensor sites located on the highway and the determined section-related traffic conditions to the location referencing of the location code list (LCL) of RDS-TMC. On the other hand, all messages of the two state reporting centers Berlin and Brandenburg are displayed in the map and in lists. This also includes the messages on road works that are reported back.

All data from the connected sub-centers from Brandenburg and Berlin are archived centrally in the TCC and can be evaluated in detail. The software for the Stolpe traffic computer center, which is based on a digital road map, was developed by Heusch/Boesefeldt GmbH. Sub-centers of different manufacturers and TLS versions have been integrated into the TCC over the years. All traffic telematics systems are displayed via images in an integrated, graphical user interface. These representations show both control measure and operating states. The connected dWiSta can be switched manually via the graphical interface. To prepare the control measure, contents can be saved and activated at a later time. All representations are shown true to the original, so that the sign content can be identified accurately.

All traffic-related objects are displayed with their operational states in the digital road map. Via selection in the map (or alternatively from a list) the evaluations for the chosen object are selected.

Thus, all systems and detectors can be monitored centrally.
