TIC for Traffic Flows and Prediction – Available from GEWI TodayTIC provides ready-to-use functions through a consistent platform of common features. One main feature can automatically evaluate and create missing data based on standard, custom, or proprietary algorithms, such as spatial and time completion, and short-term traffic flow forecasts. TIC is a proven, highly scalable, commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) solution, which can be deployed faster, more affordably, and with less risk than build-your-own solutions, as required for use in on-line production systems and off-line research projects.See why TIC is in use in over 100 projects worldwide at GEWI booth #1025 at the ITS World Congress or contact to discuss your requirements.
