Provider of intelligent transportation infrastructure technology, Applied Information has announced plans to deploy C-V2X traffic infrastructure products.
The traffic technology will be deployed in the U.S. with Applied Information’s Glance Smart Cities Internet of Things (IoT) roadside unit portfolio.
The products are designed to support traffic signals, school zone safety beacons, and a variety of other roadside infrastructure deployments in the U.S.
Applied Information state that C-V2X is designed to improve automotive safety, traffic efficiency, and automated driving with its low latency communications. This technology allows vehicles to communicate directly with other vehicles, pedestrians, and roadside infrastructure without the involvement of a cellular network or network subscription.
The technology also enables emergency vehicles to get green lights in the direction of travel while safely bringing all other traffic to a halt, as well as alerting drivers to road conditions and other hazards even when there is no visibility.
‘The U.S. roadside infrastructure is estimated to include approximately one million devices, of which 350,000 are traffic signals,’ said Applied Information President, Bryan Mulligan.
‘This product upgrade means that the future of a connected infrastructure is happening now and no longer just a future promise. Roadway users and transportation system owners can benefit today from better connectivity and be fully prepared for advances in communication and for new mobility applications to come,’ concluded Mulligan.
C-V2X connected infrastructure applications of the Applied Information Glance Smart Cities Supervisory System include; traffic signals, emergency vehicle traffic signal preemption, transit bus traffic signal priority, school zone flashing beacons, changeable message signs and work zone safety.
