Rennicks Virtual Journey Time System
Rennicks Virtual Journey Time System [RVJTS] a first of its kind solution to the issue of journey time. RVJTS allows everyone from Tier 1 contractors to event organisers to display journey time accurately and in real time, without the need for hardware deployment. Not only does this provide significant cost savings, but allows infinite flexibility when compared to a hardware solution using ANPR or Bluetooth. Using crowd sourced data RVJTS allows the creation and amendment of routes with an associated journey time being immediately available. No time lag, no nonsense.
Highways England have said: “We’re pleased we’ve been able to use the new technology to provide drivers with live times for diversions so they know exactly how long their journey will take when sections of the motorway are closed.
“We would previously have had to install number plate recognition equipment along diversion routes to provide this information, which wouldn’t have been a realistic option for a scheme like ours where different diversions may be needed each night.
“The new technology relies entirely on using remote data so there’s no need for equipment along the diversion route – just for an electronic sign to be put in place at the start of the closure.”
Rennicks UK say: ”Clear and accurate information, presented to drivers in a timely manner, will improve the overall network experience for motorists.
“The use of Rennicks Virtual Journey Time System (RVJTS) delivered by Rennicks UK, and their variable message sign (VMS) rental partner Clancy Plant on the Manchester smart motorway project, shows one step towards that reality.”
