The partnership will provide an out-of-the-box solution to today’s congested roadways
Colorado-based companies Kritek and Skyline Products have struck a strategic agreement to offer new turnkey, smart city solutions beginning with Smart Trip Travel Times to provide estimated route times to the travelling public.
Kritik is behind the cloud-native Klover while Skyline Products is a provider of the National Transportation Communications for Intelligent Transportation System Protocol (NTCIP) dynamic message signs.
“Customers are looking for turnkey solutions that tightly integrate software and hardware to solve specific transportation needs,” said Pawan Kharbanda, CEO of Kritek.
“Our partnership provides an out-of-the-box solution to today’s congested roadways, posting current trip travel times to signage on well-travelled routes.”
Existing Skyline customers can also take advantage of this partnership. Klover includes adapters for most Skyline signs to be Klover-enabled and gain the benefits of the Klover smart transportation platform.
Kritek and Skyline said they plan to extend their partnership to incorporate other turnkey solutions for smart cities such as parking availability, pedestrian and bicycle safety, and transit.
“As the ITS industry moves toward increasingly intelligent traffic systems, robust hardware-software integration has become critical to efficient traffic management,” added Chip Stadjuhar, president and CEO of Skyline Products.
“Partnering with Klover allows us both to meet an important customer need, providing a unique, field-ready solution that keeps traffic moving safely on crowded roadways.”
