Vortex IoT’s Commercial Director, John Vinson, joined us at at TRANSPORT Smart Class, South West England 2022 last month to present on technologies for environmental scanning products that can provide real-time condition-based monitoring of both highway and urban environment assets.
To make proactive decisions you need the correct data from your environment, and delivering actionable data is at the forefront of the technologies that Vortex (now part of Marston Holdings) are developing. John explained how to leverage this real-time 3D data to provide notifications and reporting so that you know the condition of all your assets (roads, pavements, kerbside objects and street furniture), can detect potential enforcement breaches (parking violations, for example) and are able to prevent future failure for a safer, smarter and more sustainable city. In addition to continuous fixed infrastructure scanning, his presentation demonstrated that by autonomously scanning the built environment with vehicle-2-infrastructure scanners retrofitted to bus fleets (and applying AI to the data) you can move from reactive to predictive maintenance.
John subsequently hosted deeper dive roundtable discussions with support from Vortex Marketing Manager, Cameron Kent, and Marston Holdings’ Director of Environment, Nick Ruxton-Boyle.
