Traction Connect

Push real-time, geo-located notifications to drivers on your roadways.

What Is Traction Connect?

Traction Connect is a cloud-hosted virtual messaging solution that allows agencies to push relevant alerts, warnings, and traveler information to motorists in specific geographic areas.

Traction Connect delivers messages to motorists through two unique approaches, providing a safe and convenient user experience:

  • Through a mobile app linked to the motorist’s vehicle infotainment system, which safely displays relevant messages through Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™.
  • Through connected vehicle Roadside Equipment (RSE) infrastructure.

Push notifications include:

Traction Connect can also replicate messages on physical DMS.

A Smart City needs technology designed to strengthen the connection with motorists on their roadways; Traction Connect is a next-generation solution that brings the driving experience into the future.
