First publishedon www.ITSInternational.com
has been awarded a contract from Highways England
(HE) to install a Tunnel Management Control System (TMCS) for its tunnel estate as part of a project that foresees the option of implementing the solution in all 13 tunnels managed by HE for €10 million (£8,900,00).
The tunnel estate will be equipped with Indra’s smart management platform Horus, which will be deployed in the cloud for controlling the infrastructure from any centre.
enables the integrated management of the tunnel's different Intelligent Traffic Systems (ITS) and safety systems, allowing for automated incident management. It provides real-time information and a perspective on everything that occurs in the tunnel, enabling decision-making and operational efficiency; in both routine and emergency situations. In addition, the system aims to reduce the risk of incidents and speeds up management, optimises resource management and offers drivers greater safety and service quality.
The TMCS also permits the integration of multiple tunnels for centralised management using a single interface.
