is working with local partner Evocon to provide its urban mobility management solution EcoTrafix
to the city of Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic.
EcoTrafix is a software suite which gathers all traffic data into a real-time dynamic visualisation which, Kapsch says, allows operators to further optimise traffic.
The €18 million contract is with the local authority, Instituto Nacional de Tránsito y Transporte Terrestre, and includes a 17-month period for the implementation of new infrastructure as well as four years of technical operation.
The first part of the tender covers engineering, delivery, installation, testing, commissioning and the deployment of EcoTrafix.
According to Kapsch, this will include 100 new intersections, 2,200 traffic lights, 40 CCTV cameras, 400 vehicle detector cameras, variable message signs and control centre equipment. Maintenance will cover 260 existing intersections including traffic lights and CCTV, as well as the newly-installed equipment.
