Sensys Networks and Verizon will formally launch the Intelligent Traffic Management (ITM) service, a new IoT platform for smart cities, at their joint booth at ITS America 2016 in San Jose. This follows on the recent partnership announced late last year which was covered in ITS International: Click here.
Verizon’s ITM service, powered by Sensys Networks, is a traffic data reporting and analytics suite for traveller information, planning, before/after performance measures, and MAP-21 reporting, among other uses. The platform automates ongoing data collection for major corridors on a 24x7 basis, including travel times, system counts, turn movements and more.
The ITM service aims to curtail the more than three billion gallons of fuel wasted annually and seven billion extra hours of drive time due to traffic congestion.
Also notable about this new service, which will be demonstrated on the Sensys Networks/Verizon booth, is the way municipalities receive valuable traffic information from their roads. Because the hardware installation, maintenance and backhaul communications are managed by Verizon, traffic visionaries can focus more on making data-driven decisions.
