Short cycle lengths between 60 seconds and 90 seconds are recommended for red lights* — but emergency personnel may need this time to save a life.


Investing in quality mobility and traffic flow solutions can optimize the flow of traffic at signalized intersections, whether you live in a small town or a metropolitan area. If your intersections aren’t prepared for the influx of traffic at rush hour or an unexpected backup following an accident, this can cause delays on all roadways in the area — which can be especially detrimental for emergency personnel. TAPCO’s variety of platform-based AI traffic solutions are designed to combat congestion and provide better mobility throughout any community. 

For communities with railroad crossings in high traffic areas, it’s worth implementing a Rail Predictive Mobility (RPM) traffic solution. Linq Thingz™ is a predictive mobility platform that notifies first responders, public works and citizens of blocked railroad crossings, allowing them to opt for a different route before they’ve reached the crossing.

The platform utilizes various types of detection to predict the size, speed and direction of the train, as well as determine when it’ll reach the crossing. By delivering advance notification of a blocked rail crossing, Linq Thingz™ eliminates idling and delays in order to improve travel times.
