GreenWave™ Advanced Traffic Controller Software

GreenWave is Peek's ATC traffic controller software package for the ATC line of advanced traffic controllers. It is included on every shipped Peek ATC-1000, ATC-2000 and ATC-3000 traffic controller. Featuring a powerful Linux-based multi-process traffic engine and environment, GreenWave is easy to program from the front panel or remotely from one of several NTCIP-based central system software packages, including Peek's IQ Central and Trancorp's TransSuite product. GreenWave is the only controller software on the market that can run multiple traffic engines on the same platform, and switch between them without sending an intersection into Flash mode. It has also demonstrated advanced capabilities in standards compliance and advanced data logging.




Features of GreenWave:

  • Dual Traffic Engine, Phase-based and Interval-based operation in a single unit - The ONLY controller in the world with this capability
  • Support for interchangeable I/O and D modules - modules are auto-recognized

  • Ability to copy screens of parameters between similar parts of the configuration database (e.g. Coordination pattern > pattern, day plan > day plan, etc.)
  • Onscreen diagnostics mode for I/O, Comms, Memory, Real-time Clock, and USB testing
  • Low level device utilities menu for testing keyboard inputs, display performance, operating voltages and other system parameters
  • Backlight and contrast controls for display
  • Supports transitions between phase-based and interval-based operation with no need to restart the controller, merely by switching between patterns

NEW in Version 3.9!

  • Texas Diamond Support
  • Time of Day Commands for phase table objects allow phase timing parameter change by time of day
  • Conditional Service during Coordination

There is now a status on the top right of the runtime status display to show the status of the SD card:
    • BU = busy mounting
    • SD = SD card not mounted
    • NC = no card, could not mount
  • Added the New NTCIP Ring status object
  • Detector Gap Timing with disconnect during green
