CO-OPT OUR CAMERAS

Optimize Mobility, by Catherine Higgins.

Utah’s traffic authority is lending you their cameras.

The interactive map on the UDOT Traffic website is a great tool for travelers who want to choose the most delay-free route.  Site users can click on a map icon and see a camera view, like the one at the right, that shows real-time traffic conditions.

Now, the new Traffic Dashboard allows free use of those cameras on other websites.

Setting up the dashboard only takes a few minutes.

Accessing the dashboard tools starts with a simple online registration process. The dashboard can be customized with colors, logos and quick-links, and allows users to choose sight-specific camera views. Users also get a button that can be used as link to the dashboard from another web page.

Dashboards will be put to good use at UDOT; all project websites will have dashboards with cameras soon. Businesses and entertainment venues can use dashboards to help customers avoid delay when traveling to their site.

Here’s a demo and some examples of dashboards in use:

  2. Hi, Neat post. There’s a problem along with your website in web explorer, may check this? IE still is the market leader and a big part of other people will miss your wonderful writing because of this problem.
