Wireless technology is not only transforming our day-to-day lives from the palm of our hands, but also the world around us as a key component of connected vehicle technologies that can be used to optimize traffic patterns, improve pedestrian and traffic safety, and continue to help evolve the usage of autonomous vehicles.

Open-source software is a key component in allowing a variety of solutions to work together seamlessly, often wirelessly. The integration has resulted in successful pilot programs that include Vehicle-to-Infrastructure and Vehicle-to-Vehicle solutions on various applications in a variety of city environments and will be a key component in Columbus, Ohio where a “Smart City” is currently being implemented.

This webinar will discuss how an open platform software works and can contribute to the evolution of connected vehicle programs, including enabling connected vehicles to talk to traffic management systems, dynamic message signs, traffic signal controllers, and other ITS devices, as well as support connected vehicles in both roadside and in-vehicle environments.

Over a quarter century after ADA changed the transportation industry by guaranteeing passengers with disabilities access to public transportation, transportation providers are still struggling to safely secure many mobility devices as large power-chairs and scooters become increasingly popular. Furthermore, transportation providers face growing pressure to find solutions for rising liability, timely service,and dramatic increases in ADA ridership in an evolving industry. As these challenges mount, recent advancements in securement equipment, wheelchairs, and standards have the long term potential to alleviate these securement difficulties for both fixed-route and on-demand services. 

This presentation will explore developing ridership and securement dilemmas facing transit providers, and examine how emerging technologies and recent regulatory changes are addressing the previous short comings of primitive securement applications. We invite attendees to engage in a thought-provoking discussion about the challenges they are facing and what the changes discussed mean for the industry and the future of ADA transportation.

Are you living or working in a Vision Zero City? We are living in a safety society where emerging technologies help us live and work more effectively and efficiently. This includes striving for zero traffic fatalities. Advances in collision avoidance systems have equipped cars with forward collision warning, speed alert and pedestrian detection technology. In a few years, every car on the road will have these safety technologies in use, resulting in safer roads for vehicles and vulnerable road users (VRUs) including pedestrians and cyclists. What about large vehicles? What about your bus fleet and the ability to do the same?

Join us as we take an in-depth look into the driving environment of large transit buses. Many of us cannot appreciate the complexities that come with operating a 40’ or larger vehicle and maneuvering around VRUs in a busy urban environment. These complexities multiply when the vehicle is turning; blind zones widen and the probability of collisions increase.  These complexities multiply further when VRU distraction due to phones, tablets, and other devices are at an all-time high, and trending upward yet.

This is where the evolution of technology comes into play. The same collision avoidance technology that has proven to work in cars has been developed to adapt to larger vehicles. With multiple smart vision sensors placed strategically around the bus, the Mobileye Shield+ system covers blind zones in the front and sides of the bus where a driver has limited visibility. Tune in and learn how this smart technology can help you gather data and help identify “hot spots” on a bus route or location. To fix a problem, it must first be identified… See how Shield+ can help you do both.
