Cirrus by Panasonic
Making transit safer, more efficient
Our connected vehicle applications are helping protect what’s most important for critical fleets in public safety, freight and transit.
Unpredictable traffic variables create issues that impact us all: longer commutes, more pollution, higher fuel costs and - worst of all - traffic fatalities.
At Panasonic, we work hand-in-hand with colleagues across the transportation industry to address these issues with vehicle-to-everything (V2X) technology. The Cirrus by Panasonic connected vehicle platform provides the tools to enhance mobility, resulting in improved safety, lower emissions, reduced congestion and more efficient transit and emergency vehicle operations.
Since its introduction in 2018, Cirrus has been embraced by a growing number of transportation agencies and is recognized as the most innovative and trusted V2X mobility system in North America. Delivered as a scalable Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution, Cirrus offers a flexible, secure, standards-based digital architecture for mobility management, roadway safety and communication between vehicles, the road and everything that touches it.
Discover how our Cirrus platform is empowering transit agencies, municipalities and commercial fleets with intelligent transportation solutions designed for the connected vehicle era.
Enabling traffic signal priority for first responder vehicles reduces travel time to incidents, improves driver and public safety by minimizing the “conflict surface” for collisions in intersections, and supports response time commitments for agencies facing increased traffic congestion. V2X solutions are built on open national standards, making it easy to add use cases at any time for right-sized deployments.
Transportation agencies often have a range of technology solutions that need to be better integrated to deliver clear outcomes. The Cirrus V2X Platform offers a scalable, cloud-based approach to managing the connected vehicle ecosystem. From data to devices, Cirrus connects traffic management tools together to deliver clarity of operations and confidence of results.
Cirrus by Panasonic provides modern tools like freight priority at traffic signals, offering a virtual “express lane” for freight in key locations such as outside a warehouse or at a port to make sure trucks can meet their delivery goals in a safe and efficient manner. Our expertise working with departments of transportation means carriers don’t need to deal with complicated paperwork or long project timelines to access these benefits.
Transit signal priority helps keep routes on time, every time. Coupled with advanced business logic and complete data analytics tools, transit operations find improved schedule reliability, increased ridership, improved safety and more clarity about performance.
Commercially Scalable & Cloud Ready
The Cirrus by Panasonic connected vehicle platform is built on the cloud, so it scales with your operations. Designed as a commercial solution, Cirrus brings the best field-tested approaches to transit, fleets, IOOs and first responders, all backed by Panasonic’s more than 100 years of development experience.
Combine Multiple Data Systems
Connected vehicles means more than just telematics or V2X or 5G. Your solutions should reflect the combined opportunities of the full range of modern communication advances. Layer data from both existing and new sources, get insights only possible from a collaborative approach, and make data available to all stakeholders simultaneously with Cirrus by Panasonic.
Connected vehicle solutions, powered by Panasonic, are available today. Cirrus by Panasonic is recognized as the most innovative and trusted vehicle-to-everything mobility system in North America. Cirrus is up and running in several states right now, giving operators clarity that their infrastructure is working as intended and confidence that their investments are delivering value right now.
