Real-World Impact of OTS' Technologies
Using GPS positioning data from users smart phones (curently iPhones and Android phones), Green Driver displays a route, together with turn-by-turn directions and optimal (legal) speed ranges to ensure that drivers get as many green lights as possible en route.
In addition, Green Driver makes it possible to collect fully anonymized traffic-flow data that has valuable applications for cities, businesses, etc.
OTS developed Green Driver's advanced route optimization software, as well as designing the on-phone user interface and implementing cloud-based routing and data collection systems.
Green Driver is currently deployed in Eugene and Portland, Oregon, with other cities coming soon. Preliminary estimates suggest that drivers save up to 5% in time and fuel, not to mention frustration.
WARP uses actual weather and performance data for various aircraft and results in significant reductions in fuel consumption while reducing user effort required to calculate maximum payloads, air refueling requirements, etc.
OTS currently maintains both WARP and the legacy ACFP flight-planning system that utilizes WARP for the USAF's Air Mobility Command (AMC). AMC uses WARP to route virtually all of their non-combat flights, generating estimated fuel savings of 1–2% over their previous optimized-routing technology. Since AMC burns 750 million gallons of jet fuel a year, this results in $35M–$90M in annual savings, depending on the price of jet fuel.
OTS has adapted ACFP to run quickly on various platforms, including laptops (instead of mainframes) and is currently working on modernizing the legacy ACFP system and user interface.
