“Traditionally reliant on lengthy deployments with project teams present on-site, the industry is transitioning from being dependent on complex engineering projects towards deploying solutions that accelerate value delivery while minimizing disruptions to control centres’ daily operations,” says Valerann’s co-founder and Chief Business Officer Michael Vardi.
Valerann’s solution is an AI cloud-based platform that ingests data from all available data sources. It takes data from the existing infrastructure (radars, cameras, loops, sensors) and complements it with data from floating data sources (connected vehicles, crowd-sourced applications) and weather data.
“Through cross-validation, verification and prioritisation of the events, the platform builds roads’ risk profiles and delivers an accurate and comprehensive overview of the road traffic situation in real time,” says Vardi. “This enables road operators to have better situational awareness, reduce human error, increase road safety and reduce CO2 emissions and pollution, to name but a few benefits.”
Remote delivery of advanced solutions for traffic control centres enables the remote maintenance of mission-critical software, thus minimizing risks of downtime
Remote delivery of advanced solutions for traffic control centres enables the remote maintenance of mission-critical software, thus minimizing risks of downtime. The more far-reaching impact of this is in reducing barriers for road operators and municipalities to benefit from deploying these life-saving systems.
Lanternn by Valerann™, is a powerful new-generation data analytics software platform capable of ingesting structured and unstructured data streams from all available disparate data sources. Hardware- and software-agnostic, it seamlessly integrates with the existing road infrastructure and provides road traffic operators with comprehensive overview of real-time traffic situation empowering them to take data-driven decisions.
As Vardi explains: “We need to make sure that the people that we trust to manage our road network are able to trust the data that they get, and therefore also trust the decisions they make based on that data. As I see it, our mission is to empower these road operators through the data by helping them to trust their data by helping them to act upon that data in order to get a much more impactful response.”
