By Business Wire News
Eberle Design Inc. (EDI), the global leader in engineering and manufacturing of traffic control cabinet peripherals and intersection safety monitoring electronics, and The Traffic Group, Inc. (TTG) – one of the nation’s leading traffic engineering and transportation planning firms – signed an MOU creating a strategic alliance to provide a suite of EDI privately-labeled custom products to TTG’s customers in the traffic data collection and planning market sector. The MOU was announced by both firms upon on the opening of the 26th Annual Meeting of ITS America.
“We are pleased to have an opportunity to work with TTG to pursue traffic data collection and traffic planning projects that we would not normally see in our normal intersection-based traffic control market. EDI will customize our iCITE®, (Intelligent Cabinet Interface to Traffic Equipment), traffic data collection and reporting products, to meet the specific market requirements of TTG,” said Bill Russell, President and CEO of Eberle Design Inc.
“The Traffic Group is very excited to have access to EDI’s leading-edge data collection devices, and we look forward in working cooperatively with EDI’s established network of local traffic control equipment dealers to provide the very best real-time traffic data collection services to TTG customers,” said Wes Guckert, PTP, and President of The Traffic Group. “TTG will utilize EDI products to aggregate real-time traffic data, using a variety of traffic sensor technologies, incorporating the data into a turn-key TTG traffic data collection solution,” said Wes Guckert.
“The need for accurate, real-time traffic data from intersections and arterials has never been greater, as required by many provisions of the five-year U.S. legislation, the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST), to improve the Nation’s surface transportation infrastructure, roads, bridges, transit systems and rail transportation network,” said Bill Russell.
