Telvent to continue upgrades in Pinellas County

Telvent has announced that it will provide continuous engineering and IT services to upgrade and enhance the Advanced Traffic Management System (ATMS) and Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) in Pinellas County, Florida. The company has worked with the county since 2003 to deploy both systems, which have already resulted in significant benefits to drivers. Since becoming operational in 2006, the ATMS system has reduced the number of stops and delays and improved overall travel times, as well as marked improvements in air quality. The company will upgrade and enhance the ATMS and ITS systems with its latest technology over the next three years, in order to continue the improvements to mobility, and further reduce pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.

Pinellas County will also work with Telvent to deploy a state-of-the-art traveler information system that will provide travelers with: access to streaming video of traffic conditions; variable message signs (VMS) on roadways; and a cell phone application with information on specific routes. Announcing the extension of the contract, Telvent’s chairman and CEO, Ignacio Gonzalez, said, “We are pleased to continue our nearly decade-long relationship with Pinellas County. The enhancements to the transportation network will significantly contribute to the county delivering on its mission of reducing traffic congestion, improving roadway safety and increasing driver information and awareness. The solutions will also further reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve air quality in the region.”
