REECE  Capabilities

Stream classifier, weigh-in-motion and other roadside sensor data via wireless or other network media.

Provide real-time streaming of data for supported devices.

Low power budget allows unit to be powered by solar power.

Solar power and wireless communications provides electrical isolation from the grid, reducing faults from lightning strikes.

Connect arbitrary sensors to the RS-232 or USB ports, or one of the 16 analog-to-digital converters, allowing the collection of video, temperature, weather data, or other custom data.

  • Provide a local computing environment for local pre-processing of and response to data,
    if desired.




The Roadside Embedded Extensible Computing Equipment (REECE) project was originally conceived by the Oklahoma Department of Transportation in order to bring wireless capabilities to their state-wide network of permanent count sites in an attempt to cut deployment and operation costs. Beginning in January 2006, the project deployed its first prototype in the late Spring of that year. By the end of the year, the system was considered a success with future deployment to additional sites in the pipeline.

The project team was able to deliver more than just wireless capability, however. The REECE platform is a highly adaptable computing system capable of adapting many network types, from cellular to fiber, and can accept arbitrary sensor types through its multichannel analog to digital converter. Additionally, this highly flexible system has a small power budget and can often be installed for less than the cost of installing a telephone line at a newly installed site.

Currently beginning its third year, the project has currently deployed to approximately 30 sites, and will finish converting the majority of Oklahoma's 80+ permanent classification sites by year-end 2009.
