Traffic management and what’s to come
The future is not certain, anything can change the course we are on, leaving where we end up completely different than how it could have been if things have been done differently. In the past, humans expected amazing advancements in technology such as flying cars, though our advancements are great, we definitely are not there yet. The reason technology has gone this far is because we as a society want to fix things, make things easier, and have things done more efficiently than before.
This includes traffic management. So many advancements have been done technologically, and we can only imagine what the future holds for traffic management, but the technology we have now can pave the way for some of our imaginations to be easily realized.
Automatic number plate recognition, or ANPR, is one of the technological inventions that save a great deal of time and energy for people, most notably law enforcement. If one person or more have the important task of monitoring and recording the details of number plates of a large amount of passing cars in a day, not only will they most certainly get some information wrong, but it will also take a very long time to do. It’s virtually impossible for a person to do this task without having to stop each individual car to write down their number plate information. But with ANPR this process is done automatically and efficiently.
The recorded data can be used for things such as making sure rules for parking are met or even showing drivers through apps on their phones places where they can park. It is used by law enforcement to use for finding missing vehicles in case one is reported missing, and for other related vehicle troubles. This system can be used for so much more in the future.
Long range RFID
RFID stands for radio frequency identification; this is a system that not only tracks but can also identify any object. This system is used mostly for vehicles in restricted areas, to be able to monitor them as they come in or go out of the restricted area. The collected information from the RFID can be used for improving security in restricted areas like gated communities. It can help make the flow of traffic go smoother and traffic congestion will be lowered. The potential for this system is great, it can be used in areas that need better security, this technology is known to improve the feeling of safety, and it is a human right to feel safe.
The future is here
The advancements will only continue to grow, and our lives will be impacted continuously by them. In the sector of traffic management, there are so much more advancements made and being made.
