A major safety concern around transportation isn’t always just accidents on the road, it’s also the secondary incidents that occur because of that accident. When an accident occurs, causing a backup, the increased congestion upstream of the initial accident increases the chances of secondary accidents, especially as drivers traveling at a high speed approach the queue.
Klover can connect to roadside speed devices or crowd-sourced speed sources to detect both the queue and the speed of the approaching traffic. This information, combined with potential dispatch information or actual report of an incident will trigger Klover to automatically post updates to signs warning of the accident ahead, or adjust posted speeds and indicate lane closures on dynamic message signs to promote a gradual decrease in speed and use of appropriate open lanes in approach of the queue.
Trip Travel Time
Whether your data comes from an established network of speed sensors or through a third party service for crowd-sourced speeds and travel time, Klover can integrate and use the information to post travel times on dynamic message signs and to social media so travelers can make informed decisions about their routes.
The Klover adapter can be integrated into new devices or added to legacy devices so your organization can control budget while getting the most meaningful functionality.
The future of ITS is in IoT
With Klover, we are now able to perform highly optimized, standardized, secure, end-to-end communications over the public Internet without costly infrastructure such as laying fiber optic lines and maintaining private networks.Jason Westra, CTO
