Daniel Nelson of Siemens displays the company's latest products
Siemens Intelligent Traffic Systems has introduced several new and innovative products this year which will be highlighted here at the ITS America Annual Meeting. The new products include the m60 series traffic controllers, Tactics 3 traffic management system and Tactics smartGuard cloud-based traffic management system.
The new m60 series traffic controllers include the m62 ATC, m62 ATC LITE and the m62 NEMA models. The m60 series builds on Siemens’ m50 hardware platform, making the m60 series compatible with previous versions of the Siemens Sepac software. The m60 ATC reduces procurement costs for transportation agencies by up to 50 with the ability to convert legacy m50 controllers to the latest ATC standard without needing to purchase new controllers.
Tactics 3 is a 3rd generation traffic management system in the Tactics portfolio. Tactics 3 user interfaces are designed to quickly and easily provide a detailed overview of the traffic system. The scalable packages including Tactics View, Tactics Marc, Tactics Central, Tactics Enterprise and the newly introduced Tactics smartGuard which can be tailored to the specific needs of an agency or region.
Tactics smartGuard reduces the complexity of traditional centralised traffic management systems by offering a simple, easy-to-operate web based interface. It operates centrally on the cloud and therefore eliminates the need to invest in traffic management servers and other IT-related resources. Available on fixed and mobile devices, Tactics smartGuard enables engineers and city managers to access pertinent, up-to-date traffic information at any time anywhere. The software includes detailed maps, status updates and the ability to change traffic plans. Security is certified by TUV, a worldwide safety and certification agency, and includes two-step authentication to ensure changes to the system are made only by authorised staff.
