During the Intelligent Transportation Society of New York’s annual meeting, the New York City Department of Transportation and team participants TransCore, KLD, Peek Traffic and Econolite/CBH Inc. and the Federal Highway Administration were awarded top honors for the Most Outstanding ITS Project of the year for Midtown in Motion, an advanced adaptive traffic management system. New York City’s deployment of the intelligent Midtown in Motion system is designed to mitigate chokepoints and reduce congestion and vehicle carbon emissions.

TransCore’s role was to design New York City’s next-generation traffic control system that would encompass 12,400 traffic signals located throughout the five boroughs. TransCore’s work included implementation of its TransSuite traffic management software and the integration of TransCore’s Encompass radio frequency identification readers to read local toll tags, KLD’s adaptive control module, Peek Traffic controllers, microwave sensors furnished by Econolite/CBH and other related equipment using the New York City Wireless Network.
