The Tennessee Department of Transportation will use SmartWay satellite traffic control technology from Image Sensing Systems to improve the safety and operation of highways and other forms of transportation.

The state will add approximately 200 units of the RTMS® G4 radar product to its existing state inventory of 1000 units to reduce traffic congestion and improve roadway safety by making emergency response times faster.

The non-intrusive RTMS® radars measure real-time highway traffic flow and wirelessly communicate it to traffic management centres.

The low cost, low power RTMS® will also be installed in Knoxville, Nashville and Memphis.

RTMS® provides a complete portfolio of integrated solutions for highway traffic management, including data collection, incident detection and work zone safety.
