UTOPIA Urban Traffic Control System offers a wide range of strategies designed to suit any road network. In the fully adaptive mode, it constantly monitors and forecasts the traffic status and optimises the control strategy according to flow efficiency and/or environmental criteria. This gives high performance even with unpredictable traffic conditions. The system can assign weighted, selective or absolute priority to specific vehicles (e.g. buses/trams running behind schedule) without penalising other traffic. UTOPIA was developed during the 1980s. Constant innovation and enhancements have made it one of the most advanced Urban Traffic Control systems in the world. It is successfully operating in dozens of metropolitan areas today.
