INTELLIGENT VEHICLE NETWORK® (IVN®):  MAKES EVERY BUS A SMART BUS

A smart transit system begins with the Clever Devices Intelligent Vehicle Network (IVN). Our advanced technology provides powerful on-board computing and supports the full range of Clever Devices Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) solutions for fixed-route, bus rapid transit (BRT), light rail, and commuter rail systems. IVN is the first step toward a smarter, safer, more sustainable and efficient fleet.

Think of IVN as the “brain inside the vehicle,” enabling transit agencies to apply advanced technology to communicate with customers, keep the fleet in top repair, and collect and analyze the data needed to operate at peak efficiency.

With Clever Devices Intelligent Vehicle Network, vehicles are equipped with a basic vehicle logic unit (VLU) that delivers the processing power and communication with all other on-board technologies. With a single point of log-on for operators, the Transit Control Head (TCH) provides real-time access to schedule, route and traffic information, on-time performance data, and messages to and from dispatch. This communication technology backbone – via the mobile data terminal (MDT) – allows each active vehicle to maintain constant communication with the operator’s command center.

BUILD ON IVN TO FIT NEED AND BUDGET

The modular nature of Clever Devices IVN system means it can adapt to virtually any existing system.  It is easy to use, can interface to either digital or analog radio, and can be added without replacing current on-board technology. Clever Devices scalable technology allows transit agencies to build on the IVN system, adding new features easily and taking advantage of new technologies as they emerge.

IVN IS IN USE IN OVER 8,000 TRANSIT BUSES ACROSS NORTH AMERICA, AND IN SIX OF THE 10 LARGEST TRANSIT AGENCIES IN THE COUNTRY.

Our Intelligent Vehicle Network is the first choice in on-board advanced technology for today’s smart transit systems. More than 8,000 transit buses across North America are already equipped with IVN, including fleets operated by six of the country’s ten largest and most innovative transit agencies. The IVN technology helps them save money on operations and maintenance, improve customer satisfaction, and operate a greener and more efficient transit system.
