Trafficware and Naztec have merged
Simulation, optimisation and adaptive control software specialist Trafficware has combined its talents with those of advanced traffic control hardware and software manufacturer Naztec to form what is being claimed to be the pre-eminent technology-based company in the traffic management sector. The merged companies will work under the Trafficware name from the recently completed Naztec Technology Center, a 90,000 square-foot purpose-built facility in Sugar Land, Texas.
The company will be led by ITS industry veteran John Worthington, who joined Naztec as its CEO in 2011.
“The combination of the two companies gives our customers the best of both worlds,” Worthington says. “From front-end modelling and design via system implementation and control to on-going optimisation, we have best-in-class solutions. With the capabilities we now have under one roof, we will be able to offer fully integrated, enterprise-wide systems to help our customers better manage North America’s roadways.”
Trafficware’s software products include Synchro and SimTraffic, market-leading software applications for modelling traffic flow and optimising traffic signal timing, and the SynchroGreen software application for efficient, cost-effective real-time adaptive control. Naztec has built every major component of an intersection control system in-house; its suite of advanced traffic management system software provides scalable, centralised solutions for traffic management, including emergency vehicle pre-emption.
