A QUARTET OF TECHNOLOGIES

;

  • Wireless 802.11 Sensing (on-board automotive, navigation system, wi-fi, Bluetooth™)
  • Data Aggregation (NTCIP 1206, 1209, xml, json, tmdd)
  • Data Analysis (PostgreSQL, MySQL, Oracle, MS-SQL)
  • Data Visualization (responsive, D3 graphics, Beck Topologies, OpenStreetMap, Google Maps)

BETTER THAN THE REST

  •  FCS: More accurate than floating car studies 
  • Other Sensors: More accurate than radar, inductive loops, video, magnetic sensors
  • RF Toll Tags: More commonplace than RF ID Tags
  • Cellular FCD: More accurate & detailed than Cellular Floating Car Data
  • MSRI: More accurate and quicker acquisition than magnetic signature re-identification

PROOF POSITIVE: CHEAPER & BETTER

  • Take the Test: Lower costs, try the spreadsheet
  • Low Software Costs: Open source means better quality at a lower price
  • Industrial Strength Hardware: National brands like Intel, guaranteed by Intel
  • No Red Tape: No infrastructure construction, no blocking roads, just plug it in and use it
  • Low Installation Costs: No insertion into roadway, no special precautions as with radar
  • Low Data Collection Costs: If there is an ethernet connection, just plug it in. Otherwise, backhaul on a mesh, or use GSM
  • No Recurring Costs: No cloud costs (unless you chose), no service fees, no SAAS subscription schemes
  • Reliable, High Data Quality: Good quality data at a low price.

A REAL-WORLD, USEFUL SOLUTION

  • Data for Adaptive Traffic Controllers: Instead of estimates, use the real data
  • Output for the Public: Roadrunner comes with a public-facing component, you just brand with your logo
  • Simplicity for Maintenance: No lenses to clean, no loops to replace, no pucks to remove before chip seals
  • Accurate Directional Flow: One antenna per intersection, no multiple devices for each direction
  • Longitudinal Data for Planning Large on-board storage: 120 Gigabytes

NOT JUST TRAVEL TIME, BUT DATA FOR BENCHMARKING, PLANNING, AND PERFORMANCE ASSESSMENT

  • Longitudinal Metrics: hour-to-day, day-to-week, week-to-month, and month-to-year travel times
  • Benchmarked Planning Support: Based on real, quantifiable measures, not extrapolations
  • Quickly Grasp Data. Clear, easy-to-read Beck Topological displays for easy understanding of the data.

REST-ful, FLEXIBLE, EXPANDABLE

  • RESTful web service
  • NTCIP 1206, 1209
  • TMDD (Traffic Management Data Dictionary)
