It will be possible to carry optimal cargo in maritime transport, to precisely measure and repair road depressions or to use a linked travel service home from the cottage. In future, data and shared information will ensure more effective, punctual and safer journeys. The intelligence of the platform will spread throughout the whole travel chain, from the route to the end user.
"Sensors embedded in the infrastructure, measuring devices and cameras will generate an increasing amount of accurate data", says Director Jan Juslén.
An exact situation picture helps us to allocate maintenance and repair actions precisely. In addition to more effective infrastructure management, we are also able to monitor traffic more thoroughly and share the gathered information. "Information about exceptional situations, weather conditions, accidents and congestions is processed and distributed to other targeted road users in advance. Situations like these, as well as data collection by crowdsourcing, are now piloted in the NordicWay and Aurora projects,” says Juslén.
