Traffic Data in Tampa Gets the AI Treatment

Lane closures, hazardous road conditions, traffic accidents and other motorist concerns in Tampa Bay, Fla., are getting a new set of eyes and analysis, in the interest of making roadways safer.

The city is involved with a pilot project using Waycare technology to better analyze traffic-related data coming from its own infrastructure — sensors, cameras, and other devices — as well as data points flowing from sources like Waze and even in-vehicle telematics, to provide real-time information about traffic conditions.
