There is a story behind every great company. There is always a compelling "Why?"

What is the "Why?" behind Rhythm Engineering?
Rhythm Engineering was founded in 2005 by a traffic engineer who worked in the public sector. Dr. Reggie Chandra was frustrated with the lack of tools and technology available to manage traffic flow. Armed with a few credit cards and a dream to synchronize every traffic signal in the U.S., he led a 3-year focused research to launch In|Sync.

Since its launch, In|Sync has been installed in 31 states and by 140 public agencies.  It is the most-deployed automated traffic signal optimization system in North America.  In|Sync has been deployed by more agencies than all other similar systems combined.

The installation of these new adaptive traffic signals means less time spent on the road and more time for commuters to spend with their families. Residents are catching more green lights than ever before and the community is thrilled about it.
