Intelligent mobility systems leverage the latest technology to improve the efficiency of commuting and transportation for individuals and goods.
With road safety as a priority, these systems, for example, help optimize emergency or public transit vehicles’ routes by modulating traffic flows through pre-emption of traffic lights systems (synchronization, reduction of travel time, etc.), by-pass work areas by publishing information on variable message signs to facilitate users’ commutes.
Mobility solutions serving the community.
Increasing traffic volumes on our roads requires the use of technology to safely optimize commutes.
CIMA+ has played a pioneering role in the field of intelligent transportation systems since 1995, with the implementation of Montreal’s highway traffic management system. Today, CIMA+ helps clients across Canada develop their technological infrastructure assets, and select the best systems for their needs, whether it is for the planning, designing, procuring, building, or rolling out intelligent transportation solutions.
Our expertise: facts and figures
CIMA+’s achievements span more than 30 years and speak for themselves.
Our specialized services
Rely on our multidisciplinary professionals to meet and exceed your requirements and expectations. We offer a full range of engineering services to successfully deliver your project, from start to finish.
At CIMA+, we understand that congestion puts increasing pressure on existing highway infrastructure assets, and there is a need for innovative solutions that can ensure its sustainability. While these infrastructure assets require sustainable rehabilitation, we also recognize the urgent need for new infrastructure to be built, which means integrating intelligent transportation systems (ITS) into the original design and existing highway networks.
Our ITS team provides solutions for information gathering, traffic management, operator support, and maintenance cost optimization. ITS can address the challenges inherent to road infrastructure assets with technological solutions such as such as video surveillance cameras, video analytics, weather stations, dynamic signage, and vehicle detection and counting.
Urban network management systems use traffic monitoring technologies, traffic signals and a wide range of traveler information systems to manage traffic on city roads.
Municipalities benefit from technological solutions such as traffic control, congestion monitoring and incident response systems. Our intelligent transportation systems (ITS) experts frequently use microsimulation techniques to analyze vehicle and pedestrian traffic movements and interactions in detail to design tailored solutions.
Our team's extensive urban network experience includes expertise in these areas:
- Control centres
- Pre-emption systems for emergency vehicles and buses
- Integrated mobility corridor management systems
- Wireless ITS network infrastructure
- Field equipment
- Dynamic IP addressing systems
- Automated guidance systems for public parking lots
Intelligent transportation systems (ITS) encompass a wide range of solutions based on information and communication technologies to help alleviate congestion, improve road, and transit safety, and increase economic productivity. Many transportation agencies use a variety of ITS solutions to enhance or improve their public transportation services.
Due to the rapid advances in ITS over the past few decades, clients across Canada have come to rely on CIMA+'s in-depth expertise and unbiased advice when it comes to assessing the methods, techniques, and systems offered in the marketplace. Our experts objectively assess a number of ITS systems and select the one that best meets the client's needs, whether it is for bus rapid transit (station and corridor), intermodal management, automated vehicle location or pre-emption systems.
Nowadays, smart cities are linked to sustainable development because they help improve the quality of life, reduce costs and the use of resources, and develop a collaborative approach with residents. CIMA+ is constantly at the leading edge of new communication technologies and is proud to have played a role in many smart city projects.
Automated and connected vehicles
Automated and connected vehicles (ACVs) can detect surrounding conditions and elements through artificial intelligence, sensors, and geolocation (GPS) coordinates. These vehicles have the potential to improve fuel efficiency and reduce traffic congestion, greenhouse gas emissions and distracted driving. ACVs continue to evolve into a reality on urban and provincial road networks. CIMA+ helps clients across Canada prepare for their arrival and the benefits that will come with it.
