Real-Time Real-Time is the next generation virtual traffic management centre - a suite of products which extends the platform into the realm of live congestion monitoring, real-time traffic management and direct influence over driver behaviour through live sat-nav updates. Real-Time provides a single platform for the coordination, planning, communication and monitoring of traffic disruptions, and a unique capability to influence driver behaviour through live sat-nav updates.

It removes the need for physical sensors and cameras throughout the network, and by sourcing live data from in-car systems and mobile phones, puts modern traffic monitoring technology within reach and budget.

For the first time it relates traffic slow downs to their causes. It provides better visibility, and where possible advance warning, to Traffic Control Centre, streetworks and network planning officers about issues on the road network, and offers more accurate and timely information to the travelling public - with a view to delivering better outcomes in the following areas:

  • Communication of traffic disruptions to the public and stakeholders
  • Reactive management of incidents and unplanned disruptions
  • Proactive management of planned works and events
  • Optimisation of the network usage during works schemes
  • Monitoring and reporting of key route performance

Elgin has invested in developing its solution with additional tools for the real-time monitoring of traffic in relation to roadworks and other disruptions, and live communication of road closures to drivers via sat-nav channels. Access to historic TomTom data will allow pre planning of works to be informed on location and time specific congestion issues in the past.
