Short Description

This integrated system, monitoring roadway flooding and traffic flow, can be deployed on a large urban scale to provide real-time, highly accurate data on current conditions. Using a wireless sensor network, this innovative system generates real-time maps that display current and future conditions for roadway flooding and traffic flow. Storms and floods account for nearly 70% of the world’s natural disasters, affecting up to 200 million people per year with economic losses between $50 billion and $100 billion annually. The technology enables local and regional agencies to provide up-to-the-minute warnings and rapid response in the case of an emergency.

Abstract

This technology integrates the monitoring of roadway flooding and traffic flow through a wireless sensor network.
