For Synchro plus SimTraffic’s 20th anniversary, Trafficware announces the release of version 9.0 of the most popular and widely-used traffic optimization and simulation tool. The latest version focuses on user features including the ability to create custom toolbars, view ports and one-click intersection coding with the new template feature, all within an enhanced user interface. Added functionality for optimization includes weighting factors during the signal optimization routine to further refine signal timing plans aimed at improving arterial traffic flow. Additional detailed analysis can be performed using the new result summary table. Implementation of the HCM 2010 method is updated in Synchro 9 to include the analysis for pedestrians at two-way stop control intersections.
“Trafficware is committed to bringing innovation and technology to the traffic industry, as well as a broad portfolio of products from planning and simulation through operations and optimization. Our customers rely on Trafficware to equip them with the ability to solve the most complex traffic management problems,” said Jon Newhard, CEO of Trafficware. “Improving traffic management starts with planning and optimization and with Synchro as an industry standard, Trafficware is continuing to invest in innovation for the sake of the industry, whether that investment is in organic product development, partnership, or acquisition. The release of version 9 is a major step forward and Trafficware is committed to additional investment in and enhancement of this industry-leading product,” adds Newhard.
After participating in Trafficware’s Synchro 9 beta program, Matthew Johnson PE, PTOE, PTP, and President of Johnson Traffic Design said, “I love the upgrades Trafficware made in Synchro 9. The user interface improvements are great, like view ports and dockable and customizable toolbars. Applying the new weighting factors during optimization make timing corridors and networks easier and produces a better coordinated timing plan. With the new ability to export the optimization results I am able to review the results of my modifications quickly and easily.”
