Miovision launches tool to help cities develop a smart traffic plan


Kitchener-based Miovision, a platform dedicated to providing insights into traffic, announced the launch of a free tool that aims to help cities improve flows of traffic.

MyCitySmarts.com provides a customized infographic with an overall smart traffic signal score and an in-depth breakdown in four key areas: building an Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) master plan; adopting the right technologies to meet goals; evaluating traffic signal system performance; and openly sharing traffic data with stakeholders.

“While a lot of cities are starting to investigate smart traffic technology, many simply don’t know where to start,” said Dave Bullock, managing director of ITS at Miovision. “It can be a daunting task. The MyCitySmarts survey will help them identify their challenges and how to overcome them. By comparing responses different stakeholders within the city, it can help ensure that teams are on the same page when it comes to setting priorities and implementing changes.”

Early last year, the company raised a $30 million series B to work on its sales and engineering teams.
