Northrop Grumman Corporation, the New York State Department of Transportation and the New York State Police have received the Project of the Year Award from the Intelligent Transportation Society of New York. The winning project, a transportation-management center, provides public-safety services and assists New York travelers with traffic information. The Intelligent Transportation Society Project of the Year Awards honors a program’s use of intelligent transportation solutions and their impact on a New York transportation issue.
The Hudson Valley Transportation Management Center, located in Hawthorne, N.Y., coordinates area-wide highway and transit management and incident-response information and disseminates it to travelers. Jointly operated by the New York State Dept. of Transportation and New York State Police, the center includes intelligent-transportation technology designed by Northrop Grumman’s Information Technology (IT) sector.
Northrop Grumman integrated an advanced traffic-management system that includes geospatial mapping and closed-circuit television capabilities. The system interfaces with traffic sensors and dynamic message signs, as well as incident-management screens that help traffic analysts, operators and dispatchers keep travelers aware of the condition of the region’s roadways.
