Sage Automation says the latest Addinsight hardware suite Omnia produces 300% more unique detections than traditional Bluetooth scanners.
Omnia can detect undiscoverable Bluetooth devices such as smartphones that cannot be detected by traditional Bluetooth scanners, says Sage, giving you exceptional data resolution. Omnia is being trialled for pedestrian detection to enable road authorities to better plan public transport services based on demand.
Addinsight has rapidly advanced since it was first created by a South Australia state road authority, the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure.
Collaboration with Sage Automation has seen the software and hardware rolled out in every state of Australia and on every arterial network. It brings better services to communities through its school crossings system and passenger detection trial.
Meanwhile, in Australia, the smart transit hub Matilda will debut in a trial of an autonomous shuttle and shuttle-stop service. Matilda will join Local Motor’s self-driving shuttle Olli to transport up to 10 passengers at a time along 1km stretch of bike path in the beachside suburb of Glenelg in the South Australian state capital Adelaide.
Self-driving shuttle Olli and transport hub Matilda talk to each other and the internet to give passengers a completely autonomous, smart transport service.
Using leading edge technologies such as IBM Watson and KinTrans systems, Matilda autonomously communicates to passengers with route information, Olli’s real-time arrival status and other recommendations. She is wheelchair accessible, communicates to the vision impaired and hearing impaired, and can automatically extend a bridge plate to a vehicle for wheelchair or pram access.
