GEWI to Demonstrate Mobile Traffic Data Entry at World Congress
At ITS World Congress in Orlando, GEWI will unveil a new application to allow government and commercial users to enter traffic data on the iPad. The planned markets for which this could be used are Mobile Data Entry and Data Quality Assurance. Traffic Incident Management and Motorist Assistance are markets also being considered. GEWI will also be speaking on advanced traffic technologies in two sessions, and with BMW will demonstrate a Connected Vehicle service for Local Hazard Warning (LHW) in the Mobility section of the Technology Showcase.
