For Decades New York Dreamed of High-Speed Rail

On Thursday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo pledged that 2020 would be different.

Connected Vehicle Data Providing Road Management and Safety Insights

Founded in Israel and with a Los Angeles office, Waycare has developed an artificial intelligence-powered (AI) cloud-based platform that empowers transportation agencies to make smarter decisions related to traffic management and road safety through the use of real-time, anonymous CV data from thousands of cars. In one of the largest CV data integration programs in the USA, the RTC is accessing new insights into road safety, congestion management, and intersection performance at a fraction of the cost traditionally experienced. Infrastructure hardware, such as CCTV and traffic sensors, are costly for agencies to maintain and repair. However, just by driving around, CVs can collect many terabytes of valuable traffic data at a fraction of the cost.
