Danlaw, Inc., a connected vehicle technology provider, will demonstrate the powerful safety applications of its latest V2X solution at ITS America’s 28th Annual Meeting in Washington DC on June 4-7.
Danlaw collaborated with Code 3, a provider of light and sound solutions for emergency vehicles, to develop the industry’s first fully integrated V2X system for emergency and utility vehicles. The joint demo will feature a V2X-equipped police vehicle which illustrates the importance of traffic signal preemption in emergency situations.
In partnership with Code 3, Danlaw has leveraged its extensive experience to design the emergency vehicle lighting module with a fully integrated V2X antenna. The antenna connects to Danlaw’s AutoLink Onboard Unit (OBU), which is integrated with Code 3’s emergency vehicle system to provide first responders with 360-degree vehicle awareness and safety insight. By simply switching on the vehicle’s emergency lights and siren, the V2X system will communicate with roadside equipment to request traffic light preemption. This feature will temporarily stop cross-traffic so that first responders can quickly maneuver through intersections that may otherwise be congested. Our system is designed to improve safety on the road, reduce emergency response times, and save lives.
