KIRKLAND, Wash. – May 25, 2021 – INRIX, Inc., the world leader in mobility insights, today announced the hire of Dr. Steve Remias as head of product strategy to lead the digital transformation of signalized intersections. INRIX® IQ Signal Analytics delivers unprecedented intersection and corridor analytics in an easy to use yet powerful cloud-based platform designed for all levels of traffic professionals – management, engineering, operations and maintenance.
“I’m excited to join the INRIX team that is bringing signalized intersection maintenance and operations into the 21st century by helping agencies manage traffic signal and corridor performance easier, faster and cheaper,” said Remias. “INRIX already provides hundreds of road authorities and cities worldwide with unsurpassed data-driven insights into how goods and people move – so I’m thrilled to see where we take Signal Analytics to continue improving mobility around the world.”
Steve brings more than 10 years of experience performing transportation operations research and data collection. Prior to INRIX, he was a transportation engineer at the Joint Transportation Research Program (JTRP) at Purdue, then joined Wayne State University as a faculty member in 2015. Steve holds a BS in Civil Engineering from Michigan State University, and a Masters and PhD in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Purdue University.
Steve’s focus areas include probe vehicle data, traffic signal optimization, performance measurement, and using large data sets to solve transportation problems. His past research utilized innovative data collection techniques and modern technologies, and has been recognized by numerous state and local agencies. Steve’s most recent projects include an implementation of signal performance measurements in Michigan, creating the Michigan Congestion and Mobility Report, and using probe data to assess work zone performance nationwide.
“Steve’s extensive experience working with data collection, industry-leading technology and signal performance is the ideal fit as we help customers expand their digital infrastructure,” said Rick Schuman, vice president of public sector services at INRIX. “He’ll have an immediate impact on our efforts to continue innovating Signal Analytics while also helping to expand our other product offerings across the world.”
Signal Analytics is the industry’s first intersection analytics platform based exclusively on anonymous connected vehicle data. With a penetration rate nearing seven percent in many markets, Signal Analytics calculates for industry-defined metrics including control delay, split failures, turn ratio and volume at a vastly lower cost than instrumenting an intersection.
