Trafficware and Commsignia Partner on Traffic Intersection Connectivity

| October 31, 2017

Trafficware

Trafficware and Commsignia have begun joint implementation of V2X DSRC communication technology integrated with Trafficware’s suite of smart traffic signal technology for the growing number of Smart City and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) applications.

Marrying Commsignia’s vehicle to everything (V2X) communication software, onboard (OBU) and roadside units (RSU) with live data from traffic signals allows transportation agencies and automobile OEMs to provide enhanced motorist services.

Data provided by Trafficware’s signal controllers, wireless sensors, and central transportation management software, ATMS.now, will enhance safety, allow for emergency vehicle prioritization, bus prioritization, and provide meaningful content to motorists.

That “talking intersection” information includes providing optimal driving speed to reach the intersection green light sequence, intersection signal status, and optimal travel time from point A to point B, reducing the number of stops, idling at red lights and ultimately reducing emissions.

Trafficware CEO Jon Newhard explains the importance, “Trafficware has been the first to market with connected vehicle applications from coast-to-coast. With over 2,000 signals already connected to production vehicles, Trafficware holds clear leadership in this space.

“Our partnership with Commsignia is yet another way to broaden our scope of integration capabilities and utilize the data rich content.”

Commsignia was also selected by Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority (THEA) for the Tampa Connected Vehicle Pilot that employs vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communication technology to improve safety and traffic conditions in downtown Tampa. This was one of three sites selected for the US Department of Transportation’s Connected Vehicle Pilot Deployment Program, which seeks to spur innovation among early adopters. Commsignia expects to supply onboard units (OBUs) for approximately 1,600 cars, 10 buses and 10 trolleys.

Jozsef Kovacs, Commsignia CEO, added, “In a nascent market, it is important that customers have a positive experience with their first V2I / V2V implementations. Commsignia has established itself as a leader in V2X software, hardware and Hybrid/ADAS solutions.”
