Q&A with Matthew Vincent
Head of Marketing UK, Yunex Traffic.
1. Tell us about Yunex Traffic...
Yunex Traffic, formerly the Intelligent Traffic Systems business of Siemens Mobility, is a global leader in the field of intelligent traffic systems. We have the broadest end-to-end portfolio of solutions for effective adaptive traffic control and management, highway and tunnel automation, connected mobility and road user charging. By rethinking, changing and improving mobility, we want to make our roads safer, our air cleaner and our towns and cities better places. Our turnkey solutions for Clean Air Zones and Electric Vehicle charging are great examples of this. Yunex Traffic solutions, expertise and experience have made a significant difference to some of the world's largest cities as well as towns and smaller communities across all continents.
2. What are you showing at Traffex Parkex?
This year we are exhibiting at both Traffex and Parkex, with two separate Yunex Traffic stands showcasing our varied solutions. Alongside some of our more familiar and established solutions from across our broad portfolio, visitors to our stand at Traffex can expect to see the latest additions to our Plus+ signalling solution and on street portfolio as well as a number of exciting systems developments, including of course FUSION, which represents the future of adaptive traffic control. We also have two new and exciting additions to our Electric Vehicle charging portfolio making their UK debut on our Parkex stand this year.
3. What’s new or noteworthy about this /these?
Our solutions are designed with a common ethos – to address today’s very real and specific challenges, leveraging and building on existing approaches and customer investment where possible, but rethinking approaches to help future proof our customers’ assets and operational capabilities. This applies across the board - whether we are talking about a simple traffic signal pole, for example, or a new generation of intersection and pedestrian controllers or indeed an entirely new solution for real time, network wide adaptive control. Yunex Traffic is committed to sustainable operations and our solutions are developed to minimize the environmental damage and air pollution caused by road traffic and related operations, helping to make mobility greener and cities more liveable in the long-term.
4. Who are you looking forward to meeting?
A cornerstone of Yunex Traffic's culture is close collaboration with our clients – so meeting both existing and indeed future customers will of course be a highlight for us. But I think we will have something for all visitors to the Yunex Traffic stand this year, and personally it’s the diversity of visitors, their requirements and approaches to challenges that makes it so interesting. We love talking about what we do - and how we can help customers do what they need to do! So we can’t wait to welcome visitors onto the stand.
5.What are you most looking forward to?
Following the carve out of the Intelligent Traffic Systems business from Siemens Mobility in October last year, this will be our first Traffex as Yunex Traffic. And as the first Traffex exhibition since 2019, we are particularly looking forward to having the opportunity to catch up – in person again - with customers and industry colleagues, sharing stories, discussing all that’s new with Yunex Traffic and across our industry. Plus there is also the added bonus of spending some quality time with my Yunex Traffic colleagues!
