Pave the Road to Smarter Transportation | Symmetry Blog
Symmetry Electronics works with a number of leading suppliers to aid in the production of ground-breaking smart transportation technologies that are used every day across the globe. Smart transportation, otherwise known as Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), utilizes IoT technology to collect, monitor and manage data in real time to enable safer and more efficient means of transportation.
Smart transportation technologies are being used in cars, buses, ships, trains, airplanes, roads, streetlights and other infrastructures to provide the world with real-time information and convenient automations. Ever wonder how the maps application on your phone can provide you with the quickest route or notify you when there is a hazard ahead? We can thank IoT technology for these valuable insights.
Another valuable use case for smart transportation is asset tracking. This technology is typically used to measure the performance and cost-effectiveness of transportation facilities. Examples include electrical powerlines, telephone lines, large commercial trucks, and railroad systems.
