Applied Information announced that it has joined the 5G Automotive Association (5GAA). The company’s LTE C-V2X products are deployed in over 500 cities, counties, school districts, and states in the U.S. – providing cellular connectivity to traffic signals, school zone flashing beacons, emergency vehicles, and other traffic control devices. Transportation engineers are empowered to monitor and control their traffic management networks anywhere and anytime with a smartphone or tablet with the technology.
Applied Information’s TravelSafely smartphoneapp connects drivers to the infrastructure, providing the first application of connected vehicle technology using data from multiple infrastructure sources for day-to-day use by the general public. TravelSafely also connects these vehicles to other app users such as pedestrians, cyclists, and scooter riders to provide alerts and warnings of potential crashes.
Applied Information plans to deploy next-generation 5G C-V2X to its connected infrastructure technology in 2019 – upgrading existing installations as market conditions demand.
