TRB 2018 Showcase of Active Transportation Data Logging Technology

PERSENTECH will be attending the Transportation Research Board (TRB) conference and exhibition in Washington, D.C. from January 9th through to the 11th, 2018 and is arranging private demonstrations of its active transportation technology. This technology is targeted at organizations conducting travel studies and personal mobility research.

The Otto Transportation Study Solution (OTSS) includes a data logger device that is small, low cost and that includes a re-chargeable battery: perfect for designing studies for young and old without exclusive reliance on smart-phone applications.  The device works with a gateway application that downloads the device logs through Bluetooth for upload to the Ottodata dashboard via a network connection. The Ottodata dashboard web application stores/organizes the data according to the organization’s projects and provides analysts with instant access to the mobility information with data analysis, map visualization and charting functions.

The demonstrations will be taking place at the Mariott Marquis Hotel, right within the TRB convention: 901 Massachusetts Ave NW, Washington, DC 20001, USA.

Please contact PERSENTECH to book your demonstration and opportunity to use a PDL50, gateway and the dashboard.

Port Freight Movement Statistics collected using Ottoview data loggers

January 29, 2016: Persen Technologies Inc. (PERSENTECH), a leading innovator of data logging systems and solutions, has passed a rigorous selection process and won a tender to supply Ottoview Vehicle Data Loggers to CargoM, la GRAPPE MÉTROPOLITAINE DE LOGISTIQUE ET TRANSPORT DE MONTRÉAL, to support their objectives in increasing freight movement efficiency. The data collected by the Ottoview data loggers will provide CargoM with a detailed and rich data set to establish baseline metrics and to develop intervention techniques to increase freight movement efficiency through an integrated multi-modal solution.

Port performance or freight movement statistics are dependent upon traditional paper and pen surveys provided to drivers, freight forwarders, and port operators. The collected information poses challenges in data entry, data integrity and data processing to extract the required information to determine truck dwell times, port congestion, and the economic and environmental impact to the surrounding area. The Ottoview data loggers and the Ottodata big data management system provide an autonomous data collection system that includes survey information. Surveys are presented at the start and stop of the trips, and the loggers collect GPS and vehicle diagnostic information continuously while the trucks are operational. The resulting data set is tangible and includes all the relevant statistics that can be used to increase operational efficiencies for all stakeholders.

PERSENTECH’s products and services are used in various transportation studies and vehicle-use urveys including Transport Canada’s Canadian Vehicle Use Study deployed nation-wide. The innovations include ease-of-installation, portability to move the device from vehicle-to-vehicle, vehicle-tracking and reporting solutions, smart phone applications, and street level map data for Location Based Services (LBS). The VDL50 multi-protocol logger in particular, can be used with both light and heavy-duty vehicles and provides visual and audible trip information including fuel-use and CO2 emissions.
