Road traffic management was previously carried out using a number of incompatible systems: for example, variable speed limit signs were controlled using systems supplied by several different suppliers at different times, each with different properties and usability. As a result, it was necessary to improve the overview of traffic management and develop operations.
In addition, the systems were susceptible to risks as each system could only be operated from a single place, and only part of the employees had expertise in each system.
A map-based overview system as the solution
Solita provided Fintraffic Road with an integrated road traffic user interface, which brings together road traffic data and functions in a single real-time map-based view. Traffic management operators can, according to the task and situation at hand, access different types of data and functions in layers. As a result, they always have access to the best possible overview from the selected perspective, and the opportunity to carry out quick and justified decisions and activities in traffic management.
The flexible architecture allows new systems and data sources to be connected to the user interface whenever they become available.
In addition, the system offers significant help in risk and resource management: any subsystem and area can be controlled from any traffic management location. In this way, any other location can take over if there is an interruption in a single traffic management location or an individual traffic management operator falls ill.
More effective traffic management, safer and smoother traffic
Solita’s system brings many benefits. With the real-time national overview, traffic management operators can make justified and prioritised decisions. The system’s consistent and clear usability makes traffic management quick and flawless. Versatile interfaces provide selected parties with easy access to real-time data. In addition, the system’s high reliability and error tolerance ensure safe and smooth traffic in every situation.
