About the Role:
At Rapid Flow Technologies, we are building infrastructure to handle massive volumes of data from intersections operating our state-of-the-art traffic control software (Surtrac). As the network of Surtrac intersections expands quickly, so does the need for pipelines and consumption of traffic data for internal and external use. We are looking for someone to develop both infrastructure and end-use applications to better leverage the rich data received from Surtrac intersections.
The Surtrac front-end, RapidView, creates an experience that simplifies and manages Surtrac for all users. You will be an early member of the front-end team, and will be responsible for creating pipelines that pull data into RapidView across all stages of a Surtrac deployment. This work includes streaming live data from traffic detection and other hardware, adding features through which users can control and set up Surtrac deployments, and supporting development on visualizations of traffic network performance.
About the Company:
Rapid Flow Technologies’ (www.rapidflowtech.com) mission is to improve people’s lives by using artificial intelligence to re-imagine mobility. Rapid Flow is an early stage AI company that was spun out of Carnegie Mellon University in 2015 and is based in Pittsburgh, PA – one of the leading markets for AI, robotics, and autonomous vehicle research and development.
By implementing Surtrac, our adaptive traffic control system, municipalities have reduced the causes of traffic congestion, pollution, and safety incidents by as much as 20-40%. Surtrac is an edge-computing AI solution installed at each intersection. It easily integrates with existing detection, traffic control, and communication systems.
