In|Sync reduces travel times on Rosecrans in Midway District

No comments

A new automated traffic-signal optimization system on Point Loma’s Rosecrans Street was officially dedicated March 24 by Mayor Kevin Faulconer and Peninsula leaders.

Faulconer said the city’s “made a concentrated push in the last few years to use techology to become a smarter city trying to use that technology to provide better service to customers and to our residents. … Now we’re using technology to improve traffic.”

The mayor noted the new signals “communicate with each other, memorize traffic patterns and make timing adjustments so cars keep moving along rather than sitting at a red light for minutes on end.”

The new system “is all about taking real-time data, and turning it into real-time results,” said Faulconer.

New Innovative Technology Optimizes Traffic Signals, Reducing Travel Time Thanks To $600,000 State Grant

Thursday, March 9, 2017 – NEWS RELEASE

San Diego – With the goal of making a smarter and cleaner San Diego for future generations, Mayor Kevin L. Faulconer was joined today by City Councilmember Lorie Zapf and community leaders to tout the successful installation of adaptive traffic signals in the Point Loma and Midway neighborhoods that have significantly improved traffic flow and reduced vehicle stops.

Through a $600,000 state grant, the City of San Diego installed 12 “Adaptive Traffic Systems” along the Rosecrans Street corridor from Hancock Street to Nimitz Boulevard as a quality-of-life improvement for neighborhood residents. These smart traffic signals communicate with each other and adjust signals, memorize traffic patterns, improve traffic flow and reduce vehicle stops.

“We’ve made a concerted effort over the past few years to improve neighborhoods by installing smart infrastructure along some of San Diego’s most congested roadways,” Mayor Faulconer said. “Everybody hates sitting in traffic so we’re turning to new technology to solve this age-old problem. These smart signals adjust traffic lights to keep cars moving rather than sitting at stoplights.”

Mira Mesa Phase I Adaptive Traffic Control System Wins Award

No comments

Location: City of San Diego – Mira Mesa Community

City or County Responsible for Project: City of San Diego

Award Category: Safety or Intelligent Transportation System Projects

Narrative Description Of Your Entry:

Mira Mesa Phase I adaptive traffic control system, activated in Summer 2016, is the City of San Diego’s most complex system deployment. Project goal is to improve traffic flow, reduce travel times, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and enhance safety in one of the most traffic-congested communities in San Diego. To meet these goals, the City of San Diego selected the most advanced adaptive traffic control system currently on the market: InSync. Mira Mesa Phase I adaptive traffic control system deployment was designed to tie into initial InSync deployments on Lusk Boulevard, which involved nine intersections and public/private funding. Successful deployment of the Lusk Boulevard system, which reduced travel times by 24 percent, reduced stops by 61 percent, and reduced fuel consumption by 24 percent, caused the City to expand use of adaptive traffic control systems, including to other intersections in west Mira Mesa.

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AM) – The city is equipping more streets with adaptive signals that detect traffic counts and adjust signals in real time.

Dustin Brinkman with Rhythm Engineering says the technology has mad a positive impact to traffic flow on 26th Street, reduced crashes and decreased fuel consumption.

Sioux Falls Police Chief Matt Burns says when cars stop less often, the likelihood for crashes also decreases.  He says “more smoothly flowing traffic makes for safer commutes and a healthier community.”

Traffic snarls go bye bye bye with InSync system

No comments

Tired of gridlock on Rosecrans Street and throughout the Peninsula?

Relief is on the way soon in the form of an InSync traffic optimization system now being installed on signals along Rosecrans, one of San Diego’s busiest and most congested thoroughfares. A similar traffic- optimization system was installed six months ago on Torrey Pines Road on La Jolla Parkway in “the Throat” in between Interstate 5 and La Jolla Village.

“This is the same signal-optimization technique,” said Duncan Hughes, a city senior traffic engineer, who noted, “Rosecrans in Midway is among the heaviest-volume roads (in the city), not just Rosecrans, but all the crossing arterials.”

Lenexa company working behind the scenes to make sure KC Streetcar traffic flows smoothly

No comments

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – When the Kansas City Streetcar launches in early May, a state-of-the-art computerized traffic system will also kick in to make sure everything flows smoothly.

Reggie Chandra, founder and CEO of Rhythm in Lenexa, Kansas, said the computer system is called InSync.

“The System of 21 cameras along the route feed the computer information about cars, how long they have been waiting at the intersection, the streetcar location and whether or not the pedestrian button has been activated. The computer will then analyze that information and determine the best option to keep traffic moving through the intersection,” said Chandra.

Rhythm Engineering Gets the Green Light for the Kansas City Streetcar Traffic Signal Project

Kansas City, MO: Rhythm Engineering, LLC is proud to announce that it has won the contract for the upgrade of the traffic signal control system to be installed along the Kansas City Streetcar corridor in mid-2015. The Kansas City Streetcar project, known as KC Streetcar, is a two-mile line that runs through downtown Kansas City, largely on Main Street, and connects River Market on the north to Crown Center and Union Station on the south.

Since the new streetcar system will run on existing street lanes in the middle of the Central Business District, Crossroads Art District and the Power and Light District, traffic signal synchronization is crucial for alleviating any potential traffic congestion that may arise. Rhythm Engineering offers the perfect solution, using its newly developed adaptive technology, In|Sync®, which integrates signal timing, traffic volumes, and computerized real-time tracking. Their system, once installed, will control 21 signals along this streetcar corridor.

According to Reggie Chandra, PE, CEO of Rhythm Engineering, “We are honored to have this opportunity to make a difference in our own home community. Kansas City has proven that it is very serious in its intention to become a truly “smart” city and we are glad to be part of the initiative. Rhythm Engineering always has been proud to be called a Kansas City company as we make a difference to motorists in 31 states and 128 cities.”

These modifications will be installed by Rhythm’s traffic technicians and optimized by traffic engineers to ensure that the streetcar can move safely and efficiently alongside car and bus traffic. Rhythm Engineering joins other subcontractors, including Cisco, Comanche Construction, Reynolds Electric, Trekk Design, and others, under the direction of the project team led by KC Streetcar Constructors, a joint venture partnership of Herzog Contracting Corp. of St. Joseph, Missouri, and Stacy and Witbeck, Inc. of Alameda, California.

Infrastructure Australia recommends In|Sync®

We recently came across a study published by Infrastructure Australia comparing Scats to In|Sync.

“…the report will examine and review the SCATS system against Rhythm Engineering’s In|Sync, an emerging controller in the field.” 

We are proud to say that In|Sync did well: 

“Analysis of the discussed ATCS technologies has identified areas of possible improvement to the existing SCATS infrastructure in Sydney. The In|Sync technology is both relatively cheap to implement and has proven to be an effective traffic controller. It is therefore recommended that, following identification of congested channels using floating car data, In|Sync control configurations and IP cameras be integrated into existing infrastructure to ease congestion. Using this technology, Green Wave ideology can be adopted to optimise traffic flows. Furthermore, utilisation of In|Sync technology allows for future accommodation of priority traffic signals such as those currently employed in Japan.”
