We have been awarded more than 550 global transportation patents spanning road usage charging, transit, public safety and curbside management, with more than 40 pending patent applications in the works. Recent highlights include:

  • A patent for the development of a method and system for predicting demand for public transportation vehicles at a location, such as a bus stop.
