FOSA wrote to Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg to encourage his Department to move forward with a pipeline safety rulemaking, to promote the adoption of technology enhancements.
FOSA Smart Cities Committee Chair Dr. Giovanni Milione, NEC, was a member of the expert roundtables associated with this CSIS paper: how to promote best governance practices and ensure preferred technologies and standards for global smart cities
NEC Corp has deployed an AI-based traffic monitoring system to Central Nippon Expressway Company Limited. The system uses fiber-optic sensing and AI technologies to visualize traffic conditions
For smart cities, this is where fiber optic technology is key. Data - and the sensors and technology used to collect it - is central to smart city development....The right technology is already here….fiber optic telecommunication cables can be used as sensors; Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS)
researchers at NEC have shown it is possible to monitor traffic using “lit” fiber after separating out sensor and telecom data. Giovanni Milione of NEC Laboratories America, and colleagues used such fiber in Dallas and New Jersey to record the speed of cars as accurately as can be done with cameras
