The city of Merida, Mexico, is deploying intelligent traffic management technologies to help manage urban mobility and optimise and improve traffic flow.

 

Cubic Transportation Systems (CTS) has partnered with Vixionere Sapi de CV for the multimillion-dollar contract to install its Trafficware ATMS central transport management platform, controllers and Transit Signal Priority software.

 

Project intersections

 

The solutions will be integrated with Cubic’s NextBus real-time platform, at all project intersections. Cubic will also install the SynchroGreen Adaptive Signal Control module at more than 50 intersections.

 

“We are excited for the opportunity to partner with Vixionere and the city of Merida, Mexico to build its transportation management infrastructure as it becomes a part of the next generation of smart cities,” said Joe Custer, vice president and general manager of Trafficware, Cubic Transportation Systems.

 

“This award is a great example of synergies between the CTS solutions. The Trafficware-NextBus solution designed for Merida is ideal for transportation agencies around the world that are looking to work smarter and integrate multiple modes of transportation to improve the utilisation of their roadways and transportation networks.”

Bus stop arrival software will analyse whether the transit vehicle is ahead or behind schedule and will appropriately manage the signal to ensure the transit vehicle maintains its schedule

According to CTS, the Trafficware ATMS brings traffic network data into a single repository for a real-time, integrated view of traffic operations. The interface will use Cubic’s NextBus real-time bus positioning information to give signal priority to transit vehicles.

 

By utilising NextBus’ predictive bus stop arrival software, the system will analyse whether the transit vehicle is ahead or behind schedule and will appropriately manage the signal to ensure the transit vehicle maintains its schedule, said CTS.

 

Trafficware’s SynchroGreen Adaptive Signal Control reduces delay and travel time by adjusting signal timing plans in real-time based on current traffic conditions.

 

Cubic claims there are more than 300 Trafficware ATMS installations with hardware and software products deployed at some 50,000 intersections on four continents.

 

NextBus provides real-time passenger information systems to over 100 transit agencies, organisations, institutions, and airports, reportedly serving more than 300 million travellers each year.
