The EMTRAC system is uniquely capable of helping buses take full advantage of existing BRT features while helping transit agencies implement a high-quality "transit system that delivers fast, comfortable, and cost-effective urban mobility."
Right Turn from Dedicated BRT Lane - Monterrey, MX
The EMTRAC system enhances the following "essential features that define BRT"—without requiring additional hardware:
Dedicated Right-of-Way and Busway Alignment: EMTRAC-equipped vehicles are able to automatically open entrance gates to dedicated BRT lanes.
Off-Board Fare Collection: Vehicles may request signal priority at near-side stops (depending on door status) or while approaching far-side stops (depending on stop-request status).
Intersection treatments: In addition to signal priority, precision vehicle detection allows for lane-specific actuated phasing.
Platform-Level Boarding: Account for faster loading times by customizing the conditions under which priority is requested. As a result, signal phases are not altered until necessary.
Transit agencies are also able to monitor real-time BRT activity with the EMTRAC Central Monitor system.
