Michael Mauritz of Transcore with the TransSuite software
Expanding upon more than 17,000 intersections already managed by TransCore’s TransSuite software, the city of Pittsburgh announced it has selected TransCore’s TransSuite Traffic Management Software solution to manage its traffic signal operations. The project will initially integrate 130 of the city’s intersections.
As the 20th largest metropolitan area in the US, Pittsburgh is no stranger to traffic. It’s also home to numerous special events in the Central Business District. To reduce the city’s need to manually control traffic during these planned events, the TransSuite traffic control system (TCS) module will provide Pittsburgh with enhanced management capabilities and will be integrated with the city’s legacy controllers.
TransSuite is a family of traffic management software products that can operate independently or as part of a suite, depending on each city’s unique needs. For Pittsburgh, TransCore will integrate TransSuite’s traffic control, traveller information, traffic management and video control modules.
TransCore’s Michael Mauritz stresses that TransSuite provides both value and feature-rich functionality. “TransSuite provides traffic operations and maintenance staff with an array of software tools that make managing traffic a better experience for everyone.
Some of these tools include real-time, time-space diagrams, performance measurement and utilisation reports, and software applications that give maintenance staff the freedom to access controllers locally – saving time and money.”
