Econolite Group And Savari Finalize Partnership Agreement

Partnership to accelerate deployment of advanced vehicle-to-infrastructure systems in support of connected and autonomous vehicles and Smart Cities.

Econolite Group announced it has finalized negotiations with Savari Inc., forming an exclusive partnership to accelerate the deployment of vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) safety applications supporting the rapidly expanding Connected and Automated Vehicle (CAV) marketplace. The partnership agreement provides Econolite exclusive distributorship of Savari’s StreetWAVE Roadside Units (RSUs) to the Americas (U.S., Canada, Mexico and South America), Middle East and Africa.

“Our partnership with Savari Inc. brings together the industry leaders in ITS and V2X technologies,” said Gary Duncan, Econolite Group senior vice president and chief technology officer. “The expanding development of connected and automated vehicles plus Smart City initiatives is placing greater importance on V2I capabilities. This partnership will help ensure that we can quickly respond to and support the V2I needs of cities, planners and transportation agencies.”

Savari StreetWAVE RSUs combined with Econolite’s Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) solutions (Centracs ATMS and Econolite Cobalt controllers) enable new levels of traffic management that can significantly reduce congestion and enhance safety, as well as establish the infrastructure foundation for CAV networks, the two companies say. V2I safety applications such as Red Light Violation Warning, Curve Speed Warning (CSW) and Work Zone Warning are easily attained by implementing Econolite and Savari technologies.

“This agreement represents a strategic focus on helping the future of connected and automated vehicles become reality,” said Ravi Puvvala, CEO of Savari. “Our successful V2X collaboration efforts combined with commercially available solutions uniquely positions the two companies to offer the most comprehensive and proven V2I solutions today. We look forward to this partnership helping deploy the V2X communications foundation that ushers in the Smart Cities transformation.”

Econolite Group and Savari have collaborated on a number of connected vehicle research projects and proof of concept demonstrations, including the Multi-Modal Intelligent Traffic Signal System (MMITSS) project that demonstrated how V2X technologies can optimize intersection operation and provide improved response to priority requests for emergency, transit and freight vehicles. MMITSS leveraged commercially available ITS systems from Econolite and V2X communication products from Savari together with advanced control and priority concepts developed by the University of Arizona.
