Texas-based transportation equipment manufacturer Trafficware has been selected by the City of Cupertino in California to deliver its ATMS central transportation management system to control traffic operations across the city.
Now part of the Cubic Corporation’s Transportation Systems (CTS) business division, Trafficware’s agreement includes services to install as well as integrate existing and new intersection traffic controllers city-wide.
As one of the world’s most advanced central management systems, ATMS distinguishes itself by offering intelligent, data-rich intersection management and a complete set of functionalities across its two-dozen modules.
It is the only system of its kind with a business intelligence layer. The system incorporates a flexible ‘agnostic’ architecture, supporting multiple manufacturers’ devices, as well as integration with other transportation systems.
Recently upgraded to version 2.9, the ATMS platform brings traffic network data into a single repository for a real-time, 360° view of network traffic operations and is a powerful performance and engineering tool that features capabilities developed from direct input from hundreds of ATMS customers from all over the world.
Cubic’s Trafficware has more than 300 major ATMS installations with its equipment deployed at more than 50,000 intersections globally.
Cities such as Houston, Jacksonville, Las Vegas, New Orleans, Palo Alto, Oklahoma City, New Haven, Orlando and Cairo (Egypt), rely on the ATMS system for complex transportation networks, as do the states of New York, Louisiana and South Carolina and some of the largest counties in the USA.
The modular platform serves as the foundation of an effective intelligent transportation system (ITS) platform for smart cities, counties and states. The City of Cupertino will be able to make use of its investment for many years after its initial implementation, as the ATMS platform is designed to scale as an agency expands its specific needs.
The city will be able to add modules to cater for the adoption of future connected and autonomous vehicles (CAV) and Internet of Things edge technologies to measure and improve the overall flow of traffic. The ATMS platform has other modules available, including:
• SynchroGreen Adaptive Signal Control that adjusts timing plans based on current traffic conditions;
• Traffic Engineering Asset Management Software (TEAMS) that helps agencies track their inventories of traffic equipment;
• TidalWave, an award-winning, live streaming traffic information service powered by intelligent edge analytics;
• Signal Performance Measures datalogging system;
• Emergency vehicle route modifications;
• WEB that disseminates real-time traffic and congestion information to the public;
• TSP (Transit Signal Priority) for public transportation;
• StreetSync for field configuration through a tablet or laptop computer;
• CCTV camera integration;
• CMS (Changeable Message Signs) control and management;
• Alpha UPS (Uninterruptable Power Supply) configuration.
“We have been fortunate to be the technology provider of choice for innovative cities such as Cupertino,” said Jeff Spinazze, vice president of sales for Trafficware at CTS. “We are pleased that Cupertino is joining Silicon Valley ATMS customers, such as Palo Alto and Santa Clara County, as well as the three-dozen others across California, and we welcome them into the Cubic family.”
