osprey-controlOsprey: Control is an Intelligent Transport System (ITS) integration platform, compliant with UTMC standards. Building on Mott MacDonald's rich history in the UTMC domain, it distils 10 years of practical experience into a robust, contemporary solution to enable efficient integration of disparate ITS components.

The browser-based user interface provides a rich map-based view, enabling operators to identify and manage the transportation network.


The Osprey Strategy Manager allows users to easily build automatic responses to transient or persistent network conditions. A wide array of triggers are available, including car park occupancy fill and exit rates, journey times and SCOOT data. Triggers can be combined with standard logical operators to enable comprehensive scenario detection.


The car park management module interfaces directly with UTMC-compliant counters and VMS, or can interface to bespoke CPG systems. In either case, Osprey provides the ability to set guidance signs based on realtime or historic occupancy data. Car parks can be grouped into areas, and sign settings can be automatically or manually overriden.


Osprey natively supports UTMC compliant VMS. A sign setting library allows operators to chose from predefined legends, or create new legends. Legends can include dynamic information such as car park space and journey time information. Osprey also includes support for MS4 type signs, providing the ability to set combinations of pictograms and text.


Osprey integrates with UTC and RMS systems, enabling fault and status information to be received for all connected equipment. The Osprey GUI supports an integrated view of SCOOT data such as congestion and flow, on link and region basis. Commands on UTC can invoked from the Osprey GUI, or from the Strategy Manager.


CCTV provides a key means of evaluating road conditions, and Osprey supports seamless integration of CCTV feeds in the user interface. As well as still and streamed images, Osprey supports operator PTZ control over cameras.


Traffic counter integration is easily achieved, either via UTMC or other interface mechanisms. Osprey supports display of counter locations and receipt of count, flow and alert data. Historic profiles are maintained, and abnormal levels can be used as triggers for the Strategy Manager.


The Osprey GUI supports manual entry and management of Accident, Incident, Event and Roadworks data. Such data can be used to trigger strategies, e.g. to implement a planned response during a road closure. Osprey can easily be integreted with existing streetworks systems, allowing the common database to reflect latest streetworks.


Osprey utilises SIRI and RTIG interfaces to integrate with AVL/RTPI systems. As well as receiving information on vehicle locations and equipment status, the Strategy Manager can make use of buses as probe vehicles, providing an additional source of network status information.


Alerts are generated by Osprey itself, and by connected systems. Alerts are presented in a clear fashion for operators to quickly assimilate and deal with them.



Osprey integrates with environmental and weather sensors to provide meteorological into the common database. Such data can be used to generate alerts and can be monitored by the Strategy Manager.


Osprey allows users to create customised dashboards to monitor different geographic areas of interest such as a road junction and see multiple feeds of information through a single dashboard view.
