Matt Zinn of Eberle Design with the Eberle Glance
Eberle Design Inc. (EDI), the broad-line industry leader in traffic detection, intersection safety monitoring and access control products, has used its appearance here at the ITS World Congress to introduce Eberle Glance and RAE Glance, the first system capable of accessing real-time intersection and arterial traffic data from any traffic cabinet, regardless of the controller or central ITS system.
The company says the DA-Data Aggregator system is very useful for providers of performance measurement data, as it offers accurate real-time intersection information such as traffic counts by phase, phase status changes, cabinet alarms, and duration of signal phase by colour. The DA-100 easily interfaces with all NEMA, Type 170/20270 and ATC controllers, and pushes parsed traffic data to a cloud-based server where the data can be accessed easily by ITS system integrators and real-time traffic data providers. According to Bill Sowell, VP-Business Development for Eberle Design and Reno A&E, in April 2014, it was stated during an ITS America conference on “Big Data” in Boston, that ‘the greatest weakness of traffic management agencies and MPOs is lack of access to accurate intersection and arterial traffic data’.
“We believe the Data Aggregator, Eberle Glance and RAE Glance deliver real-time traffic signal activity and unparalleled access to intersection information capture and cloud connectivity,” said Sowell. “This capability is a wonderful addition to our iCITE (Intelligent Cabinet Interface for Transportation Equipment) product suite that our company will continue to develop to meet our customers’ needs.”
Eberle Design and Reno A&E has a live system demonstration using 10 operational intersections in Marietta, Georgia on its booth here at the ITS World Congress.
