Danlaw and Code 3 Are Creating Safer Roads for First Responders

NOVI, Mich., May 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Danlaw, Inc., a global leader in connected vehicle technology, will demonstrate the powerful safety applications of its latest V2X solution at ITS America's 28th Annual Meeting in Washington DC on June 4-7. Danlaw collaborated with Code 3, a leading provider of light and sound solutions for emergency vehicles, to develop the industry's first fully integrated V2X system for emergency and utility vehicles. The joint demo will feature a V2X-equipped police vehicle which illustrates the importance of traffic signal preemption in emergency situations.

In partnership with Code 3, Danlaw has leveraged its extensive experience to design the industry's first emergency vehicle lighting module with a fully integrated V2X antenna. The antenna connects to Danlaw's AutoLink Onboard Unit (OBU), which is integrated with Code 3's emergency vehicle system to provide first responders with 360-degree vehicle awareness and safety insight. By simply switching on the vehicle's emergency lights and siren, the V2X system will communicate with a roadside equipment to request traffic light preemption. This feature will temporarily stop cross-traffic so that first responders can quickly maneuver through intersections that may otherwise be congested. Our system is designed to improve safety on the road, reduce emergency response times, and save lives.

"We are thrilled to be teaming up with Danlaw at ITS America," said Randy Brown, Vice President Global Strategic Marketing at Code 3. "We are excited to be able to demonstrate the benefits of V2X through the new Code 3 Matrix demo car featuring V2X Powered by Danlaw. Our joint technology initiative fully aligns with our commitment to offer solutions that increase safe operation of emergency vehicles by enabling police cars with traffic signal preemption!"

Join Danlaw and Code 3 at ITS America (booth #207) to experience the most advanced V2X transportation solution on the market.
