From Crossbow’s blog:

Researchers at Newcastle University have been at the forefront of looking into the technology challenges of using these small, low-cost and smart wireless sensors in transport and the application areas where they could be employed. It is clear to the ITS community that the emergence of low cost sensors will open up new paradigms in how we can pervasively collect data from sensors, convey information along fixed and mobile low cost wireless networks (partly or fully formed or ad-hoc) and provide a ‘connected environment’ where individuals, vehicles and infrastructure can co-exist and cooperate, thus delivering more knowledge about the transport environment, the state of the network and who indeed is traveling or wishes to travel. This may offer benefits in terms of real-time management, optimization of transport systems, intelligent design and the use of such systems for innovative road charging and possibly carbon trading schemes as well as through the Cooperative Vehicle and Highway Systems for safety and control applications.
