Industry Recent Developments:

This market witnesses implementation of several strategic deals, such as collaboration, mergers & acquisitions, product launches, and expansion. For instance, on April 29, 2022, Integrated Roadways, a leading provider of smart infrastructure technology, announced receiving a $250M pilot project from Lenexa, Kansas. 

The project will include deploying Integrated Roadways’ patented Smart Pavement technology at five key intersections within the city’s central hub. This public-private partnership would enable Integrated Roadways to make a significant step forward in smart infrastructure adoption in the City of Lenexa and Kiewit Engineering, making it the first city in the US to showcase the ability to wirelessly charge electric vehicles using Smart Pavement.

In another instance, on May 4, 2022, General Motors and INRIX announced their collaboration to provide safety data and insights to transportation officials. Companies would work together to develop a cloud-based application – The Safety View, to provide the transport department with data to help them measure the effectiveness of roadway safety projects and their impact on communities.

The collaborated data and technology can help cities make information-driven decisions about areas that need to be addressed and responded to. The new application can combine crashes, vehicles, and vulnerable road user information with US Census data to help them identify hazardous roadway concerns, assess the impact of Vision Zero plans and streamline the federal funding application process by providing required datasets and analytics tools.
