The undertaking was implemented between 2019 and 2022 by Yunex Traffic. Its total cost together with the reconstruction of intersections amounted to approximately PLN 121 million, of which nearly 85 per cent is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund, from the pool for the so-called low-emission urban transport. These funds were included in the Regional Operational Programme of the Silesian Voivodship.
The ITS system in Tychy was created on the basis of the most modern existing solutions as well as future technologies, including, among others, cooperation of road infrastructure with autonomous vehicles.
"Tychy is the first city in Poland to receive a key solution so that autonomous vehicles can also be operated in the future. These possibilities result from the functionality of special transmitters in V2X technology, transmitting real-time information about road conditions directly to the vehicles. Yunex Traffic implements these systems in several locations in the USA, as well as in Germany, Holland, Great Britain or Singapore. Thanks to the ITS Tychy project, solutions are also appearing in Poland - adds Dariusz Obcowski, President of the Management Board of Yunex Sp. z o.o.
Apart from Tychy, Yunex Sp. z o.o. realizes ITS projects in the biggest Polish cities - Warsaw, Cracow, Poznań, Białystok, Rzeszów, on express roads and tunnels all over Poland, as well as manages the created technical infrastructure.
