First publishedITS America
Delegates to the ITS America Annual Meeting will have an opportunity of checking Cobalt, Econolite’s the next generation in Advanced Transportation Controller (ATC), which was announced this week. The company states that Cobalt is the first ATC designed to accommodate the mobile needs of today’s traffic management professionals, and features the largest touchscreen display available in a controller. Its intuitive user interface and operating systems make access to essential controller functions easier than ever.
Cobalt was designed to incorporate leading-edge mobile technology and user-friendly applications to help make controller operations simpler to access and manage. It was developed on the industry ATC hardware standards, and incorporates Econolite’s robust ASC/3 software.
Econolite says its new controller features an environmentally hardened touchscreen interface with the brightest seven-inch colour display available. Cobalt powers the company’s proven ASC/3-based software running with an intuitive graphics-based navigation system that can also be used with tablet or laptop devices. Mobile device connectivity includes Ethernet and USB ports that include support for an external Wi-Fi device. Cobalt also includes a SD port to provide almost unlimited file storage capability.
At the ITS America Annual Meeting, Econolite will also feature a comprehensive line of ITS systems, including its industry-leading Centracs ATMS. As the company points out, the software’s powerful proven transportation management capabilities can help agencies realise enhanced levels of performance through Centracs’ sophisticated yet simple to use optional modules, including adaptive signal control, travel time, automated data collection, measurement of effectiveness reporting, and asset management. In addition, Econolite will showcase its suite of ITS enabling non-intrusive detection systems – Autoscope and RTMS.
