Parametrix and LYT Partner to Provide Smart Technology Solutions for More Livable Communities
Seattle, WA – March 1, 2022 – Parametrix, an established planning, engineering, technology, and management consultancy company based in Seattle, entered into an agreement to deliver smart technology solutions for more livable communities using LYT’s cloud-based smart traffic solutions.
LYT’s traffic management platform, called LYT.speed, works with existing infrastructure and algorithms to efficiently manage traffic flow in the cloud. The platform will complement Parametrix’s approach to smart and livable communities through emergency vehicle preemption, transit signal priority, and real-time signal status.
The LYT.speed platform comprises LYT.emergency, the next-generation Emergency Vehicle Preemption (EVP), and LYT.transit, the next-generation Transit Signal Priority (TSP) solutions. Both solutions produce a consistent and reliable green light for every transit or emergency vehicle more affordably than other products on the market. These solutions 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.
“A key objective at Parametrix is to help communities enhance mobility, safety, and sustainability. Through our strategic partnership with LYT, we will provide unique solutions to improve traffic flows and reduce greenhouse gas emissions in our communities. This partnership represents another step toward our vision for the future of transportation and the future of the profession,” said Hicham Chatila, the National Director of Smart and Livable Communities at Parametrix.
“Parametrix and LYT share a single vision to build better communities, so partnering to deliver smart traffic solutions to help communities everywhere is very simply a perfect partnership,” said Timothy Menard, Founder and CEO of LYT. “Together, we’re looking forward to delivering a safer and more efficient environment to cities, communities and individuals as part of their everyday experiences on the road.”
