Integrated Roadways founder and CEO Tim Sylvester discusses how digital infrastructure can help address America's road safety crisis using the Smart Pavement pilot in Denver, CO, and the forthcoming 10-year pilot in Lenexa, KS as example cases.
Road fatalities and injuries have been rising for 10 years, and for every incident, there are many more near misses and safety hazards. By upgrading infrastructure with digital enhancements, roads can assist drivers and reduce conflicts while ensuring injured parties get emergency services as soon as possible when something happens. Integrated Roadways' Smart Pavement technology uses in-road sensors and anonymous traffic data to monitor vehicle activity and can send automatic alerts to local emergency services when collisions are detected. These same systems can detect and report near misses and other hazards, that otherwise go unnoticed by authorities, helping to improve road design, operations, and management to reduce the risk of incidents between vehicles of all types.
