Software engineering is a vital part of our business and, in most cases, we will engineer circuit design and custom program software to fit the application. All products are rigorously tested before release.

Our own System Integration software is TRAMS, a Windows® based software package that works with clients’ servers, tablets and standard desktop PCs and enables us to easily configure and tune bespoke solutions to meet specific traffic management needs.

TRAMS can provide the features of UTMC common database to control signs, detectors and car park counters at a value-for-money cost. It is suited to an extensive range of applications providing clear and concise information to aid network capacity optimisation.
