Traffic Technology Services and TransCore to Provide V2I Applications
PORTLAND, OR. – Traffic Technology Services, Inc. (TTS) and TransCore have taken a step closer in bringing traffic signal information into the vehicle.
TransCore will integrate its TransSuite® advanced traffic management systems (ATMS) software into TTS’ Personal Signal Assistant to help motorists minimize the time spent at red lights. TransSuite’s ATMS map interface provides real-time traffic data, which is used by TTS to predict signal switch times. This data is then applied by OEM’s and others to synchronize access through traffic signals.
TTS showcased the Personal Signal Assistant product, supporting Audi’s traffic light online info service, at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show and won the Best Auto Tech Award by The Verge. TTS is now deploying the service nationwide in select metro areas, often overlapping with agencies utilizing the TransSuite solution.
“The hardware, software, and communication technologies have reached critical maturity points,” said Dr. Jingtao Ma, TTS Chief Technology Officer. “The TTS partnership with TransCore allows for quicker access to the infrastructure side and therefore bring V2I applications such as eco-approach and departure to daily commutes much sooner.”
