Adoption of Ada and GNAT technology brings safety, reliability and security to SCoPE
WINTER SPRINGS, FL, February 17, 2010 – Advanced Technologies, developer of real-time safety critical embedded systems, today announced its selection of the Ada language and GNAT Ada technology to implement the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Signal Control Program Environment (SCoPE). This Open Source system will control traffic instruments, such as lights and call buttons, while interfacing with various sensors and detectors at intersections. It will also implement new traffic flow and preemption algorithms. The GNAT environment was previously utilized for the SCoPE proof-of-concept research prototype, and is now being used for final product development.
