GTT releases most advanced TSP solution to date: modular, expandable Opticom CVP ST. PAUL, MN – October 11, 2016 – Global Traffic Technologies announced today the availability of Opticom CVP, the company’s next-generation transit optimization solution. The Opticom CVP is built with the same powerful and precise algorithms used in Opticom hardwarecentric, GPS-enabled solutions. The new platform provides softwarebased Transit Signal Priority (TSP), schedule adherence, headway management and other advanced capabilities, helping to ensure transit vehicles adhere to their published timetables. With GTT’s most advanced solution to date, agencies have the potential to increase rider satisfaction while dramatically reducing operating costs. The platform also adds cloud-based analytics for more control and insights. GTT’s president Doug Roberts said “the new Opticom CVP is a softwarecentric platform that, combined with new service and delivery options, is designed to offer agencies maximum flexibility with their implementation. “The solution significantly reduces implementation time,” Roberts said. “This allows agencies to increase efficiency and improve rider satisfaction faster than conventional solutions.” The CVP - like other transit solutions from GTT - provides a compelling and quick return on investment for transit agencies by reducing fuel and labour costs. Opticom TSP solutions can even have the potential to reduce fleet requirements. “The Opticom Connected Vehicle Platform is designed to empower transit agencies,” Roberts said. “Combining GTT’s industry-leading Opticom TSP with built-in active schedule and headway management capabilities, the CVP helps keep transit services on time and performing optimally in order to minimize travel times, increase predictability and improve on-time metrics.” In addition to the software-based TSP, schedule and headway applications, the Opticom CVP allows transit managers to monitor and maintain system performance from a central location with cloud-based analytics and reporting. Transit managers can monitor such key metrics as on-time performance, and dwell time and travel time by vehicle or route. Users can also assess and maintain system performance and provide updates to the system from anywhere with Internet access using Opticom Centralized Management Software (CMS). The Opticom CVP is built to expand as an agency’s needs grow. The CVP offers multiple interface options and allows additional applications to 5 be added as needed. In cities that are already equipped with Opticom for emergency vehicle preemption, Opticom CVP can be easily integrated to include service to their transit fleets. Opticom CVP is designed to support all variations of Opticom TSP, including distributed variants that use infrared and/or GPS intersection infrastructure, centralized architectures, and radio or cellbased communications, including DSRC. The Opticom CVP solution is available now from authorized GTT dealers. For more information contact GTT Sales Support via phone at +1 800-258-4610 select Option 1, email, or visit cvp.
