Transparity® TMS to Power Ontario's Provincial Signalized Intersections - The flexibility of Transparity TMS plays perfectly into Ontario’s unique traffic management needs. With approximately 13 million residents, more than a third of Canada’s total population, Ontario covers a land mass 1.5 times the size of Texas. While much of the population is centered around major cities in the GTAH (Greater Toronto Area and Hamilton), Ottawa, and Windsor, the province also includes sparsely populated regions, all of which will be controlled by Transparity TMS.
San Jose Selects McCain to Modernize Downtown Wayfinding System - San Jose currently has a legacy parking system which pushes availability to static signs with LED inserts that display basic alpha-numeric data. Upgrading these signs to McCain’s Variable Message Signs (VMS) opens the door to many new means of communicating with the public. The full-color VMS can display any combination of text, graphics, and images. Best of all, as an established leader in transportation, McCain VMS comply with U.S. traffic communications standards (NTCIP), providing options to integrate parking and variable message signs with traffic and other mobility operations.
San Francisco Selects McCain ATC Cabinets to Upgrade Traffic Signal Infrastructure - McCain won a major three-year contract with the City and County of San Francisco to upgrade traffic control cabinets throughout the city with new Advanced Transportation Controller cabinets (ATC cabinets). San Francisco runs the nation’s 13th largest transportation department, making it the largest user of NEMA cabinets to adopt the ATC cabinet technology to date.
LADOT Opens MyFigueroa Streets Project Using McCain ATC Cabinets. MyFig was designed to create a multimodal, “complete” street that is accessible and safe for all users. The new McCain ATC cabinets provided the project with unprecedented flexibility to add bicycle lights, pedestrian signals and detection as appropriate, helping the city move toward its Mobility Plan 2035 goal of creating a transportation system that balances benefits for all users.
McCain's Smart City Solutions Transform Maui's Transportation Network - The installation at 82 intersections across the island will include McCain’s new FLeX® Controllers running the company’s Omni eX® Intersection Control Software. These intersections will be run remotely by McCain’s Transparity® Traffic Management System (TMS), a cloud-capable software that will communicate using cellular technology to provide traffic managers with critical traffic data in real time.
McCain Contract with LADOT - Largest ATC Cabinet Deployment in History - Cabinets meeting ATC standards increase safety and efficiency allowing for much greater flexibility and modularity than older cabinet types. Over the duration of the agreement, McCain expects to deliver more than 1,500 cabinets, by far the largest ATC cabinet deployment anywhere in the world to date.
McCain Introduced Variable Speed Limit Signs (VSLS) - McCain variable speed limit signs help improve road safety by allowing agencies to adjust the speed limit on roadways in response to current road and traffic conditions, such as heavy traffic or adverse weather conditions. By decreasing the risk associated with driving at speeds higher than appropriate in these types of conditions, VSLS can improve traffic flow and safety, and reduce crash potential by eight to thirty percent.
McCain Variable Message Sign (VMS) chosen for PennDOT I-76 Smart Corridor - McCain's Variable Speed Limit Signs (VSLS) have been chosen for the new Interstate 76 (Schuylkill Expressway) smart corridor initiatives. The comprehensive, multi-modal transportation management plan aims to decrease congestion, reduce crashes, and provide real-time information to drivers. McCain distributor, M.H. Corbin, was awarded the contract for 76 VSLS, powered by SWARCO, that will be installed over the next year to enhance travel along nearly 50 miles of the I-76 between King of Prussia and Philadelphia.
McCain’s advanced transportation solutions are providing real-time traffic data, including Signal Phase and Timing (SPaT), and traffic signal preemption, to connect vehicles via a Roadside Unit (RSU) equipped with the Qualcomm® 9150 C-V2X solution from Qualcomm Technologies’ during CES, located in the North Hall, booth #5616, and at the main Qualcomm booth, Central Hall #10948.
The San Diego autonomous vehicle proving grounds were designated as one of ten proving grounds in the U.S. by the U.S. Department of Transportation. One objective of the trials is to demonstrate the potential of C-V2X technologies, and their ability to improve automotive safety, support a path towards automated driving, and to drive improved traffic efficiency.
