Dan Lukasik of Parsons talks about the I-80 Smart Corridor
As a technology driven firm, Parsons combines its knowledge of infrastructure design, construction, systems and cyber/physical security to deliver practical solutions that help keep cities and people connected safely, efficiently and cost-effectively.
The company is here at the ITS Word Congress Montréal to highlight why it is a leader in the industry and collaborates with global partners to stay at the forefront of emerging technologies.
This includes Parsons’ proprietary, industry-leading advanced transportation management system (ATMS) and Intelligent Networks (iNET) that improve the management, efficiency, effectiveness and safety of transportation networks.
Through 28 independent functional modules, iNET applies state-of-the-art operational solutions to improve freeways, highways, toll roads, transit routes, tunnels, arterial roads and other transportation systems.
From active traffic management components and tolling systems integration to big data analytics and traffic prediction, Parsons says it is changing the way
transportation agencies plan future urban mobility developments as well as manage and operate their current transportation infrastructure.
Parsons is highlighting several smart city solutions. They include a Los Angeles regional ATMS that monitors and controls 12,000 roadway sensors, 1,020 ramp meters, 525 closed-circuit television cameras and 120 dynamic message signs. There’s also the LA Express Park smart parking software as well as positive train control systems, including those for Illinois’ Metra and California’s Metrolink.
Parsons is also providing systems integration for the I-80 Smart Corridor, one of the most sophisticated intelligent transportation systems in California; and the maintenance decision support/automatic vehicle location systems for 650 snowploughs throughout Nebraska, using informatics technology developed by Iteris.
