Data Science in Transportation

Book description

Hold on, because we’re entering the age of smart transportation at astonishing speed. By 2020, roughly one in every five vehicles (250 million) will be on the road. Within the next 10 years, the very idea of manually operating a car, truck, ship, plane, or train may seem old fashioned, as the overarching trend will be toward greater automation at every level of transportation. Are we ready for it?

In this report, Mike Barlow examines the autonomous vehicle ecosystem through interviews with several technology firms, including Cloudera, that are busy working on various aspects of connected transportation. Vehicles in motion—on land, in the air, or on the sea—will generate and transmit huge quantities of data to transportation infrastructure (roads, bridges, traffic signals), and other vehicles. The data from your car, in fact, may soon be more valuable than the car itself.

Get a copy of this report and learn how the vehicles of tomorrow (or maybe the day after tomorrow) will impact mobility management, safety, vehicle management, operator well-being, entertainment, and even the way cities are designed.
