iATL to be the leading center for connected vehicle traffic infrastructure technology development
ALPHARETTA, GA (September 12, 2019) – – Applied Information, Inc., the leading provider of intelligent transportation infrastructure technology, today announced the creation of the Infrastructure-Automotive Technology Laboratory (iATL). The iATL™ will be located at Pope & Land’s Northwinds Summit development in Alpharetta. The lab is scheduled to open January 10, 2020.
The iATL is the first facility in the world where automakers and transportation infrastructure manufacturers will be able to imagine, create and test technology and applications for connected vehicles to communicate with traffic signals and other smart roadside traffic control equipment.
“The collaborative nature of the iATL will enable the automobile, communications and transportation infrastructure industries to rapidly develop and deploy connected vehicle technologies and applications in a real-world setting,” said Bryan Mulligan, President of Applied Information, Inc. “The iATL is the private sector leading the way in developing new transportation technology that will save lives, improve traffic, drive commerce and help the environment.”
The lab is strategically located amid the first large-scale deployment of connected vehicle infrastructure technology using all forms of communications simultaneously – 4G LTE, Cellular Vehicle to Everything (C-V2X), Dedicated Short Range Radio (DSRC) and 900 MHz radio.
“Pope & Land is excited to be a part of, and support, this important development in the future of transportation technology and the benefits it will bring to the world of mobility,” said Kerry Armstrong, Managing Director and Development Partner at Pope & Land. “The iATL reinforces that Georgia is a global leader in technology and transportation and Northwinds Summit is at the center of it all.”
In addition to the iATL facility, Applied Information’s headquarters and main manufacturing facility is in Gwinnett County, GA. The company has offices in Dallas and Houston, TX, Los Angeles, CA, Albany, NY and Portland, OR.
