Adaptive traffic control systems developer, Rhythm Engineering, will be launching CentralSync, the highly anticipated software companion to its InSync traffic congestion system, at the company’s GroupSync 2011 conference on June 8-10 in Kansas City. Traffic engineers from state transportation agencies, local governments, and engineering consulting firms are attending the annual national event in order to learn how to maximize their benefits from the InSync adaptive traffic control system and see the company’s latest traffic control technology, some of which is still in the R&D stage.
The new CentralSync product will give traffic engineers the ability to make traffic flow faster and more smoothly in their communities. The new software system allows engineers to create, modify and test a number of traffic management variables and strategies, in just a few minutes, using the software’s graphic interface. The InSync system adapts traffic signals to actual traffic demand in real-time and is currently installed – or contracted to be installed – at more than 400 intersections in 13 states. Rhythm Engineering says that more agencies in the USA use InSync than all other adaptive traffic control systems combined. Independent studies show that the system reduces vehicle stops by up to 90%, travel time by up to 50%, and fuel consumption and emissions by 20-30%.
“What we are developing now will complement our current tools and greatly improve service to motorists and make life easier and more productive for traffic engineers,” revealed Reggie Chandra, CEO of Rhythm Engineering. “Our mission is to deliver motorists to their loved ones faster and more safely. That is where each of our development projects starts.” The company’s vice president of marketing, Chris Gregory, added: “Our technology is not only making work easier for traffic engineers – it’s also making life better and safer for ordinary Americans. We’re thrilled to be on the forefront of developing new ITS solutions. A key step is meeting with traffic practitioners to hear their challenges, ideas and feedback.”
