Siemens upgrades cloud-based traffic management module


Siemens has released a new Stratos Journey Time (JT) Monitoring module enabling traffic managers to manage real time journey information more effectively and help ensure optimal network operation.

According to the company’s Product Marketing Manager (Systems), David Pregon: ‘network operators can now create and profile routes, update signs with dynamic JT legends, create new Strategy Manager JT triggers and publish JT information using Stratos Emerge with the latest version of the Stratos Journey Time Monitoring (JTM) module’, he said.

The JTM module of Stratos was one of the first modules to be made available. Initially supporting Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras, the types of devices supported and features available have now been expanded.

In addition to ANPR cameras, Bluetooth detectors, SCOOT loops and links to third party systems can all now be used to contribute to the rich source of information available to Stratos enabling effective traffic management.

Stratos is a new approach to traffic management, information and control using secure hosted “cloud” infrastructure, improving reliability and releasing users from owning and maintaining dedicated servers. With a continually growing set of capabilities, improved software support and regular feature updates, customers only need to pay for what they use and select those applications needed to manage the network. ‘Stratos automatically scales to meet demand as the network grows and is easy and intuitive to operate, ideal for users with multiple roles,’ added Pregon.

Siemens is the market leader in traffic management solutions. It manufactures and maintains the majority of traffic signal and control equipment across the UK. The company has several hundred skilled installation and maintenance engineers operating from a network of regional depots.

Siemens was established in the United Kingdom more than 170 years ago and now employs 14,500 people in the UK. As the world’s largest engineering company, Siemens provides innovative solutions to help tackle the world’s major challenges. Siemens has offices and factories throughout the UK, with its headquarters in Frimley, Surrey.
