City Receives Three Awards for Public Works Projects
APWA Southern California Chapter Recognizes Santa Clarita with Trio of B.E.S.T. Awards
The American Public Works Association’s (APWA) Southern California Chapter once again recognized the City of Santa Clarita for its accomplishments, honoring the City with three prestigious Public Works awards in 2019. The City received the organization’s B.E.S.T. (Building Excellence, Shaping Tomorrow) awards for Give Me Green, the Copper Hill Park Restroom and Play Area, and the Orchard Village Median Rain Garden at the APWA Southern California Chapter’s annual awards ceremony in December.
Give Me Green received an award in the Creative & Innovative project category and is managed by the City’s Traffic division. Give Me Green is a free smartphone application developed in partnership with Sensys Networks that allows bicyclists to be detected as they approach an intersection. By integrating this technology into existing traffic signals and adding signage to inform drivers when cyclists are detected, the City has worked to improve safety, decrease congestion and improve the travel experience for cyclists and drivers.
TagMaster´s Annual report in Swedish can now be found here on our web.
English version will be available during week 14.
TagMaster joins Omniair as executive level member.
As the year winds down, OmniAir Consortium® continues to press forward and grow our international member base. TagMaster is the second member to join in October as they see the value in participating today, versus waiting for the New Year.
TagMaster provides RFID technologies for Automatic Vehicle Identification in all electronic tolling systems. Their UHF readers, with a radio frequency of 860-930 MHz, are optimized for road toll applications with advanced, algorithm-based multi-lane features. Their Electronic Toll Collection (ETC), All-Electronic Toll Collection (AETC) and Multi-Lane Free-Flow (MLFF) systems enable selected users fast access through tollgates, as well as cashless toll payments – eliminating the need to stop. These solutions are safer, faster, simpler and more efficient, reducing some of the public resistance to the introduction of new toll lanes.
“OmniAir looks forward to the contributions TagMaster will provide as an Executive Member as we finalize our plans and launch our new multi-protocol RFID certification program for tolling in Q1 of 2020,” said Jason Conley, Executive Director of OmniAir Consortium.
OmniAir Consortium is the leading industry association promoting interoperability and certification for ITS, tolling, and Connected Vehicles. OmniAir’s membership includes public agencies, private companies, research institutions, and independent test laboratories.
CA Traffic – one of several leading partners who have connected devices through Telensa´s new solution for smart streetlight infrastructure
Telensa Urban IQ solution connects sensors through smart streetlight infrastructure
Telensa, the leader in connected street lighting and smart city data applications, today announced the launch of Urban IQ. A future-proof, open solution designed to connect sensors using smart streetlight infrastructure and visualise the data collected.

GiveMeGreen! enables advance detection of bicyclists at key intersections, enhancing safety and traffic flow.
Sensys Networks Inc. is pleased to announce its beta-release of GiveMeGreen!, an innovative new smartphone app for bicycle detection at signalized intersections. GiveMeGreen! is the first of many connected and autonomous traveler apps developed by Sensys Networks Inc., the world’s leading provider of integrated wireless traffic data systems for Smart Cities. This initial deployment is a pilot program to improve safety for bicyclists and travel convenience for all motorists in Santa Clarita, California.
“We are delighted to be working with the City of Santa Clarita on this pilot program,” says Amine Haoui, CEO of Sensys Networks. “GiveMeGreen! allows Cities to easily tailor the services they want to provide for bicyclists, pedestrians, truck drivers and many other travelers while leveraging the common components of this platform. This Infrastructure-to-Everything (I2X) system for connected and autonomous travelers will improve safety, decrease congestion and improve the travel experience for many different types of connected travelers.”
The system consists of the GiveMeGreen! smartphone app which allows the bicyclist using the app to be automatically detected up to 300 feet in advance of the intersection. Once detected, the traffic signal applies the normal pedestrian-crossing signal timing function. This will allow pedestrians and bicyclists to use the same signal phase and will not cause any delay for motorists. There are also new signs that illuminate only when bicyclists or pedestrians are detected to warn turning motorists on Soledad Canyon that bicycles or pedestrians will be crossing the intersection during the next green light. Finally, the system includes a bicycle-only light at each intersection along the bike trail which confirms to the bicyclist that they have been detected.
“This free app will greatly benefit both bicyclists and motorists by providing better information about the presence of bikes at these intersections,” says Cesar Romo, Chief Traffic Signal System Administrator for the City of Santa Clarita. “GiveMeGreen! not only improves safety, but also improves the ride experience for Santa Clarita’s legions of bicyclists with automatic and reliable advance detection.” This pilot system demonstrates the flexibility of the Sensys Networks platform, as it integrates with third-party signs and City traffic controllers.
For bicyclists interesting in Beta-testing GiveMeGreen! or city planners wanting this service deployed locally, please visit http://www.sensysnetworks.com/gmg
