Connected Signals announces coverage for Manhattan traffic signals, system for high-speed visual detection
Connected Signals, Inc. announced it is adding coverage for traffic signals in Manhattan. Connected Signals says it now has data in three top-10 U.S. city locations: New York City, Phoenix, and San José. Live data is also available covering Montréal; Melbourne; Salt Lake City; Las Vegas; Portland, OR; Christchurch, New Zealand; and a range of other locations.
The company also announced that it has developed an advanced system for visual detection of traffic signals for connected and autonomous vehicles. Designed to work on its own or in conjunction with the company’s real-time, predictive, traffic-signal data streaming services, the vision system is designed to recognize traffic signals in real time, 4K, 30 FPS video using standard CPUs. With a reported accuracy rate of better than 98%, signals can be detected under conditions ranging from daylight, night, rain, clouds, and glare. Connected Signals says the system does not require the location of signals to be known in advance, and it recognizes flashing signals due to the 30 FPS frame rate.
