Why Aren’t We Seeing More Progress?

Wrong Tools

Traditional traffic signal control tools don’t adapt to constantly changing traffic. They don’t accurately reflect current traffic flow and use historical data to propose traffic control changes — resulting in motorists’ frustration.

Outdated Solutions

Existing models use flawed assumptions and are inaccurate, leading to suboptimal traffic signal timing. Very few solutions are validated to work under ever-changing traffic flow.

Flawed Timing Plan Models

Most systems use analog architectures, which rely on cycle-based systems. Cycles allow only the use of preset times, leading to transition hell when you need multiple changes in a short period of time.

Lack of Time & Resources

Traffic professionals don’t have the time or resources to continually synchronize traffic signals. They have to constantly deal with changing traffic patterns, special events and maintenance with a limited budget and limited team.

There is a Better Way

We have seen a clear improvement in traffic flow, and we anticipate a significant reduction in crashes. Thanks for a job well done.

Rhythm’s Adaptive Signal Project Makes Big Impact on Travel Times in Albuquerque

Rhythm’s market leading In|Sync adaptive system has succeeded in contributing to Albuquerque’s ‘Alameda Boulevard Adaptive Signal Project’.    Bernalillo County spokeswoman, Catherine Lopez, commented that commuters arrival to their destination has been reduced by 5 to 6 minutes on average, in each direction (30% reduction in the morning and 50% reduction in the evening travel time). This is the “phase two” deployment of In|Sync on their most intensive traffic corridor, which sees 44,000 vehicles pass through

In|Sync reduces travel times on Rosecrans in Midway District

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
