Live Data to Make Dumb Assets Smart

Altus Group saw the opportunity to digitize the traffic control sector, to turn thousands of existing ‘dumb’ assets into smart sensors. Partnering with technology providers like Nearmap, and UK-based HRS, Altus is creating digital twins that will transform traffic control. Extracting data from sensors aims to tell a real-time story of the situation on the ground.
