Flocktracker create a standalone platform, including surveyor and tracker capabilities, project builder, credential system, data visualization and survey monitoring capability; continue to promote deployment of the technology in a range of settings; finalize the analysis of its capability for walk auditing in Singapore; develop new collaborative uses in Singapore; seek spin-off opportunities.
Most ITS systems today require the deployment of costly physical roadside infrastructure such as gantries, traffic signals, signs, and sensors embedded within the fixed transportation infrastructure. As a result, deployment and maintenance of ITS systems remains highly costly, and tends to be limited to selected regions rather than island-wide. Next-Generation Wearable(s) will comprise sufficient computing, networking, sensing hardware to enable the realization of truly infrastructure-less ITS, realized entirely with on-board or mobile devices/wearables.
