Safer Roads, Less Congestion
Austria's ASFiNAG improves traffic flow with intelligent networks. (PDF - 902.7 KB)
According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, traffic congestion in the United States alone results in more than 4 billion hours of travel delay and nearly 3 billion gallons of gas used, at a cost of US$80 billion a year. Studies also show that for every minute spent clearing an accident from a road, there is a 4-minute delay to get traffic moving again.
Cisco Connected Roadways securely connect disparate intelligent transportation systems to improve traffic flow, reduce roadside incidents, and provide a centralized view of highway systems. This view includes road conditions, traffic, construction, and transit information. You benefit from improved decision making and reduced operating and maintenance costs.
Other challenges that Cisco Connected Roadways can help address are:
- Meeting security mandates
- Communicating with Amber Alert Emergency Response systems
- Reducing the number of incident responses on roads
- Timely clearing accidents to reduce more dangerous secondary accidents
- Compliance with air pollution regulations
The business benefits of Cisco Connected Roadways include:
- Reduced infrastructure costs and improved resource use
- Improved operational efficiencies
- Enhanced security and safety
- Greater collaboration between emergency and transit operators and agencies
- New revenue opportunities for innovative roadside services
