Intel’s Doug Davis testifies before a Senate subcommittee on the topic of “How the Internet of Things (IoT) Can Bring U.S. Transportation and Infrastructure into the 21st Century.”

Transportation is among the most promising sectors for the Internet of Things (IoT). By converting vast amounts of data into meaningful and actionable intelligence, IoT can help solve many of modern society’s automotive safety, transportation efficiency, mobility and infrastructure challenges.

IoT is rapidly enabling innovations like connected cars, smart fleet management, intelligent transportation infrastructure and self-driving (autonomous) cars. In fact, almost half of Americans aspire to live in a driver-less city where cars, buses and trains operate intelligently and automatically without people driving them, and more than one-third expect a driver-less city by 2024.

In order to advance more quickly, greater public-private collaboration is needed. To bring this message to Washington, Doug Davis, senior vice president and general manager of the IoT Group at Intel Corporation, testified at a Senate subcommittee hearing on “How the Internet of Things (IoT) Can Bring U.S. Transportation and Infrastructure into the 21st Century.” Together with a group of leading industry experts, Davis shed light on how businesses and government can work together to enhance transportation technology and infrastructure to keep the U.S. at the forefront of global innovation.
