For the past few years, Miovision has been attending the Transportation Research Board’s Annual Meeting. This year’s event marks the 92nd meeting, which was held in Washington, DC from January 13-17, 2013. TRB attracts over 10,000 transportation professionals and provides more than 4,000 presentations in nearly 750 sessions and workshops.
This year’s conference theme was ‘Deploying Transportation Research – Doing Things Smarter, Better, Faster’. It is very relevant for Miovision as our solutions for in-house and outsourced data collection provide transportation professionals with the ability to collect more accurate traffic data in less time and effort. Our online traffic data management portal also gives added benefits to our customers with storing, organizing and sharing traffic data.
We had a lot of interest in our booth and many transportation professionals stopping by to inquire about Traffic Data On Demand. This is Miovision’s online traffic data collection solution which allows traffic professionals to request traffic data collection using our online data management software. Many individuals were intrigued by the standardized pricing and turnaround time, as well as the convenience of streamlining traffic data collection requests.
High Interest Topics at TRB
Our team had a great time at the TRB Annual Meeting. We were tweeting throughout the show (@Miovision) and even posted a photo. There was lots of coverage of the event on Twitter with almost 4,000 tweets using the #TRBAM. This is an increase from last year’s 2,800 tweets.
Not only did we have great conversations with attendees, but able to take in some of the educational sessions. A lot of the transportation professionals were interested in the ITS themed sessions discussing adaptive signal control, V2V (vehicle to vehicle), V2I (vehicle to infrastructure) and ITS traffic operations. There was a lot of information available from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) as well as the Research and Innovative Technology Administration (RITA).
These sessions were very informative and played into Miovision’s 2013 Trends in Transportation webinar that was presented earlier today. It reviewed the trends and priorities for transportation professionals in 2013. If you missed out on this webinar, it will be posted within a week on our webinar page.
Thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth, including numerous customers and professional contacts. If you didn’t have a chance to stop by our booth or would like to speak to a member of our team, contact us directly.
