Big Data for Better Operations


With increased connectivity and communications among vehicles, organizations, systems, and people, unprecedented amounts of data are being generated that provide valuable information on mobility, travel, and mode choice. What are the issues facing toll agencies today when it comes to business intelligence and operations decisions? And how can tollway agencies take advantage of Big Data? In this session, the discussion around the North Carolina Turnpike Authority’s big data revolution and how they’re using technology to drive business decisions was discussed.
