Integrated Data Is Reliable Data
In Part 2 of our series on the critical advantages of data integration, we're discussing our proprietary virtual sensors, which are 94.4% accurate and cost 1/300th as much as hardware detectors. As a hardware free technology, we can direct a virtual sensor to collect data from any point on a roadway, or across the entire roadway itself.

Reflecting on Ida: How AI Can Enable Rapid, Safe Evacuations
Experts now predict that climate change is causing hurricanes to become stronger, both in their winds speeds and rainfall. Addressing this terrifying possibility will require a complex, multifaceted approach including investment in levee expansion, fortification of storm shelters, and increasing collaboration between national, state, and local officials. However, better traffic management can unquestionably be part of how we confront these new realities.

Clear Roads, Green Lights, Can't Lose: Our Origin Story
This our origin story: how we decided to build a technology that could do just that, how we put it on a major city roadway and reduced travel times, how we showed that we could give people not just one day but up to two and a half days back each year.
