Design & Technology

As a joint effort between CAPS and ALDOT, the Algo website and mobile app were built with a public safety focus at the forefront. The design is focused on smooth interaction and customization based on user routes and travel times across the state. The tech includes seamless integration with the ALDOT camera network and live access to the National Weather Service.

Our mapping systems integration and data analytics have proven to be a success across the state for live traffic camera feeds, message sign readouts, incident and construction information, current road congestion levels, and weather events. The data analytics and sharing are prime examples of the collaboration CAPS has with state agencies.


Positive impact on Alabama
traffic situations

From construction and traffic congestion to weather and even gameday activity, the Algo Traffic App informs Alabama drivers with ALDOT and NWS updates via push notifications and audible alerts.

Currently implemented in five major cities, the app can facilitate full state coverage and is continually evolving to provide comprehensive operational notifications from law enforcement, meteorologist, and campus officials when it matters the most.
