Combined expertise and technology gives agencies a cost effective way to reduce traffic congestion and improve road safety.
GASTONIA, NC – September 20, 2022 – Miller Alliance Group (MAG) and Eco Partnering Innovations (EPI), Smart City technology solution providers and experts within ITS, Traffic and Planning and Ubicquia, Inc., a company dedicated to making intelligent infrastructure platforms that are simple to deploy and monitor, announce a strategic partnership. The organizations are collaborating to provide agencies with better insights into traffic safety and the intelligence required to increase traffic efficiency.
Agencies are looking for flexible systems that can help them understand traffic patterns, improve congestion and reduce air pollution from cars. The I-95 corridor – which stretches 1,917 miles from Maine to Florida – sees an average of 72,000 vehicles with maximum daily traffic reaching as high as over 300,000 vehicles. Among the 1,040 miles traversing through urban areas, over 60 percent is currently under heavy congestion. The UbiHub AP/AI video monitoring and analytics platform provides insights into vehicle, bicycle and pedestrian traffic patterns. Combined with Edge AI, the UbiVu management console provides the data needed to reduce congestion, improve safety, and better allocate resources to ensure better managed traffic and parking. Along with these insights, agencies are able to use the technology to find new opportunities for revenue generation with real-time insights into parking availability and violation enforcement. When compared to conventional multi-vendor solutions, the UbiHub is a smart city workhorse that reduces the total cost of ownership by 42 percent, according to Northeast Group.
“Miller Alliance Group, LLC is excited to represent Ubicquia within the Smart City marketplace of the Carolinas,” said Lori Miller, Principal-Owner of Miller Alliance Group, LLC. “From streetlights to infrastructure, the innovative and intelligent suite of products from Ubicquia will help make communities safer, provide agencies with traffic safety insight, and repurpose existing infrastructure, saving money, and bringing projects to fruition faster by reducing implementation time.”
