Using detection technology to make infrastructure and roads safer

23 June 2021


User safety is the top priority for road and traffic authorities the world over as many cities and regions look to target zero road accidents during the next 10-15 years.

The rapid advent of technology in the transport sector in the last five years has improved safety standards and helped support policymakers and legislators in creating new regulation in transport, served by the lessons of the past.

 With incident detection hardware and software having played a starring role in some of these changes, while helping to avoid repeats of previous mistakes, this webinar will examine how this rapidly advancing technology is making infrastructure smarter and roads safer.

A group of expert panellists will discuss:

  • How new technology is helping infrastructure managers to make better decisions to improve safety
  • How better connected technology can improve response times
  • Dealing with the threat of fire
  • How those threats are developing as the nature of traffic changes

Key learning points from the webinar with Teledyne FLIR :

  • Challenges and solutions for quick fire detection in tunnels
  • Rescuing people from dangerous situations
  • Electric vehicles and the challenges they will bring to tunnel safety in the near future
