SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--International Municipal Signal Association Forum & Expo –
Trafficware releases Version 2.7 of ATMS.now Central Transportation Management Systems with more than twenty updates and new features. These new features and reports are dominated by input from the hundreds of ATMS.now customers across the United States and the world.
One of the most sought-after features is the expanded BlueTOAD® integration of real-time vehicle data onto Bing Maps allowing traffic engineers immediate access to the most up-to-date travel times, current speeds, historical speeds, and speed limit data to respond effectively to roadway conditions. The user will also have the ability to define which devices are displayed on the Bing Map at specified zoom levels for yet another layer of visibility into their transportation network.
Since communities are quickly moving to deploy Smart Cities technology, requiring access to data-driven capabilities like connected vehicles, “smart signals” or adaptive signal control, Trafficware is investing in technology that provides rich functionality, central integration, cloud-based capabilities and technical leadership. This includes being able to integrate data from best-in-class applications such as BlueTOAD®.
