In our connected world, information can also be shared to increase road safety, and that’s just what the Work Zone Data Exchange (WZDx) does. Regularly updated, this data-sharing standard makes roads safer by collecting and publishing standardized information from connected work zone equipment software.
Work zone information such as lane closures, lower speed limits and more can be pushed to Waze and other navigation systems, raising motorist awareness before they reach a work zone.
This information can also be sent to Transportation (DOTs), Traffic Management Centers (TMCs), 511 and more. Normalized quality data makes it easier to analyze, sort, and interpret work zone Information such as planned projects and their impacts. It provides a real-time picture of what is happening in road work zones.
