VARIABLE SPEED LIMIT (VSL)

ASK FOR A QUOTE

Ver-Mac worked closely with Utah DOT and a Consulting Engineering Company to develop a Portable Variable Speed Limit (VSL) System designed to automatically change prevailing speeds downstream near active work zones. The system is designed to post the work zone speed limit only when approaching the active work zone. Utilizing portable sensors (Speed Mac VP), Ver-Mac’s JamLogic® software gathers speed data near the active work zone and can lower speeds further to harmonize speeds through the work zone. The test data supports higher compliance of speed limits by the motoring public near the active work zone and a reduction in work zone incidents.

VSL OBJECTIVES: • Improve worker & motorist safety

• Reduce speed differential approaching work zones • Improve harmonization of speeds through work zones

VSL APPLICATIONS • Any multi-lane highway or interstate work zone without robust barrier between motoring public and workers • Asphalt resurfacing projects • Any applications where a lane is taken intermittingly for construction VSL FEATURES • Two-digit 18-in. white LED display • 48 x 60 MUTCD compliant Speed Limit Sign • Speed-Mac VP Portable Sensor • JamLogic Software provides history of date, time, GPS location, speed and beacon activation.

DYNAMIC LATE MERGE (ZIPPER MERGE)

ASK FOR A QUOTE

In 2004, Minnesota DOT, Ver-Mac’s JamLogic division and a Consulting Engineering Company analyzed the benefits of Dynamic Late Merge (Zipper Merge) applications. The system is designed to have motorists use all lanes approaching the merge point and then alternate into one lane at the merge point. Utilizing portable sensors before a lane reduction, the system analyzes speed and occupancy of each lane before the merge. Based on the traffic flow data (Free Flow traffic, Slow traffic, or Stopped traffic), the system will provide specific real-time lane messages to motorists upstream to even the flow of traffic through the merge. The Zipper Merge is often used in combination with an AQW System to provide a more robust solution.

DYNAMIC LATE MERGE OBJECTIVES: • Improve worker & motorist safety • Reduce length of queues entering work zones • Increase throughput of interstate lane closures • Reduce work zone rear-end collisions • Reduce driver rage

Speed-Mac VP

DYNAMIC LATE MERGE APPLICATIONS • Any multi-lane highway and interstate work zone with lane closure • Expected daily queues of a ¼ mile or more • Routes with high-truck traffic • Routes where topography will limit visibility of approaching queue

DYNAMIC LATE MERGE FEATURES • Speed Mac VP sensor

• Portable Message Signs or Wig Wag Warning Trailers • Microwave sensors can be integrated into the system

Speed-Mac VPs are dynamic and can be moved around without affecting the logic. Ver-Mac’s JamLogic software will automatically recognize the new location of the Speed-Mac VPs.
