Transportation & Traffic

Keeping smart cities moving to continuous efficiency gains

As cities grow, so does their need to optimize the traffic flowing through them.

That is why FreeWave has added edge computing intelligence to our wireless solutions, giving transportation planning bodies a smarter way to get travelers where they’re going – quickly and in the most cost-effective manner possible.

Give Your Smart City a Way to Intelligently Address Growth

Traffic and transportation management is one of the biggest infrastructure challenges in cities today. By combining sensor data capture, edge data processing, and ruggedized wireless communications, FreeWave delivers an IQ-infused integrated platform on which to reliably run the smart traffic solutions needed to optimize the flow of vehicles and people throughout a city in a smart, automated manner.

We have combined our outdoor-optimized wireless solutions with edge computing capabilities, allowing cities to connect highly distributed smart sensors used for traffic lights, signaling, parking, and more, and to automate their operation to react to real-time changes in traffic conditions, weather, time, and more.

What’s Enabled

With FreeWave’s M2M wireless and edge computing solutions, cities can rapidly deploy an IIoT-enabled sensor network that powers smart transportation applications, including but not limited to:

smart traffic signal control

Smart Traffic Signal Control

Reduce travel time for drivers by as much as 25% with adaptive traffic light systems that self-optimize based on real-time traffic flows.

alleviate traffic bottlenecks

Traffic Decision Support

Collect all forms of high-fidelity traffic information generated by your smart sensors to facilitate real-time traffic monitoring and control as well as the prediction of future traffic trends.

smart parking

Smart Parking

Deploy IIoT-based sensors in parking lots that provide real-time information on empty spots to approaching cars and enable as much as a double-digit percentage reduction in parking issues per year.

video surveillance emergency response

CCTV & Video Surveillance

Monitor activity on public transportation routes for real-time situational awareness that improves the safety and security of all citizens.

predictive maintenance traffic

Predictive Maintenance

Proactively track vehicle health and road conditions, then automate maintenance scheduling for 10 to 15% efficiency gains.

fleet optimization

Fleet Optimization

Auto-route fleets of buses and other public transportation vehicles around back-ups based on real-time traffic updates, reducing miles driven by up to 5-10%.
