iCone Congratulates the City of Arlington Texas
City of Arlington becomes the first Connected Tech Community in the state of Texas
LIVERPOOL, N.Y. - March 27, 2018 - PRLog -- iCone Products LLC would like to congratulate the City of Arlington for becoming the first Connected Tech Community in the state of Texas. Arlington is installing iCone's Connected Technology as upgrades to key pieces of the City's road maintenance equipment so that drivers can be more aware of road work activities. In the coming months flashing arrow signs, some work trucks and maybe even some flaggers will be showing up on traffic systems around the City.
The City and iCone Connected Tech cooperate with the Waze Connected Citizen Partner program to deliver road work information directly to your car via the Waze app. Now features such as 'flashing arrow panels' and work trucks are tied directly to your app improving both your safety and mobility.
The City of Arlington has a grant from the FHWA Surface Transportation Block Grant Program administered by North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG). The grant is intended to help the City share their work zone activity in real-time to roadway users through navigation applications such as Waze and 511DFW. The City has chosen to adopt iCone's Connected Tech to upgrade key pieces of construction equipment so that those items automatically show up in Waze, 511DFW, and other navigation devices.
The Waze map evolves with every driver and data point it receives, promoting safer roads and sharing more knowledge with Wazers about potential delays to their commutes. The Connected Citizens Program yields even more data, giving local citizens a greater ability to circumvent construction, road closures and traffic jams within the app. iCone® can also provide Wazers with advanced notice of roadway construction events on both a large and small scale. When Wazers choose to route around construction the world is a safer and more mobile place.
