The Erum Group’s Connected Cone passes the connectivity tests of the DGT 3.0 platform

The ERUM VIAL Connected Cone has passed the MITMA and DGT road tests, has carried out a pilot to signal works in urban areas, and now certifies the connection with the DGT 3.0 platform. to be marketed

The Erum Group, through its subsidiary PF Erum Vial, has successfully passed the last of the necessary tests to verify the correct connectivity of the danger signaling cone with the DGT 3.0 platform, a requirement that is essential to be able to begin marketing of these security elements. In this way, the PF CONE, of ERUM VIAL, has been able to verify and validate its operation to communicate the exact location of the road works, information provided by the platform that will allow users to be alerted about the location of the road works through the roadside panels or vehicle warning systems.

DGT MITMA connected cone

ERUM VIAL’s connected cone, called PF CONE, has passed all pilot tests and verifications to position itself as one of the most reliable on the market. These verifications began a few months ago on the Reguerón Highway (Murcia), to check the geolocation of the cones and thus confirm correct reception at the management centers. The tests were carried out with the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda (MITMA) and the General Directorate of Traffic, through the DGT 3.0 platform.

The second of the tests, on this occasion requested to test its localization capacity in urban environments (which requires very precise geopositioning), was carried out in the streets of Alcoy, within the Sandbox program, with the collaboration of the City Council and the Local Police. The result was a great success, with a positioning accuracy of centimeters, allowing the connected cone to be used to signal and inform about works and street closures.

With the last test passed, aimed at verifying the connectivity of the products with the DGT 3.0 platform for marketing, the Erum Vial connected cone is now available for conservation and maintenance companies, town councils and other organizations that need to geolocate incidents in the via, or notify notices at their management centers.

DGT 3.0 Connected Cone

How does the ERUM VIAL cone work connected to the DGT 3.0 platform?

Once turned on, the cone emits its position through NBioT to the DGT 3.0 platform, increasing the safety of workers on the road by alerting drivers of the section affected by the works. The information also allows knowing the location of the works in real time, which improves the management and control of road cutting times.

The PF CONE connected cone, one of the products highlighted at the Mobile World Congress (MWC), incorporates an emergency light, and provides location or speed data (for work on the move), successfully testing other functions added to the geolocation, such as measuring greenhouse gas emissions. The cones have long-lasting batteries, and are certified in resistance and waterproofness to ensure their use in extreme conditions.
