Tagmaster Group, has, through its US subsidiary Sensys Networks Inc., received its first order from the Greek market and it involves the modernisation of the traffic management system in Thessaloniki, Greece’s second largest city after Athens.
The city authorities, via the system integrator Siemens Mobility and Traffic Technique, have chosen Sensys Network’s wireless detection technology for the large scale data collection system being deployed in connection with their advanced traffic control equipment on the main arterial roadways. The city’s traffic department needed a reliable platform to gather 24/7 data on daily, weekly, and seasonal traffic patterns that they will use to optimise inner city traffic flow.
“After a trial with different technologies, Sensys Network’s wireless detection technology was chosen because of its superior accuracy combined with easy installation and cost efficiency. It is very gratifying and shows that our wireless detection platform enables cities like Thessaloniki to get the high-quality data required by modern traffic management systems and to do it in considerably less time and a lower cost,” said Jonas Svensson, CEO, Tagmaster. The new system will be deployed later in 2020 and includes 430 magnetometer sensors, 55 access points, and 220 wireless repeaters.
