Active Congestion Management

Congestion Management and Mapping

Congestion is inevitable on roadways that many of us use every day. Whether an accident causes a disruption or coordination between signals has not been optimized, resulting congestion often cascades and can be long lasting.

Acyclica allows municipalities to map out and manage congestion in a time and cost effective manner. We offer industry expertise for active congestion management. Learn more about Acyclica offerings including Congestion Management as a Service by contacting us today.

Acyclica can also connect multiple agencies who are interested in sharing selected information with neighboring jurisdictions or metropolican planning organizations to create a more cooperative traffic network.

Signal Management

One of the best ways to alleviate congestion on roadways is to optimize signal timing throughout a city. Acyclica provides advanced traffic engineering tools to optimize signal timing. Use Acyclica's Timing Plan Analysis report to provide insights on current timing plans and where there is room for improvement. Pair these studies with neighboring cities and municipalities to optimize signal-timing across an entire region including ICMPs. 

Intersection Delay Analysis

Acyclica has developed sophisticated algorithms designed to increase the accuracy of congestion measures for freeways, corridors and intersections. These real-time and historical tools simplify detailed congestion analysis at all of these locations. Users can easily calculate dwell times at an intersection from any given approach and determine the wait associated with different turning movements.

These tools are part of Acyclica's Signal Timing Module which provides analytics to improve the efficiency of existing infrastructure without building more!

Route and Segment Delay Analysis

Acyclica's travel-time algorithms provide insights for travel times along each segment of a route for any time period. Users can calculate delay along a route for every day of the week, report travel-times from stop-bar to stop-bar, or compare any day of week over the past months with just a few clicks.

Origin - Destination Analysis

Use origin - destination (OD) algorithms for a cross-way intersection or throughout an entire city to see traffic flow patterns. OD analysis is an effective tool to optimize the roadways of a city based on understanding where people want to go. The information provided by these tools can also help with new route planning, roadway expansion, signal timing, and much more.

Use the origin-destination tool to monitor turning movement counts and percentages 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Managed Lane Discrimination and Ramp Metering

Acyclica technology is the only roadside ITS sensor which can discriminate travel-times and speeds on managed lanes (Express lanes, high occupancy vehicle [HOV], etc) and general purpose lanes using only roadside detectors. This enables real-time analysis and comparison of speeds even for frontage roads and freeways for complete situational awareness. Measuring congestion on and off the freeway is critical for applications such as dynamic tolling, congestion pricing and ramp metering.
