Eberle Design Inc. (EDI) presents “Eberle Glance & Data Aggregator (DA-100B) Real-time Intersection Data for Performance Measurement” Webinar on April 14th 

Join Eberle Design Inc. at 8 a.m. PT/11 a.m. ET on Tuesday, April 14th for an informative 45-minute webinar on Eberle Glance™ and DA-100B Series field monitoring device, the first system capable of accessing real-time intersection and cabinet data from any traffic cabinet, regardless of the traffic controller or central ITS system. The Eberle Glance™ system is invaluable to technicians and traffic engineers that need access to remote intersections who can now access limited real-time, accurate traffic and intersection information such as traffic counts by phase, phase status changes, cabinet alarms, and health of the cabinet. Led by Matt Zinn, EDI Applications Sales and Technical Services Manager, this webinar will show participants how Eberle Glance™ and DA-100B deliver real-time traffic cabinet activity and previously unavailable access to intersection information through cloud connectivity.
