Parvus Corp., a provider of networking platforms to government and medical agencies, revealed Monday that its hardware will help power a federal automotive standards initiative. Established in 2004, the Vehicle Infrastructure Integration Consortium is an ongoing study by the U.S. Department of Transportation to determine the feasibility of a standards-based vehicle communications infrastructure. Parvus said its DuraCOR 1100 systems will function as Linux-based computer servers for the VIIC's Intelligent Transportation Systems project, which aims to improve vehicle safety and mobility through a reduction in crashes and congestion. Founded in 1983, Parvus is based in Salt Lake City, Utah. The company is a U.S. subsidiary of the Eurotech Group.
