Argonaut is the number one choice and market leader for UTMC command and control systems across the whole of England and Wales. Argonaut enables Traffic Managers to model, monitor and control the environmental effects of travel as well as reducing congestion to maximise the use of a limited road network, all using UTMC, RTIG, SIRI and other recognised industry protocols.

utmc logoIdox Transport's UTMC compliant common database provides an open standard data store to collect and disseminate traffic and transport information from existing or new UTMC sub systems. It also provides Traffic Managers with the ability to develop better, integrated traffic and transport control strategies in line with current national and local transport policies.

There are a number of modules and options available depending on the network and traffic management needs and below is a short description of each.


datasource_40 Argonaut - uses sophisticated modern web technologies to deliver UTMC systems for the 21st century. Engineers can connect to the system from any internet terminal, subject to security arrangements, whether at work, working from home or during emergency cover out of hours. Effectively, if given sufficient privileges, an engineer could look at the network from his sofa on his smartphone or tablet on Christmas Day without needing to come in to the control room. Argonaut information

network_40 Strategy Manager - allows Traffic Managers to set up strategies to manage the limited road network using all the available information in Argonaut (traffic flow from SCOOT, Trafficmaster, ANPR and traffic counters; roadspeeds from TIH, traffic signals, ANPR, AVL Journey Times, events and weather). With unique features as 'engineer in the loop', SMS email alerts and full integration to the Journey Times Engine, Idox Transport believes it has the best Strategy Manager on the market today.  Strategy Manager information

route_40 Journey Times Engine - our unique Journey Times Engine will calculate the road speeds for ALL roads within the network by breaking them down on a road by road basis.  This then allows the Traffic Manager to draw infinitely flexible transport routes, combining all data from ANPR, AVL, HA and others and drill down to what's important, the journey time along routes and corridors. The Journey Times Engine fully integrates with the Strategy Manager and VMS Management for full control and publishing. Journey Times Engine information
