Rekor’s traffic management technology at the heart of Israel’s highway project
Rekor Systems’ platform has been selected as the core technology for a major Israeli smart road infrastructure program.
The Rekor One traffic management solution will serve as a real-time intelligence base for Netivei Israel, Israel’s national transport infrastructure company, to improve road safety, congestion and inter-agency collaboration.

The joint program, launched by Netivei Israel in collaboration with Israel Living Lab Consortium and the Israel Innovation Authority, designates the Rekor One Traffic Management solution as a platform to foster data accessibility and improve traffic congestion and road safety on the Israel’s main coastal highway.
Rekor’s traffic management solution brings together digital and physical infrastructure to extract as much road and environmental data as possible. The project will integrate several Rekor edge-based optical road sensors parked along the roadway and consolidate this real-time traffic analysis data with seven other real-time datasets, including dashboard camera footage. on-board, transit analytics, video footage of road incidents and traffic enforcement capabilities to detect violations. Data partners include Nexar, Moovit, AD Knight, HopOn, SaferPlace, Tomorrow.io and Blue White Robotics (BWR).
The year-long project is one of the largest public-private collaboration initiatives in Israel’s transportation space to date and will generate approximately $300,000 in revenue for Rekor.
“This is one of Rekor’s most significant collaborations with private partners to date,” said Rekor President David Desharnais. “A collaboration of this magnitude allows for greater data capture and more effective insights to better understand traffic conditions and help Netivei Israel better serve drivers on its highways.
The Rekor One Traffic Management solution combines a multitude of traffic management applications, including real-time traffic analysis, route monitoring and response, and live and archived traffic views. Netivei Israel’s Congestion Mitigation and Road Safety Pilot Project involves the full deployment of all of Rekor One’s traffic management capabilities, including Rekor’s Edge series devices to capture live traffic analytics. Israel.
“Netivei Israel, as a national transport infrastructure company, has as its core mission to promote innovation and technology to address transport challenges,” says Revital Levy, Director of Engineering R&D at Netivei Israel. “This project opens the door for entrepreneurial activity and collaboration between startups to allow Netivei Israel to continue to be an engine of growth in the Israeli economy. Rekor’s solution provides an important element to enable effective real-time traffic management.
“This is a one-of-a-kind project involving a collaboration between a public authority and eight cutting-edge technology companies, to solve a real challenge through the sharing of data and technology,” says Dr. Smadar Itskovich, Founder and CEO. from Israel’s Smart Mobility Living Lab. “We at the Smart Mobility Consortium invite more companies to join us in this project and others, to join forces and accelerate innovation through smart mobility collaboration.”
