I'm off to Houston for the annual meeting of the Intelligent Transportation Society of America (ITSA).

On Monday, I will be speaking on a panel on next-generation standards and architecture for Intelligent Transportation systems. Also present on that panel will be senior members of the U.S. Department of Transportation.

SQLstream is helping to simplify how traffic information is collected, analyzed, and acted upon in real time. In one application, SQLstream is gathering information from a fleet of 7,000 vehicles with GPS sensors and using that information to build a real-time picture of a state-wide freeway system. That information allows government agencies to manage traffic flow, respond to incidents, and plan capacity.
