The Georgia Department of Transportation and Gwinnett Department of Transportation awarded a contract for a smart corridor deployment program to a team of companies that includes HAAS Alert.

The project will help advance Georgia' Connected Vehicle applications and capabilities by deploying a suite of industry-leading connected vehicle and smart corridor solutions for citizens and stakeholders in Gwinnett County including public safety, transit and municipal vehicles.

HAAS Alert is working in close partnership on this project with companies that include 360ns, ARCADIS, Brandmotion, Integrity Security Services, Kapsch, Metro Trafix, Q-FREE, and ReachRF. The first-of-its-kind project combines next-generation vehicle-to-vehicle C-V2X technology with HAAS Alert’s Safety Cloud collision prevention service via a single on-board unit (OBU). The solution will enable advanced connected vehicle applications and capabilities including digital alerting, emergency vehicle pre-emption and transit signal priority, delivering benefits to local commuters and drivers including safer roads and improved traffic flow while paving the way for future advancements in mobility and transportation.

HAAS Alert is committed to building mobility solutions using widely available technologies,” said Jeremy Agulnek, HAAS Alert vice president of connected vehicle. “That means utilizing LTE cellular networks today and evolving to harness the 5G and C-V2X capabilities of tomorrow. This project is a great example of how we can deliver immediate safety value to everyone today while simultaneously preparing for the future.”

HAAS Alert's Safety Cloud service, which is in use today by almost 800 public-safety agencies nationwide, prevents collisions with emergency, municipal and other alerting vehicles by delivering "slow down, move over" alerts to approaching drivers through Waze. More than 1 billion driver alerts have been processed to date through the service.
