The second phase spans across vital corridors, with a plan to install 372 Traffic Signals and various ITS elements, including Yunex Traffic RSU2X and Yutraffic Concert. This comprehensive approach aims to enhance economic, environmental, and social outcomes for the cities and communities under CVAG‘s umbrella.


Smart Region Transformation:

The CV SYNC project positions Coachella Valley as a smart region model, with its closely monitored innovative traffic management initiatives. The installation of Yunex Traffic’s RSUs serves as a template for future smart regions, showcasing advancements in connectivity.

Addressing Real-Time Challenges:

The RSU installation introduces a dynamic traffic management platform, tackling real-time challenges faced by the community. From traffic congestion and pedestrian safety concerns to road hazards and accidents, the initiative prioritizes stability and power, efficiently addressing environmental commitments and sustainability targets.

Connectivity for Major Events:

With Coachella Valley hosting major public events like professional tennis tournaments and the annual Coachella music and arts festival, CV Sync becomes crucial for managing traffic during peak times. The installation includes a travel-time license, allowing CVAG to measure trip times from connected vehicles, aiding in determining appropriate signal times.

Integration of Yutraffic Concert:

CVAG traffic engineers are integrating Yunex’s Yutraffic Concert software into the advanced traffic control system (ATMS). This integration empowers engineers to control RSUs, sending targeted traveler information messages to any vehicle with an on-board CV unit.
