GAESI – Grupo de Automação Elétrica em Sistemas Industriais, Escola Politécnica da Universidade de São Paulo, Av. Prof. Luciano Gualberto, trav. 3, n° 158, CEP, 05508-970, São Paulo/SP, Brazil
The Secretary of Transportation of the city of São Paulo recently released a public consultation for the city’s Urban Mobility plan. This consultation is quite broad in scope, addressing many different areas of the bus public transportation modal in the city, including the operation itself, control and bus terminal administration. The proposal contains guidelines to reorganize the actual services using the infrastructure already deployed. This article will bring to light the development stages of the ITS in the United States, Europe, and Japan while focusing on the technology portion of the São Paulo tender such as: (i) planning and scheduling systems, (ii) operational control center and its technologies to monitor and control the operation, (iii) the on-board technologies, and (iv) the integration to the existing track and location (T&L), control and reporting system called SIM – Sistema Integrado de Monitoramento (Integrated Monitoring System). The main goal of this article is to map the proposed ITS system for the city of São Paulo and compare it to the world class systems operating in the major cities in the world highlighting the areas of excellence and the ones with room for improvement.
