Applied Information, Inc. (AI), the leading provider of intelligent transportation infrastructure technology, announced today it has expanded its partnership with Traffic Control Corporation (TCC) to distribute traffic signal preemption and priority products in the Midwestern US.
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 GPS technology and multiple diverse, redundant communication methods including Cellular Vehicle to Everything (C-V2X Network), line of sight radio and optical technology. In addition to the extended range of C-V2X Network to clear multiple intersections, the cellular connectivity enables emergency vehicles to alert motorists that a first responder is nearby via a smartphone app, Waze, and Haas Alert.
“Our partnership with Applied Information enables us to provide first responders across the Midwest with the industry-leading technology,” said John S. Lizzadro, Jr., President of Traffic Control Corporation. “Providing faster response times with the AI technology will save lives and will improve safety for our first responders and the motoring public.”
The partnership covers the states of North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, Michigan and most of Missouri.
“TCC is an industry leader and an exceptional partner,”,” said Bryan Mulligan, President of Applied Information. “We look forward to an ever-expanding relationship and an exciting future of growth.”
