Better Vision Zero Safety Planning for Canadian Provinces and Cities
On any given provincial or local road network, there are locations with higher numbers of incidents. By analyzing crash and other relevant data, provinces and cities can diagnose problem areas and better target countermeasures to reduce these incidents. This is an essential step of effective Vision Zero planning. While it sounds easy enough, the practical reality is not so simple. Most crash and road network datasets are static and 2-dimensional, limiting agencies' analytical and diagnostic capabilities. Access to richer, more accurate information is critical to targeting the most effective countermeasures and prioritizing safety projects. Hexagon wants to optimize Vision Zero programs for provinces and cities by fusing disparate data sources into a holistic approach to data-driven safety planning. This demonstration, we will show how data sources and enabling technology can lower costs associated with diagnosis.
