New generation of controllers for traffic management from Siemens
27/03/2014 Highways Reporters
New software that helps reduce downtime and increase road safety has been unveiled by Siemens at Intertraffic.
The company used the exhibition in Amsterdam, Netherlands to present Sitraffic sX - its new controllers for traffic lights and detectors.
The technology allows operators to extend the functions of controllers already deployed in the field by means of remote updates. There is no longer any need to interrupt ongoing operations. This is made possible by an additional real-time processor that can take over control of a set of traffic lights if required. Dangerous “lights out” situations are prevented and the dangerous traffic conditions minimised. Remote maintenance can also be carried out without shutting down the system.
The new Sitraffic sX generation of controllers is internationally compatible and can be extended by adding new modules. It can also be deployed as a stand-alone device with a virtual traffic management solution or for comprehensively optimised and coordinated traffic control systems.
Sitraffic sX is part of a web-based, scalable Sitraffic family with which even smaller towns can realise efficient traffic control.
