Smart highways reduce congestion and save lives

Smart highways reduce
The good news is that developments in ITS, the Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and advances in exciting areas such as driverless cars and vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication will help alleviate congestion, reduce accidents and increase safety. As states struggle to balance funding priorities, including transportation, ITS technology and the emerging IoT ecosystem can enhance investments in transportation infrastructure, which is critical to the economic and social
fabric of the U.S. and safe travel. For example, active traffic management, which includes advance notice about traffic conditions to motorists using variable speed limits, lane management signs and overhead message signs, has reduced collisions and congestion in the Seattle I-5 corridor. Similar initiatives are emerging elsewhere. Around the world the ITS ecosystem is making a difference.

10 PRINCIPLES TO DECARBONISE THE OSV INDUSTRY

whitePaper | June 21, 2022

The shipping industry as a whole accounts for 3% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Decarbonising the maritime industry in line with the Paris Agreement is essential to fighting climate change, and key to facilitating the decarbonisation of many other industries. This requires systemic industrywide change, the complexity of which cannot be understated. Many aspects of the transition to zero-carbon shipping are necessarily long-term endeavours, such as the development of green technology for a new generation of vessels. However, certain shortterm changes can be implemented to help accelerate this transition over the coming decade, until such technological solutions have matured.
