In|Sync Applications

In|Sync Applications

Public transportation agencies use In|Sync as a toolbox for fixing a wide range of traffic challenges. Learn about some of the most common In|Sync applications. We’ve classified them under three broad categories: roadway geometries, traffic conditions and integrating non-vehicular traffic.

Roadway Geometries

Intersecting Arterials

Arterial corridors that intersect present a challenge because both roadways experience heavy traffic volume and their need for progression is equal. In|Sync uses its artificial intelligence and adaptive capabilities to solve this problem. The In|Sync system coordinates and guarantees progression along both corridors including at their common intersection.

Freeway Interchanges

Freeway interchanges affect traffic due to the heavy volume of vehicles trying to get on or off via a ramp, especially during rush hour. In|Sync flexibly serves these sequences and frequently re-services the approaches with the highest demand.

Atypical Geometries

Many agencies deploying In|Sync have unusual geometries that cause challenges in managing traffic. In|Sync handles traffic in atypical geometries because of the system’s five adaptive capabilities and the configuration flexibility. Because In|Sync understands intersection relationships on a second-by-second basis, it can make decisions for the entire network of intersections.

In|Sync Handles All Traffic Conditions

Saturation & Special Events

In|Sync is the sustainable technology alternative to multimillion dollar road construction projects. The system adapts to real-time demand and optimizes traffic patterns based on it. With high volumes of vehicles — due to saturation, special events or even lane reductions — In|Sync can handle any fluctuation in traffic flow.

Bi-Directional Progression

Often times, a traffic engineer’s objective is to progress traffic in two directions at the same time. In|Sync makes it easier to achieve bi-directional progression, especially on oddly spaced intersections. The precision of the In|Sync digital state machine initiates green signals for the coordinated movement at the exact desired time because it is not inhibited by common cycle lengths or fixed sequences.

Pedestrian Traffic

In|Sync minimizes the impact of pedestrian push buttons on vehicular service levels. By intercepting the pedestrian call and waiting until it can coordinate the pedestrian movement along with vehicular traffic, In|Sync refrains from interrupting the progression of dozens of vehicles passing through an intersection. In nearly all cases, this creates no noticeable difference for the pedestrian.
