As our transportation networks grow, urban infrastructure and traffic management systems are under more pressure to perform.
In recent years, smart citytraffic management strategies have been driving growth and redevelopment in the industry. The Internet of Things in transportation leverages various connected technologies to monitor, evaluate and manage transportation systems. Operators can make informed decisions that improve driver mobility, while also reducing congestion and accidents. These strategies can also help improve:
Safety. Inform drivers of potential hazards and accidents before they reach the scene.
Management. Detailed data collected in real-time allows administrators to better monitor operations, manage maintenance and identify critical problems early on.
Efficiency. Data can be used to pinpoint problematic areas so adjustments can be made in real-time.
Insights. Emergency services, and issues like congestion, can be addressed in real-time.
Robustel has a range of durable, easy-to-deploy solutions that are perfect for powering a range of IoT transportation applications. From public transport to warehouse management, we have a customisable solution for your needs.
Smart Public Transport
From buses to trains and even taxis, IoT in transportation has practical uses in keeping passengers connected – wherever they travel.
A connected public transit system can make journeys safer and more efficient. Operators are able to use collected data to ensure services are performing and meeting customer’s needs. Using a smart information transport solution, passengers can also be notified of network interruptions and delays in travel. Connecting to high-speed wireless for public transport not only allows passengers to track arrival and departure using real-time monitoring, but online payment options can also make the public transport system more efficient. Operators can also make sure of this data to shed insight into servicing and timetabling to improve the passenger’s experience.
Smart Traffic Management
Busy road networks can be more efficiently managed by using IoT traffic solutions. Using technologies such as sensors, IoT cameras, routers and connected devices, accurate real-time data can be collected from remote locations and relayed to a central server. Operators are able to make informed decisions that optimise traffic flow with smart traffic lights, or adjust speed limits or roadside signage. These smart traffic management solutions are particularly useful when it comes to:
Changing weather conditions
The need to create a fast route e.g for emergency services vehicles
Providing advice on alternative routes in peak traffic hours
Delays caused by roadworks
Robustel’s range of intelligent traffic management solutions are easy to personalise to suit your industry’s needs. Our outdoor ready applications are perfect for space-constrained applications and can be deployed across various environments.
Warehouse and Logistics Management
An intelligent transport system can leverage technology to streamline operations. Managers can securely send stock or up-to-date information to vehicles and staff. Warehouses and transport logistics can benefit from IoT technologies by:
Tracking traffic conditions in real-time. Stock can be moved more efficiently with delivery drivers travelling by less-congested routes or at less busy times.
Informing customers. Using real-time data to track traffic conditions, warehouses are able to provide accurate expected delivery times for consumers.
Prevent equipment failure. The risk of trucks or vehicles in the supply chain breaking down can be reduced with managers able to monitor their machinery with real-time alerts.
Safety is another field seeing the positive impacts of IoT transportation solutions. While technologies like dash cameras and security systems are already in use, there is often delay with footage needing to be reviewed at a later time. A connected smart transportation system ensures that data is sent through a reliable and secure network in real-time. Drivers can check in on their vehicle or transmit data in an emergency to ensure a fast response.
