TRX Systems, developer of NEON® Indoor Location Solutions, has been awarded a multi-year research contract from the U.S. Department of Transportation to deliver accessible navigation and routing within complex urban environments and transportation hubs. Six Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Federal Transit Administration (FTA) awardees aim to advance accessible transportation through three key technological areas:
- Wayfinding and Navigation
- Pre-Trip and Concierge Services
- Safe Intersection Crossing
TRX Systems was awarded a contract to support wayfinding and navigation with the objective of delivering real-time location, en-route assistance, and situational awareness. TRX Systems’ Smart Wayfinding and Navigation service will provide travelers with real-time location, en-route assistance and situational awareness indoors and out so they can safely navigate while traveling independently.
The Accessible Transportation Technologies Research Initiative (ATTRI) leads efforts to research and implement solutions that will help people effectively plan and execute their travel, particularly those with disabilities. NEON will assist ATTRI with tools for path planning and routing and support applications that can deliver wayfinding for travelers with diverse needs.
“TRX is leveraging global crowdsourced map data and optional, high accuracy ultra-wideband (UWB) ranging to support more effective urban navigation and routing, including within complex indoor and underground transportation hubs,” said Carol Politi, President and CEO of TRX Systems. “We look forward to engaging with a broad range of application developers to enhance independent travel for all.”
