New HAAS Alert Integration with Hill & Smith

Dec. 3, 2020

Hill & Smith Inc. has added HAAS Alert’s Safety Cloud® and HA-5 Transponder collision prevention and real-time digital alerting system to its industry-leading line of ITS & Smart Work Zone solutions, bringing the latest roadway safety technology to Work Zones across the world.

Safety Cloud® provides roadway workers with advanced safety and protection by delivering real-time notifications to approaching drivers through Waze and in-vehicle navigation systems, providing more advance warning for motorists to safely avoid collision with crews and equipment. These alerts provide approaching drivers a 15-20 seconds warning to safely Slow Down. Safety Cloud® is available as an add-on safety solution for active Work Zone products and easily integrates into Hill & Smith’s diverse line of Smart Work Zone devices.

Hill & Smith’s exclusive distribution of HAAS Alert’s HA-5 Transponder seamlessly integrates into the current line of Smart Work Zone devices, such as the Vehicle-Mounted Message Boards and Smart ArrowMaster™ Pro-Line Arrow Boards, to send Work Zone safety alerts to approaching motorists through Waze and in-vehicle navigation systems. The Transponder runs off vehicle or Smart Work Zone device power and can be installed inside a vehicle or within a plastic enclosure.

With vehicle-to-everything (V2X) technology gaining momentum globally, the connections between vehicles, roadside infrastructure, Work Zone equipment and personnel, and backend management systems will be at the core of Smart Cities and next-generation mobility.
