As end customers have more demanding needs, large companies are struggling to deliver on-time and on-budget. Saturn Eclipse provide a service to outsource software development and minimise internal corporate frameworks. Saturn Eclipse has a rigorous quality assurance process to ensures that the delivery of software projects are suitable for large organisations.
With over 40 years of traffic experience, Saturn Eclipse are well positioned to deliver traffic systems that require specialist knowledge of the sector. Saturn Eclipse support companies on large traffic projects by using a mixture of consultancy and fixed-price work. With a resource of employees and contractors, Saturn Eclipse can respond quickly to pressing requirements and solve challenging traffic software problems.
Saturn Eclipse has extensive experience in the development, population and utilisation of road network models. This includes the development of schemas for the efficient storage, extraction and manipulation of associated data in a variety of traffic and infrastructure related applications.
The Saturn Eclipse team’s experience of traffic monitoring goes back more than 25 years. This has included the overall design of systems for the measurement, retrieval, storage and usage of traffic data derived from vehicle presence detectors (e.g. inductive loops), ANPR cameras and vehicle tracking systems. The emphasis of this experience is with the control centre handling, storage and utilisation of the traffic data for large inter urban road networks.
Saturn Eclipse has worked on techniques for attributing a variety of traffic measurements from different sources to a road network model. This has created a unified data set providing a historic record of network performance and the formulation of ‘profiles’ which reflect day type expectations of traffic volumes and journey times on each of the network links.
The distribution of traffic information to a large and diverse audience requires the use of well defined and widely used standards. Saturn Eclipse is familiar with the techniques (e.g. Web services) and standards (e.g. DATEX II) that are used by the Traffic information community for the machine to machine exchange of information between control centres and have recently completed the delivery of a DATEX II publication system as part of the National Traffic Information System.
