The GiveMeGreen! app for bicyclists has now been recognized for three awards, including the ITE Transportation Achievement Award for Traffic Engineering, as a joint project between The City of Santa Clarita and Sensys Networks.

The GiveMeGreen! application ... provides a good example of how smart technology can improve safety, decrease congestion and improve the travel experience for a new genre of connected traveler.

Sensys Networks, in conjunction with the city of Santa Clara, California, is honored to be recognized by the Institute of Transportation Engineers, an international association of transportation professionals, at their annual meeting, for the development and deployment of GiveMeGreen! - a free smartphone application that allows bicyclists to be detected as they approach an intersection.

“The City of Santa Clarita is a city with many runners, hikers and cyclists and we are committed to increasing their safety, efficiency and convenience,” Santa Clarita’s Traffic Signal System Administrator Cesar Romo added, “The GiveMeGreen! application, combined with existing intelligent intersection technology provides a good example of how smart technology can improve safety, decrease congestion and improve the travel experience for a new genre of connected traveler."

In addition, the city and Sensys Networks have been recognized with these other awards for the GiveMeGreen! app:

The 2020 Outstanding Local Streets and Roads (LSR) Project Award for Safety or Intelligent Transportation System Project by The League of California Cities, County Engineers Association of California (CEAC) and California State Association of Counties® (CSAC)
2019 Project of the Year for Creative & Innovative Project by the American Public Works Association (APWA) Southern California Chapter

Sensys Networks has also recently enabled cities to offer GiveMeGreen! to pedestrians at equipped crossings, extending the efficiency and public health benefits enjoyed by bicyclists. The GiveMeGreen! app is available for free in the Apple App Store for iPhones and on Google Play for Android devices.
