Applied Information is pleased to announce the development and alpha launch of our new connected vehicle smartphone application – Glance TravelSafely™. The app leverages cutting-edge technology to make the promise of connected vehicle systems a reality, and keep each other safer on the roads.
The future of connected vehicles is in your hands
TravelSafely brings accurate and up-to-the-second connected-vehicle communication to motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians through an app on their smartphones. The application leverages connections with Applied Information’s Glance Smart City Supervisory System™, enabling communications with school beacons, emergency vehicles, and traffic light systems.
Citizens using the TravelSafely app are seamlessly connected to your city and other motorists using the app. Through a carefully crafted set of alerts, users are made aware of potentially dangerous road conditions. Examples of how citizens will use TravelSafely include:
The Signal Phase and Timing components of TravelSafely alert drivers when traffic lights will change. Red light running alarms are generated if the system detects the vehicle will run a red light.
Drivers are alerted when they are speeding in a school zone. TravelSafely communicates with your school beacons to only provide a warning if the beacon is active.
Through direct integration with the Applied Information preemption system, motorists are alerted to where the emergency vehicles are coming from.
CYCLISTS & PEDESTRIANS
Cyclists and other Vulnerable Road Users are alerted of speeding vehicles. Additionally, motorists who are speeding near the cyclists are alerted to their presence.
Drivers are alerted when they are speeding in a work zone. TravelSafely detects if you are in an active work zone to only provide a warning if the work zone is active.
Seamlessly connecting the future of traffic safety
TravelSafely communicates data over cellular communications and/or Dedicated Short-Range Radios (DSRC). The application is delivered as a free download in partnership with cities and municipalities who utilize the Applied Information Smart City Supervisory System.
This smartphone application brings high-tech communications to users as well as making communities safer. TravelSafely’s cutting-edge technology is making the promise of connected vehicles a reality.
