Safe Mobility

We envision a future for mobility that is safe, efficient, and reliable while being more equitable and sustainable. Metro21 starts with existing transportation systems and works collaboratively with its municipal and equity deployment partners to help them work in a way that improves mobility and safety for everyone – drivers, cyclists, pedestrians, and those with limited mobility options. Technologies such as sensors and cameras mean the traffic signal knows how many cars, cyclists, and pedestrians are waiting. Dashboard-mounted smartphones help buses do double duty by safely monitoring road conditions.  Artificial intelligence and computer algorithms turn all this data into real-time recommendations for traffic signal timing, road repair, snowplow routes and transit planning.
