Central Florida-based green, high-tech company BLUE-BAND announced on 25 October 2018 that Florida’s DOT Traffic Engineering Research Lab (TERL) approved their Multi-Use Intelligent Detection Suite.
The company specializes in offering a solution to the needs of the government agencies to make the roadways efﬁcient and safe. Managing the rapid expansion of urban areas is a daunting task for transportation professionals because the systems, for a variety of reasons, cannot satisfy the numerous requirements of urban mobility, as a result of this; it becomes a necessity to ﬁnd creative ways to do more with less. In an attempt to provide the perfect solution to the roadways problems, BLUE-BAND introduced their cost-efﬁcient way for transportation managers and staff to transform the transportation industry.
While talking about the company, BLUE-BAND Chief Executive Ofﬁcer Kevin Yorke said: “BLUE-BAND’S technology suite helps make our infrastructure smarter, safer, and more efﬁcient while reducing the cost of ownership and maintenance to accelerate the deployment of an intelligent transportation infrastructure that turns our roadways into ‘smart-ways’.
