US travel time specialist TrafficCast International and Japan’s advanced automotive technology supplier Denso have signed a joint development agreement to make better use of the amount of useful data coming off connected vehicles.

Announced at the World Congress, the agreement will combine TrafficCast’s Bluetooth signal detection with Denso’s dedicated short-range communications (DSRC) device that is critical for the vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communications required for connected and autonomous vehicles.

The agreement will combine TrafficCast’s BlueTOAD Spectra roadside unit (RSU) 2.4GHz system with Denso’s DSRC 5.9GHz technology.

“This collaboration allows us to work together on the vehicle and data analytics side to innovate newer services – ones which we don’t even know exist yet – where the additional information gathered by a much richer data set from DSRC would enhance any number of transportation and efficiency measures,” explained Denso International America’s vice-president, North America research and development, Roger Berg.

“For us, this is a natural progression to include connected vehicle technology in our future path for our product,” said TrafficCast’s director, business development, Frank Provenzano.

“We collect data from vehicles for traffic engineers; DoTs are primarily our customers.  We give Denso that data analytics component. We bring the infrastructure the vehicle communicates with and we help them process some of that data.

“It’s really a component of the Internet of Things, where all this information is being exchanged.”

Drivers, traffic engineers and vehicle makers will benefit from different aspects of the data that will be downloaded from connected vehicles as they pass TrafficCast’s RSUs.

The new system is in beta test at present, with products expected to be shipped from Q2 2018, added Provenzano.
