Rhythm Engineering's most talked about contribution to the transportation industry is InSync. Designed as an artificial-intelligence based Next Generation Adaptive Traffic Signal System from Rhythm Engineering significantly reduces stops and delays on arterial streets.

InSync has proven itself to be the most effective adaptive system in the market. The system is very modular, inexpensive and simple to deploy and maintain. There was one obstacle the company faced in the Midwest during the deployment and use of the cameras -- freezing rain. The resulting ice accumulated to a thickness of several centimeters thick coating the entire enclosure. Because the enclosure tilted down towards the intersection, icicles formed in front of the cameras disallowing the system to work properly and specifically at a critical time when traffic flow optimization and incident detection was of the utmost importance.

These problems have been solved with Videotec HOV housings. The HOV camera enclosure is made from die-cast aluminum with an ABS sunshield. A specific sunshield with rain-blocker has been specifically re-engineered to discourage the formation of icicles and redirect rainwater away from the front of the camera. In addition, these enclosures have been retrofitted with a double internal heater near the front to unfreeze residual ice. Furthermore, the enclosure is user friendly thanks to being able to open the enclosure from its side. This grants the installer full access to the camera and lens for either the first installation or any following services.
