The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has selected Activu’s visualisation and collaboration technology for integrated traffic management operations across locations in District Two, Florida.

District Two has a main Traffic Management Center (TMC) in Jacksonville, a satellite operation co-located at the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) dispatch office and a third location at one of FDOT’s maintenance facilities.

The single visualisation and collaboration solution will interconnect all three centres of the District and help operators view, share and collaborate on information, to make effective decisions.

Paul Noble, Activu CEO, said: "I am very pleased with our increasing involvement in helping the State of Florida meet its growing traffic challenges with intelligent, cost effective, scalable and secure solutions."

Activu’s intelligent network and open systems based visualisation and collaboration architecture met all of District Two’s requirements, which included system design, interconnectivity, security, scalability, cost, mobility and the Traffic Engineering Research Lab (TERL) certification.

The solution is expected to use the District Two’s existing fibre-optic network, information technology infrastructure and video display devices without any extra purchases.

The network-based system can simultaneously provide access rights and security and can be upgraded to meet the growing traffic. The solution features built-in peer-to-peer collaboration capabilities, to share information with incident-management partners, and integrates mobile information devices into the information sharing, collaboration and decision-making matrix.
