In this webinar Miovision will recommend emerging technology and new techniques that will help transportation professionals hit safety targets and get the most benefit possible from funding opportunities around the world – with particular reference to the USDOT’s Safe Streets for All Grant Program.

Techniques explained will include measurement of near misses using kinetic energy theory. This information can be used to quickly deploy cost-effective countermeasures and quantify outcomes shortly thereafter.

Also discussed will be the importance of, and opportunities to use, new technology such as AI, 5G, and multi-access edge computing (MEC) in partnership with non-traditional stakeholders in the communications industry, and how these solutions align with the goals and requirements of USDOT action plans and the Safe System Approach.

In the USA, with over $2 billion currently in play for agencies from the Safe Streets for All Grant Program, and over half of the US population living where funding has been awarded, public and private sector staff are stretched very thin as they are asked to navigate a complex federal process.

Miovision has studied and evaluated the challenges to achieving success in safety programs. In this webinar its expert will reveal key learnings from experiences and relationships with key federal and state transportation professionals in the USA and other partners around the world, revealing how data collection, analytics, and countermeasures align with the programs for Vision Zero and the Safe System Approach.

Best practices to deliver the best safety results will be revealed, with reference to every stage of the Safe Streets for All Grant Program: award received, working on the grant agreement, developing or modifying an action plan, or determining how to relate a 2022 award to the 2023 Notice of Funding Opportunity.

Road fatalities are either plateauing or increasing around the world. In the USA the annual figures have shot up by 10,000 over the past decade, to nearly 43,000 deaths per year. Miovision will provide recommendations for reversing this trend, once and for all.

Key learnings from this webinar will be…

1. Understanding the need to acquire and use higher quality data to deploy safety counter-measures – why today’s crash records don't tell the complete story.
2. How artificial intelligence and kinetic energy theory can identify and evaluate near misses and how they can be more widely used in safety programs.
3. The importance of bringing non-traditional but highly capable partners and their technologies to the table. Major data companies like AWS provide the networking and cloud resources to transform the data into actions, while the 5G network will enable the delivery of much better results at the 'edge' at the intersections with most fatalities.
4. The concept of multi-access edge computing (MEC) and the opportunities it presents to improve safety.
5. A clear summary of the Safe Streets for All Grant Program opportunities and the challenges to be overcome to achieve success, whether as a local agency and its private sector partners, or as the FHWA staff responsible for delivering the program.
6. A description of what success looks like for individual agencies and the Safe Streets for All program at large, when it comes to navigating the grant events in 2023.
