(NASDAQ:REKR), a leader in developing and implementing state-of-the-art roadway intelligence technology, today announced the unveiling of a series of new and significant capabilities in its leading AI-driven traffic analytics platform, Rekor Discover™. These will be showcased at the upcoming National Travel Monitoring Exposition and Conference (NaTMEC) 2024, taking place June 2-5 in Boise, ID. NaTMEC 2024 is a premier industry event for Federal and State Departments of Transportation, traffic agencies, and roadway engineering professionals across the US. This event will provide decision-makers across the traffic and transportation industry a pivotal opportunity to experience and evaluate the new features of Rekor Discover™ as they gather in person for the first time in four years to explore and experience the latest traffic and transportation technology advancements.

Rekor Discover™: Revolutionizing Traffic Studies
Rekor Discover™, the Company's groundbreaking solution, delivers robust and actionable reporting and fully automates the capture of comprehensive traffic and vehicle analytics. Employing the latest artificial intelligence (AI) and machine vision developments, Rekor Discover™ generates rich analytics from non-roadway intrusive Edge-AI systems that can be safely and easily deployed for permanent and short-term traffic studies. This groundbreaking and cost-effective solution transforms high-speed roadway data into actionable intelligence that can be applied to a variety of use cases. After extensive roadside testing and validation by customers, coupled with production deployments and widespread use across multiple states over 12 months, Rekor Discover™ has fully demonstrated best-in-class performance. In multiple comparisons against other ground truth systems, its high-quality data analytics consistently exceed 99.7% accuracy for the 13-bin vehicle classifications established by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). In addition, Rekor Discover™ provides detailed analytics and reporting on vehicle speeds, volumes, traffic patterns, vehicle types, vehicle tonnage, electric vehicle types, and air quality.

Today, as Departments of Transportation, traffic agencies, and roadway engineering professionals prepare to address new and emerging government policies on sustainability, air quality management, data protection, AI usage, and cyber security for protecting critical transportation infrastructure, Rekor once again leads the way in innovation. At NaTMEC 2024, Rekor will preview its advanced features in the Rekor Discover™ platform specifically designed to help DOTs meet these evolving requirements. These include comprehensive data protection safeguards, reliable and ethically sensitive AI innovations, real-time cybersecurity protection and monitoring capabilities, and new sustainability and air quality index analytics from traffic and congestion. With these capabilities, Rekor empowers agencies to comply with new regulations and optimize the efficiency and sustainability of roadways and communities.

"In just over a year since Discover was deployed for production use at scale, we are thrilled to hear from our customers that our solution is delivering unparalleled accuracy, safety, and cost advantages compared to legacy traffic data collection methods," said David Desharnais, President, and CEO of Rekor. "As new government policies in sustainability, AI, data protection, and cybersecurity emerge to safeguard critical transportation infrastructure, our advanced capabilities continue to empower DOTs and traffic agencies to meet these evolving requirements while enhancing the efficiency and sustainability of their transportation systems."
