TRL announces new UTC launch event

TRL has announced its software division will launch its new Urban Traffic Control software at a virtual event on Tuesday 30 June.

It says its UTC system will utilise SCOOT® 7, enabling the ability to respond automatically to traffic fluctuations, removing the need for signal plans which are expensive to prepare and unable to manage increasingly complex traffic patterns.

“Introducing critical capabilities including bus priority and cycle and pedestrian optimisation as part of SCOOT® 7, the UTC will also provide users with the ability to manually trigger gating of traffic signals, which is essential as part of required mitigation strategies,” the company says in a statement.

Marketing Executive Lucinda Haffenden explained, “We threw out all the previous standards, because we wanted to create something centralised around the user experience. So we’re calling in next generation UTC system. We’ve used a lot of the updates that happened as a result of the London Olympics – pedestrian, and cycle enhancements – and it is all centred around making sure the user gets the most from it. We’ve made sure that we’ve tracked the steps most commonly used by traffic engineers to produce something they want to use.”

The event takes place on Tuesday at 12.30 – register at:
