Solve your corridor congestion and signal timing challenges with InSync adaptive traffic control

Free webinar with the facts on adaptive traffic control results. Visit

For decades, public works departments and traffic engineers struggled to reduce congestion, delay, stops and accidents on busy arterial roadways. Now state and local agencies across the U.S. are running the InSync adaptive traffic control solution on dozens of corridors and realizing unprecedented benefits. It is common to see stop reductions of 90%, delay reductions of 75%, travel time reductions of 40%, and significant reductions in fuel usage and emissions.

Join us for an information-packed webinar to see how adaptive traffic control can benefit your roadways and communities. In only a few minutes you will see and hear before-and-after results reported by independent engineering firms, experiences of traffic professionals who installed InSync and other systems, details on the artificial intelligence and hardware components which make up the InSync system and more.
