PORTLAND, Ore. - June 5, 2018 - PRLog -- Bluemac Analytics announced today at ITS America in Detroit the new Bluemac x7 sensor system. With a triple play of sensors across Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE), Bluetooth Classic, and Wi-Fi, the Bluemac x7 captures more matches and reads for rich Travel Time and Origin-Destination data using the latest technology with edge computing. It employs state-of-the art privacy protection to customer-owned, White Box open data, and implements strong security protecting device and data access to only authorized parties and systems. The seventh generation x7 is flexible offering multiple configuration and customization options to meet varied customer needs and harsh deployment environments yet delivers the best total cost of ownership.
More Matches, More Reads
The Bluemac x7 delivers more matches and more reads with the triple play of BLE, Bluetooth Classic, and Wi-Fi. BLE itself is a game-changer not just for vehicle performance measures, but also opening up new multimodal, pedestrian, and bicyclist data analysis scenarios. With BLE customers get the matches they need by capturing only discoverable or advertising Bluetooth devices – more aggressive techniques are not needed.
The x7 is built with the latest technology – including the processor, memory, highest specification transceivers for BLE, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi, and with the latest 4G LTE cellular modem technology for IoT – plus is more power efficient than Bluemac's previous devices.
Rich Efficient Data
Bluemac is the leader in White Box data. Rather than making claims that are hard for customers to verify because only processed results are readily provided, customers get access to the low level raw data of not only matches but also device reads. Edge processing is applied to streamline the volume of data without losing the fidelity needed for innovative analytics and feeding AI/ML systems via Bluemac's APIs. The system also supports real-time streaming for key daily operations scenarios and also has the ability to set standard reporting intervals. As always, the customer owns the data from Bluemac.
The new system provides the best Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) on the market. Bluemac devices are leaders in price-to-performance and are offered with flexible deal structures to meet customer procurement situations and needs. The x7 is built under ISO:9001 standards with proven environmentally robust construction and enclosures. And made in the U.S.A. with American Steel.
Secure and Private
The Bluemac x7 implements industry leading security and privacy protections applying modern encryption, hashing, and secure communications techniques. The x7 device is locked down, citizen data is made anonymous and further protected with encryption while still preserving the maximal usefulness for transportation engineering and operations, including cross-agency collaboration.
Flexible and Customizable
The Bluemac x7 offers flexible configurations with customization options. Specially designed builds for in-cabinet installs (x7i), external mounting for weather exposed situations where power and/or Ethernet may be available (x7e), or when just a mount point is available with nothing else (no power, no Ethernet) using a solar-powered fully self-contained design (x7s). These can be mixed and matched within a deployment.
Special Limited Time Offer for New Customers
A special introductory offer is now available for the Bluemac x7 to new customers:
