Celebrating over 20 years in the Preemption Industry

Collision Control Communications, Inc. was incorporated in 2001 and produces a state of the art traffic signal preemption, transit signal priority, and collision avoidance system for emergency vehicles and public transit called the “Eliminator®”. CCC is an accredited member of the Better Business Bureau, maintaining an A+ rating with the BBB since it’s accreditation. It holds multiple U.S. and foreign patents in the fields of traffic signal preemption, transit signal prioritization, and collision avoidance.

For over a decade our CEO and founder Dave Gross has given technical sessions at both state and local IMSA (International Municipal Signal Association) events to better educate IMSA certified engineers regarding preemption systems and technology.

Collision Control Communication's mission of almost 20 years has been simple; To create a better preemption system at a lower cost. Our GPS traffic signal preemption system, Eliminator Generation 3, was launched in 2016 and is not only the most advanced system on the market but also the most affordable. This year (2019) as we launch Eliminator Generation 4 we continue to build on the success of the company and our systems.

The Eliminator was originally designed by professors at Indiana University and Purdue University in conjunction with engineers and managers at ITT Aerospace, Raytheon, and Magnavox in northeast Indiana.The Eliminator is the only preemption system on the market that can perform all three functions (preemption, TSP, and collision avoidance) using a single unit. It is also the most cost-effective GPS system available.

Meet the Firefighter/Engineer that designed our Preemption System.

However, being a firefighter is only half the story, Adam has spent over a decade designing systems for defense contractors that use Radio and GPS. He knew from his diverse experience that existing GPS, Optical and cellular Traffic Signal Preemption System weren't meeting the two most important needs, affordability and performance.

Could traffic preemption reduce fire response times and save lives? Once overlooked as expensive and impractical, signal preemption has come a long way since the 1970s

Fire Departments

As the call comes in and your department is focused on digesting and learning the circumstances of the emergency and the scene while enroute, traffic should not be a major consideration. Today�s electronically distracted drivers have made the opposite even more true. Motorists already respond to the presence of an emergency vehicle differently but often distracted drivers do not react at all.

Police Departments

The Eliminator Emergency Vehicle Preemption (EVP) System provides specific features designed for Police Departments. Most EVP systems use ETA or GEO windows to define when or where preemptions occur. However Police Cars typically travel at a higher rate of speed than Fire and EMS, specifically faster than the larger vehicles such as Engines, Tankers, and Ladder Trucks.

From the moment an emergency run begins, there is potential for an even greater disaster; colliding with another vehicle enroute to the scene of the emergency. This often results in that vehicle and its occupant(s) becoming an additional emergency incident to address. Many cities have experienced an increase in collisions with emergency vehicles at intersections, but emergency vehicle preemption has been shown to effectively reduce the probability of these collisions by giving ambulances the right of way.
