Today, conventional transportation systems around the world are sustained through the exchange of information. Various types of information are exchanged from various vehicles like buses, trains or planes from the time of departure to the arrival at the destination.
Communication through these modes of transportation is becoming possible through instant information transactions. Basically, the transportation system depends on the exchange of data or information between the various transport infrastructures and vehicles like airports, railways or bus stops.
But there are often complications in exchanging information on some issues in conventional transport systems. The information collected about things like weather, vehicle location or traffic monitoring changes every moment.
However, this process of information transaction will become more modern and advanced in the future. Then it will be easier to collect and use reliable data or information through satellite technology. Basically, this future modern transport system or system is called “Smart Transport”.
Along with data from space through satellites, many new technologies will revolutionize the transportation system of the future. Through this it will be possible to exchange information instantly.
Let’s get an idea about how this technology will be used in the future.
The vehicle of the future.
The smart transport system will use satellite technology to determine the location, speed and surrounding weather of each vehicle. The information transmitted through satellites is called “space data”. This technology is constantly being improved to increase road safety and facilitate the journey of passengers.
Potential adverse weather conditions such as damage to vehicles can be easily identified through space data. For example, if a satellite sees a threat of a storm in a particular area, it will immediately send a signal to the control center of the communication system in that area. From there that signal will go to all the cars in that area.
The vehicle’s satellite navigation system will then advise the driver to take an alternative route or visit a nearby service station. Even if the driver wants to, the information about the area around the car can be collected through satellite. As a result, if the car runs out of fuel or if the wheels of the car are unsuitable for driving on a road, the driver will be notified immediately.
Through smart transport system it will be possible to collect information about the traffic condition of any area and use it to avoid traffic jams. Through this, the driver can be instructed to change the route and go to the convenient road. Again, if a car is involved in an accident, the signal from that car will go to the satellite immediately. The satellite will then inform emergency services of the vehicle’s location.
As it will take less time to travel, any vehicle involved in an accident can be recovered in much less time.
The public transport of the future
Space data will also change the experience of using public transport. With the increase in the prevalence of smart transport systems, it will be possible to control various obstacles on the journey. As a result, travel will become easier for everyone.
In future, any passenger will be able to send a signal to the nearest bus when needed. As a result, the bus will determine the location of the passengers through that signal and bring them. As a result no one has to wait for hours for the bus. This communication between driver and passengers will reduce many problems.
If the train schedule is average, the information will reach the passengers in the form of signal through satellite. Also, if there is any fault in the train en route or if servicing or repair is required, the same will be immediately reported to the maintenance company. This will avoid any major accidents like collisions.
Space data will also be used to maintain aircraft like trains. As a result, it will be possible to ensure the safety of air travel.
When a ship needs sheep in port, a signal will be sent to the port immediately via satellite. Information regarding the ship’s cargo, movement and location will be forwarded to port officials for making all necessary arrangements.
Also through smart transport system it will be possible to monitor and control the pollution in the area around the port. If the amount of pollution is high, a signal will be sent from the port to the ship informing about the latest status of the pollution.
Use of drones
Drones will be used in the future to facilitate delivery services. The location and trajectory of each drone will be tracked by satellite. It will also be ensured through satellites that the drones do not encounter any obstacles on their way.
Satellite data is now being used all over the world to improve transportation systems. If the use of this technology increases like this, we will be able to enjoy the benefits of smart transport systems in the near future.
