Cloud Technology: Connectivity for safer roads

Cloud Technology: Connectivity for safer roads 1

Even as the technology of today’s modern world continues to develop, resolving critical issues in all aspects of society, the safety of our roads remains an ever-present and urgent concern. Cloud-based technology, and the level of connectivity between systems it allows, is vital in making the road a safer place.

Cloud-based technology is constantly evolving, improving and becoming ever more useful and commonplace in a multitude of industries. It enables access to information, systems and resources with minimal effort on the user’s part, but maximum info on output and information.

How can Coeval help?

Many of Coeval’s systems today offer cloud technology, allowing for multiple operating functions when it comes to managing Vehicle Activated Signs (VAS), Speeding Drivers, Schools signs and multi-junction traffic control systems.

Cloud technology offers flexibility; in day-to-day operation, sign operators can warn of sporadic hazards. One example would be a farmer who needs to herd their cattle over a road. With a cloud-operated sign in place, the farmer can active a warning with a hand-held transmitter to alert oncoming drivers.

Flexible and affordable

The flexibility afforded by cloud-based technology is bolstered by its ability to gather and communicate important data. Information such as average speeds can be captured, enabling users to adjust signs based on the statistics. Teachers, for example, can change and manage timings on schools’ signs depending on seasonal activities, helping to prevent road accidents involving schoolchildren.

Some of the Cloud’s Display Parameters

  •  Temperature Monitoring
  •  LED error Fault reporting
  •  Battery and Solar Monitoring
  •  Brightness Control
  •  Timer events
  •  GPRS or 3G events
  •  Communication events
  •  Data collection
  •  GPS events

The availability of cloud technology for our high-calibre LED road signs even allows users to operate signs with various platforms of communication such as:

  • Ethernet
  • Bluetooth
  • GSM/3G
  • Optical
  • RS-232
  • RS-485

With such technology available, users can manage traffic systems with handheld devices as well as desktop PCs. In other words, they can work remotely or office-based depending on their role and circumstances.

Coeval recognises the importance in moving forward with new technology that makes communication and information sharing simpler, but the ultimate objective is to make our roads and highways a safer place to travel and operate in daily. Cloud-based technology enables users flexibility, confidence in multi-tasking and a smarter way of working for the future.

    What our clients say

    Connect Plus Services M25 Dartford Crossing

    ‘Even a short closure of the tunnel causes great congestion in the area, and if an over height vehicle were to cause that level of damage, the tunnel could be closed for hours, if not days, which would bring the whole of the South East of England to a standstill.

    When the Coeval over height vehicle detectors were first installed, we were talking about 10’s of vehicles a day that we were stopping; we are now down to low single figures, 4 or 5 vehicles a day we need to extract for being over height, so it’s a great improvement in efficiency through the crossing.’

    Platinum Electrical Ltd

    ‘Having used Coeval for the first time, we found them to be friendly and really helpful in ensuring we received the correct item we required. We were happy with the extremely quick response times and professional service they offer. We would definitely recommend their services to others.’
