Helping Seattle’s Traffic Operators See the Big Picture

As Seattle has continued to grow with the influx of new tech companies, while limited by the lack of space for new roads, the Seattle Department of Transportation has had to transform as well. The SDOT has improved its ability to monitor traffic  from its rebuilt Transportation Operations Center.

To keep track of city traffic, the SDOT monitors the roads via a video display wall consisting of Mitsubishi high-def projection cubes. Those cubes will provide 9-to-11 years of use, even when run 24/7.

Find out how the operators use the wall to keep Seattle’s traffic flowing, and find out why the SDOT called AVI-SPL “a great integrator.”
