Building on the continued development of the latest cloud-based traffic technology, Siemens has released what it says is an entirely new approach to traffic management, information and control using secure hosted cloud infrastructure, improving reliability and releasing users from owning and maintaining dedicated servers.
Designed using the latest web technologies and high contrast colours, with versions tailored for both desktop and mobile devices, Stratos Emerge is an additional module to Stratos which allows local authorities to quickly and easily configure and automatically publish traffic network information to drivers.
According to Siemens, network operators can choose what to publish with the new module including live traffic data, car park information, variable message signs, collisions, incidents, roadworks and events. Live traffic data can also be complemented with information about the local area including train stations, ports and airports as well as tourist information points of interest with photographs and links to external websites.
