June 26, 2015 - The new Apple campus, under construction in Cupertino, California, will be a four-story circular building that is planned to house over 12,000 employees, with a footprint that is 80-percent landscape and only 20-percent structure. As you would expect from Apple, progressive technology and environmental consideration are important aspects of this massive project, which is scheduled to complete in 2016.

As part of this construction project, intersections adjacent to the campus will be equipped with EMTRAC signal priority. EMTRAC is a key provider of signal priority in this region, providing technology for both transit and first-response agencies.

As you would expect with a new campus of this size, traffic is expected to increase after the project is complete, and the EMTRAC system will enable first responders to travel both quickly and safely on area streets.

Transit agencies also benefit from EMTRAC Transit Signal Priority, as buses and trains are able to maintain schedule adherence, while preserving headway times, sending requests for actuated signals, responding to conditional scenarios in real time, and adapting priority requests based on current traffic conditions.
