Developed using the latest cloud-based technology, Stratos delivers scalable real-time traffic management, information and control, ranging from basic monitoring to strategic control of complex urban traffic environments. Stratos is a hosted solution, meaning there is no need for dedicated servers or client machines, which in turn means no capital cost, depreciation of assets or ongoing hardware maintenance costs.
The system delivers a range of different application modules and will continue to extend to provide a complete solution for all traffic management, control and monitoring requirements. Stratos offers the complete solution for Strategic traffic management.
Stratos provides effective network management using visual "drag and drop" methodology. Strategies can be created quickly and effectively to manage the most complex conditions with minimal effort, and it is possible to completely automate routine network management with confidence
With integration to external systems using industry standard Urban Traffic Management and Control (UTMC) interfacing, Stratos seamlessly manages complete network information, sharing with other stakeholders and ensures trouble-free journeys for network users.
The intelligent parking module of Stratos brings on-street parking and traffic management together. By monitoring individual Siemens parking bay sensors and grouping them into sections and zones (akin to a car park), it provides cities with the capability to direct citizens to on-street parking, helping to reduce circulating traffic and provides valuable statistics to help city planning.
Data outputs to 3rd party systems using the latest Datex II standards provides an open data capability.
Real-time journey information is an essential element of any traffic management system and invaluable to the operator in a traffic control centre to ensure optimal network operation. ANPR cameras, bluetooth detectors, SCOOT loops and links to third-party systems all contribute to the rich source of information which can be integrated and used for traffic management.
The latest JTM module enables users to create and profile routes, update signs with dynamic JT legends and publish JT information using Emerge. Siemens are currently trialling exciting new data sources that will further enhance the data available to traffic managers.
Designed using the latest web technologies with versions tailored for both desktop and mobile devices, Stratos Emerge allows local authorities to quickly and easily configure and automatically publish traffic network information to the public.
Stratos Emerge helps to keep the public informed with up to date information on car parks, message signs, collisions, incidents, roadworks and events. Additional information about the local area, including train stations, ports, airports and tourist information points of interests, can be added to the map with photographs and links to external websites.
No more switching between systems, the Traffic signals module brings an all-new, easy to use, unified user experience allowing you to use your UTC, RMS and Stratos monitored junctions from anywhere.
Enabling a smooth migration from traditional dial-up RMS to secured IP Stratos monitoring the new Stratos Outstation with plug and play connectivity includes support for remote firmware upgrades.
Control on-street access to your Stratos outstations with user certificates, secured local login and detailed auditing capabilities.
Real-time information displayed to drivers through variable message signs allows road users to avoid incidents and delays, as well as easily find vacant parking spaces.
Signs can be set automatically based on pre-determined strategies and the intuitive user interface enables individual or multiple signs to be set quickly, minimising delay in publishing information.
With data inputs from streetworks registers and Highways England, users are able to monitor and manage accidents, incidents, roadworks and planned events. Stratos outputs information using Twitter, e-mail, SMS, Datex II and directly to the Emerge public website to alert interested parties of disruptions.
Associate operator actions taken in response to an event, to avoid double-typing. Records of phone calls and emails, along with general notes can also be added, providing a complete audit history of action taken. Advanced search facilities will enable users to find patterns of disruptions, review previous interventions and rate their effectiveness.
The car park management module of Stratos continually analyses the number of free spaces in each car park, automatically determining the most appropriate messages to be displayed on variable message signs.
This information is automatically integrated within the wider system for traffic managers and is available for use by third party systems as well as for analysis of car park performance and related congestion.
With data from UTMC sources and third party systems including Envirowatch and Findlay Irvine, metrological conditions including wind speed/direction and temperature are brought together in the Stratos environment module along with air quality measurements including PM10, NO2.
New easy-to-read graphing tools help traffic managers spot trends quickly and make full use of available environmental data. Stratos strategies can now react to changing environmental conditions. Automatically warn drivers of freezing conditions and high winds by setting message signs or adjust signal timings to strategically gate traffic when pollution levels rise.
