Following a successful pilot in 2016, which demonstrated significant mobility improvements, including a reduction in travel time and traffic congestion hours, Miami-Dade County’s Department of Transportation and Public Works (DTPW) in Florida has selected Econolite
’s intelligent transportation system (ITS) to upgrade the County’s traffic signals.
As part of the County’s ongoing infrastructure modernisation program, Econolite will install technology and solutions, including adaptive signal control technology to reduce traffic congestion and travel costs.
Econolite will initially upgrade 300 intersections along 12 congestion management corridors in Miami-Dade County with new traffic controllers and Autoscope video detection sensors, along with the Econolite Centracs ATMS (advanced transportation management system) software solution. In addition to adaptive signal control, Econolite’s state-of-the-art route priority, navigation data integration and cybersecurity features will be embedded into the solution.
According to Econolite, the ITS solution includes connected vehicle capabilities and adaptive signal control, which will automatically optimise traffic signal timing continually based on traffic conditions and lay the infrastructure foundation for Smart City capabilities, providing immediate and future benefits now.
