LYT announced a new partnership with Cradlepoint, as the company will leverage Cradlepoint’s full suite of in-vehicle routers to enable Transit Signal Priority (TSP) and Emergency Vehicle Preemption (EVP) solutions for fleets across the U.S.
LYT’s TSP and EVP solutions (LYT.transit and LYT.emergency) produce a green light for transit or emergency vehicles. These technologies harness the power of a single-edge device installed in Traffic Management Centers that enable transit and emergency vehicles to speak directly to networked traffic signals in cities through the LYT cloud platform. These emergency preemption solutions will now leverage the GPS network and location-tracking capabilities provided by Cradlepoint.
“We’re excited to partner with Cradlepoint and we look forward to strengthening our industry-leading intelligent traffic solutions that benefit transit riders as well as emergency first responders,” said Tim Menard, CEO/founder of LYT. “With the combination of LYT’s innovative technology and Cradlepoint’s leadership in 5G GPS networking, emergency vehicles can improve their response times to accidents and incidents to save more lives, and the schedule reliability of transit vehicles will continue to improve.”
Cradlepoint’s cellular routers connect with SD-WAN intelligence to optimize network traffic across carrier LTE or 5G links.
“The combined solution of Cradlepoint’s proven routers and LYT provides a best-in-class cloud-based approach to transit priority and emergency preemption solutions,” said John Nye, VP of Technology Alliance Partnerships, Cradlepoint. “Today’s leading transit and first responder networking technologies require solutions that are reliable, easy to implement, and use offering robust data and reporting capabilities for optimum results.”
