Applied Information Joins 5G Automotive Association as the Leading U.S. C-V2X Infrastructure Technology Provider

Infrastructure, Drivers, and Pedestrians Connect to Each Other with
TravelSafely™ Smartphone App

ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/CV2X?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#CV2Xlt;/agt;–Applied
Information, Inc.
, the leading provider of intelligent
transportation infrastructure technology, announced today that it has
joined the 5G
Automotive Association
(5GAA) – an organization made up of more than 100
automotive, technology, and telecommunications companies
working
together to develop cellular vehicle-to-everything solutions (C-V2X) for
mobility and transportation services.

“The 5GAA is leading the private sector effort that is necessary to make
the many safety benefits of connected vehicles a reality, and we are
pleased to be a part of, and support, that activity,” said Bryan
Mulligan, President of Applied Information. “It is entirely appropriate
for the private sector to develop and drive adoption of this technology
and to make it available through existing mobile networks for vehicles,
pedestrians, and the nation’s infrastructure.”

Applied Information’s LTE C-V2X products are deployed in over 500
cities, counties, school districts, and states in the U.S. – providing
cellular connectivity to traffic signals, school zone flashing beacons,
emergency vehicles, and other traffic control devices. Transportation
engineers are empowered to monitor and control their traffic management
networks anywhere and anytime with a smartphone or tablet with the
technology.

Applied Information’s TravelSafely™ smartphone app connects drivers to
the infrastructure, providing the first application of connected vehicle
technology using data from multiple infrastructure sources for
day-to-day use by the general public. TravelSafely also connects these
vehicles to other app users such as pedestrians, cyclists, and scooter
riders to provide alerts and warnings of potential crashes.

Applied Information plans to deploy next-generation 5G C-V2X to its
connected infrastructure technology in 2019 – upgrading existing
installations as market conditions demand.
