Obtain Real-time Traffic Data from Remote Intersections with iCITE™ Data Aggregator™

The Eberle Design Inc. iCITE™ Data Aggregator™ (DA-100B) Series field monitoring device, is the first system capable of accessing real-time intersection and cabinet data from any traffic cabinet via high-speed wireless or Ethernet enabled Cloud-based IP connection. Traffic signal technicians and engineers can access real-time arterial traffic and intersection information, such as vehicle counts by phase, phase status changes, cabinet alarms, and traffic cabinet operational status from remote, non-interconnected intersections.
