Path Master's New Partnership Empowers Municipalities With Limited Resources to Become Smart Cities

TWINSBURG, Ohio, Sept. 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Path Master, a leading provider of products and services to the traffic industry in Ohio, Kentucky, West Virginia, and Western Pennsylvania, today announced a partnership that can empower more municipalities ?including those with limited financial resources ? to experience the benefits of becoming a smart city, such as smoother traffic flow, reduced emissions, and a better quality of life for its residents.

Path Master is partnering with Miovision to become an exclusive distributor of Miovision TrafficLink, a smart traffic platform that helps cities to modernize their existing analog traffic signals by adding connectivity and video-based, multimodal traffic measurement and analysis. That means Path Master now offers its customers cutting-edge technology that avoids two of the biggest roadblocks to adopting smart technologies: the high costs and lengthy timeframes involved in implementation.

"We can now use a single camera for full-intersection detection," explained Scott Morse, systems and business development manager. "Doing so can cut intersection detection costs substantially."

The sophisticated cameras system also allows Path Master to provide real-time communications at intersections that don't have a fiber network. Along with video detection, the Miovision TrafficLink, also can perform signal performance measures (available for cities without a central traffic management system), safety analytics, and vehicle turn movement counts. These capabilities play a key role in improving traffic flow and increasing vehicle and pedestrian safety ? both essential aspects of becoming a smart city.

"It can take several years ? and millions of dollars ? to install a fiber network at every intersection within a city," said Morse. "We can provide a similar communications solution for an intersection in days, not years. That's a huge time and cost savings."

Additionally, this advanced technology can eliminate the need for expensive traffic studies. It provides critical high-resolution data on demand to traffic engineers every second of the day. Gathering this same information through a traffic study can cost $5,000 or more per intersection, which is why many municipalities only perform these studies every 10 or 15 years, even though they're vital to maintaining traffic flow.
