Savari Named to ITS World Congress Hall of Fame

Intelligent Transportation System Award Recognizes Savari as a Leader of V2X Communications Technology

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwired - October 31, 2017) - Savari Inc., a Silicon Valley-based auto tech company, today announced that it has been selected to the ITS World Congress Hall of Fame for its leadership and contributions to the V2X (Vehicle-to-Everything) communication technology market. This prestigious hall of fame was started in 2010 to recognize the luminaries and thought leaders in intelligent transportation services (ITS).

The award will be announced at the 24th ITS World Congress in Montreal on October 31. Savari is the first V2X technology solution provider to be named to the ITS World Congress Hall of Fame. The company joined ITS America as a member in 2008. ITS America members are leading the technological modernization of transportation systems around the world by supporting the research, deployment, and public policy for the future of ITS.

V2X technology enables cars to communicate 10 times a second with other V2X enabled cars and ITS-enabled systems -- roadside infrastructure. This V2X data is analyzed in real time, providing the driver with a more detailed view of the driving environment and up to a three-second window for preventing an accident. Additionally, this data can be aggregated and further analyzed in the cloud and distributed over the cellular network to provide earlier alerts to all drivers of upcoming accidents, weather warnings, traffic patterns along with enhanced transportation data services to any cellular enabled vehicle.

Savari's MobiWAVE™ On-Board Units (OBUs), StreetWAVE™ Road-Side Units (RSUs), V2X middleware and over 50 V2X applications are deployed in over a dozen V2X smart city deployments. Econolite and Savari will be demonstrating a V2X-enabled intelligent traffic system, CV demo, at ITS World Congress in Econolite's booth (#1509).

Additionally, Savari executives will moderate the following ITS World Congress panels:

Comments on the News:

"Over the last 12 months, we've seen many cities around the world look at the feasibility of deploying V2X technology today. Up to 94 percent of all car accidents in the U.S. can be eliminated with V2X technology, this technology will save lives and reduce traffic congestion in our cities. There's not another technology that can make that claim in auto tech. Savari's V2X hardware, safety applications and data services are proven by academia, DOTs, automotive and ITS communities for connected and autonomous car applications, and smart city applications," said Ravi Puvvala, CEO, Savari.

"Savari is a leader in V2X communication technology that recognizes the importance of connecting government and industry communities to transform transportation. With the USDOT publicly embracing V2X technology late last year, it was clear that Savari's efforts and all others in the ITS industry has reached a critical point. We see V2X technology's potential impact on transportation safety and efficiency. Savari was a clear choice for us to add to the ITS World Congress Hall of Fame. We believe V2X is one of the foundational technologies for ITS now and into the future," said Dan Ronan, Vice President of Strategic Communications at ITS America.
