EP24 – Cities Confront the Challenges of Traffic Congestion

Caroline Arnouk is CEO of OPA Technologies, a Montreal-based startup that is meeting the needs of both city transportation managers and citizens alike with publishing near-real time traffic congestion information directly. The sources of data related to road closures, construction sites or other assets under repair come directly from city engineers using an interface developed by OPA. OPA is using geospatial technology to gather and publish these data so that vehicle traffic can flow more smoothly and citizens become a little more friendly on the highway.
