Israel-based Autotalks, which specializes in Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) communication solutions, has teamed up with Applied Information, an Atlanta-based provider of intelligent transportation infrastructure solutions, to save lives on the roads.

The cooperation between the two companies aims to carry out the world’s first Dual-Mode deployment, in which Autotalks’ chipsets are installed on roadside units such as traffic lights in the first site in Georgia, Texas, and Hawaii.

The traffic control gives the right of way to emergency vehicles such as ambulances and firefighting to enable them to arrive at their destination as fast as possible, busses and vehicles involved in roadside work zones.

The Georgia site is the first real-life testing site of this type of deployment. Applied Information has signed similar agreements in Texas and Hawaii, where the two companies are cooperating in similar deployments.

In Alpharetta, over 150 traffic control devices are connected and provide a unique opportunity to make real improvements in safety and mobility on streets and highways.

He added that the collaboration will expedite Autotalks’ entry into the U.S. market.
