Data Infrastructure for Smarter Cities
With nearly 500 cities with populations of 1M or more, the world is entering an era of hyper-urbanization—as half the world’s populace inhabit these areas. As a result of this population explosion, and exponential increases in individual travel and freight shipment, cities are faced with worsening congestion—and the serious challenge of optimizing the performance of their existing surface transportation networks.
Today, these vital networks are all bone and muscle—roadways, bridges, tunnels, parking structures, traffic signals, etc. Sensys Networks provides the “nervous system” of networked wireless sensors, continually measuring the vital signs of this critical infrastructure—and providing the analytical foundation for:
- Performance measures to guide policy and investment decisions
- Real-time traffic and infrastructure monitoring to optimize mobility
- Accurate and reliable traveler information systems
- Enhanced incident response
- Informed decision making
