C-V2X Infrastructure Technology from Applied Information Deployed in More Than 500 Communities across the U.S.

Applied Information, Inc., the leading provider of intelligent
transportation infrastructure technology, announced today that its LTE
C-V2X products are now deployed in more than 500 U.S. cities, counties,
school districts and states – providing cellular connectivity to traffic
signals, school zone flashing beacons, emergency vehicles and other
traffic control devices.

The Applied Information V2N technology enables drivers, pedestrians and
the infrastructure to connect with the free TravelSafely™ smartphone app
creating a safer mobility experience. Transportation engineers are
empowered to monitor and control their traffic management networks
anywhere and anytime with a smartphone or tablet with the technology.

“Now is the time for the public and private sectors to invest in
deploying connected vehicle infrastructure based on the cellular and
Internet-of-Things technology that has transformed our lives in the past
decade,” said Bryan Mulligan, President of Applied Information. “By
incorporating C-V2X technology as standard in all our products, we can
achieve the rapid scale that this technology needs to make connected
vehicles work.”

“Our current LTE-based C-V2X technology is deployed in more than 10,000
transportation infrastructure devices today. This technology has moved
past the pilot program and test phase and is saving lives, improving
traffic, driving commerce and helping the environment in communities
across the U.S. By making all these devices C-V2X enabled, we have
already started building the universal connected infrastructure our
nation needs,” he said.

Applied Information plans to deploy 5G C-V2X to its connected
infrastructure technology in 2019 – upgrading existing installations as
market conditions demand.

C-V2X connected infrastructure applications of the Applied Information
Glance™ Smart Cities Supervisory System include:

The cellular connectivity provided by the Applied Information technology
enables the infrastructure to communicate with any cloud-connected
device. For example, the Applied Information TravelSafely smartphone app
connects drivers to the infrastructure, providing the first application
of connected vehicle technology using data from multiple infrastructure
sources for day-to-day use by the general public. TravelSafely also
connects these vehicles to other app users such as pedestrians, cyclists
and scooter riders to provide alerts and warning of potential crashes.
