PageTitleHtmlCSST (Research for Transport Systems) SubTitleHtmlCSST (Research Centre for Transport Systems) has been conducting national and international studies in the fields of transport systems and passenger and freight traffic for over 40 years. TextCenterFounded in 1968 by Mario Del Viscovo, a professor from the University of Rome “La Sapienza,” the Centre was later acquired by Fiat Group in the 1980s. CSST brings its specialised capabilities and expertise to Fiat as well as to third party clients, providing practical and valuable information related to the automotive industry. Its services and resources include: modeling tools, statistics, transport systems and traffic informatics. CSST has operations in Turin and Pomigliano where its expertise and experience ranges from basic transport studies to traffic modeling and simulation, innovative system design solutions for business intelligence and data collection, automotive industry statistics and software development for the implementation of innovative applications. MoreContentHtmlThe Centre works with various areas of application which include marketing and economic studies, logistics, environmental monitoring and incidental logistics, growth studies on population density with regard to fleet management, analysis of traffic scenarios and transport planning, intelligent transport systems (control systems and traffic management for real-time systems, fleet management) and info-mobility. In the automotive sector, CSST provides support for: economic studies; market research analysis; forecasting and analysis of fleet scenarios; forecasting market demand; assessment of political, economic and financial impacts regarding sector growth; customer satisfaction modules; the creation of dashboards with key performance indicators; customer segmentation; geo-marketing; competitive analysis; design; implementation and web survey analysis. CSST conducts studies, analysis, evaluations and projects in the field of mobility and logistics with the main objective of streamlining the activities related to the movement of goods through "city logistics," which involves co-modality and integrated logistics. CSST has a particular proficiency in identifying innovative solutions for systems and products, evaluating them in terms of environmental sustainability. CSST designs and manufactures: automatic control and traffic management systems for urban, suburban and highway use; supervisory systems for integrating information on traffic conditions; management coordination strategies which provide data for portals available for public consultation; real-time information systems for users; centralised control systems to monitor the state of operating vehicles; systems for the management and centralised control of parking lots and methodologies for system evaluation, with particular attention to the innovative technologies on board vehicles. CSST has developed modeling platforms for both traffic simulation and the evaluation of environmental impact (MT-Model), for real-time traffic management (MATRIX). CSST actively collaborates with other industrial research centres, national and international public institutions, numerous academic bodies and universities, as well as the European Community on major research and development programs in the transport and automotive fields.
