The GRAA is a leading international competition to identify and honor excellence, innovation, and exceptional achievement. This year’s awards honored ten projects from countries around the world, with NYCDOT and TransCore receiving the award for excellence in intelligent transportation systems (ITS) and traffic management. Also in June of 2012, they received the Most Outstanding ITS Project of the Year by ITS New York.

The City’s state-of-the-art ITS Infrastructure Deployment Program includes modernization of the citywide computerized traffic control system which monitors and controls 12,400 traffic signals throughout the five boroughs – creating the largest such system in North America. It also includes Manhattan’s Midtown in Motion program – the most advanced active traffic management system. TransCore designed New York’s next generation traffic control system that includes TransCore's TransSuite® traffic management software and its multiprotocol Encompass® radio frequency identification (RFID) readers, KLD’s adaptive control module, Advanced Transportation Controllers provided by Peek traffic, and other related equipment using the New York City Wireless Network (NYCWiN).

TransCore President Tracy Marks commented, “We’re honored to receive this award and thank the extremely talented and dedicated individuals that served on our team. We are proud to have served the City of New York as it undertook such a monumental task and believe it will serve as a model for other ITS deployments around the world.”

Mohamad Talas, the City’s deputy director, Systems Engineering, ITS Management, stated, “We are pleased in winning the IRF award for the NYC ITS Modernization Project and hope our success will provide a new real-world model for the use of current advanced technologies to support active traffic management in big cities.”
