OMG brings its core technologies to aid US highways

- Yotta DCL's Horizons and Tempest Vehicle to be showcased for the first time in the US -

 

OMG plc, (LSE: OMG), the technology group providing image understanding products for the entertainment, defence, life science and engineering industries, announces it is set to transform the management of North American highways with a range of innovations from its highways technology arm, Yotta DCL. At a special event to be held in Washington DC (the Transport Research Board 92nd Annual General Meeting January 13-17 2013), Yotta DCL will launch Horizons, its innovative Software as a Service (SaaS) web-based software that enables a real-world view, and efficient management, of every aspect of the highway, and demonstrate how it uses OMG's cutting edge computer vision technology for visualising highways assets.

 

The event will be held at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park Hotel Exhibit Hall. Attendees are invited to visit Yotta DCL at Booth 3207 to learn more about the company's highway surveying services and cutting-edge web-based technology.

 

In addition, Yotta DCL will also showcase its well documented Tempest Capture Vehicle, built in-house for the first time in the USA. Tempest is used for vehicle-based electronic surveying to provide accuracy and speedy results on any highway type, whether a fast moving freeway or a smaller street. The vehicles are based on an integrated platform which can carry various combinations of sensors including specialised digital cameras, lasers and ground-penetrating radar to capture images of highways assets together with surface defects to give accurate data on condition and inventory without the need for multiple surveys. The vehicles are also equipped with powerful software for survey planning, on-board data capture and post-processing, which helps Local Authorities to more effectively manage their road maintenance.

 

 

Commenting on the launch Nick Bolton, CEO of OMG, said:

 

"Horizons is proving a big hit with highways authorities in the UK. Sales have dramatically increased in the last year, especially in the last six months so we are excited about launching our Horizons offering in the US. We are confident that this is a solution that will suit US highways operators and this event will provide the opportunity for delegates to find out how they can benefit from Horizons to greatly improve their highways asset management."
