USPS looks to rush in delivering with smart city technology and CMU

Out of the five possible pilot programs, two of these would occur in Pittsburgh, partnering with Carnegie Mellon University. One of the projects would be placing CMU-developed software and cameras in some USPS vehicles, to study road conditions and identify potholes and cracks. The other would attach accelerometers to postal transportation, in order to detect vibrations during bridge crossings on normal vehicle routes. The data collected would assist in monitoring conditions of the infrastructure. The city’s light rail actually already uses this technology.
