GTT appoints ATC as dealer in Australia, New Zealand and China; will co-exhibit at ITS World Congress Melbourne
Global Traffic Technologies partners with Aldridge Traffic Controllers to provide leading traffic signal priority solutions for more efficient and safer movement of emergency and public transport vehicles
St. Paul, Minnesota, September 26, 2016 – Global Traffic Technologies, LLC (GTT) has appointed Aldridge Traffic Controllers (ATC) as its dealer for Australia, New Zealand and China. GTT will join ATC at its booth at the ITS World Congress to be held in Melbourne in October, where the two companies will host a live demonstration of GTT’s Opticom™ TSP system, which provides public transport vehicles with priority at traffic signal intersections.
ATC is recognized as a leader in the provision of traffic management and signalling products and systems. It is an authorized distributor of the SCATS Urban Traffic Management Control system, which can be integrated with GTT’s Opticom traffic signal priority solutions. GTT’s full Opticom and Canoga™ product lines will be available through ATC .
GTT is a world leader in priority control and traffic sensing systems, with thousands of implementations of its acclaimed Opticom™ TSP and EVP solutions. Opticom TSP provides buses and other public transport vehicles with the ability to request green lights at intersections, allowing for better schedule adherence and headway management, while Opticom EVP allows ambulances and other emergency vehicles to navigate congested intersections more effectively, resulting in improved response times and a reduction in accidents. The Canoga Traffic Sensing Solution captures precise, real-time traffic data so traffic engineers can make faster, more accurate decisions to keep traffic moving smoothly on roadways.
GTT President Doug Roberts says the new dealer arrangement opens up exciting opportunities for Opticom and Canoga products in the region. “We’re delighted to partner with ATC, and to exhibit with them at the ITS World Congress in Melbourne,” he says. “We’re looking forward to working with them on implementing systems which improve traffic flow and reduce accidents, streamline public transport schedules and get emergency vehicles to incidents quickly and safely.”
ATC managing director Andrew Bull says, “GTT’s products give us more powerful tools in our portfolio of ITS solutions. We’re particularly interested in the way Opticom is easily integrated with the SCATS traffic management system, and we anticipate a lot of interest in GTT’s Transit Signal Priority and Emergency Vehicle Preemption systems amongst our customers.”
The 23rd World Congress on Intelligent Transport Systems takes place in Melbourne, Australia, from October 10-14, at the Melbourne Exhibition and Conference Centre. During the show, ATC and GTT will host a live demo of an Opticom TSP solution, giving public transport vehicles priority green signals at an intersection near the venue.
In addition, GTT’s Mike Haldane will deliver two presentations during the World Congress’s program: one on the successful integration of an Opticom EVP solution with a SCATS system in Doha, Qatar, and the other on a rural traffic collision warning system based on GTT’s Canoga system. Both presentations take place on Thursday October 13.
