Winner of the 2023 ITSNow Innovation Awards Announced

Alistair Gollop, Founder of ITS Now, has released the shortlist and winner for the 2023 @ITSNow
Innovation Awards. These awards reflect innovation within the Intelligent Transport Systems sector
and were announced in the current episode of the popular @ITSNow YouTube channel.

The winner of the 2023 @ITS Now Innovation Award

The Yunex Traffic, Fusion Urban Traffic Control system.
This moves forward from the existing capabilities used by the majority of highway authorities in the
UK, and is currently being trialled in London and Hampshire, and is due for general release later this
year. The importance of this new UTC platform cannot be understated, it is as big a development as
SCOOT was when it was first introduced by TrL in the 1970s.

In second place

Traffic Group Signals, Metro temporary traffic signal, and in particular the software configuration for
this, which is a very sophisticated and capable package.

In third place

PTC 3 traffic signal controller from Swarco. This includes a very capable technology platform which
features a number of innovations.

Congratulations to our Innovation Award winners, we’ll be looking at some of these in the
Technology Insights series in coming episodes, so don’t miss those to find out more.
