Key Results: 

At the end of the FUTÁR project dispatchers  keep tracks of vehicles with satellite tracking so they can then control the vehicle traffic continuously, or it will even be possible to arrange  a tram or metro replacement  much easier and faster.

In addition, using the great amount of information, the system is able to calculate which vehicle reach a specific stop in which time, so this information is then added to displays of  mobile phones, Internet, or on 257 boards located in the capital city.

To ensure reliable communication between dispatchers and drivers the new, state of the art radio system is being built.
