ITS Solutions

Journey Time Solution (JTS)

A comprehensive, cost-effective and stand-alone solution for short-term road works projects.

Incorporating the latest software and hardware technology, it was developed in response to interest from a leading infrastructure services supplier and reflects MVIS’ on-going dedication to developing innovative ITS solutions in partnership with public and private sector traffic management organisations.

MVIS’ JTS enables road users to make informed decisions about how to minimise journey disruption, warning of delays and advising of their extent, providing users with the opportunity to take an alternative route if necessary. It incorporates a portable VMS of either size, two Jenoptik Vector integrated ANPR cameras, MVIS’ Web Studio™ sign management software and two of MVIS’ Solar Intelligent Platforms (IP).

The mobile VMS-A sign and first Solar IP are deployed towards the entry to the road works and second Solar IP in advance of an exit. Journey time information gathered using the Vector cameras is transmitted via a cloud server, and Web Studio™ is used to display the details on the sign, allowing road users to decide whether to endure the road works or take the exit to embark on a diversion.

Available for hire throughout the UK, it is portable and can be quickly and easily installed without the need for civil engineering or external power provision. Journey Time Solution is also available as Bluetooth JTS, Tom-Tom JTS and Datex JTS.
