Econolite EOS Traffic Signal Software integrated into PTV Vissim

As part of Umovity, PTV Group and Econolite announce a powerful new integration: Econolite’s next generation Advanced Traffic Controller (ATC) software, EOS, is now embedded in the leading traffic simulation software PTV Vissim.

With the integration of one of the industry’s most potent ring-barrier controllers, users can now evaluate and optimize intersection performance with increased accuracy and advanced functionality, enabling them to make data-based decisions for a smoother and safer traffic flow.

PTV Vissim microsimulation software generates a digital replica of a transport network in all its details and with all road users. To ensure a highly realistic representation of the traffic situation at intersections, Vissim incorporates diverse stage-based and ring-barrier controller software for traffic signal control. This enables planners to analyse traffic signal operations with unmatched precision and test different scenarios to acquire valuable information about the effects of planned measures on the overall traffic flow and verify timing improvements. For example, it could help planners determine the optimal compromise between increased green-time for transit vehicles to speed up public transport and the flow of regular vehicular traffic.

PTV Vissim now seamlessly integrates EOS, one of the most powerful ATC software solutions in the U.S. EOS bundles a smart and dynamic coordinator that can adjust signal timing “on-the-fly”, powerful in-built safety features that are easy to use, best-in-class support for Signal Control Priority (SCP), and advanced data streaming capabilities.

EOS also provides the operational benefits of adaptive split optimization without the need for a separate central system. These features can now be precisely mapped and verified in PTV Vissim, allowing users to evaluate and optimize the performance of the transportation infrastructure virtually before applying changes in the field.

“Integrating Econolite’s EOS, one of the most advanced traffic controller software solutions available, with PTV Vissim is another significant milestone for Umovity,” said Christian U. Haas, CEO of Umovity. “This controller provides traffic engineers the ability to create very advanced signal operations logic to ensure the highest traffic operations performance even in complex settings. And through test and evaluation in Vissim, you can easily gain transparency and quantify the impact of different possible strategies for all road users to find the optimum solution. This is a benefit for all PTV Vissim and all EOS users and everybody who drives, rides or walks in locations where the signal programs are rolled out.”
