Get Smart: Roadway Travel is the Next Frontier in Intelligent Transport Systems
Big data is now a driving force in safety, security and efficiency in aviation, rail and electricity operations, and it’s about to have the same seismic effect on roadway travel. In fact, more than 63 percent of state governments are currently working to develop intelligent transportation systems, according to ITS America. These innovative safety solutions are tailored to meet the needs of municipalities by connecting people to technology in more meaningful ways. They also communicate with other technologies in ways that allow municipalities to make smart decisions based on the data they are receiving. Big data is here and it is revolutionizing roadway safety as we know it today.
