In our everyday lives, it is easy to assume that everything around us is perfectly safe. We assume that the charger for our phone won’t catch on fire. We assume that wiring in our house is sufficient to power whatever we plug into it. We assume that the green light we see means it is safe to proceed through the intersection.
It takes a lot of work for these assumptions to hold true, and the NEMA commitment to publishing and improving the Standards in many diverse fields is critical to this.
As Director of Engineering for Eberle Design Inc., a manufacturer of intelligent and safety centric traffic equipment, I am committed to continuing to innovate within our industry to adapt to an ever-changing world. Whether this is through improvements to the conflict monitors and detectors used in the intersection today or through development of new Edge computing devices and roadside units, EDI is ready to develop and deliver reliable, safe, and resilient products.
With our recent acquisition by PPG, EDI hopes to advocate for the expansion and unification of Standards on a global stage, leading to safer, more reliable products for everyone.ei
