Q-Free has been awarded a contract from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) for an ATMS signal integration project.

The contract comprises development of a traffic signal module that will enable MAXVIEW, the centralized intersection control SW from Q-Free’s subsidiary Intelight, to be integrated with Open TMS, the Advanced Traffic Management System from Q-Free Open Roads currently used by PennDOT. The contract is valued at 20 MNOK and will be released in phased deployments starting fall 2018.

Working with PennDOT since 2012, Q-Free implemented a single statewide platform to promote coordinated traffic management and operations using OpenTMS. With this new traffic signal module integration, PennDOT can add up to 10 000 intersections to the ATMS system, which will allow traffic operators to manage entire traffic networks in an integrated real-time environment.

-We are excited at the prospect of adding traffic signals integration to the already robust ATMS system operating at PennDOT. We very much value PennDOT as a partner and appreciate their continued confidence in Q-Free as their go-to provider for everything related to ATMS, commented Christopher Melton, Managing Director for Q-Free Open Roads.

-This is pioneering work and a great example of how Q-Free’s leading solutions within different fields of traffic management can be combined and integrated in new ways to create additional value for customers, said Håkon Volldal, President & CEO of Q-Free ASA.
