TransCore and NYCDOT win IRF award

TransCore and the New York City Department of Transportation (NYCDOT) have won the International Road Federation’s (IRF) Global Road Achievement Award (GRAA) for the deployment of the Midtown in Motion Adaptive Signal Control system. The GRAAs are the most prestigious awards of the international road sector. NYCDOT and TransCore received the award in the Traffic Management and Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) category. New York’s state-of-the-art ITS Infrastructure Deployment Program includes modernization of the citywide computerized traffic control system, which monitors and controls 12,400 traffic signals throughout the five boroughs; creating the largest system of its type in North America. The program also includes deployment of Manhattan’s Midtown in Motion advanced active traffic management system.

TransCore designed New York’s next generation traffic control system that includes the company’s TransSuite traffic management software and its multiprotocol Encompass radio frequency identification (RFID) readers, KLD’s adaptive control module, Advanced Transportation Controllers provided by Peek traffic, and other related equipment using the New York City Wireless Network (NYCWiN). Accepting the award, TransCore’s president, Tracy Marks, said, “We’re honored to receive this award and thank the extremely talented and dedicated individuals that served on our team. We are proud to have served the City of New York as it undertook such a monumental task and believe it will serve as a model for other ITS deployments around the world.” Mohamad Talas, New York’s deputy director of systems engineering in the ITS management department, commented, “We are pleased in winning the IRF award for the NYC ITS Modernization Project and hope our success will provide a new real-world model for the use of current advanced technologies to support active traffic management in big cities.”
