Sensys Networks’ US supply chain qualifies for federal funding that favours key traffic safety applications. The company is here in Dallas to highlight how its products provide results around the world and point out that in the US, funding is set aside specifically to implement traffic safety solutions. The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act of 2021 provides an additional $32.5bn dedicated to traffic safety over five years.
Examples of how municipalities are improving safety with Sensys traffic detection include Mayetta, Kansas, where vehicles are detected on side streets by FlexMag wireless sensors at the stop bar to trigger flashing crossing signs upstream of the intersection, warning approaching vehicles. Virginia uses automated incident detection AI to alert operators, law enforcement and drivers when vehicles have crossed barriers going the wrong way on express lanes. Meanwhile, the UK employs real-time speed data from FlexMag wireless sensors on managed motorways to set dynamic speed limits to reduce injury accidents by 13%: FlexMag also powers speed enforcement systems on roadways in Saudi Arabia.
In Victoria, Australia ramp queue flushing is used to actively clear backups from highways and avoid high-speed rear-end collisions. Automated incident detection is also used on New York State bridges to detect crashes within seconds and scramble emergency response personnel to avoid secondary crashes and provide medical help.
