Through using this technology, departments of transportation throughout different cities, states, and even the country, can determine the quality of roadway assets (medians, islands, signs, etc.) and best determine what needs to be replaced, etc.
Jerry added that GE already took this concept and used it to optimize its wind turbines, jet engines and more. Other companies also use this technology to optimize factory floors and simulate various scenarios to improve planning and optimization.
“If you can implement this technology, you can manage traffic much more efficiently and effectively, even where we get to the point where we don’t need traffic lights,” Jerry said. “Our vehicles will be smart enough where the data and information has been fed to them. It’s a beautiful end goal!”
