Bentonville Street Department chooses web-based data solution from All Traffic Solutions



HERNDON, VA – MARCH 16, 2020 – In Arkansas, the Bentonville Street Department is using TraffiCloud from All Traffic Solutions (ATS) to determine how to solve current road safety challenges and plan for the future.



The implementation of technology from the Herndon, VA-based traffic safety and data analytics leader is enabling better-informed decision making and optimized allocation of budgets and other resources to handle traffic-related community issues. A significant development is that TraffiCloud will also provide data that will be used to measure and plan road capacity needs in line with future economic expansion.

The Street Department, together with the Traffic Safety & Signage Committee, handles the majority of community speeding complaints within its locality. Responses have to meet an agreed set of criteria and between them the Department and the Committee were looking for a way to ascertain whether complaints are valid and their responses appropriate.

“Before TraffiCloud, our traffic-calming measures were complaint-driven but you’ll always have a certain percentage of speed violators. The challenge was how to assess each situation and put it in context with overall traffic volumes — in some instances, the perceptions of the safety risk can be rather different from the reality. We also needed to be able to gauge how to deploy limited resources to best address any problems,” explains Tony Davis, Street Manager with the Bentonville Street Department and a member of the Traffic Safety & Signage Committee.

TraffiCloud provides accurate, dependable real-time insights by bringing together information from a wide range of sources. It is a web-based data management solution and its open-standards approach enables it to work with sensors and systems from ATS as well as other manufacturers.

Used in combination with ATS’ StatTrak portable vehicle counter classifiers, TraffiCloud is currently enabling the Bentonville Street Department to ascertain its true needs in terms of safety interventions and mitigations — where a legitimate speeding problem is identified, a remotely controlled ATS Shield radar speed sign is deployed as a traffic-calming measure.

TraffiCloud enables wide-area traffic management at minimal cost. It enables both permanent and temporary devices to be networked and so work cohesively rather than piecemeal — for instance, the Bentonville Street Department is also using ATS Shield radar speed signs to govern speeds on diversion routes necessitated by work zones.
The solution is employed by both the Street Department and local law enforcement. This means that TraffiCloud provides a wealth of high-quality data on traffic movements and drivers’ habits and, in the future, it will be employed to help re-work the local Master Street Plan. This will enable Davis and his colleagues to determine how to manage traffic capacity in line with economic development. In particular, it will help to build a picture of what’s going on and what’s needed away from main arterial routes.

The key reasons for the Bentonville Street Department choosing TraffiCloud are its versatility and connectivity, says Andy Souders, CEO of ATS.

“The Cloud means that devices can be accessed from pretty much anywhere. Data can be retrieved and operating parameters changed without having to visit the roadside.

“Remote operation frees up resources and is more cost-effective. It provides a further safety benefit because you’re not unnecessarily placing operatives next to live traffic lanes, and it speeds the collection of information for many different kinds of applications.”

Parkloco Is Transforming Parking Industry through Data Analytics


New parking data analytics startup announces its seed funding.


BOSTON, MA  APRIL 14, 2016 – Across the United States, up to 30% of downtown congestion is caused by vehicles searching for parking spaces. This issue is not necessarily due to the lack of parking spaces but rather, inefficient data within the parking ecosystem. Parking facility owners and managers have tremendous opportunities to optimize their facilities’ performance through real-time data made available by Parkloco’s enterprise software.

Unlike most companies that are attacking the parking problem from the consumer end, Parkloco aims to optimize parking facility occupancy for operators, maximize revenue capture and performance for owners, and improve the overall parking experience for both parties.
The Brown University spin off parking startup based in Boston, today announced that they have raised an undisclosed Seed round of funding, lead by Raymond Chang from NXT Ventures and Jeff Xiong from 7 Seas Ventures. Additionally, top investors as well as industry experts are involved in this round including Joe Caruso (Bantam Group), Jere Doyle, Geoffrey Bernstein (Indicator Ventures) and Dreamit Ventures among others.
“While we have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on parking hardware and software over the years, we have long been frustrated with the lack of quality reporting provided by the major revenue management systems. Parkloco has opened the door to real time data analytics by marrying the existing software and tailoring it to each of our facilities. The applications for this level of information are endless.”

The company is expanding its operations in the northeast and are currently working with some of the top national and regional operators to launch their service. The proceeds of this seed round funding will be targeted to launch and implement enterprise software solutions for parking owners and operators. Parkloco is establishing key strategic partnerships with various stakeholders across the parking and real estate industries to bring its B2B enterprise solutions.
