Blyncs Sensors make their debut at Snowbird Ski Resort

On Sunday, January 11th, 2015 Blyncsy came to Snowbird Ski Resort, just outside of Salt Lake City, Utah. Our first Blyncs sensor made its debut on the chickadee run, allowing Blyncsy to get a feel for deploying in remote environments under extreme weather conditions.

After the first 24 hours, all systems were up and running flawlessly. This initial deployment was a test to allow Snowbird Ski Resort to see the value and power of the Blyncsy ecosystem in generating data for skier traffic and visualizing the demand that mountain traffic is placing on resort equipment. 

Blyncsy has primed this deployment for the height of the ski season, allowing the Blyncsy team to understand the impact of snow and weather conditions on the quality of our data and evaluate any potential hiccups Blyncs sensors might face. 

Blyncsy gets its first customer

The Blyncsy team is excited to announce its first customer, the University of Utah, and the launch of the University of Utah Blyncsy Systems and Services™ insights platform. An initial deployment of five Blyncs sensors is helping the University to understand the flow of traffic in and around campus, from pedestrians and bicyclists to cars and public transit users.

Blyncsy's technology will allow the University to map and model the number of students who take public transit to campus versus those who commute in their own cars, including the time of day, duration of stay, and direction of their approach to campus. The technology will also provide students with the best place to park as they approach campus, and help tailgaters find the best place to light up their grill as they gear up for football games.

Its all about getting U Moving Forward Faster!
