Listen: IoT Impact On Road Infrastructure

 

The internet of things just might be able to make your daily commute a bit smoother.

Yotta, a technology firm in Great Britain, is currently using specially-equipped vehicles to take laser measurements, accurate down to a nanometer, to create a working database of the exact state of road repair in the UK. The fleet of survey vehicles can connect all of the data gathered, including pavement conditions, bike paths, and even streetlights, into a database that can then be used to schedule maintenance in the most efficient way possible.

This technology can not only recognize current issues that need to be addressed, it can also predict future problems, based on statistical performance data.

As new assets are placed into service, they will contain sensors that will improve data gathering moving forward.

The advances in technology that help our homes get smarter, might help turn our roads into a literal information highway, as well.
