Idox Transport announced the launch of latest versions of Juno, Icarus, Strategy Manager and Admin. This launch is aimed at enhancing the robustness of Idox Transport's products deployed across different geographies and at the same time, offer intelligent traffic solutions to the road network authorities and fleet operators.

All the products' functionalities have been carefully enhanced that would help to eliminate impediments restricting co-ordinated intelligence within an authority and between authorities across different road networks. The best part about the rollouts is that most of the new features significantly slash operational expenses, offer strategic control and help to streamline daily operations.

Idox Transport has been experiencing unprecedented success across more than 40 authorities, but continues to invest in releases of all its products to improve their functionality and performance. Following is the list of enhanced features in all of the aforementioned products.

Juno is an adaptive control platform for real time traffic signals that allows operators of the scheme to monitor, manage and set strategies in line with their requirements. It facilitates the implementation of 3rd party and bespoke algorithms in real time to curb the growing congestion problems having a wider impact on road users and the economy.
