CLR Analytics at NaTMEC 2018

June 14, 2018

CLR Analytics, Inc. exhibited its Inductive Loop Signature (ILS) Technology at the National Travel Monitoring Exposition and Conference (NaTMEC) held in Irvine CA, June 10-13, 2018. The event was very successful and attracted a variety of transportation professionals from all over the US and other countries. There were 36 exhibitors including CLR Analytics.

CLR presented the ILS technology and the VSign vehicle classification and tracking AI system that enables the use of a single loop for vehicle classification, speed measurement, and vehicle tracking among counting stations, classification sites sand WIM stations. Our technology was one of the attractions for many DOT Transportation Data Managers and other officials because it provides a quick, easy and cost-effective solution to significantly improve traffic data quality for informed decisions. A lot of practitioners and researchers stopped by the booth to learn more about the technology. DOT officials from states such as Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Minnesota, North Carolina, Utah, Virginia, and Washington showed their keen interest. The ability of the technology to detect vehicles at low speed and high-volume conditions and classify them without the need of piezoelectric sensors made CLR standout at the conference. Since the technology is compatible with existing standards and data collection systems, many of them scheduled a demo for their state.

At the closing ceremony, District 12 Deputy District Director of Maintenance and Operations, Ms. Dina El-Tawansy introduced our ILS technology that uses single loops to provide a lot more information about vehicles such as speed, class, etc., not just the counts, as compared to the conventional loops. She described it as an exciting technology and it has been deployed in many districts of California, including District 12. After Dina’s talk, Mr. Tianjia Tang, the chief of Travel Monitoring and Surveys Division, FHWA Office of Information and Policy, summarized various innovations at the conference. He identified the ILS technology as one of the most promising technologies that will help the current traffic data collection. He also encouraged different states to try and make use of the advantages and opportunities the ILS technology presents.

NaTMEC is a biennial conference aimed to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of multimodal traffic monitoring programs covering motorized, bicyclist, and pedestrian movements to enhance data-driven decisions in areas of performance management, planning and design, asset management, safety, and program administration.

USDOT SBIR Award on Smart Onboard Passenger Information System (Mar 20, 2017)

(March 20, 2017)

CLR Analytics Inc is recommended for a new Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) phase I award, titled, “TrainAid: A Smart Onboard Railroad Passenger Information and Entertainment System”. This is the 8th USDOT SBIR award CLR received since 2010. In this project, CLR collaborates with TransSight, LLC, a national leader in technology development, integration, and program management.

In this project, we propose to develop a Smart Onboard Passenger Information and Entertainment System, TrainAid, to deliver real-time travel information and provide value-added information and entertainment services to railroad passengers through a smartphone application. The TrainAid smartphone application will provide quality onboard passenger information, obtained from various existing data sources, through audio, visual, and vibrotactile alerts to ensure Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance. TrainAid will also have the potential to include more attractive services, such as customized traveler information and alerts, a two-way communication platform between passengers and passengers/train conductors, and a platform for promoting multimodal transportation services and entertainment options.

Successful Ground-Truth Data Collection using HD Cameras (Dec 13, 2016)

(12/13/2016)

CLR Analytics Inc. successfully performed a field data collection for the SBIR Phase II project titled “Tracking of heavy vehicles for estimating heavy load distribution across the highway system and Weigh-In-Motion Calibration” on 12/13/2016. The field data collection involved the collection of high-resolution video data and vehicle signature and WIM data from 10 counting stations and 7 WIM stations. The data collected from the field will be used to build knowledge base for truck vehicle classification and refine truck tracking algorithms, which are the core algorithms for the commercial vehicle tracking system (CVTS). CVTS can be used to monitor WIM and counting stations in real-time, keep track trucks among WIM stations for WIM calibration and thus provide more accurate weight data at WIM stations, and provide weight data through truck re-identification at counting stations.
