Miovision Announces Innovative Integration with Samsara to Enhance Emergency Vehicle Response Times

Innovation set to enhance public safety and efficiency across North America


Miovision, a leader in smart city solutions, is proud to announce its latest collaboration with Samsara, an authority in Internet of Things (IoT) technology for fleet management. The integration of Opticom Emergency Vehicle Preemption (EVP) with Samsara’s advanced vehicle telematics introduces a groundbreaking approach to emergency response, enabling rapid, hardware-less deployment, and significantly improved response times through cloud-connected preemption solutions.

March 1st 2024, Kitchener, Ontario – Miovision’s strategic integration with Samsara marks a significant advancement in emergency response technology. By integrating Opticom EVP solutions with Samsara’s comprehensive IoT offerings—including vehicle telematics, driver safety, and vehicle health—emergency services can now leverage Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) data for seamless preemption at signalized intersections. This technology ensures emergency vehicles arrive at their destinations faster and more safely, by utilizing GPS and GPIO data to gain immediate green light preemption without the need for additional in-vehicle hardware.

“In forging integrated partnerships, Miovision Opticom found an ideal collaborator in Samsara. Where city public safety agencies and public transit already benefit from Samsara’s CAD or AVL solutions, seamlessly integrating emergency vehicle preemption and transit signal priority onto vehicles becomes effortless, particularly when paired with Miovision Opticom solutions deployed across city signalized infrastructure.”

– Shannon Bailey, Senior Director Sales – Miovision Opticom

The collaboration highlights the benefits of cloud-connected EVP, showcasing how cities can enhance the efficiency and safety of their emergency response fleets. Prospective customers are encouraged to discover these benefits by scheduling a demo with an Opticom expert, and hearing success stories from cities that have already implemented these integrated solutions.

Reflecting on the impact of this integration, Miovision and Samsara’s joint effort underscores a commitment to leveraging technology for the improvement of public safety and urban efficiency. With over 180,000 vehicles and intersections connected with Opticom, and a history of reducing intersection crash rates by up to 70% and improving emergency response times by 25%, this partnership is poised to set new standards in emergency fleet management and public safety.
