Applied Information Uses Internet of Things Technology to Send Alerts When Transportation Infrastructure is Knocked Down

Traffic lights, beacons, signs, and poles can call for help when
knocked over

ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”” target=”_blank”gt;#CV2Xlt;/agt;–Applied
Information, Inc
., the leading provider of intelligent
transportation infrastructure technology, announced today a new product
to detect when a traffic control device has been knocked down due to an
accident, storm, or vandalism and call for help.

The knockdown sensor uses battery power and wireless Internet of Things
(IoT) technology to send alerts to transportation system managers when
it is in an abnormal position. The knockdown sensor is part of the
Glance™ Smart City Supervisory System suite of products.

“We rely on traffic control devices to help keep our transportation
network operating safely and efficiently,” said Peter Ashley, Vice
President of Business Development and Marketing. “When these devices get
knocked down due to an accident or high winds, it is important that they
be restored as quickly as possible. This product will send an alert
instantly to transportation engineers, so repairs can be made more

The AI-900-032 Knockdown Detection Sensor connects to any Applied
Information device and monitors it for sudden and unexpected changes in
orientation. The sensor is self-calibrating, so no configuration is
necessary. If the device has more than a 10-degree change that persists
for more than 30 seconds, the sensor sends an alert to appropriate
personnel via text, email, and the Glance dashboard. For more
