3M and Mobileye Join Hands to Improve Road Safety
3M and Mobileye have joined forces to improve road safety by bringing crowdsourced infrastructure asset data to transportation agencies via the 3MTM Roadway Safety Asset Manager platform, as well as to advance their common commitments to reduce traffic fatalities and severe injuries, beginning with projects in the United States.
Fremont, CA: Every year, around 1.3 million people's lives are cut short due to a traffic accident. Non-fatal injuries affect about 20 and 50 million more individuals, with many resulting in disability due to their injury.
Individuals, their families, and nations suffer significant economic losses as a result of road traffic injuries. The expense of treatment and lost productivity for individuals killed or crippled by their injuries and family members who must take time from work or school to care for the injured contribute to these losses. The majority of countries lose 3percent of their GDP due to road accidents.
3M and Mobileye, an Intel Company, have joined forces to improve road safety by bringing crowdsourced infrastructure asset data to transportation agencies via the 3MTM Roadway Safety Asset Manager platform, as well as to advance their common commitments to reduce traffic fatalities and severe injuries, beginning with projects in the United States.
The 3MTM Highway Safety Asset Manager consolidates roadway safety assets into a single, simple-to-use cloud-based system, assisting transportation authorities in managing assets like signs, pavement markings, barriers, guardrails, and more. The 3MTM Roadway Safety Asset Manager, when used by maintenance teams and crew managers, enables the scheduling of repair or replacement jobs and reporting and querying capability to execute analysis on digitized asset data. It lays the groundwork for 3M to develop safety analytic tools that improve data integration, prediction, and machine vision analysis.
Transportation authorities require adequate and high-quality data gathering systems to assist them in allocating resources and prioritizing projects in a timely and cost-effective way to fulfill the rising demand for data-driven asset management services. The partnership between 3M and Mobileye will allow transportation authorities to upgrade their asset management solutions with regularly updated asset data, assisting them in meeting their operational and safety goals.
"Until we achieve zero traffic deaths and serious injuries, we will relentlessly innovate products, systems, and services that help bring families home safely, whether that be organically or through partnerships," said Dr. Dan Chen, President, 3M Transportation Safety Division. "We are elated to establish this cooperation with Mobileye; it brings two leaders in their respective fields together to help advance road safety and bring efficiency in managing roadway assets."
