Special to the news messenger
Thursday, ELTEC and 511 Technologies announced a strategic partnership to provide advanced cloud-connected products for the traffic and warning system industries.
The companies will collaborate to deliver an entire line of new IoTrafficTM products with a wide range of radio communication options that provide connectivity to the Internet as well as from sign-to-sign or “Machine to Machine” (or M2M).
IoTraffic products can be controlled or monitored via computers and mobile devices such as smartphones. The first product released under the IoTraffic partnership is the IoTraffic LED sign. The IoTraffic LED sign boosts visibility to save lives by improving intersection safety. End users can reduce unnecessary field visits by using IoTraffic connectivity to remotely make changes to products or monitor operation. IoTraffic products can also be configured to send various types of automated alerts.
