V2X technology is an emerging crash avoidance system that relies on the communication of information between nearby vehicles and traffic infrastructure to warn drivers about potentially dangerous situations. In a V2X system, both the vehicles and infrastructure have communication units installed to transmit information. The FLIR ThermiCam V2X mounts on existing traffic signals and detects vehicles, pedestrians, and bicyclists at intersections using thermal imaging data. Utilizing dedicated short-range communications (DSRC) technology, vehicles transmit real-time speed and direction data, while the ThermiCam V2X communicates the presence of pedestrians and bicyclists, along with data from other vehicles.

The ThermiCam V2X can prioritize traffic signaling at busy intersections and arterial roads for emergency and public transport vehicles, ultimately improving traffic flow and safety for all drivers. Also, because the ThermiCam connects with existing city traffic systems, city traffic planners can future-proof traffic infrastructure and avoid major investments in retrofitting technology.

“As car manufacturers design V2X technology into future vehicles, FLIR technology is being deployed today to ensure cities are ready for their arrival,” said James Cannon, President and CEO of FLIR. “By detecting pedestrians, bicycles, and vehicles in real time, while also enabling communication between vehicles and traffic infrastructure, FLIR ThermiCam V2X will play a critical role in improving the movement and safety of the world’s roadways.”

FLIR will demonstrate the ThermiCam V2X sensor at Intertraffic 2018 in Amsterdam at booth #10.403, from March 20–23, 2018. The product is available for testing today, with general availability starting in the second half of 2018.

Phlexglobal to Improve eTMF Document Transfers with Adoption of New Exchange Mechanism Standard21.6.2018 19:16Tiedote

Phlexglobal, a specialist provider of technology-enabled Trial Master File (TMF & eTMF) management solutions, is adopting Version 1 of the eTMF Exchange Mechanism Standard (eTMF-EMS) of the TMF Reference Model (TMF-RM) into PhlexEview, the company’s eTMF technology. This marks a major advancement in efficient document interchange and will firmly solidify Phlexglobal’s position as a driving force in eTMF management for clinical trials. Prior to the creation of the TMF Reference Model, there was no universal methodology for the organization of trial data in an eTMF. In 2009 Phlexglobal joined other industry TMF experts to create the TMF Reference Model which has primarily focused on organizing the artifacts of a clinical trial. While the TMF-RM has aided in the organization of artifact, the transfer of TMF to trial sponsors or contract research organizations has often required a significant amount of mapping and manipulation. Phlexglobal has extensive experience migrating millions of TMF
