Connected Vehicle Interface Provides Intelligent Alerts

Traffic & Parking Control Company, Inc. (TAPCO) unveils its new Connected Vehicle Interface, an enhancement option that will upgrade new and existing AC and solar-powered TAPCO Intelligent Warning Systems to integrate with connected vehicle ready infrastructure. The Connected Vehicle Interface communicates with Smart City Road Side Units (RSUs) to relay Intelligent Warning System activation data to connected vehicles via Dedicated Short-Range Communication, 4G or 5G networks, providing drivers with instant in-vehicle alerts.

 

The Connected Vehicle Interface transfers system data through integration with local Advanced Traffic Management Systems providing officials with activation trends, status information and actionable insight into each connected system. Jon Zick, Director of Engineering and Marketing at TAPCO expounds, “As connected vehicles and smart city infrastructure continue to evolve, we decided now was the right time to ensure all TAPCO Intelligent Warning Systems have the capability to be connected vehicle ready. The Connected Vehicle Interface allows TAPCO to tap into existing RSUs to enhance driver responsiveness to our Intelligent Warning Systems. This innovation signals to our customers that we're dedicated to advancing our technology in step with the needs of smart city and connected infrastructure.”
