GEWI’s TIC Software Powers In-Vehicle Work Zone Alerts at ITS America

Visitors to ITS America in Detroit had the opportunity to take a demonstration drive and experience a new In-Vehicle Smart Work Zone alert designed to improve safety in work zones. The demonstration used off-the-shelf products from GEWI, HERE Technologies and iCone to alert driver to real-time work zone conditions, closures and advice related to approaching road work.

iCone devices on work zone equipment transmit real-time information collected by GEWI’s TIC Software.  TIC is also used in the HERE’s Live Traffic Operations Center where HERE systems deliver the work zone data to the in-vehicle navigation system as well as portable navigation devices (PND’s).

The ITS America demonstration is similar to a German Smart Work Zone project powered by GEWI which was launched in March of 2018. Those unable to take a temp ride at ITS America can learn more about this project here. For more information about how your agency can benefit from this Smart Work Zone technology, contact
