Machine vision’s transport offerings move on apace

No comments

[…] A dedicated ANPR-based travel time system called In|Time has been introduced by Rhythm Engineering. The cameras are loaded with ANPR software but then give each identified vehicle a unique ID and time stamp, which is processed by a central command console. The difference between the time stamps from different cameras provides point-to-point travel time, while the license plate data is not stored to ensure the anonymity of the information and safeguards the privacy of motorists

New Synchronized Light System in Place on Newtown Bypass (PennDOT)

No comments

A synchronized traffic light system was put into operation on the Newtown Bypass Tuesday, police confirmed, saying it will be “fine-tuned” through the end of the week.

The PennDOT project to install the light system, called InSync and created by Rhythm Engineering, will improve traffic flow by taking into account the volume of cars traveling on the bypass at one time, officials have said.

In|Sync on Route 22 gets Glowing Early Returns (PennDOT)

No comments

It has been nearly two months since traffic lights at 18 intersections along Route 22 between Murrysville and Monroeville were fitted with a radar detection system to keep traffic moving without heavy backups.

Statistics from a study done by the company that installed the system shows it is doing what it is supposed to do:

• A 20 percent reduction in westbound traffic delays during the morning rush hours.

• A 34 percent reduction in eastbound traffic delays during the afternoon rush hours.

• An overall 13 percent reduction in delays over the course of an average day.

The study compared traffic for two weeks before and after the InSync system was put in place in mid-February by the Kansas company, Rhythm Engineering.

Rhythm Engineering Working Behind the Scenes to Make Sure KC Streetcar Traffic Flows Smoothly

No comments

When the Kansas City Streetcar launches in early May, a state-of-the-art computerized traffic system will also kick in to make sure everything flows smoothly.

Reggie Chandra, founder and CEO of Rhythm in Lenexa, Kansas, said the computer system is called In|Sync.

“The System of 21 cameras along the route feed the computer information about cars, how long they have been waiting at the intersection, the streetcar location and whether or not the pedestrian button has been activated. The computer will then analyze that information and determine the best option to keep traffic moving through the intersection,” said Chandra.

The streetcar does not get an automatic green light at intersections. However, the computer program does give the streetcar a higher priority because more people are on board. Sometimes motorists will be stopped and sometimes the streetcar will have to stop. The traffic light control system is designed to keep all traffic flowing.

Sensor-based traffic lights to help expedite traffic along Route 22 (Monroeville, PA)

No comments

Route 22 commuters between Murrysville and Monroeville are set to experience some changes at traffic lights, courtesy of PennDOT.

PennDOT officials are working to make the commute more efficient by placing sensors with traffic lights that will detect when traffic builds up, and will coordinate accordingly.

“Today was the first day I’ve actually went from Murrysville to Monroeville without hitting one traffic light,” said Dennis Sheehy of Murrysville.

Crews were out Tuesday, inspecting equipment to make sure their new technology was working properly.

Savannah, Georgia using In|Sync to fast-track Pooler Parkway

No comments

“We’ve all been there. You pull up to a red light and something triggers it to change.

That’s the upside especially for you, but what about opposing traffic?

Ten then twenty maybe even fifty cars, based on the time of day, pile up waiting on the light to cycle through. Those days on Airways Avenue and Pooler Parkway may be a thing of the past.

Thursday, Savannah City Council approved a new traffic timing system for the lights along Airways Avenue including the I-95 interchange. Pooler was waiting for Savannah to pull the trigger so all of the lights on Pooler Parkway would be enhanced or “synced” and the 95 interchange is actually in Savannah’s city limits.”

Only a tiny fraction of the nation’s companies have demonstrated such remarkably consistent high growth, particularly in the difficult economic environment of the past few years. In fact, according to Eric Schurenberg, President and Editor-in-Chief for Inc. magazine, “This achievement truly puts [us] in rarefied company.”

Rhythm Engineering develops and manufactures smart, adaptive traffic signal technologies that reduce car crashes, save drivers time and money, and dramatically reduce carbon emissions and fuel usage.

In addition, Rhythm Engineering is proud to have added over 15 new positions in the past year. Historically, Rhythm Engineering ranked #456 on the 2012 Inc. 500 list and #64 on the 2011 list. Rhythm Engineering is listed by Inc. magazine as operating in the Government Services industry and is based in Lenexa, KS, with reported 2014 revenue of $17.7 million.

“As Rhythm Engineering expands its reach, we are growing rapidly and developing new, cutting edge technologies in the adaptive traffic control market, specifically to supplement our current product, In|Sync. We are going to make it even easier to synchronize traffic signals, cutting down on traffic congestion and complaints, and getting drivers to their destinations safer and faster” says Reggie Chandra, CEO of Rhythm Engineering.
