“TrafficLand has removed the technological and financial barriers to sharing live video from closed traffic camera networks,” said Lawrence Nelson, Founder and CEO of TrafficLand, Inc. “Now, our state and local DOT partners can leverage the full information value of live traffic video by providing traffic camera access to virtually anyone with an Internet connection.”
“Through TrafficLand’s integrated network, DOTs, emergency responders and commuters can also gain access to camera networks in neighboring jurisdictions, which can increase awareness of conditions and incidents that might affect local roadways,” Mr. Nelson said.
