The new system will provide the 40km section with greater interoperability to ensure faster and more reliable trips for Sydney drivers. Under the terms of the new agreement, SICE will also provide support and maintenance for the next seven years.
SICE’s flagship product, SIDERA, is a highly configurable commercial-off-the-shelf technology to suit customers’ unique roadways and requirements. SIDERA is a world-leading, fully integrated OMCS that allows road operators and maintainers to seamlessly manage the entire operation, surveillance, traffic management, and life safety equipment.
The system is currently in use on multiple sites across Australia and New Zealand.
