Indianapolis Joint Fire Department Traffic Department Testing

Indianapolis, Indiana Eliminator Generation 2 Prototype Installation

In the fall of 2004, Indiana Senator Tom Wyss met with the President of Collision Control Communications for several hours and quickly developed an interest in the Eliminator™ technology (particularly it’s security features, as described under "Preemption" on the Technology-History page). The Senator was instrumental in facilitating a meeting with officials representing the City of Indianapolis (Dudley Taylor/Battalion Fire Chief and Lenny Adair/Traffic Signal Department) that led to an initial agreement between Collision Control Communications, Inc. and the City of Indianapolis regarding demonstration of prototypes using the traffic signal at the intersection of Ohio and West Streets, and City emergency vehicles.

Upon completion of successful testing by the staff of the Indianapolis Traffic Signal Department in January 2007, this agreement was later expanded to additionally include the corridor of traffic signals traveling south along West Street, including the intersection at the northeast corner of the Indianapolis Convention Center and RCA Dome at West and Maryland Streets. Collision Control Communications, Inc. will also provide emergency vehicle prototypes of the technology (to be used by fire units based at West and Ohio streets), and a remote command/control module to allow manual preemption by a portable hand held unit. The agreement calls for Collision Control Communications, Inc. to provide this technology to the City at no cost.
