PRIOCOM

PRIOCOM is a traffic light priority system that helps to promote the passage of buses and trams at traffic lights to improve the regularity of lines and the average speed of vehicles.

Category: .

PRIOCOM is a complete system designed to give public transport vehicles priority at traffic lights.

It is an opened product, based on normalized radio transmission of the bus arrival time prediction to the next traffic lights. The transmitted arrival times are calculated from models that are corrected at each moment according to the events encountered by vehicles in the approach phase. Traffic lights controllers can then deform their cycle and make the passage of vehicles coincide with a phase of green.

Fonctionnement du système PRIOCOM de priorité aux feux

Usage

PRIOCOM is a tool that allows you to devote the time saved by crossing intersections to different needs:

  • Improve the regularity of public transport vehicles
  • Increase the average commercial speed of the vehicles
  • Take into account the hazards met by the vehicles during the approach phase
  • Maintain the intervals between the transport vehicles
  • Favor directions and destinations according schedules and types of days
  • Prioritize different lines and improve the efficiency of the system for the strongest lines.
  • Measure the performances obtained and report on the efficiency of the system
  • Propose automatically more pertinent approach models.
