State-of-the-art traffic signal management in Sweden
- Kapsch TrafficCom to provide a national system for control and supervision of traffic light facilities
Vienna, February 13, 2024 – Kapsch TrafficCom is pleased to announce it has been selected by the Swedish Transport Administration, Trafikverket, to undertake a full replacement of their national centralized traffic signal control and monitoring system.
This project marks a pivotal step forward in advancing the country's traffic management systems. The company was awarded the contract to implement and maintain a new national centralized traffic signal control and monitoring system, connecting Trafikverket’s traffic light facilities across Sweden.
Under the agreement, Kapsch TrafficCom will implement its innovative, state-of-the-art product EcoTrafiX™ Command and adapt it to the Nordic RSMP-protocol. The implementation promises to enhance the efficiency and reliability of Sweden's centralized traffic signal control and monitoring system through cutting-edge technology that integrates with Trafikverket's existing infrastructure.
EcoTrafiX™ Command will be managed through Trafikverket’s road operative environment. The system instance in Stockholm will control and monitor the traffic signal facilities in the regions North, Mid and East. The instance in Gothenburg will control and monitor the traffic signal facilities in the regions West, South and Southeast.
Mikael Hejel, Area Sales Manager Nordics at Kapsch TrafficCom, comments: “We are honored to be chosen by Trafikverket for this critical upgrade. Through the implementation of our EcoTrafiX software, we have shown that our product is not only viable for running traffic lights on a national scale, but also aligns with Nordic standards for managing traffic lights.”
This collaboration between Kapsch TrafficCom and Trafikverket signifies a milestone in the use of advanced technology to manage traffic flow and safety in Sweden. The EcoTrafiX™ software is designed to be easily implemented within the existing infrastructure, ensuring a smooth transition and minimal disruption to current operations.
