City of Chula Vista to use Trafficware’s SynchroGreen adaptive signal technology


The City of Chula Vista in Southern California, US, has selected Trafficware’s SynchroGreen adaptive signal technology in order to provide smart signalling systems at intersections across the region.

With the new technology in place, the smart signal intersection will be adapted to traffic patterns in real time.

The SynchroGreen adaptive system has the ability to improve travel times, minimise delays, and reduce emissions at intersections by making real-time and dynamic synchronisation decisions.

As part of this initiative, Trafficware will work with consultant Urban Systems Associates and Southwest Traffic Systems to deploy the comprehensive solution across major intersections in the city.

The system will be used at 28 intersections in order to optimise timing along three major arterials in Chula Vista, including Telegraph Canyon Road, East H Street, and Otay Lakes Road.

"The SynchroGreen adaptive system has the ability to improve travel times, minimise delays, and reduce emissions at intersections by making real-time and dynamic synchronisation decisions."

The routes identified by the authorities carry nearly 40,000 to 50,000 vehicles per day, providing access to and from Interstate 805 and State Route 125. They also give direct access to schools and a community college located on the eastern end of the project area.

Due to the local significance of these streets, the transport authorities have decided to install the adaptive traffic signal control system that can respond to the current traffic patterns.

The new technology is scheduled to be deployed by the first quarter of next year.

Trafficware senior vice-president Jeff Spinazze said: “This technology will not only address complex traffic problems today, but will also address initiatives like Connected / Autonomous Vehicles and Signal Performance Measures.”
