Applied Information, Inc. (AI), the leading provider of intelligent transportation infrastructure technology, announced today a partnership with Advanced Traffic Products (ATP) to distribute traffic signal preemption and priority products in the Northwest.
Applications for the technology include emergency vehicle preemption for fire, police and ambulance services and signal priority for transit buses, school buses, snowplows, and more. The Applied Information preemption and priority solution utilizes multiple diverse, redundant communication methods including optical, line of sight radio, and Cellular Vehicle to Everything (C-V2X Network). This C-V2X connectivity enables emergency vehicles to alert motorists that a first responder is nearby via a smartphone app, Waze, and Haas Alert.
“Applied Information is the right partner at the right time to help our customers improve performance and safety when responding to an emergency, said Edie Smith, President of ATP. “In addition to better response times, emergency vehicles will be able to communicate with connected vehicles and smartphone apps to help clear the way.”
ATP, based in Everett, WA, will represent Applied Information’s preemption solutions in the states of Washington, Oregon, Montana, Idaho, Alaska, Utah, Wyoming, Colorado, Arizona, Nevada, and Northern California.
“ATP is the undisputed leader in emergency vehicle preemption and transit signal priority in the Northwestern states,” said Bryan Mulligan, President of Applied Information. “We are excited to welcome them into the Applied Information family of partners.”
