The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) has selected TransCore ITS to provide its TransSuite Traffic Control System, which will be used for the management and centralized monitoring of existing traffic signals across the state. As part of the project, the TransSuite software will be installed at Caltrans’ headquarters in Sacramento and its 12 districts. Additional intersections will be brought online over time. Intersections will be integrated into the TransSuite system using serial and/or IP-based communications. The centralized system is scheduled to be fully operational in all 12 Caltrans districts by September 2013. The software system is already in use by the traffic departments of 10 California cities.
The TransSuite system will be the cornerstone of Caltrans’ strategy to proactively manage traffic through the monitoring of traffic signals and traffic conditions at state-operated intersections. As part of the project, TransCore will develop an interface to the Caltrans controller firmware that will support ‘once-per-second’ communication, plus complete database upload/download for the local controllers. The company’s TransSuite traffic management system will provide Caltrans with a robust, low-risk, highly flexible controller/firmware/central software system, as well as a means to expand to other ITS devices in the future, such as CCTV and variable message signs (VMS). Michael Mauritz, TransCore’s managing director for the Western USA region, commented, “TransSuite has become the leading traffic control system because of its core technology and ease of use, as well as its scalability and expandability, which were key features in Caltrans’ selection.”
