Homes are becoming more connected through technology that allows smartphones to talk to thermostats, lights, security systems, and more. Meanwhile, outside of the home, new technology is being developed that will enable cars, buses, trains, smartphones, and other smart devices to communicate with infrastructure to create a safer and more efficient driving experience. The federal government, state and local authorities, vehicle manufactures, and manufacturers of new vehicle technology have been working on these enhancements to improve the safety of the roads.
Not only will this smart technology make roads safer, it will also improve travel times and rush hour traffic congestion for highly populated areas, such as the Mound Road corridor.
The Innovate Mound project is being designed to test and enable emerging technologies such as:
- Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAV)
- Electric Vehicles (EV)
- Advanced traffic signal operations
- Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) like travel time sensors and traffic cameras.
