Tunnel and Freeway Management

More safety with modular tunnel and freeway management.

Our advanced traffic management system helps make tunnels and highways safer – protecting people, buildings and the environment – with situational warnings and speed limits.

Yutraffic Varia

The next generation of highway

and tunnel control systems.

Our highway and tunnel control software Yutraffic Varia can be used for interurban and urban freeways, highways and tunnels. It provides comprehensive tunnel and highway management.

Efficient and demand-based traffic management

  • Monitors and controls lighting, ventilation, power, fire detection and pumps in the tunnel.
  • Controls variable message and traffic signs, as well as permanent lighting signs and barriers.
  • Provides data to traffic information services.
  • Can integrate toll systems, video systems, emergency call systems, and environmental and traffic data collection systems.
  • Works easily and smoothly with traffic centers and outstations of various types.

Seamless integration of your existing systems

Yutraffic Varia incorporates all the expertise of our traffic experts – from design and development, through testing and commissioning, to integration into your traffic management concept. Yutraffic Varia is structured in such a way that a middleware is used for the standard functions of the control system, which already provides many basic functions (e.g. hot standby, user interface, multilingualism, user administration, archiving, reports, etc.). In this way, Yutraffic Varia helps to create space for the development and implementation of project-specific functions (e.g. ventilation, lighting, traffic control, etc.) – for traffic management that is perfectly tailored to your needs.

Scalable – start small, evolve fast

With Yutraffic Varia, you can implement the traffic management system that suits your needs: from a compact motorway control centre, to a tunnel control centre with various operating facilities, to a fully developed, higher-level Yutraffic Varia Nova control centre. The system can be used at all control levels and grows with your needs – including connection to systems for interurban, urban and parking traffic.

Highest safety standards

Safety is a top priority for Yutraffic Varia. The system meets the requirements for functional safety (IEC 61508). The security processes are certified according to ISO/IEC 27001, and in the area of IT security, the system ensures appropriate security levels according to IEC 62443 (Industrial communication networks – IT security for networks and systems). As a result, Yutraffic Varia not only improves the safety of road users in tunnels and on motorways, but also protects buildings from damage and operators and society from costs and risks.

Building Information Modeling & Digital Twin

Tunnel projects go digital.

Our digital solutions allow tunnel operators to see how the tunnel will operate during the design phase, saving time and money while ensuring safe operation.

Building Information Modeling and Digital Twin

We use state-of-the-art methods for tunnel projects. Using a Building Information Management (BIM) model, a virtual tunnel with all its components is first created together with the project partners involved. Only when this model meets all the requirements and specifications will the real tunnel be built. The model can then be developed into a Digital Twin of the tunnel and used throughout the tunnel’s lifecycle.

Your benefits:

  • Higher project quality
  • Faster implementation
  • Reduced project costs 
  • Optimized operation
