Transcore traffic management, traffic signal timing solutions on display
First publishedITS America
At this year’s ITS America Annual Meeting, TransCore will demonstrate two of its traffic management software solutions, TransSuite and SCATS.
To better manage traffic flow in Riyadh, the capital city of Saudi Arabia, TransCore is deploying its TransSuite software solution at 350 of the city’s busiest intersections. By automatically adjusting traffic signal timing in response to real-time traffic conditions, the traffic signals will be able to handle routine, planned and unexpected traffic conditions. Meanwhile, in Washington, D.C., TransCore will provide TransSuite so traffic engineers can more effectively manage congestion and facilitate coordination among 16 different government agencies in the area.
As the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey (PANYNJ) begins work on replacing the Goethals Bridge, PANYNJ has selected TransCore to deploy its SCATS Adaptive Traffic Control System to better prepare for and manage traffic congestion along the re-routed detour through Elizabeth, New Jersey. To help keep traffic moving during bridge construction, SCATS will adjust signal patterns in real-time. So, as delays inevitably occur in the re-routed areas, SCATS can automatically change the frequency and length of traffic signals to clear bottlenecks and improve travel time.
