Road Infrastructure

On the way to a better future with smart and connected technologies ready for life on the road.

Introduction

Road Infrastructure is arguably the most important type of infrastructure in the world and has—in some shape or form—been around longer than humans. While roads have certainly changed in the last millions, thousands, and hundreds of years, the arrival of Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things (AIoT) means the perhaps biggest change to our roads since their humble beginnings.

With AIoT, road infrastructure becomes so much more than just roads. Rather, because of the prevalence of roads virtually everywhere there is human activity, road infrastructure can serve as the primary backbone for the smart city services of the future. For instance, pieces of road infrastructure such as streetlights serve as ideal places for adding wireless connectivity to a neighborhood, delivering insights on weather and pollution conditions, as well as boosting security by detecting and predicting accidents and crime.

Of course, AIoT solutions are ideal for improving regular, traffic-related, aspects of road infrastructure as well. For example, AIoT can help improve traffic flow through intelligently controlling things like traffic lights and speed limits, as well as improving energy efficiency by controlling roadside light conditions based on nearby activity.

In other words, AIoT is vital to the road infrastructure of the future, which in turns is vital for both the vision of a smart city future and better traffic.

Challenges

Road infrastructure faces immense challenges as both a vital part of the overall smart city ecosystem and as a system constantly exposed to the elements. Moreover, road infrastructure’s key part in ensuring the safety of drivers and pedestrians further requires utmost reliability and system stability. Some of the challenges AIoT applications in road infrastructure is up against include:

Environmental challenges​

Environmental challenges

  • Year-round outdoor climates with extreme temperatures and challenging weather conditions
  • Exposure to gases and pollutants
  • Shocks and vibrations

High-performance requirements​

High-performance requirements

  • Storing and processing huge amounts of data
  • Split-second decision making with lives at risk
  • High accuracy with little room for error

Management and security requirements

Management and security requirements

  • Effective remote monitoring of staggering numbers of smart devices
  • Minimum downtime
  • Fortified against any security threats since such threats risk crumbling extremely vital infrastructure
