GEWI's TIC Platform: On Display at ITS Texas and ITS Australia

Whether you are looking to provide Interoperability between legacy systems, launch or upgrade a 511 Service, generate Traffic Flows & Predictive models, Traffic Alerts, Traffic Plans & Simulations, report on Work Zones & Road Conditions, run an automated Radio Traffic Advisory system, or produce Navigation Quality Data, TIC3 from GEWI is the solution. And, TIC3, can be configured for Transit applications and Cameras. TIC is a highly configurable commercial off the shelf (COTS) software platform proven in over 100 commercial and government projects operating worldwide. COTS means TIC can be deployed more quickly and affordably than build-your-own solutions. Learn more about TIC3 this week at ITS Texas in Galveston and later this month at ITS Australia. GEWI will also be at Gulf Traffic in Dubai. To schedule a meeting at any of these conferences to discuss your requirements, contact
