LYT Announces Plans For Groundbreaking New Transit Signal Prioritization Insights Module At TRB’s Annual Meeting
Pioneer of Cloud-Based Transit Solutions Plans to Unveil Never-Seen-Before Transit Performance Analytics System & Dashboard in March
Washington, D.C. – (January 9, 2023) – LYT, a leader in intelligent connected traffic technology solutions, announced today at the Transportation Research Board’s (TRB) 102nd Annual Meeting it is planning a March launch of its new cloud-based Transit Signal Prioritization (TSP) dashboard, which will encompass a new design, new features, and new reporting functionality.
The new TSP dashboard promises to provide transit organizations in cities across the U.S. an innovative fusion of data from transit vehicles and traffic lights to showcase how TSP is improving transit vehicle performance. Through the dashboard, agencies can quickly gain key insights about route performance over time, showcasing the operational benefits of LYT’s cloud-based TSP and highlighting intersections with potential operational improvements to unlock further route performance optimization. The dashboard also leverages the power of LYT’s integration with traffic light infrastructure by providing critical alerts from traffic lights along an agency’s transit routes that affect transit performance, tightening the relationship between transit agencies and their traffic partners.
LYT’s TSP (LYT.transit) produces a consistent and reliable green light for every transit vehicle more affordably than other solutions on the market. These technologies harness the power of a single-edge device installed in Traffic Management Centers that enable transit vehicles to speak directly to networked traffic signals in cities through the LYT cloud platform. LYT’s cloud-based system enables a faster, more reliable delivery of highly customizable data compared with other platforms used by agencies still utilizing a hardware-based system, and this results in the signal prioritization to take place automatically without the driver needing to take his/her eyes off the road to interact with any additional technology.
“The introduction and launch of our new TSP module will be the culmination of years of hard work and dedication by our highly skilled team of engineers, and it will position LYT as the clear-cut best-of-breed provider for urban mobility solutions,” said Timothy Menard, CEO and Founder of LYT. “As the pioneers of cloud-based transit solutions, we’re excited to know that our new module will be more than just an innovative dashboard of information, it will truly change the way transit agencies strategize and be a catalyst to move people more freely about their cities.”
LYT is an intelligent connected traffic technology provider that offers a cloud-based platform that orchestrates today’s Intelligent Transportation Systems. LYT’s AI-powered machine learning data enables a suite of transit signal priority solutions that utilize pre-existing transit tracking sensors and city communication networks to dynamically adjust the phase and timing of traffic signals to provide sufficient green clearance time while minimally impacting cross traffic. LYT is headquartered in Silicon Valley and serves municipalities across the US. Learn more at LYT.ai.
