Introducing Miovision Central – Better Data, Smarter Decisions

Transportation data projects can get complicated. I know this because in my time at Miovision, we’ve delivered data to over 10,000 municipalities worldwide and counted almost 3 billion cars. That’s all of the cars on earth … three times. In the process, we have helped to set a new standard for the quality and trustworthiness of traffic data used to make significant planning and engineering decisions that shape the places we live. Enter Miovision Central.

How Technology Mega Trends are Impacting Traffic Control

Miovision’s CEO, Kurtis McBride, recently attended the Canadian Institute of Transportation Engineers (CITE) and the Texas Institute of Transportation Engineers (TexITE) meetings where he spoke at both shows.
Currently there are four mega trends in technology that impact traffic control:

  • Changes in computing power, cloud computing
  • Changes in wireless communications
  • Increase in mobile devices
  • NTCIP standards – their adoption is opening new opportunities

All four of these trends have either started to impact traffic control or are currently being developed to be utilized in the future.
