McCain is to upgrade San Francisco’s traffic signal infrastructure through the introduction of 400 M advanced transportation controller (ATC) cabinets over the next three years.
Reza Roozitalab, McCain’s vice president of hardware engineering, says: “Our M ATC cabinet features two front side-by-side doors, ideal for areas with narrow sidewalks so maintenance teams can work inside without completely blocking the walkway.”
Also, the M ATC cabinets feature a ‘lamp out monitoring algorithm’ which identifies an intersection where signals have failed and can fix them.
San Francisco plans to place a battery back-up system to help keep intersections running in the event of a power outage.
As part of the contract, McCain will also deploy 140 Caltrans-style ATC cabinets – including the 352i and the 350i for LED intersections.
McCain’s cabinets house computers and sensors which control signal timing to help facilitate the safe movement of vehicles, people and goods.
In September, McCain delivered 10 ATC cabinets for the My Figueroa Corridor Streetscape Project in Los Angeles.
