An Intelligent Signal-Priority System

The EMTRAC Priority Management System uses precise navigation technology and secure RF communication to detect equipped transit, emergency, and municipal vehicles and to place priority or preemption requests to intersection signal-control equipment.

Effective fire traffic preemption (that is, Emergency Vehicle Preemption or EVP) is best accomplished by a system capable of safely serving multiple equipped vehicles approaching the same intersection. The system should also include multiple priority levels for individual vehicles. The EMTRAC system includes these capabilities and many others.

Traffic signal priority may include more advanced features, such as adaptive priority. EMTRAC adaptive signal priority enables vehicles to communicate current roadway conditions so traffic controllers can adjust phase timing before granting traffic signal priority. Other capabilities, such as Conditional Signal Priority and Actuated Priority are also available with the EMTRAC system. Refer to our Transit Signal Priority (TSP) page for more information.

Products

The EMTRAC system consists of three major components—vehicle equipment, wayside equipment (commonly installed at intersections), and the software used to configure and monitor the system.

$10.00

EMTRAC-equipped vehicles carry a compact, yet rugged, Vehicle Computer Unit (VCU), which is connected to a dual RF/satellite-positioning antenna.

$10.00

Wayside equipment includes the cabinet-mounted Priority Detector, which is available in RF, cellular, optical, and universal multi-band models.

$10.00

EMTRAC Optical Priority Detectors serve as universal phase selectors to be used for encoded or non-encoded requests.
