Federal Signal and Avrio RMS Group Form Strategic Alliance

Public Safety leaders partner to provide a unique value to law enforcement leaders

UNIVERSITY PARK, Ill. , June 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Federal Signal Corporation (NYSE: FSS), a leader in advancing public safety, security and well-being through advanced Automated License Plate Recognition (ALPR), first responder vehicular lighting and interoperable communications technologies, has announced it has partnered with RMS Technology Solutions, a leading provider of surveillance solutions that fight crime and increase security through video, sensor and mobile technologies.

Federal Signal and RMS plan to jointly market their complementary solutions and add unique value to the market by integrating Federal Signal's industry leading automated license plate recognition (ALPR) technology with Avrio RMS Group's Portable Overt Digital Surveillance System (PODSS(R)) cameras and Advanced Camera Sensor Integration Software Suite (AC/SiSS).

By combining these systems, law enforcement leaders can greatly extend operational effectiveness over a wide area. For example, a suspicious plate picked up as a 'hit' with ALPR technology can be tracked through AC/SiSS. The real-time AC/SiSS can send the position and direction of the moving vehicle to the next available PODSS camera in the path of the wanted vehicle. An operations center can then feed this information to nearby field officers directed to apprehend the wanted vehicle.

Matt Brady , vice president of sales at Federal Signal Corporation's Public Safety Systems Division adds, "We are excited to be working with industry leaders like Avrio RMS Group--our customers are already seeing the benefits of this alliance in the field with deployments underway this summer."

Rick Rubenstein , managing partner of Avrio RMS Group comments, "The collaboration with Federal Signal serves to strengthen our mutual solutions and in turn provides more robust security systems to our customers and the public at large."
