GiveMeGreen!, an application developed by traffic management company Sensys Networks, has been released nationwide. The app, designed to turn traffic lights green for cyclists, connects a user's smartphone to a Sensys gateway via Bluetooth. This application is not the only solution of its kind, as companies like Rapid Flow and Miovision offer similar capabilities via camera detection, though the smartphone app integration is lower-cost and easier for cities to implement if they already have Sensys systems in place. While no single detection method or system has emerged as a market leader, expect municipalities to continue to deploy multimodal traffic management systems that fit the specific needs and conditions of local communities.
