New York City rolls out most advanced RFID-powered traffic management system in North America

New York City is quickly becoming a hub for RFID in transportation. The city’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority is in the process of rolling out contactless payment options for its subway and bus routes.

And now the city is deploying the most advanced active traffic management (ATM) system in the nation. Powered by RFID technology and designed by Transcore, the next generation traffic control system that will encompass 12,400 traffic signals located throughout the five boroughs, creating the largest traffic signal control system in North America.

Half of the City’s signalized intersections have been converted and integrated to the TransSuite management system. The remainder of the work is scheduled to be completed by 2013.

TransCore’s work includes its integrated TransSuite® traffic management software and the integration of its Encompass® radio frequency identification (RFID) readers, microwave sensors, KLD’s adaptive control module, and other related equipment using the New York City Wireless Network (NYCWiN).

New York City’s deployment will serve as a model for other metropolitans deploying intelligent transportation systems to mitigate choke points in their transportation network and reduce congestion and vehicle carbon emissions.

The “Midtown in Motion” program will improve the flow of traffic in a 110-square-block area in Manhattan. Many existing traffic management systems use pre-programmed signal patterns for different times of day; however, with the new traffic management system, real-time traffic data is transmitted from the field sensors, RFID readers and cameras, and integrated into the TransSuite traffic management software running at the TMC.

This integrated view of active traffic conditions enables engineers to immediately address factors that contribute to traffic backups caused by congestion, construction, special events, dignitary motorcades or accidents.
