By the year 2050, the world’s population will be over 10 billion. With this increase, it’s easy to get disheartened about the future of transportation. But we believe in better.
We envision a world where everyone’s roads are clearer, our air is cleaner, and our loved ones return home safely. With our technologies, we’re going to reduce travel times by 50%, reduce transportation emissions by 50%, and reduce accidents by 50%, all by 2050. And we’re challenging all innovators to join us in our 50 by 2050 movement .
We envision a future where everyone, from leaders at the top of the organization to the engineers on the front lines, can always trust their data. Where we can accurately predict and measure the impact of our projects, quantifying returns on taxpayers’ investments. Where we can understand the positive and negative impacts of any decision, and we can collaborate effectively among all effected stakeholders. Where our transportation networks can adapt as quickly as the populations that use them do, offering everyone a better quality of life.
This future is impossible to achieve without comprehensive and reliable information. For years, agencies have relied on narrow data silos that can’t accurately represent their networks. With the majority of signals already connected, a myriad of IoT devices, and millions of connected vehicles already on our roadways, these datasets are already interconnected.
