Municipalities are charged with maximizing safety, efficiency, and mobility, with providing enhanced services, and with improving citizens’ quality of life — all with limited financial and personnel resources.
Connected Signals works closely with cities as a true partner — striving to work in the city’s best interest. Our primary goal is to maximize the benefit of the city’s data by providing solutions that:
By connecting your Traffic Management Systems to Connected Signals, you also gain unique tools and insights that let you:
Unlike other connected-vehicle initiatives, our approach uses your existing infrastructure, requiring neither costly municipal infrastructure investments nor the addition of dedicated hardware to every vehicle and signalized intersection. By comparison, the USDoT’s Dedicated Short-Range Communications program will require billions of dollars (on the order of $20K/intersection) and years to implement; most of the expected benefits won’t be realized until there is very substantial coverage of both vehicles and intersections.
With Connected Signals, there is no waiting. These benefits can begin accruing in your city today!
Connected Signals offers a free hardware solution to municipalities wishing to provide their data to us. V2If is a small device, about the size of a pack of cards, that allows municipalities to securely and easily distribute real-time traffic signal data to selected third parties of their choosing. V2If uses two Ethernet ports to preserve network security. One port plugs into the switch that connects cities to their traffic lights, while the other connects to the outside world. As a municipality, you retain control of your data and its distribution.
