Mott MacDonald’s new UTMC product Osprey takes flight

Mott MacDonald has launched its next generation Urban Traffic Management and Control (UTMC) common database system called Osprey. Following on from its highly successful Common Data Management Facility and drawing on over a decade of experience in the UTMC field, the consultancy is bringing together contemporary technology with industry experience to help clients manage the UK’s road network.

As one of the key designers and suppliers of UTMC systems, Mott MacDonald has successfully delivered systems across the UK for key clients such as Norfolk County, City of Edinburgh, Glasgow City, and Leeds City councils. The consultancy also recently delivered one of the UK’s first regional systems for the Tyne and Wear authorities.

Mott MacDonald’s extensive experience in UTMC has shaped the Osprey product to meet the challenging demands placed on transport operators in terms of network management. Osprey is designed to be an end-to-end offering to help local authorities deliver their transport plan objectives.

The three main Osprey modules support control room staff in network management, promote offline analysis of data and provide a platform for delivery of information to the travelling public.

Osprey Control is the central Osprey module, delivering an effective Integrated Transport System (ITS) integration platform, compliant with UTMC standards, for local authority ITS equipment. It provides a professionally styled map-based user interface, enabling operators to easily assimilate current network status and to manage and control connected equipment. Key modules include car park guidance and strategy, fault, asset and journey time management. Mott MacDonald offers a huge range of off-the-shelf adapters which can be used to support integration with a wide range of systems.

Osprey Analyse allows users to assess the impact that changes in traffic management and improvements in ITS have on the traffic flows and the environment, while allowing complex scenarios and trends to be investigated. It proves a useful tool to monitor key performance indicators and to analyse before and after scheme implementation. A suite of data-loaders allows the system to collect data from various sources including Osprey Control and other UTMC systems. Information is stored centrally, with the system providing web-based historical analysis and reporting facilities.

Osprey Inform provides the tools to support outreach to the public and enable cross-organisation data sharing. A wide range of public website options are available, from simple display of dynamic information to subscription-based alert mechanisms. The Osprey Inform website can be tailored to the sources of information available from all local and national transportation providers appropriate to, and available in, specific areas. The module optionally includes a real-time display screen capability, providing access in public spaces. Smartphone apps for a range of devices are also available, allowing easy access to data for the public while on the move. Publication of data through mechanisms such as DATEXII is also provided.
