Genetec, a leading tech provider of unified security, public safety, operations, and a 2017 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program Winner for Best Video Data Storage Solution, today announced its next-generation traffic operations platform, Genetec Traffic Sense™, is now immediately available from select Genetec certified systems integrators in North America.
Genetec Traffic Sense introduces a new, modern, and highly efficient way to manage traffic operations, delivering a unified view of real-time conditions and vehicle flow to cities, bridge and tunnel operators, state transportation departments, and border crossing agencies, so they can identify and respond to incidents more efficiently, with a complete view of the traffic situation.
Real-time notifications, automated workflows, and guided responses enable traffic management operators to make timely decisions, resulting in drivers getting to their destinations faster.
Displaying data on a single interface cuts through the noise and lets operators focus on the tasks that matter – whether that is dynamically updating electronic road signs, or dispatching Emergency Response Units.

Consolidate Traffic Data
Break down the silos between your systems.
Traffic Sense brings together data from traffic sensors, parking systems, dynamic message sign control, video cameras along routes, and analytics in a single, unified platform, helping you understand unfolding events and long-term trends by continuously analyzing information from all your sensors and systems and comparing it to historical data.
Through embedded automation and incident management, the platform correlates information from multiple sources, detects situations and notifies users in real-time.
Sophisticated workflows are then triggered to guide your response. This lets you optimize automated responses to a wider range of situations and events.
With Traffic Sense working silently in the background to guide traffic operations teams, drivers experience smoother, quicker journeys – no matter how fast technologies and environments evolve.
“The growing adoption of new traffic technologies, ride sharing, connected vehicles, and, eventually, self-driving cars, means keeping pace with infrastructure developments is harder than ever,” explains Christian Chénard-Lemire, Team Lead for Intelligent Mobility at Genetec.
“Traffic Sense gives traffic management operators the ability to adapt to these changes.”
“It improves their incident response times, while providing drivers with vital journey information to reduce their travel time and decrease congestion.”
Traffic Sense unifies traffic data, dynamic message sign control, video monitoring, video analytics, and incident management.
By tapping into a variety of data sources from roadside sensors to third-party probe data for travel-time analytics, Traffic Sense automatically identifies congestion and abnormal traffic conditions.
It correlates traffic data with associated video feeds, all displayed within dynamic maps of roadways, giving operators instant and complete awareness of what is happening.
Armed with this information, traffic operators can quickly bring things back to normal following an incident.
Continuously adapt and improve your traffic operations
Traffic conditions and challenges continuously evolve – new infrastructure is built, roadworks temporarily reroute traffic and driver behaviors change.
Traffic Sense gives you the flexibility you need to adapt and improve your procedures and workflows to changing conditions
Traffic Sense enables organizations to define response plans to guide their operators and ensure that teams respond to incidents in a consistent, efficient and less stressful way.
By presenting standard operating procedures on-screen, Traffic Sense guides operators through every step of the process, from identification to resolution.
With Traffic Sense, operators can also update signs along affected roadways directly within the software platform, ensuring drivers are well informed at all times.
While traditional advanced traffic management systems require extensive custom development and are slow to adapt to changing environments, Traffic Sense is an open platform designed to quickly and seamlessly integrate new and emerging technologies.
This reduces customers’ total cost of ownership and shortens implementation cycles significantly.
