The shortlist of nominees has been announced for the Intertraffic Awards 2022, featuring three companies extremely active in the UK – TRL, SWARCO and Jenoptik.
The awards are recognising, not two, but four year’s worth of excellence, following the postponement of the previous edition of the biennial competition.
The winners will be revealed during the opening ceremony of Intertraffic Amsterdam. The 25th edition of the leading global event for the traffic technology and mobility sector will be staged from 29 March – 1 April 2022 at RAI Amsterdam.
After 80 companies entered, there are 15 nominees in total, among three new award categories.
SWARCO is nominated in the Intertraffic Green Globe Award category for SWARCO X-Line by (stand no. 02.222)
SWARCO X-Line is an intelligent platform for energy-efficient intersections. It controls traffic light systems based on the concept of distributed, decentralised intelligence. With SWARCO X-Line the energy consumption of an entire intersection is now comparable to the consumption of a single lamp in the past. Just 1 watt is now required per signal. System wide energy optimisation is achieved by reducing the number required components with a safe plug-in solution, that is much easier to install and configure than conventional approaches, with only less underground construction work required and only 10% of copper required compared to traditional setups.
Also in that category, Traffipole by Jenoptik – stand no. 01.416
TraffiPole is a new sustainable design housing for road safety technology, made of recyclable aluminium. It’s highly functional, double-wall design enables efficient air circulation, eliminating the need for air conditioning even in very hot climates. This significantly reduces power consumption and thus CO2 emissions. Exterior solar panels can contribute to further energy savings.
TRL is nominated inn the User Experience Award with UTC powered by SCOOT 7 (stand no. 05.441).
Throwing out previous UTC thinking this new and innovative SaaS platform enables users to unlock data and orchestrate their network.
