The transcribed data can then be combined with all other traffic sensors including Bluetooth, Loops, Pucks, Radar and more. All this data is fed into the MetroTech Traffic Vision Center (MTN-TVC). Flow of vehicles, pedestrians and bicycles, travel times, travel delays, queue length and number of turning movements are measured. The data can be compared to other routes, other day parts and other areas to find ways to improve travel.
In addition to publishing the current measure of traffic, MetroTech uses predictive analytics to plan for emerging congestion. In doing so, cars and trucks can avoid future bottlenecks, and municipalities can better plan future construction.
The cities of the future will be powered by advanced communication networks, smart sensors and intelligent management systems.

MetroTech is uniquely positioned to work with the existing government infrastructure to make the greatest use of transportation department resources. MetroTech can connect and create a cross-jurisdictional clearinghouse for traffic data and allow visibility to all those that need the traffic data. They can then collect the raw transportation data and broadcast the “health” of the intersection.
The information gathered can then help every municipality, company, organization and consumer to avoid roadway issues.
