HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Trafficware CEO Jon Newhard and Trafficware CTO Darren Beyer will present at this year’s Smart Cities Connect conference that will address the future of traffic management in sessions discussing “Smart City Solutions: Mobility” and “Data and the City: Unlocking Big Benefits.”
The 2017 Smart Cities Connect Conference & Expo will be held at the Austin Convention Center on June 25-28, 2017, and is co-located with the US Ignite Application Summit that convenes 200+ global city leaders to prospect and partner with innovative technology and service providers.
The event is hosted by the City of Austin, one of the “Top Ten Innovative Smart Cities to Watch” that uses technology to better connect communities, improve citizen services, and find more intelligent ways to manage resources.
CEO Jon Newhard explains, “Intelligent transportation is critical to supporting the infrastructure required to manage mobility applications for Smart Cities. The ‘internet of things’ or IoT is impacting transportation, and Trafficware is at the vanguard of this technological change with over 1,800 Connected Signals deployed around the United States.”
“Our technology collects and streams the essential data communications between the intersection and the car,” continued CTO Darren Beyer. “By using our central transportation management system ATMS.now, its Connected Vehicle module, and our Pod wireless detection system, a community can be quickly equipped for smart city transportation applications. Trafficware takes pride in being the only traffic management company capable of delivering Connected Vehicle solutions to production vehicles today.
“Most importantly, these applications improve public safety, traffic efficiency and the environment.”
*** Session Descriptions ***
City Solutions: Mobility -- World class technology companies present smart solutions and services to a panel of global city officials. Each presenting company will have the opportunity to present data, client testimonials and closing arguments for why they are best-in-class within their market segment. City officials will have the opportunity to lead a short Q&A session with each presenting company. This educational session is organized for both city officials, technology providers and all delegates interested in smart IoT technology vertical market solutions and services.
Data and the City: Unlocking Big Benefits -- IoT is generating massive volumes of structured and unstructured data, and an increasing share of this data is being deployed on cloud services. While innovations in storage and managed services have sped up the capture process, accessing and understanding the data itself still pose a significant last-mile challenge. As a result, demand is growing for analytical tools that seamlessly connect to and combine a wide variety of cloud-hosted data sources. Such tools enable cities to explore and visualize any type of data stored anywhere, helping them discover hidden opportunity in their IoT investment.
