Software only traffic controller solution
First publishedin ITS International
Recognising that the desire to reduce operating costs is driving Internet Protocol (IP) communications to become more commonplace in the traffic control environment, Peek will use Traffex to unveil an important innovation. The company is now enabling UG405 operation directly within the PTC-1 family of traffic controllers (PTC-1 and PTC-1 Lite). This will enable a PTC-1 family IP controller to be connected directly to an Ethernet connection at the roadside, without the need for an intervening Peek Chameleon or third-party UG405-compliant outstation unit. This 'software only' solution offers financial benefits, not only by lowering the initial cost of the outstation equipment but also resulting in a reduced demand for maintenance.
Peek will also use Traffex to share its wider expertise as part of the Imtech Traffic & Infra division which covers public lighting, tunnels, control centre solutions and infrastructure services.
