      Rhythm Engineering is a Lenexa, KS-based company that was founded in 2005. The company was founded in a business incubator (Enterprise Center for Johnson County) in a one-room office. Rhythm Engineering's mission is to bring loved ones to their destination safer and faster. The company accomplishes this mission by providing innovative and cost-effective solutions to the traffic engineering community to synchronize traffic signals. Rhythm Engineering impacts about 6,000,000 motorists daily in a positive manner through its innovative technology deployed in 2,300 traffic signals in 31 states and 160 municipalities.

      About 75% of the 330,000 traffic signals in the U.S. are not synchronized. Rhythm Engineering was founded by a traffic engineer in the public sector who was frustrated with the lack of technology to synchronize traffic signals. Armed with a few credit cards and a dream to synchronize every traffic signal in the U.S., Dr. Reggie Chandra led the 3-year focused research and development which resulted in the launch of InSync, an adaptive traffic signal system in 2008. The company came to the limelight when Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) deployed its technology along the Route 291in Lee's Summit, MO. MoDOT retained the services of MRI Global Research Institute to conduct detailed before-and-after validation studies of the InSync deployment. MRI Global report revealed that travel times through the corridor decreased by up to 58%, stops by 95%, fuel consumption by 20% and vehicle emissions by up to 40%. Subsequent studies by DKS Associates in San Ramon, CA and Pennoni Associates in Upper Marion Township, PA confirmed the superior benefits to the motorists in the West and East coasts.

      Rhythm Engineering has experienced an exponential growth curve since 2008. It was ranked as the 64th fastest-growing U.S. company in 2011, 456th in 2012 and 2729th in 2015. It was listed in 43rd fastest-growing company in Deloitte Fast 500 list in 2012. Kansas City Business Journal listed Rhythm Engineering in 2012 as the #1 fastest growing company in Kansas City and Ingram's Magazine listed it as the #1 fastest growing company in 2011. In 2015, Kansas City Business Journal listed Rhythm Engineering as the #19th fastest growing company. From 2008 to 2010, Rhythm Engineering had a whopping growth of 3,389%; from 2009 to 2011, Rhythm Engineering grew by 832%; and from 2011 to 2014 Rhythm Engineering had a 133% growth.

      • InSync uses Rhythm Engineering’s proprietary video detection (up to four IP cameras per intersection are included in the base system).
      • InSync:Tesla uses existing or preferred detection devices such as inductive loops, radar, magnetometers, microwave or other video cameras.
      • Finally, InSync:Fusion combines multiple detection sources. Fusing together data from Rhythm Engineering’s video detection cameras and existing detectors gives InSync unparalleled detection accuracy which can improve adaptive operations.
