Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) has chosen Kapsch TrafficCom (Kapsch) to design and deploy an advanced traffic management system (ATMS) across the US state.

The contract has an initial duration of 24 months and covers the design and implementation of the system. It also offers additional maintenance options.

Kapsch’s office in Duluth, Georgia, will manage the project.

Kapsch ATMS will replace the current NaviGAtor system, which was deployed in 1996. It will act as the basis for the state’s intelligent transport system applications.

With the implementation of the Kapsch ATMS, Georgia will be able to monitor its state and interstate roadways and arterials.

Kapsch ATMS enables easy and comprehensive road supervision, as well as provide data analytics and metrics and reporting facilities to manage present road systems that feature reversible and managed lanes.

Built on Kapsch’s next-generation Dynac platform, the new ATMS will integrate data drawn from other transportation networks, equipment on the roadside, connected vehicle equipment, traditional traffic detectors and floating car data.

Through an open API, Kapsch ATMS will enable third parties to access this data, as well as those using GDOT’s traveller information website.

Kapsch will use advanced algorithms to streamline traffic flow within the state’s road network.

Equipped with these facilities, GDOT will be able to improve incident response times and streamline decision paths.

It will make use of additional data to optimise road management strategies.
