Idox Transport’s Icarus – RTI is a real time vehicle tracking and management solution that enables public transport operators to keep track of vehicles’ movements within the network.

Core competencies of Icarus enables it to populate key road network information from UTMC systems, capture data from desperate sources, interpret data irrespective of their format and present it in the most simplest and uncluttered format for the operators to attain strategic control.

Icarus – RTI helps to achieve maximum cost benefits in operations of public transportation by timely communicating critical network issues such as disruptions, incidents, accidents, roadworks and events that are likely to have a major impact on the services.

Icarus enables operators to schedule services in accordance with planned and current traffic conditions, take into account current passenger journey behaviour and optimise operational efficiency.

Icarus has been architected using the latest web development technologies that enables users to view and interact with the system using internet-enabled devices anywhere anytime. This has the additional advantage for on-street assessments for inspectors and the like.
