Econolite Introduces EOS™ Traffic Control Software

The next-generation, intuitive controller software prepares
agencies for Connected Vehicle and Smart City traffic control systems

ANAHEIM, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#CAV–Econolite today introduced EOS™ traffic controller software. EOS is a
next-generation, easy-to-use, web-based user interface traffic control
software that is built on a completely new and more robust dynamic core
framework. EOS is designed to expand traffic control capabilities,
preparing agencies for the upcoming demands of Connected and Autonomous
Vehicle (CAV) and Smart City traffic control systems. EOS is developed
for Econolite Cobalt® ATC, Safetran 2070C, and other properly
configured ATC controllers.

“EOS represents new levels of operational efficiency and capability for
traffic controller software,” said Econolite Vice President of
Engineering, Eric Raamot. “EOS provides improved real-time
decision-making by enabling dynamic ‘on-the-fly’ changes to phase
timing, sequencing, and coordinated split control, serving the immediate
needs of connected and autonomous vehicle applications.”

EOS features a brand-new coordinator design, enabling immediate
coordination decisions rather than awaiting a cycle endpoint. This
coordinator includes adaptive split balancing using the Purdue GOR/ROR5
metric for phase failure. EOS’ dynamic Core and Coordinator enable a new
Signal Control and Prioritization capability. EOS supports an internal
priority request server (PRS), allowing receipt and prioritization of
multiple concurrent and even contradictory priority requests while
mitigating the impact on traffic.

EOS is designed with traffic control phase timing and sequencing modules
that support real-time changes to signal phase sequencing and timing, as
well as the latest J2735 dedicated short range communications (DSRC)
messages like SPaT/MAP, supporting CAV applications. EOS helps provide
the necessary software bridge that enables vehicle-to-infrastructure
(V2I) communications – a critical component of the CAV equation.

Econolite is presently involved in the industry’s most prominent CAV
initiatives, including: University of Michigan – UMTRI, MTC Leadership
Circle, and Mcity CAV test facility; MMITSS with the University of
Arizona and PATH; V2I Reference Implementation project; and numerous CV
projects. In addition to its strategic partnership with Savari,
Econolite is also involved in cooperative efforts with leading CV
technology providers such as Battelle, Texas A&M Transportation
Institute (TTI), and others.
