CROSS has won a tender for traffic management in Denmark
CROSS Zlín has won a tender for the delivery of a traffic control system and traffic light controllers for the second largest city of Denmark, Aarhus. This city, with nearly 300,000 inhabitants, is a major seaport, economic and cultural center of Jutland and also the seat of an important Danish university. Like almost every major city in Western Europe, Aarhus is struggling with traffic jams.
Its city hall has therefore decided to radically improve the traffic management system in the city and restore around 100 traffic light controllers in the city Inspired by the EU's push for standardization of interfaces within the urban ITS areas.
The Signing of the contract between CROSS management and the city representatives took place at this year's ITS World Congress in Copenhagen. The subject of the contract is the delivery of the eDaptiva Traffic Management System. The control center will be provided in the cloud on the online platform for smart cities Invipo. Another part of the cooperation will be the successive delivery of traffic light controllers.
"CROSS traffic light controllers meet all the necessary European standards, including the Open Communications Interface for Road Traffic Control Systems (OCIT). Thanks to this, they can communicate using a standardized protocol with a superior traffic control panel, which was also a prerequisite for the tenderer, "said Michal Šteflíček, Head of sales in CROSS Zlín.
The CROSS RS 4S controllers will work here in co-operation with third-party controllers. The project is planned for five years and the first pieces will be delivered to the customer in the coming weeks.
