TIC3 From GEWI - It's A Whole New Ballgame!

TIC3 from GEWI is the latest generation of the globally popular traffic data processing software. TIC3 is a whole new approach to collecting, storing, creating, monitoring, viewing and distributing traffic (and other) data.  TIC3's revolutionary new architecture allows for quick and easy configuration for any data type and data format.  With new technologies being created for generating traffic data including Bluetooth, GPS, camera-generated speed data, RFID and more, it's critical that your system can accept these new data types.  TIC is a highly configurable commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) software platform proven in over 125 commercial and government projects operating worldwide.  COTS means TIC can be deployed more quickly and affordably than build-your-own solutions.   Visit GEWI in Houston in booth #333 ITS America, online at, or to discuss your requirements, contact
