As transportation agencies around the world grapple with post-pandemic traffic surges and the need to improve safety while also building and maintaining infrastructure, so the importance of real-world data has become greater than ever before.
It is timely, therefore, that TTi is to host a free webinar on just this subject in association with HERE Technologies, one of the world’s leading suppliers of real-time, real-world location data for the transportation industry
The event, entitled, Using Reality Data for Safer Roads and Faster Infrastructure Updates, will see five data experts come together to discuss the ways in which the right data can assist transport departments, at 15:00 BST on Tuesday July 26, 2022.
The panel discussion, hosted by TTi editor Tom Stone, will look at ways in which data can be used to facilitate the best and safest traffic operations and planning decisions – with particular reference to ClearGuide, from HERE partner Iteris, which utilizes an intuitive and easy-to-use interface.
In the second half of the discussion HERE associates from Bentley Systems and WSP will focus on a case study of the Interstate Bridge Replacement Program in Oregon and Washington state, and reveal how HERE Lidar and traffic data is combining with digital twin technology to enable faster, better decisions, saving time and reducing costs in this project.
“I’m really excited to be hosting this discussion,” says Stone. “The interest levels we see in the power of data to assist traffic management are continually growing. The agencies who get the edge are the ones who know how to use data in the smartest way. This webinar will help enable that. And with the opportunity for a live Q&A at the end, attendees will have the chance to get their own personal questions answered by the experts.”
