Leveraging Technology for Smarter Transportation

Leveraging Technology for Smarter Transportation

Priyansh Dixit, Program Director and Vinod Bijlani, Senior IT Architect, IBM write about the urgent need for technology-based transportation systems that provide a complete view of transit and traffic data to enable better forecasting, analysis and management of traffic and reduce emissions. Indian cities are struggling with a rising number of vehicles on the road and poor public transportation systems, which will ultimately hamper economic growth and worsen air quality. What is needed to keep pace with the growth is an intelligent, technology-based transportation system that provides a complete view of transit and traffic data to enable better forecasting, analysis and management of traffic and reduce emissions. This will not only offer environmental and quality of life benefits to citizens, but economic benefits in the form of reduced infrastructure and congestion costs and economic development.
