Data science is smart technology that goes unnoticed
(NewsUSA) – Every day, data and analytics touch our lives in ways we can’t imagine. As an example, this can be seen when you connect to a video call, pay for your train ticket, or order your cappuccino using your phone. Or view spending trends in your bank account using an app or website. Data analytics is also at work in ways you can’t see – ways that make your life easier, safer, more convenient, and more fun – especially when it comes to get to where you want to go. This is because data analysis cuts your travel time, manages traffic jams and creates safer and more accessible ways to use public transport.
When you’re waiting to catch the bus or hop on the commuter train to get to work in the morning, your phone app can tell you if your trip is on time – and exactly how many minutes before the next bus arrives. or train your stop. When visiting a new city, do you use apps to find out how to get to your hotel or landmark to landmark? Data analytics and smart apps make it all possible. Likewise, when winter hits and roads need to be cleaned, the data and analytics can help cities send additional drivers to the worst-hit areas that need to be cleaned using real-time data and also let you know when your street will be cleared of snow.
Smart technology helps improve many aspects of your daily life. Check out these examples of EastBanc Technologies’ hidden technology that makes your life easier.
TRANSITIQ: People want a clear view of all available travel options and expected travel time, and cities want to increase the accessibility and use of public transport. With TRANSITiQ and the power of data, users can see stations, routes, service alerts and even activate location-based push notifications. In particular, the TRANSITiQ technology enables precise forecasts of arrival times at stops along transit routes. And by incorporating Bluetooth beacons, cities can help visually impaired passengers navigate the transportation system safely. TRANSITiQ also collects essential business information for municipalities, including performance reports and other relevant statistics.
CABiQ: Trying to hail a cab during rush hour, or after this evening, can be frustrating. But with phone apps and other smart new tools at their disposal, operators and drivers can locate hot spots and easily determine where and when to place their cars, optimizing services and helping passengers find their route faster. . These tools take advantage of CABiQ technology to analyze historical and near real-time data on vehicle location and trip demand, allowing them to map underserved areas as well as popular destinations and pickup points. CABiQ not only benefits taxi drivers and their customers; it also provides crucial information to cities to help them regulate local taxi services: A central feature of CABiQ is the ability to collect accurate and timely information on every trip and report it to the municipality for analysis and enforcement .
SNOWiQ: Today’s unpredictable and often extreme winter conditions demand a quick response from bustling cities whose residents expect roads to be cleared quickly and efficiently. Simply put, cities need to minimize the impact of inclement weather on commuting and daily activities by getting snowplows and other machinery on the road as quickly as possible. We’ve seen how Uber and Lyft have changed ridesharing. SNOWiQ allows cities to also be responsive at peak times and high demand areas and to use additional contractors to bolster their snow removal fleets. With SNOWiQ, cities can optimize snow removal to reduce truck idling time and save money.
INSPECT: Meeting the inspection and licensing requirements of a large city can be a challenge for local authorities, but INSPECTiQ technology makes the task a little more manageable. Technology allows municipalities to streamline the way they handle inspections of housing and construction projects by providing a convenient way to dispatch and track inspectors. Armed with tablets running INSPECTiQ GPS-based applications, inspectors perform their duties and report their findings, while administrators have easy access to real-time tracking of inspectors’ progress and location to maximize inspection. productivity and minimize response time for urgent inspections.
Like SNOWiQ, INSPECTiQ adds flexibility to municipal strengths and stimulates the economy of odd jobs. Local governments can train citizen inspectors and, when demand peaks, use technology to scale their municipal strengths and optimize service delivery by bringing in additional contractors on behalf of government.
The next time you need to hail a cab or jump on a city bus or need a snow plow to clear your snowy street, rest assured that data analysis will help you get there. Smart technology is already everywhere, making everyday life a little more enjoyable.
