Traffex 2015: Siemens to unveil new operations centre

 

World-leading engineering firm Siemens has announced it will unveil an array of new products and services at the combined Traffex and Parkex event in Birmingham – the UK’s most important traffic industry exhibition.

A new service operations centre, a ‘speaking’ intersection controller, new electric car charging equipment and a new cycle detection system will all be showcased by the event partner.

Managing director, Gordon Wakeford, said: ‘We will be exhibiting products from across our extensive range, from innovative traffic controllers, signals and detection solutions, to the very latest traffic management, electric vehicle charging and traffic enforcement systems.

‘Since Traffex 2013, the industry has witnessed unprecedented change and we are excited to be able to launch a number of market changing innovations at Traffex 2015.’

Chief among the new innovations is the firm’s new Service Operations Centre, which brings together Siemens’ existing field service contact centre, systems support and Poole-based consultancy services team into one location.

Based in Poole, Dorset, the centre provides secure round the clock network management services giving clients the capability to remotely manage local authority road networks including key routes and junctions, strategic traffic control and network optimisation.

Head of consultancy services, Martin Andrews, said: ‘By combining our offering, we can provide an enhanced level of day-to-day operational support to customers that is completely flexible depending on their requirements.’

Enabled by Stratos - a cloud-based strategic traffic management Solution – the centre allows additional service delivery stakeholders to securely access control room information from wherever they are.

Building on the success of the ST950 intersection controller that was launched at Traffex 2013, Siemens has developed the system with a host of new controller features this year including unique ‘speaking controller capabilities’.

Head of product management, Keith Manston said: ‘The most striking new feature is the audible interface, which enables the ST950 to talk to users. Uniquely the ST950 can now provide audible feedback, in the form of spoken phrases, via a Plug-in Bluetooth dongle to maintenance engineers on site. Utilising a mobile phone or other device capable of establishing a Bluetooth link with the controller, engineers may for example select a detector input to monitor move to the location of that detector and listen to its actual status in real time.’

The new WiMag Cycle Detection system will also be launched at the show. The product uses in-ground, low-power, wireless detectors and microwave radar technology to identify and count bicycles of all types, including those constructed from carbon fibre.

Traffex and Parkex returns to Hall 5 at the NEC Birmingham on the 21 - 23 April, 2015.
