Cubic Expands Trafficware Central Transportation Management System in Connecticut
Cubic Transportation Systems’ Trafficware Central Management System Brings Traffic Network Data into a Single Repository for a Real-Time, Integrated View of Traffic Operations
Cubic Corporation announced that the Town of Manchester, Connecticut has selected Cubic Transportation Systems (CTS) business division’s Trafficware ATMS as its central traffic management system to power its traffic management citywide.
“We welcome the Town of Manchester as a customer and wish them the same success as our other great customers in Connecticut.”
Manchester joins cities in the state such as Bridgeport, New Haven, Hartford, Stamford and Norwalk in deploying Trafficware ATMS, which provides agencies with a powerful tool to effectively monitor and control traffic and its intelligent transport systems (ITS) infrastructure.
“Cities and communities around the world recognize the immediate need for intelligent technology so they can deploy smart traffic intersections today and prepare for a connected vehicle world of tomorrow,” says Jon Newhard, vice president and general manager of Cubic ITS, Cubic Transportation Systems. “We welcome the Town of Manchester as a customer and wish them the same success as our other great customers in Connecticut.”
“The neighboring cities of Hartford, West Hartford and Windsor have deployed the Trafficware ATMS system to address the considerable complexities of a traffic network that also includes major interstate corridors. We believe Cubic’s smart city solutions will serve Manchester well,” added Newhard.
Cubic’s Trafficware ATMS is the most technologically advanced traffic management system in the market. It is also the only system with a business intelligence layer that incorporates a flexible architecture, supporting multiple manufacturers’ devices, as well as providing integration with other transportation systems. Additionally, agencies that purchase ATMS will benefit from new releases as the technology advances.
This type of technology is essential because it serves as the mainframe that aggregates different sources of traffic network data into a single repository. This feature allows traffic engineers an immediate 360-degree view of their transportation network, so they can respond to immediate concerns and provide long-range planning and analysis to proactively manage congestion.
The Trafficware ATMS platform also has the functionality to support connected/autonomous vehicles, SynchroGreen Adaptive Traffic Signal Control, Transit Signal Priority (TSP) for buses and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies to measure and improve overall flow of traffic, safety as well as reduce emissions.
Manchester joins a rapidly growing number of agencies around the world that count on Cubic to provide technology that manages urban mobility. There are more than 300 Trafficware ATMS installations with hardware and software products deployed at over 50,000 intersections on four continents.
