Traffic Tech Group to show GTT solutions
Innovative traffic control systems, which give ambulances priority, already in place across Doha intersections already in place across Doha intersections
GTT’s dealer Traffic Tech Group is exhibiting at the 4th Annual ITS & Road Safety Forum Qatar 2015 on September 8 and 9 in Doha and will be highlighting GTT’s Opticom™ Emergency Vehicle Pre-emption (EVP) system, which is deployed at intersections across Doha.
There are currently 80 intersections in Doha equipped with the Opticom system and there are plans to expand this to eventually cover additional intersections. The Doha EVP project won the award for “Most Innovative ITS Implementation” in the 2014 edition of the ITS & Road Safety Forum Qatar event.
The ITS & Road Safety Forum will be held at the St. Regis Hotel in Doha and includes more than 25 conference sessions and industry speakers, as well as panel debates, regional and international case studies and a focused exhibition and demo area. The event theme is “Making life better through improved road safety and mobility for people on the move” and it’s endorsed by the Qatar Public Works Authority (Ashghal).
GTT CEO Doug Roberts said,
“Our EVP systems allow ambulances and other emergency vehicles to navigate congested intersections more effectively. As a result, agencies can improve response times by up to 25 percent, while reducing intersection crash rates by up to 70 percent. We’re proud to have worked with Traffic Tech Group to help improve safety and save lives in Doha.”
