Imtech launches ImFlow system and wins contract in Dublin

Imtech has announced that its ImFlow adaptive traffic control system has been successfully launched onto the international market and the company has won a new order in Dublin, Ireland. The product was first shown at the Intertraffic Amsterdam show, where it won the Innovation Award. ImFlow is a flexible traffic control system that can be used at intersections, corridors and large city networks, and features a real-time adaptive algorithm, which automatically translates policy into optimal traffic flow. It is able to support multi-criteria optimization at network, route and intersection levels, with policy objectives defined for each level. This introduces balance in prioritizing the various streams, such as slow-moving traffic, public transport, car traffic, heavy goods traffic and emergency services.

Dublin City Council has awarded the company a five-year maintenance contract to maintain and manage the city’s traffic control equipment. The contract, which has the possibility of a three-year extension, involves Imtech maintaining traffic lights at approximately 800 locations, as well as the city’s adaptive traffic control system. Using PDAs (Personal Digital Assistants), the company’s service engineers will transmit online communication of service updates to the fault management system, which guarantees high-quality and efficient traffic system maintenance. The contract also covers the optic fiber communications network, including transmission equipment, and approximately 1,800 illuminated traffic bollards that are used for public lighting. The company will also be replacing or improving existing induction detection loops.

Imtech’s CEO, Rene van der Bruggen, said, “Effective and sustainable transport is of vital importance to the economy and the environment in a city or region. ImFlow makes it possible to translate traffic policy objectives into real-time, state-of-the-art traffic control. Traffic congestion and wasted vehicle hours are reduced. Public transport performance is improved, emissions are reduced significantly and traffic flow and the accessibility of cities in a region improve considerably. With ImFlow a huge step is being taken in the international traffic market.”
