Competitive Proposals for Traffic Data Collection

What differentiates the CCS Team from other data collection companies?

With over 50 Miovision Scout Connect Units, as well as other traffic data collection equipment in inventory including DJI Pro4 V2.0 drones, JamarTech BlackCat radar units and tube collectors and over 10 TMC boards; CCS has become a leading data collection company in KY, OH and surrounding states. CCS is the sole distributor for TrafficCast BlueTOAD Spectra units used in many instances for complex O-D Studies. With 7 CCS Team members, small or large projects are not a challenge for CCS.

Isn’t time that you discover what your competition already knows? CCS is your solution for all of your data collection needs. Remember, almost anyone can count cars, but CCS specializes on collecting accurate and timely data … not counting cars.

What do you get from the CCS Team?

Steven W. Cummins, Owner of Cummins Consulting Services, PLLC, will serve as our Project Manager for studies and provide project oversight and QA/QC services. Steve has 27 years of experience as a licensed transportation practitioner, and his company of 15 years has collected nearly 20,000 hours of video data collection. The CCS Team includes administrative office personnel, field technicians that will assist in the collection and dissemination of data using the CCS three Suburbans and office technicians that will review and process all data from videos as necessary.

Tabitha Cummins will assist in the area of adequately overseeing the staffing responsibilities. Chris Boston, a US Marine Veteran and Ben Mills have extensive knowledge of deploying MioVision equipment, as well as direct hands on experience with the operations and construction of traffic signals. Each previously worked for an electrical contractor and were responsible for constructing and wiring traffic signals from the plan stage to completion (both span wire, as well as mast arms). Their technical knowledge will prove valuable as collecting specific data requires multiple camera angles and specifications to the phase operation of traffic signals in the field so that data can be processed appropriately with the MioVision algorithm. Aaron Cummins will act as data processing and reviewing technician for the CCS Team. He will take lead on all data inquiries and research. Finally, Andrew Cummins, a US Army Reserve Veteran, controls the inventory and maintenance of all CCS equipment so you can feel confident the data is being collected with up to date and properly working equipment.
