BOULDER, Colo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sept. 2, 2003
Intuicom, Inc.(TM), a leader in private wireless networks for data-critical applications, announced today that they have been selected to provide the wireless communications infrastructure for an Advanced Transportation Management System for Stanford University.
This is the first implementation of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) equipment at Stanford and will provide an architecture on which future capabilities can be added.
Intuicom was selected by Avail Technologies, Inc. of State College, Penn., who is the Consultant, Project Manager and Systems Integrator for the Stanford project. Avail will oversee the project, including the deployment of the integrated wireless communications systems that will provide increased efficiencies to monitor the status and location of the fixed route bus fleet known as the Marguerite Shuttle. The Marguerite Shuttle operates 62,000 hours of passenger service and covers approximately 550,000 miles annually.
Phase one components include: Computer Assisted Dispatching/Automatic Vehicle Location (CAD/AVL), Mobile Data Communications, Mobile Data Computer, Automatic Passenger Counting and Internet Information Display. Data to and from the vehicles will be communicated in real-time via Intuicom’s wireless network to provide Dispatchers and Supervisors operational status of all the vehicles and trip status, passenger counts, and AVL location reports. The ability to add on technology in the future was a key factor for Intuicom selection. Future functions the University is considering are next-stop annunciations, wayside passenger information signs, and kiosks.
According to Dave Mencin, CTO of Intuicom: “We are very pleased to have Intuicom’s communication solution chosen for the Stanford project. We are proud to be part of the leadership role Stanford is taking with ITS at the University level.”
