PITTSBURGH--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Intelligent Transportation Society of America Annual Meeting – The City of Cairo, the largest city in the Middle East and the 13th largest metropolitan area in the world, deploys Trafficware’s advanced traffic management technology to improve the City’s transportation network that serves the economic and motorist needs of more than 22 million people.
Based on a competitive bid process, Trafficware’s central management system ATMS.now and the company’s controllers and cabinets were selected for installation on more than 230 of the busiest intersections citywide and its adaptive traffic management system SynchroGreen™ for deployment on 100 critical traffic arteries. The multimillion dollar project is part of the City’s extensive infrastructure initiative to ensure economic growth in this region of Egypt. Prior to this, Cairo did not have any type of traffic signal network in place.
“The City of Cairo aims to build a world-class traffic management system from the ground up,” explained Bassem Khalil, president of SensorTec, the project’s subcontractor. “During the selection process, the team looked throughout the world for partners that would meet the demands of the City. We were impressed by the levels of innovation and quality from Trafficware’s products and their strong commitment to the success of their customer.” SensorTec has now become Trafficware’s partner in the region.
Trafficware’s CEO Jon Newhard added, “SensorTec has an impressive level of commitment to their customers and this strong cultural fit between the companies as well as SensorTec’s local knowledge and technical expertise was extremely valuable to have in a partner.
“Trafficware offered engineering excellence and unwavering commitment to customer service to build Cairo’s system and build it from the ground up, to their specifications, so that it could operate under strenuous performance and environmental conditions,” Newhard continued.
Trafficware worked with the City and with SensorTec to design a cabinet that met the unique needs of the City of Cairo, including voltage, traffic volumes, interoperability to other traffic solutions and environmental conditions. To meet Cairo’s exacting demands for product delivery, Trafficware mobilized a team and ran double manufacturing shifts throughout the summer in its Texas manufacturing facility. “We provided Cairo the highest level of service but also kept our lead times to support our current customers, distributors and contractors.”
Newhard concluded, “In partnership with the City and with SensorTec, Trafficware is helping Cairo engineer a better way to move its traffic.”
