Florida DOT approves Econolite’s EOS traffic controller software


Econolite has announced its next-generation Advanced Transportation Controller (ATC) software, EOS, has been added to the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) Approved Products List (APL) under the 671-017-010 certification for the Econolite Cobalt ATC.

EOS is already deployed at more than 3,500 intersections throughout North America, making it one of the fastest accepted and installed traffic controller software systems. Designed to power Cobalt, as well as properly configured ATC-style controllers from other manufacturers, EOS represents a breakthrough in ATC software. In addition, EOS provides enhanced features, helping prepare transportation agencies and cities to deploy Connected Vehicle and Smart City applications.

“We are excited about the Econolite EOS controller software addition to the FDOT APL,” says Jim Madden, Econolite regional vice president of eastern sales. “EOS is designed with the future in mind to improve traffic control capabilities, while supporting future Smart City and connected vehicle programs. We look forward to EOS and Cobalt controllers helping provide Florida cities with the safest and most efficient intersections.”

EOS provides a highly intuitive user interface that has been designed to maximize usability of traditional displays, as well as incorporating a new web user interface. With robust features enhancing safety and efficiency at the traffic intersection, EOS has the ability to dynamically respond and adjust to changes in plans, field conditions, and real-time data from priority vehicles.
