PASADENA, CA (February 8, 2017) – Parsons is pleased to announce that its Intelligent NETworks® Advanced Transportation Management System (ATMS) software is now operational in Mississauga, Canada, allowing the city to actively monitor travel conditions, better control traffic signals, and share information with other regional transportation agencies.
“In Mississauga—as it is in many cities across the world—populations are growing, creating significant traffic congestion on existing roadways,” said Michael Johnson, Parsons Group President. “This makes it imperative to find new ways to help people move more efficiently through urban corridors using the infrastructure already in place. That’s where smart cities technology, such as our Intelligent NETworks®, can make a real contribution to creating a more livable city.”
Operating in Mississauga’s traffic management center, Parsons’ ATMS software provides an intelligent signal control system for real-time management of the 769+ traffic signals within the city—including those under the jurisdiction of the Region of Peel, the Ministry of Transportation Ontario, Halton Region, and the Greater Toronto Airport Authority. Parsons provided the new traffic video wall in the traffic management center and will maintain Mississauga’s ATMS for the next 5 years. In addition, Parsons’ software is able to provide closed circuit television camera control, enable arterial travel time advisory notifications and other traveler information, provide incident detection and management capability, and integrate automatic fleet vehicle location and asset management functionality.
Parsons focuses on the deployment of integrated ATMS and advanced traveler information systems for arterial roads, highways, tunnels, and bridges. This technology includes adaptive traffic signal control, the entire range of strategies and systems for managing recurrent and non-recurrent congestion (incident management, ramp metering, etc.), as well as integration with supervisory control and data acquisition systems and integrated corridor management applications for multimodal and multiagency transportation systems.Parsons (NYSE: PSN) is a leading disruptive technology provider in the global defense, intelligence, and critical infrastructure markets, with capabilities across cybersecurity, missile defense, space, connected infrastructure, and smart cities.
