Smart Work Zones (SWZ)

Work Zone Traffic

Connecting work zone and infrastructure with drivers

Smart Work Zones (SWZ) are an important part of the Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) on U.S. roadways. Work zone sensors and roadway infrastructure sensors work together to gather real-time detection information and send data to motorists and other agencies. More sensors are being developed to monitor the presence of work zones and relay that information to the driver.
