A flagship hub of innovation excellence created by Clearview Intelligence to promote its range of sustainable ITS solutions has been unveiled to company owner Sir John Madejski ahead of its official opening in autumn.
Building on the relocation of its headquarters from Bicester to Milton Keynes at the end of last year, Clearview has extended the Insight Hub and created a highly flexible and configurable collaborative working environment.
The area will serve as both a modern meeting space and an interactive demonstration area from which to showcase its ever-increasing portfolio of innovative and award-winning route safety, network management and parking applications.
As specialists in providing low power, off grid solutions that positively influence operator and driver behaviour, Clearview has a wide array of technologies, applications and know-how that meet today’s needs and those emerging for a more hybrid connected Internet of Things based road network.
Nick Lanigan, Managing Director of Clearview Intelligence, said: “Creating this environment within the Insight Hub is essential to demonstrate how we make journeys work. It’s easy for SMEs in this industry to be overlooked, but this investment demonstrates our ongoing commitment to putting Clearview at the forefront of the ITS industry.
“As well as an interactive demonstration area promoting the benefits our applications can bring to route safety, network management and parking, this multi-purpose space also provides a great environment for hosting workshops, customer demonstrations and industry forums. We are looking forward to welcoming clients and partners to visit this space, which provides the perfect stage to demonstrate the versatility of our Insight IoT software platform and hardware technologies that will continue to grow in importance in the future of connected and automated mobility.”
Among the solutions on display within the demonstration space are enhanced delineation using the SolarLite active road stud, lane transgression and hazardous junction warning systems and vehicle / queue detection solutions for route safety; journey time monitoring for network management and zonal and bay sensor systems for parking optimisation.
It also focuses on Clearview’s vision for the future highways’ network including CAV, mobility as a service and environmentally friendly solutions. As the solutions evolve to explore new areas, so will the solutions on display.
Sir John said: “I am delighted that the new ‘Insight Hub Facility’ is now available to our customers and future customers to experience at Milton Keynes. I would like to express my grateful thanks to my team at Clearview Intelligence for creating such an important visual attraction that will help contribute to the fight against global warming.”
