Alliance improves traffic time awareness on arterial routes

TransCore : 03 June, 2009  (Company News)
Agreement between TransCore and Sensys Networks brings vehicle travel time system into traffic management software suite
TransCore, which has provided intelligent transportation system (ITS) products and services to 50 state departments of transportation, and Berkeley, Calif.-based Sensys Networks have announced they will integrate the Sensys Arterial Travel Time System into TransCore's TransSuite advanced traffic management system, used by more than 40 state and local governments.

Arterial traffic accounts for more than half of all traffic today, offering a tremendous opportunity for congestion reduction through the expansion of ITS systems. Yet, compared to freeways or urban areas with prominent RFID tag populations associated with electronic toll collection, there is limited data sources to measure arterial travel times. Measuring arterial travel time is further complicated due to traffic signal delays, cars switching lanes, and generally much shorter and more diverse travel patterns.

The Sensys Networks Arterial Travel Time System employs breakthrough technology called signature re-identification to measure and report real-time travel data along a city corridor. This is the first commercially available, infrastructure-based system that provides real-time travel times. TransSuite can now deliver the entire distribution of travel times along with a whole host of other real-time performance parameters for urban arteries.

David Sparks, executive vice president for TransCore's ITS Group, explained, "By incorporating these key performance parameters for arterial roadways, particularly in real-time, traffic engineers can add a level of sophistication and responsiveness to dynamic traffic conditions as they happen."

This alliance marks the first time an advanced traffic management system can provide real-time arterial travel times, beyond the use of RFID. City transportation engineers can utilize arterial travel time, along with speed, occupancy, and volume measures to further manage and alleviate traffic congestion.

Amine Haoui, CEO of Sensys Networks, continued, "We believe the integration of the Sensys Networks Arterial Travel Time Systems into the TransSuite family of ITS products will provide customers with key arterial performance parameters that have never been available until now. We are very pleased to be working with TransCore to bring this new capability to the market."

By collaborating together the two companies will reduce long development and integration cycles and provide an off-the-shelf product that provides real time, arterial travel times along corridors. TransSuite currently provides users with software modules for ITS devices including traffic signal controllers, freeway management data collection, ramp metering, dynamic message signs, CCTV controls and display management, incident management and response, and centre-to-centre interfaces.
