Anyone who works with technology knows that most technology development is driven by a need for better efficiency. If a process can be made to require less resources, a technology is developed to assess that problem. When it comes to road vehicles, there are a whole host of inefficiencies that need to be addressed. As it stands now, vehicles get caught up in undesirable traffic, navigate confusing security checkpoints, and overall suffer from a number of inefficiencies that technology is just now starting to sort out. Let’s take a look at how driver cameras and license plate readers can improve the efficiency of how we use our cars.
When we look at some of the biggest sources of traffic and inefficient uses of roadways, a lot of it comes from having to stop. Whether you need to stop for tolls or security checkpoints, traffic always seems to buildup as a result. Building a network of optical solutions, including driver cameras and license plate readers, reduces the number of personnel needed to run these areas where traffic begins to bottleneck. It also reduces the likelihood that you will need to stop your vehicle.
Security is critical but it comes at a cost: slowing things down. At least, historically, that’s been the case. We’re looking towards a future where we can keep vehicles moving freely without compromising security. If you have a secure parking facility that must monitor each vehicle that passes through, an intelligent license plate reading system is able to keep track of cars without requiring them to stop. Better security systems aren’t just more secure, but more efficient as well.
Preparing for the Future
In time, we expect to see automated car technology becoming more robust. That has already created a lot of questions about security. If we ready ourselves by installing the kinds of technology that automated cars will benefit from—technology that lets us scan vehicles—then we will have to deal with far fewer inefficiencies in the future.
