During the Intelligent Transportation Society of America's Annual Meeting, McCain will be unveiling their latest product in intelligent transportation solutions, Transparity® TDX. The integrated solution is a platform built to support the future of smart-city applications and connected and autonomous vehicle operations. Come and visit team McCain at booth #201 at the ITSA Annual Meeting to see this and other intelligent transportation products in action.
The Ministry of Transportation of Ontario (MTO) chooses McCain's Central Management Software, Transparity® TMS, to power over 500 intersections in the Greater Toronto, Hamilton, Ottawa, and Windsor areas in an effort to better manage traffic in Canada's most populated province. Transparity TMS will support the MTO's legacy controllers as well as upgraded ATC controllers that will be deployed, effectively future proofing the agency for smart city applications and connected and autonomous vehicles.
McCain has been a long standing leader in the development and deployment of ATC Cabinet technology, which is why we couldn't hold back our excitement when ITE, NEMA, and AASHTO released ATC Cabinet Standard V 02. Now a national standard, agencies across the nation can take advantage of advanced features that promote safety, mobility, and are environmentally sound.
In an effort to minimize congestion and help the public locate available parking, the City of San Jose has chosen McCain to modernize 13 of their wayfinding Variable Message Signs. The smart city solution will direct travelers to more than 6,200 spaces in eight garages across the downtown area. Combined with SKIDATA parking access revenue systems (PARCS), customers can even check availability and reserve parking directly from their smart phone.
There is a known issue in GPS-enabled devices, such as those installed in traffic signal cabinets, that may cause GPS receivers to malfunction before, on, or after April 6, 2019 (aka GPS Week Rollover). The rollover can cause the transmitted date to reset up to 19.7 years, impacting coordinated corridors and holiday timing schedules. Learn more about the GPS Week Rollover and what steps your agency can take to minimize the effect and keep your city running smoothly.
