NoTraffic’s Chief Business Officer Norman Tutnauer went LIVE in Times Square, New York City with Nasdaq TradeTalks host Jill Malandrino to talk through the much-needed benefits of transforming our cities low tech infrastructure.
For those commuting from New York, Connecticut, and New Jersey, traffic is a topic of great interest and the concerning rise of traffic related deaths in its highest leap since the 1940’s made for an interesting conversation starter. Together they discussed what they thought were the pandemic-based reasons behind this stark rise in numbers.
Nasdaq were keen to know what NoTraffic can do to improve the safety on our roads and Tutnauer explained that whereas cars offer advanced technology, the infrastructure around them is the same as it’s been in the last 50 years.
‘’We need to be talking steps to introduce some advanced technology into the infrastructure itself to increase the safety levels’’.
He went on to say if cities can look at intersections and predict where the red light runners and wrong way drivers are going to be, they can suddenly work at a real time basis and this is something that couldn’t have even been dreamt about 10 or 15 years ago. Road traffic safety is at the heart of the work that is done at NoTraffic. The belief is that digitizing and investing in our infrastructure is an essential first step and will play an important role in supporting traffic safety services in the future.
Keen to know how the NoTraffic autonomous traffic management system works, Malandrino learnt the solution benefits and where our platforms are active today in the US. On discussing how this technology will grow in the next 2-3 years, Tutnauer confirmed that the key focus areas for any city are to improve safety, cut CO2 emissions and reduce congestion. The NoTraffic system has an important role in all these three priorities and exactly where they want to be supporting cities going forward.
