New emerging methods of real-time data collection for alternative transportation models such as highly automated or completely Autonomous Vehicles can provide powerful societal benefits—chief among them is saving lives and providing a higher level of safety for passengers in cars. We’re entering a new age when individuals will participate in programs to provide data creating positive outcomes for all of society. Rewarding individuals for doing what is in the best interest of the group is a new, powerful way to achieve road safety. Data from vehicles can be anonymized, aggregated, and transformed into information that can help all who travel on, build, and oversee the roads, and this is powerful. It can help drivers to make safer decisions based on weather, road conditions, infrastructure design, congestion, and much more.
Crowdsourcing is a method of data collection to help achieve this lifechanging outcome. Crowdsourcing is the practice of engaging a ‘crowd’ or group for a common goal—often for innovation, problem solving, or to gain efficiency. Data is transmitted through various technologies, social media and websites and most recently through the sensors and TCUs in automobiles. With growing connectivity in cars worldwide, it is becoming easier for every vehicle to contribute to the common good of drivers everywhere.
