Eberle Design Inc. to Present iCITE™ Solutions at Transportation Research Board Annual

Eberle Design Inc. will feature solutions from our Intelligent Cabinet, Intersection and Travel-time Equipment (iCITE™) suite of products at next week’s TRB Annual Meeting in Washington, DC. Eberle Glance™ and Reno AE Glance™ is the first system capable of accessing real-time intersection and arterial traffic data from any traffic cabinet, regardless of the traffic controller or central ITS system.

The Eberle Glance™ and Reno AE Glance™ system is invaluable to providers of performance measurement data who can now access real-time, accurate traffic and intersection information such as traffic counts by phase, phase status changes, cabinet alarms, and duration of signal phase by color.

Stop by booth 318 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, January 11-15, to learn more about Eberle Glance™, Reno AE Glance™ and how EDI is working to meet the critical needs of our customers.

Bernie's Notes

I plan to be at TRB's annual meeting next week in Washington, DC. First, I'd welcome the opportunity to meet you if you'll be attending. Second, as happened previously for TRB, I'd like to know if anyone would be interested in sponsoring my attendance. The approximate cost is $700. In return, you'll be able to have seven days of ads in the TCN, or some other service such as voiceover work, in return for your support. If you'd like to meet or are interested in sponsoring me, please send me an email at Thank you!
