Naples, FL to add BlueToad Travel Tracker

Naples, Florida has been awarded a grant that allows the city to purchaseTrafficCast’s BlueToad travel time system equipment. The $129,000 grant provides for the city’s Traffic Management Center to acquire 25 BlueToad traffic controllers, two new servers and the accompanying software.

BlueToad is an operating system which tracks the speed and volume of traffic flow in an area – the city of Naples, for example – by picking up Bluetooth signals, in a non-invasive fashion, from moving vehicles. The information goes to the BlueToad operating system to show traffic flow and patterns, allowing traffic managers to quickly spot, and deal with, problem areas.
