Local authorities in the town of Luton, UK, have chosen TRL Software’s UTC powered by Scoot 7 as a traffic management solution.
The cloud-based system is designed to improve active management of the signal network, controlling Luton Council and Central Bedfordshire Council’s traffic signals.  
TRL says the deployment contributes to the Luton 2040 plan, which aims to make the town "healthy, fair and sustainable".  
Hazel Simmons, leader of Luton Council said: “A cloud-based traffic management system that promotes active travel, keeps traffic moving and reduces congestion will support our Net Zero targets and help improve air quality."
Paul Zanelli, director for TRL Software, says the product was "conceived to minimise vehicle stopping times to reduce congestion and pollution".
