Meridian Software Platform

Meridian Software Platform

Meridian is an advanced software system for monitoring and controlling complex systems and devices specializing in management of motorways and tunnels. Applications vary in complexity ranging from tolling systems in Portugal to managing a 9KM tunnel with more than 25.000 devices in Singapore. Operators use Meridian through a rich graphical Interface (GUI) using Menu- and Mouse- driven Windows applications. This GUI, known as the Meridian Workbench, relays real-time status updates of devices through video, images and data-tables as appropriate. By using simple point-and-click, devices can be interrogated further or directly controlled.



BENEFITS OF MERIDIAN


Safety

// Variable speed limits, over speed enforcement, to traveler warning mechanisms
// Response plan system provides easy and fast response mechanisms that help operators to quickly handle any situation on the road, and avoid follow-on accidents

Road Performance

// System provides latest traffic detection algorithms that inform about congestion levels, detects queues and transient situations and provides leading edge incident detection technology
// Modern traffic data analysis and statistical reporting allow the operator to identify bottlenecks and increase flow capacity

Road Network Planning

// Meridian provides statistical analysis tools that allow better planning and help to improve the overall performance of the road network and analysis of road capacities and road usage

Operations

// Meridian’s easy to use interface provides operators with the tools they need to quickly react to situations on the road. The system provides automatic and semi-automatic action to different operational aspects that reduces response times significantly

Map Based User Control

// Easy to use graphical representation of the road network by employing latest GIS technology that is linked with the spatial database of Meridian

Traveler Information

// System provides traveler information via a network of variable message signs and warning signs

Integrated Solution

// Integrated approach to ITS-including CCTV, Traffic Detection Systems, Variable Message Signs, Changeable Message Signs, Hardware Cabinets and all other plant equipment
// All systems can be controlled via Meridian, whereby the system provides the operator with a single interface component to all systems in the environment
// Operators need not switch between applications but can directly change settings in all underlying systems by using Meridian’s comprehensive response plans

Cost Reduction

// Major cost reduction in operational area as well as maintenance cost of equipment
// Through modern user interface design and optimized dialog design Meridian makes handling on multiple situations easy. This increases operator efficiency and reduces costs on the road and in the operations area
