Vehicle-to-everything (V2X) technology provider Commsignia is integrating its technology with Trafficware’s suite of smart traffic signal technology for the growing number of smart cities and vehicle-to-infrastructure applications.
Both organisations are demonstrating their technology at ITS World Congress, the intelligent transportation event taking place in Montreal, Canada (31 October-2 November).
Marrying Commsignia’s vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communication software, onboard (OBU) and roadside units (RSU) with live data from traffic signals will allow 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 aims to enhance safety, allow for emergency vehicle prioritisation, bus prioritisation, and provide meaningful content to motorists.
This “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 has more than 2,000 signals already connected to production vehicles and has been the first to market with connected vehicle applications from coast-to-coast. “Our partnership with Commsignia is yet another way to broaden our scope of integration capabilities and utilise the data rich content,” said Trafficware CEO, Jon Newhard.
Commsignia has also been selected by the 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 Programme, 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.
Jozef Kovacs, Commsignia CEO, said: “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.
“Trafficware has shown significant leadership in workable real-world implementations of vehicle-to-infrastructure technology, so it is a natural step for Commsignia and Trafficware to work together. Agencies and road users will benefit from our combined solutions that are delivering real material advancements to improving road safety and efficiency.”
Recently, Frost & Sullivan recognised Commsignia with its 2017 European Customer Value Leadership Award for end-to-end vehicle-to-everything solutions.
