CALGARY, ALTA – Technology company Cell-Loc Inc. has received a federal grant to study vehicle-tracking in real-time using probes.
The grant was for only $141,600.
According to the company, the study includes “the collection and dissemination of real-time traffic information for traffic monitoring purposes.”
It went on to say that “The objective of this closed trial is to determine the technical feasibility of developing a traffic monitoring application,” using its Cellocate wireless-location technology.
The study will use cellular devices in vehicles to determine traffic flow. It points out that currently, this is done using stationary vehicle detecting sensors.
The tests will be conducted at a Cell-Loc facility in Calgary.
