Technology Integration: Revolutionizing Public Transport- Post Pandemic

Home / Blog / Technology Integration: Revolutionizing Public Transport- Post Pandemic

Transformative transportation technology has made it possible for us to experience feats in travel that may have otherwise not been possible. We have facilitated significant breakthroughs in transportation through technology, which is regarded as an enabler of societies. We have grown accustomed to public transit innovations from bullet trains, air buses, electric cars, and autonomous vehicles through the years.

But technology is continually evolving, and there is so much more room for improvement and change. The future of transportation looks promising. And when the time comes to leave the current health crisis behind, industries that rely heavily on transportation will have to integrate transportation technology into their infrastructure, especially within public transport. 

Let’s take a closer look at some transportation technologies that will undoubtedly change public transportation for the better. 

Smart Vehicles

Smart cars exist for one reason – to make people’s lives easier. Besides this, these AI-powered vehicles are fuel-efficient, sustainable, and, most of all can be made autonomous. Today, several cities, including Dubai, Singapore, Copenhagen, and Paris, benefit from driverless public trains. Autonomous vehicles have made public transportation efficient, effectively reducing human error. While there still may be a long way to go before we see fully autonomous public utility vehicles occupying our highways, we are headed towards that future anytime soon. 

New And Improved GPS & Tracking Services 

While the technology behind the global positioning system or GPS has been around for a long time, there is an immense disparity in functionality between earlier models and the new versions today. The navigation system has experienced several updates over several years. 

Before introducing more accurate systems and technologies, GPS functions were only limited to calculating mileage and providing ETA. Today, however, GPS is not only the most precise navigation system, but it is also effortlessly the most versatile yet. GPS functions today are highly adaptable to changing traffic and weather conditions, as well.

5G Technological Integration In Transportation Infrastructures

Communication technology is integral in creating an effective public transport system and better transportation management, especially in developing countries. 5G technology has several transportation applications, including improving road safety and vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication. 

Public utility vehicles integrated with 5G technology can communicate better with traffic infrastructures such as toll gates, bridges, traffic lights, and bus stops. This connectivity will enable public vehicles to react better to the road ahead even before reaching a particular destination. This further improves road safety not just for commuters but for private cars as well. Overall, 5G brings incredible possibilities in improving public transportation for everyone.

Transport technology also benefits private transport services and industries that include transportation as an integral component of their operations, such as events management. Transportation is crucial to produce a successful event. Fortunately, event transportation consultants provide the latest transport technologies to utilize in events, including concerts, sports tournaments, and conferences. At MOTUS | ONE, we can provide our clients access to these technologies helping them thrust their events forward to success.
