Austin, Texas — Siemens
Mobility and Logistics Division has
partnered with Acyclica Inc. to exclusively distribute Acyclica’s popular
BlueCompassTM, BlackCompassTM and CrossCompassTM hardware to the North American
market. In conjunction with Acyclica’s Analyzer software, these products are
versatile travel-time and origin-destination (OD) data measurement solutions
for the intelligent transportation industry.

The Bluetooth or Wi-Fi based sensors in the
BlueCompassTM, BlackCompassTM and CrossCompassTM hardware record the unique
signature emitted by a handheld personal devices in its vicinity and helps
cities and transit agencies measure travel times as well as origin-destination
(OD) data. The information is gathered anonymously to map congestion, conduct
origin-destination studies, monitor intersection delays, and provide
construction zone monitoring.

transportation solutions to improve the quality of life for their citizens, the
ability to gather data in real-time is essential,” said Terry Heath, president
of Siemens Mobility and Logistics Division. “This data solution is not only a
cost-effective way to measure travel time and make adjustments to traffic
control systems, but an innovative solution to aid in evacuation routes and
other situations where delays can be an issue.”

Siemens will be offering this solution through
its network of direct offices and Value Added Partners across the U.S. and
