Safe, efficient results for emergency responders

Using coded infrared (IR) transmitters mounted on emergency vehicles, the Opticom IR platform communicates securely with the intersection’s traffic controller to request a temporary right of way.

GTT’s legacy IR platform provides line-of-sight Emergency Vehicle Preemption (EVP) in order to decrease response times and improve safety for emergency responders and the community.
Built on more than 45 years of Opticom signal priority performance and reliability, the Opticom IR platform is installed in thousands of vehicles and intersections worldwide.

The Opticom IR platform brings together a combination of proven hardware, advanced software and comprehensive services to enable faster and safer on-scene arrivals for departments of any size.

Reduce intersection crash rates by up to 70 percent
Improve response times by up to 25 percent
Eliminate priority conflicts; grant right-of-way on a “first come, first served” basis
Restrict access to authorized users only through system coding
Receive data reports logging vehicles and preemption activity
