Managing traffic has always been viewed as a job for legislators. Statutes and directives define regulations that apply to various classes of vehicles, types of roads, and environmental conditions. At its core, such legislation has three objectives: to ensure the safety and security of everyone on the road, to enable traffic to flow as freely as possible, and to promote the responsible handling of environmental resources.
Technical solutions have long been a means of furthering political objectives. In 1868, the first traffic lights were installed in London. Today, modern traffic volumes call for new political and technical approaches. The methods applied vary from country to country, city to city, and road to road. Our technologies can be adapted to any of these.
We offer traffic management solutions for:
More than 40 different traffic management systems delivered.
Our portfolio of Advanced Traffic Management (ATM) services includes over 40 systems based on our DYNAC® software, that provide integrated management of traffic and operations for critical infrastructure around the world. Kapsch has designed and delivered a wide range of systems - from those that provide a complete overview of traffic situations to those that aid traffic management personnel in making critical decisions during emergency response situations. DYNAC’s modular design allows for full integration of ATMS and SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition), making it an ideal solution for collecting traffic and facilities-related data from highways, managed lanes, and bridges and tunnels. This information is delivered to a traffic management center where it is processed for actionable use by road operators, government authorities, and road users.
We also offer our customers an add-on solution for electronic toll collection consisting of a telematics platform in which the information collected by a toll collection system can be used in traffic management and planning.
