InTrans engineers use big data tools to assist Iowa DOT, improve highway safety

Researchers with Iowa State’s Institute for Transportation (InTrans) are using artificial intelligence and machine learning tools to manage, sort and analyze the traffic data collected by the Iowa Department of Transportation. The idea is for researchers to use the latest computing tools to mine the huge data sets for useful information that could lead to safer roads.

Google took notice and made a video to look at how the latest data tools can improve safety on Iowa’s roads — and could make bus trips safer for Iowa’s students, even when the snow is flying.

Check out all the coverage on it from Iowa State and Google.
