Right: Econolite claims the Centracs graphical user interface provides traffic professionals with a full-featured suite of information and management tools
Econolite’s latest Advanced Transportation Management System (ATMS) software, Centracs, harnesses the power of Microsoft Presentation Foundation technology to provide a robust and cost effective system for improving intersection efficiency and traffic signal coordination.
Gary Duncan, Econolite’s chief technology officer, says, “Econolite, for many years, has been a leader in providing transportation management systems that meet and exceed the system requirements of the traffic control industry. We believe we have exceeded our own expectations with the development of Centracs, a system that provides the traffic engineer with a comprehensive solution, capable of successfully reducing operational costs, managing maintenance resource allocations, and reducing traffic congestion.”
Microsoft’s Presentation Foundation technology allows Centracs to provide a modular graphical user interface and unique display “container” technology, which Econolite claims provides the traffic professional with a full-featured suite of information and management tools to monitor and control their transport system.
Eric Raamot, Econolite’s vice president of engineering says, “The Engineering team at Econolite is committed to evaluating the transportation management system industry and documenting the needs of system users. We are excited to bring you the culmination of our findings in this highly intuitive ATMS product.
“With Centracs’ true GIS (Geographic Information Systems) map-centric features and the latest Microsoft SQL database reporting tools, the user now has the power to develop a wide range of civil planning and traffic operations strategies.”
Centracs provides real-time status and control of all traffic control devices and delivers support for a wide variety of mobility solutions. It can also share timely and accurate traffic information with other agencies and neighboring jurisdictions.
