Communities deploying smart city technology require access to data-driven capabilities like “smart signals” or adaptive signal control
Trafficware has released the latest version of its ATMs.now central traffic management system incorporating more than 20 updates and new features.
Additional features and reports included in version 2.7 are expanded integration of BlueTOAD vehicle and travel-time data which have been informed by input from ATMS.now customers from around the world.
“Transportation authorities invested in ATMS.now because they wanted the latest technology in their central transportation management system. Trafficware has had a steady cadence of biannual releases of ATMS.now over the past few years to keep pace with the changes in technology and the needs of our customer base,” said Jon Newhard, CEO, Trafficware.
“These agencies wanted confidence their technology could grow with the future of smart cities. We take pride in making ATMS.now central traffic management technology the central hub of advanced capabilities including the only central transportation management system with “productised capabilities” in connected vehicles.
According to the company, one of the most sought-after features is the expanded BlueTOAD integration of real-time vehicle data onto Bing Maps allowing traffic engineers immediate access to the most up-to-date travel times, current speeds, historical speeds, and speed limit data to respond effectively to roadway conditions.
Users will also have the ability to define which devices are displayed on the Bing Map at specified zoom levels for yet another layer of visibility into their transportation network.
Trafficware specialises in research, design, and development of electronic equipment and enterprise software to help support the transportation industry.
Trafficware said it has more than 250 major installations with equipment deployed at more than 40,000 intersections globally.
Cities like Houston, Las Vegas, Orlando, New Orleans, Palo Alto, and Cairo, Egypt, rely on Trafficware’s ATMS.now system for their complex transportation networks as do the states of New York, Louisiana and South Carolina.
The company is backed by KRG Capital Partners, a private equity firm with more than $4bn in capital.
