Sean Mulligan of Parsons with the cutting-edge technology
Parsons, which has an enviable international reputation for industry best practices, interoperability standards, and research and development, is featuring some of the industry’s most exciting and cutting-edge ITS capabilities. These include an innovative software suite called Intelligent NETworks (iNET), an advanced transportation management system (ATMS) that is revolutionising the way transportation agencies, including tollways, monitor and manage their transportation systems.
Parsons says iNET, an application that is used to collect, disseminate, and manage transportation systems and information through a single, integrated piece of software, has helped agencies with significant improvements that achieve their goals for improved safety, mobility, and environmental benefits.
These improvements include reductions in vehicle emissions and fuel consumption, as well as primary and secondary incidents, severity of incidents, roadway fatalities, and injuries, ultimately increasing roadway throughput and travel time reliability. iNET is designed for implementing strategies that will improve transportation safety, mobility, and the environment.
In addition to iNET, Parsons is highlighting its integrated corridor management (ICM) solutions; its National Transportation Communication for ITS Protocol (NTCIP) products and consulting services, which allow traffic management systems to communicate to field devices; and its Emergency Transportation Operations team, consisting of internationally recognised experts who have developed and implemented some of the world’s most progressive traffic incident management programs.
