Trafficware releases Version 9.0 of Synchro plus SimTraffic

To mark the 20th anniversary of Synchro plus SimTraffic, Trafficware has released version 9.0 of its popular and widely used traffic optimization and simulation tool. The latest version focuses on new user features, including the ability to create custom toolbars, view ports and one-click intersection coding with the new template feature, all within an enhanced user interface. Added functionality for optimization includes weighting factors during the signal optimization routine, in order to further refine signal timing plans aimed at improving arterial traffic flow. Additional detailed analysis can be performed using the new result summary table. Implementation of the HCM 2010 method is updated in Synchro 9 to include the analysis for pedestrians at two-way stop control intersections.

“We are committed to bringing innovation and technology to the traffic industry, as well as a broad portfolio of products from planning and simulation, through operations and optimization. Our customers rely on us to equip them with the ability to solve the most complex traffic management problems,” said Jon Newhard, CEO of Trafficware. “Improving traffic management starts with planning and optimization, and with Synchro as an industry standard, we are continuing to invest in innovation for the sake of the industry, whether that investment is in organic product development, partnership, or acquisition. The release of version 9 is a major step forward and we are committed to additional investment in and enhancement of this industry-leading product.”

After participating in the Synchro 9 beta development program, Matthew Johnson, president of Johnson Traffic Design, said, “I love the upgrades Trafficware made in Synchro 9. The user interface improvements are great, like view ports and dockable and customizable toolbars. Applying the new weighting factors during optimization makes timing corridors and networks easier and produces a better coordinated timing plan. With the new ability to export the optimization results, I am able to review the results of my modifications quickly and easily.”
