Danish-German partnership to disseminate Smart City solution and help ease traffic


BLIP Systems has appointed Traffic Data Systems as their value added re-seller to take on the market in German-speaking countries.

In Germany, where more and more cars fill up already congested roads, the need for solutions to understand and ease the traffic is crucial. With new and intelligent traffic solutions, such as Bluetooth and WiFi monitoring, collecting vital data to evaluate and understand traffic flow has become much easier, and is an innovative solution to complement traditional technologies. The strategic partnership between Danish information technology company BLIP Systems and German traffic monitoring expert Traffic Data Systems has been announced with the objective of implementing the technology on German roads and in German cities.

Traffic Data Systems is now offering BlipTrack: a non-intrusive solution that gathers, analyses and visualizes real-time data. BlipTrack sensors collect data from passing vehicles with Bluetooth and WiFi-enabled devices and calculates journey times and traffic flow. The solution is also able to analyse data from third-party data sources such as ANPR cameras, radar, loops and more. Being able to gather and process data from multiple systems, across multi-modal transport networks, in one central server, provides decision makers a unique tool to evaluate, understand and optimize traffic flows, and make strategic decisions to improve infrastructure utilization and traveller experience.

“Traffic Data Systems cooperation with BLIP Systems is a meaningful and strategic partnership to provide a wide range of various data traffic acquisition systems to our customers. Besides our cutting edge WIM DSP weigh in motion systems as well as the loop based TMCS/TMCS-U counters/classifiers, the BlipTrack solution closes a gap with their non-invasive sensors to measure travel times and speeds. Blip Systems has many successful installations all over the world and we are confident that the solution also will prove its worth here in Germany,” says Traffic Data Systems Chief Executive Manager Florian Weiss.

“We see a huge potential for the BlipTrack solution in the German-speaking market and together with Traffic Data Systems, we can provide competitive and customized ITS solutions to road authorities. The superior expertise and technical know-how that Traffic Data Systems has in the field of ITS solutions, truly complements our solution. We look forward to take on new territories and are confident that BlipTrack will provide added value to German-speaking customers,” says BLIP Systems Sales Director Preben Andersen.

Blip Systems and Traffic Data Systems will work closely together to collect real-time data in urban and inter-urban traffic. The measured route-based journey times and speeds will help stakeholders to better evaluate and optimize the road infrastructure, and warn motorists about congestion.
