Congress delegates wanting to view live real-time traffic signal data from Manhattan, New York City, should make their way to Connected Signals
’ booth in the exhibition hall.
The company, which provides real-time, predictive, traffic signal information for connected vehicles and other applications, recently added coverage for traffic signals in Manhattan to its portfolio. According to the company, no other aggregator of real-time traffic signal
data currently has significant coverage for any of the top 10 US cities while it now has data for three such locations: New York City, Phoenix and San José.
Perhaps of more immediate interest to World Congress visitors is the live data from Montreal which is part of a portfolio that al includes Québec; Salt Lake City, Las Vegas, Portland and Oregon in the
US, Melbourne in Australia and Christchurch in New Zealand.
Looking further ahead, the company has also developed an advanced system for visual detection of traffic signals for connected and autonomous vehicles. Designed to work on its own or in conjunction
with the company’s real-time, predictive, traffic-signal data streaming services, the 4K,
30 frames per second (FPS) video-based system recognises traffic signals in real time, using standard CPUs.
Signals can be detected with 98% accuracy under a wide range of conditions, including daylight, night, rain, clouds and glare without the system knowing the signal’s location in advance. The frame rate also enables recognition of flashing signals and there will be a video demonstration at the booth.
