GM Aims to Make U.S. Roads Safer

General Motors and Inrix are collaborating on a new cloud-based initiative to make U.S. roads safer.

The project, Safety View, is described as a software-as-a-service (SaaS)-based solution that allows connected GM cars to provide data on roads, vehicles and vulnerable road users to road transportation authorities.

The data has been tailored to complement the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Safe Streets and Roads for All program, and Vision Zero, a drive to eliminate fatalities or serious injuries on the road. Once received, it will allow relevant officials to gain insights into how well road safety initiatives are working and what can be done to improve them.
