Traffic Technology Services (TTS) and Siemens USA are to partner on providing services for connected and autonomous vehicle operations near signalised intersections, with the aim of providing automotive, truck, transit OEMs, after-market device manufacturers and navigation service providers with greater access to data for connected vehicle applications.
Beginning this month, select Siemens TACTICS ATMS systems, an advanced traffic control hardware and software platform, will supply traffic signal data to TTS cloud-based services to support connected vehicle applications.
Siemens TACTICS platform is harnessing real-time traffic data which is used in the TTS cloud-based Personal Signal Assistant information service to provide a predicted and current intersection signal status. Every second at every intersection, TTS predicts the signal operations using its patented technology and these predictions and intersection layouts are then provided as data used for autonomous and connected vehicle applications. Siemens traffic data and analytics software enables an effective and secure solution from data capturing to actionable, real-time and measured information processing.
The joint service will be implemented initially in the City of Aurora (Denver area), City of Fargo, City of Fremont (San Francisco area), and East Whiteland and Upper Merion Townships (Philadelphia area).
