ALPHARETTA, Ga. & WOODRIDGE, Ill. - Applied Information, Inc. (AI), the leading provider of intelligent transportation infrastructure technology, announced today it has expanded its partnership with Traffic Control Corporation (TCC) to distribute traffic signal preemption and priority products in the Midwestern US.

Applications for the technology include emergency vehicle preemption for fire, police and ambulance services and signal priority for transit buses, school buses, snowplows, and more.
