Image Sensing Systems will be highlighting how its RTMS Echo is part of the technology used in the Wisconsin Department of Transportation’s first flex lane on the Madison Beltline in Dane County.  The flex lane is an innovative solution to ease backups during the busiest times and provide reliability for motorists. The Echo monitors the traffic volume on the highway's mainline lanes. When traffic levels hit a certain volume threshold, a notification is sent, and the system automatically opens the median shoulder lane to allow vehicles to start using the lane. The additional lane is typically used during weekday morning and afternoon rush hours. Since the Flex Lane has been in use, travel times have reduced on average by 45% and drivers have noticed less congestion and traffic backups on the Beltline.
