MANHASSET, N.Y. QuaTech Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of DPAC Technologies Corp., has announced a joint effort with MTS Technologies Inc. to collaborate on wireless solutions that support Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) standards.
The alliance will enable both QuaTech (Hudson, Ohio) and MTS Technologies (Arlington, Va.) to develop and test DSRC functionality as part of the U.S Dept. of Transportation's Vehicle Infrastructure Integration (VII) initiatives.
"Wireless ePULSE solutions have been reporting data over Michigan roadways for the past year and have helped validate Michigan Dept. of Transportation 802.11 wireless infrastructure deployments," said Larry Osentoski, MTS' Advanced Systems Director. "The integration of Quatech's 802.11 wireless device server module enabled our Wireless ePULSE solution to collect data in real-time as vehicles passed by roadside wireless access points. "
The Wireless ePULSE solution combines a ruggedized telematics control unit with backend data management applications for vehicle manufacturers. The Wireless ePULSE capability includes mobile monitoring, data collection, location tracking and backend data management and enables a real-time view into a particular fleet, region or individual vehicle operation.
