A critical component to the effectiveness of any Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) ATMS Module is the active management of field assets, preventative maintenance, performance measures, etc. to properly sustain signal operations. The International Municipal Signal Association (IMSA) recommends that a technician should be responsible for managing up to 40 signals. However, due to budget constraints, the average number of signals a technician is currently responsible for falls somewhere between 90 to 110 signals.
An automated centralized system that can manage the maintenance and field assets can help traffic management departments, agencies and MPOs save time and money, while enhancing productivity.
