The report features technologies that have the potential to solve the challenges of congestion, safety and sustainability, including: Inductive charging for electric vehicles (EVs), vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) technology, and self-healing and lower-carbon road building materials.
We hope you'll read the report and be part of the discussion.
The Role of Technology in Securing Vital Infrastructure
“And in many instances, the real innovation is taking place not in the R&D centers of established technology giants, but in the tiny laboratories and rented offices of startups.”
- Innovations in the construction, maintenance, and operation of roads can make our infrastructure safer, more reliable, and more sustainable.
- Asphalt is already one of the world’s most recycled materials... Advances in materials science could see the amount of recycled materials increase over time.
- Smart pavements are embedded with technology that enables them to communicate with vehicles, pedestrians, and other devices in real-time.
- IoT offers unprecedented opportunities to enhance road safety, improve traffic efficiency, and promote sustainable transportation solutions.
Throughout the world, there is a wealth of innovation taking place that addresses the issues of safety; capacity and congestion; sustainability; and efficiency. Exciting technologies are emerging from multinational companies and entrepreneurial startups alike.
