Meet SPOT™

An indispensable platform to meet the challenges of modern transit operations

Biggest. Best. Number one. These are all words you’ll hear when exploring your options for intelligent transit systems (ITS). While these words may sound impressive, they offer nothing when it comes to solving the specific needs of your transit operation. We’d like you to consider a different concept when evaluating your transit solutionfoundation.

A foundation provides the platform for growth and performance. It delivers stability, reliability, and power required to adapt and perform across multiple operating conditions and satisfy the varying needs of riders, operators, dispatchers, and administrators. A solid foundation is what our SPOT ITS delivers to our customers and provides the freedom to choose how and what capabilities to prioritize in order to deliver a “right-fit” transit solution unique to their situation.

SPOT™ is an open architecture system that utilizes commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware. This design delivers the foundation for simplified expansion and compatibility with hardware and software systems. At its core, SPOT is a modular system that allows features and capabilities to be added quickly and affordably to deliver powerful enhancements to existing systems. New software functionality can be added with minimal effort, and hardware components often plug into the existing SPOT™ components without incurring substantial infrastructure investment. Third-party development is simplified through open API access to the same tools ETA developers use to create SPOT’s powerful capabilities, allowing our customers the freedom to develop their own custom solutions.

Cloud-hosted technology
