It does this, says Parsons, by monitoring and recommending actions using real-time traffic monitoring, predictive analytics, active traffic management, integrated corridor management, dynamic device control, intelligent decision support, artificial intelligence, connected and autonomous vehicle integration, mobile applications and free-language voice response.
The cloud-based system is also sharable. It can be operated by multiple agencies simultaneously, allowing for seamless inter-agency cooperation and more efficient operations.
Parsons says iNET has been making a difference for customers in more than 40 cities, making it the most operated traffic management software in the world. It has been shown to reduce accidents by 40% while increasing traffic flow by 22%. Overall freeway delay is reduced up to 30% and throughput is increased up to 28%.
Importantly, the arrival time of emergency responders is faster by 15% and on the environmental side, carbon monoxide and other emissions-related pollutants are cut by as much as 30%.
