EPCOR Technologies has the capability to provide ITS solutions to address your municipality's modern traffic challenges. We perform systems engineering for intelligent transportation systems and can integrate leading edge technologies into your municipality's new or existing infrastructure systems. When implemented, intelligent transportation system technologies have the potential to save time and money, but more importantly, lives. We can provide:

  • Engineering analysis
  • Design and specification review
  • Software and hardware procurement
  • Project management and construction services
  • Integration support for the necessary software and hardware

We have established an integrated group of management, engineers and field staff committed to optimizing traffic operations and capital upgrades.

Our strength is the ability to source the proper ITS solution for your needs and have a qualified team implement. Contact EPCOR Technologies to learn more about intelligent transportation system solutions that help save lives, time, and money while reducing environmental impact.

 

What is an intelligent transportation system and how does it work?

Intelligent transportation systems integrate advanced communication and computer technologies into the transportation infrastructure. This forms an intelligent link between travelers, vehicles and infrastructure.

The purpose of creating smart cities and communities connected through technology is to improve the lives of those that live there. Smart cities use intelligent traffic signal systems to improve traffic flow, reduce traffic congestion and provide effective solutions for public transportation. This is achieved through the implementation and management of a variety of transportation monitoring and management solutions.

 

Traffic signals and intelligent transportation system services

We take pride in having experienced staff and tested processes. EPCOR Technologies will provide safe and quality delivery of the traffic signal and ITS services we offer.

  Intelligent traffic monitoring systems

Traffic patterns and data collected through city surveillance and traffic monitoring systems will help to optimize traffic flow. The purpose is to improve traffic conditions and reduce waiting and travel times for pedestrians and drivers. Examples of connected surveillance and monitoring system services include:

  • Road weather information systems
  • Automatic vehicle identification & location systems
  • Connected CCTV camera networks
  • Adaptive traffic management systems 
  • Dynamic messaging systems to communicate changing conditions and direct traffic

  Traffic signal systems

We understand the importance of your traffic light control system in keeping your city moving. We offer turnkey traffic signal systems built for smart cities problems and solutions including:

  • Full intersection signalization
  • Pedestrian and rail crossing signalization
  • Lane control systems
  • Pre-emption and signal priority
  • Vehicle detection and classification systems such as video, microwave, piezo, inductive loops
  • Red-light camera systems

​Featured ITS and traffic signal projects

As a leading integrated utility engineering, construction and maintenance firm we have demonstrated our expertise on a wide range of projects. View our highlighted projects below or case studies of in-progress and completed projects EPCOR Technologies has been involved in.

 

Road Weather Information System - Schneider Electric for Alberta Transportation

Travelers value 511 Alberta for information on highway conditions, roadwork, major incidents, weather alerts, and wait times at border crossings. The backbone of this system is the network of Road Weather Information System (RWIS) stations, which allows information to be collected through sensors and cameras at stations along Alberta’s highway network. EPCOR Technologies was responsible for the site design and installation of the RWIS towers, underground civil works, road & tower sensors, field testing, configuration and commissioning of 21 sites across Alberta. Read the full RWIS case study.

 

Traffic Pre-Emption System - City of Spruce Grove, AB

As a growing municipality with increased traffic volumes and a complex roadway system, Spruce Grove required a solution to allow emergency vehicles to flow unimpeded through the City’s major intersections - with the intent to shorten emergency response times. EPCOR Technologies was contracted to install control units and radio/ GPS antennas at 22 intersections throughout the City that would communicate with emergency vehicles. Our team also developed customized cabinet wiring solutions and utilized existing conduit for specialized cable installations in order to seamlessly integrate with pre-existing infrastructure. Read the full traffic pre-emption system case study.
