Gewi and iCone highlight workzone safety

gewi_0026Until recently, most information provided to the public about work zones included only planned activities. But today, as Gewi and iCone will demonstrate, with the advent of devices to measure precise location, speed, lane closure advice and workers present, more real-time information is available for navigation devices, VMS signs, broadcasters, apps and other systems. By providing drivers in-vehicle notifications in advance of entering a workzone, safety for motorists and workers is increased.

As Gewi points out, the company has been at the forefront of smart workzone efforts with a first public conceptual demonstration with BMW at the ITS World Congress in Orlando, Florida in 2011. The first European implementation of this smart workzone technology was undertaken in 2018.

Today, this technology is available as a low-cost off-the-shelf solution, and Gewi and iCone are demonstrating this technology here at the Annual Meeting.

Smart workzones are critical to the success of the emerging connected and automated driving (C/AV) market. Precise information about lane configuration changes which occur during workzones must be available for the C/AV to operate properly in a fully automated mode.

Gewi is exhibiting this all-in-one workzone solution at its booth and inviting attendees to make an appointment for a demonstration of how the company’s TIC software can be used for workzone planning, real-time operations, and post-construction analytics.
