Texas Department of Transportation Standardizes on Rekor Systems' Cloud-based AI-driven Roadway Intelligence Platform

Rekor Solutions to Help Texas Improve Traffic Congestion and Roadway Safety

COLUMBIA, MD / ACCESSWIRE / August 30, 2022 / Rekor Systems, Inc, (NASDAQ:REKR) ("Rekor" or the "Company"), a global AI technology company with a mission to provide data-driven insights that build safer, smarter and more efficient cities around the world through intelligent infrastructure, today announced that it has been selected for the launch of a multi-year program with the Texas Department of Transportation ("TxDOT") for a deployment of its traffic management technology to improve incident response time and overall roadway safety. The contract calls for the implementation of Rekor's cloud-based roadway intelligence platform at the TxDOT Combined Transportation, Emergency, and Communications Center (CTECC) facilities. The platform uses artificial intelligence and integrates date from multiple sources to provide more comprehensive and quicker incident identification than current methods.

As one of the largest cities in Texas, the TxDOT Austin District operates a Traffic Management Center (TMC) within a joint-agency CTECC facility. Until now, the TMC has depended on roadway incident notifications through multiple siloed and disparate sources and has responded accordingly via information sharing, public messaging, and dispatch of TxDOT emergency and non-emergency resources. Using the power of Rekor's AI-driven solutions, TxDOT will be able to use these existing data sources, together with multiple new data sources, for a comprehensive real-time source of roadway intelligence that improves incident response time and overall roadway safety for its citizens. The additional data sources include predictive high-potential crash hotspots, real-time connected vehicle data, and multiple other third-party data sources to alert the TMC about incidents including crashes, abandoned vehicles, roadway debris, and more. Armed with this real-time intelligence, TXDOT will be able to respond more quickly and to more incidents happening on the roadway, as well as to determine areas of high-risk zones allowing them to be more proactive in their efforts.

"Improving the safety of transportation infrastructure in Texas starts with better real-time detection and understanding of the state's roadway traffic trends and changes," said Rekor President, David Desharnais. "We are pleased to help TxDOT and other agencies within Texas achieve this with our comprehensive roadway intelligence platform and actionable insights to improve traffic congestion and respond to incidents and crashes that impact the safety of its citizens."
