Partnership to Distribute Industry-Leading AI Video Analytics to Further Accelerate Road Safety and Smart Infrastructure

| March 29, 2021

Control Technologies Group’s Traffic Detection and Smart Intersection offerings will pair with DERQ platform

DERQ, an MIT-spin-off with an award-winning platform powered by patented AI and predictive analytics, is partnering with Control Technologies Group (CT Group), one of USA’s largest distributors of traffic signal control and intelligent transportation systems (ITS) equipment for a multi-year distribution agreement. CT Group will be distributing DERQ’s leading AI video analytics solutions for connected roads and vehicles as well as traffic and safety insights across its wide network in the US.   

The partnership ultimately brings together the forward-thinking innovators at DERQ with the established veterans in the traffic signal industry at CT Group. The demand for video analytics solutions with comprehensive offerings including safety analytics, traffic analytics and connected vehicle (CV) applications is greater than ever. Combining DERQ’s solutions with CT Group’s technology offering will further build a unique integrated offering including traffic signal control, ITS equipment, road sensors, and software applications.  

“This partnership enables us to leverage CT Group’s strong sales network and expertise to scale our AI solutions across the country and help improve safety and mobility for all road users including autonomous vehicles,” says Dr. Georges Aoude, CEO and Co-Founder of DERQ. “We’re also excited about working with CT Group’s complementary portfolio of solutions to achieve a comprehensive and unique market offering.”  

DERQ’s Real-Time Perception and Connectivity AI Platform aggregates data from different sources such as traffic sensors, signal controllers and connected infrastructure. It then uses AI to extract real-time intelligence from the data, enabling cutting-edge CAV applications as well as actionable Safety and Traffic Insights. DERQ’s Platform is hardware agnostic, flexible and scalable, providing immediate value to both customers with existing sensor deployments and those seeking to deploy innovative smart mobility ecosystems.  

The CT Group is looking to expand its footprint in the smart intersection and CV arena and is excited about the standalone opportunities of the DERQ solutions as well as the capability to merge the DERQ software and capabilities with products they currently distribute. The multi-year agreement provides rights of representation in 26 states across the US with exclusivity in the Southeast and Northwest where the CT Group has exemplary representation and over 40 years of Traffic Signal and ITS experience.   

“The CT Group is excited about the market opportunities the new agreement with DERQ will facilitate,” says Mike Day, President of CT Group. “The partnership will promote interoperability of the DERQ platform with our existing Traffic Detection and Smart Intersection offerings in addition to the unique and compelling standalone capabilities. We look forward to a long and successful partnership.”
