Autonomous Roads for an Autonomous Future
We are on the cusp of an autonomous driving future. The technology within vehicles is ready, however our roadways and infrastructure are not. We’ve been building and managing roads for humans who can guess and anticipate intricate situations on the roads in ways machines never will.
That's why the way we manage our roadways must be held to the same standards as the in-vehicle technology itself.
There's only one solution- autonomous roads for autonomous vehicles
Why Autonomous Roads?
Innovative Infrastructure for Innovative Vehicles
We’ve been building and managing roads for humans who can guess and anticipate intricate situations on the roads in ways machines never will.
Whether it's a missing stop sign or a fading paint line, infrastructure maintenance issues could cost lives when it comes to autonomous vehicles.
Pieces of the Puzzle
Real-Time Data Feed
Machine Vision and
AI on Roadways
Machine vision and artificial intelligence can deliver real-time and automated insights into the status of infrastructure.
Manual surveys will never provide the data and insights needed to address maintenance issues at a speed to where they don't pose a threat to autonomous vehicles.
A Virtual Copy of Infrastructure Systems
By creating digital twins of roadway and other infrastructure systems, we can finally fully understand what is going on and when. However, the success of digital twins is dependent fully on whether it is being fed with real-time and accurate data.
Communication Determines Safety
Vehicle to Infrastructure Communication
Being able to incorporate these real-time insights and digital twins into the vehicle technology will ensure for safe driving. The key to safe autonomous driving is situational awareness which can only be achieved through data.
