Traf*Man – OLIVE VW & AI for Managed Motorways Video

We successfully concluded our UK TSB funded project for the Department for Transport and Highways Agency. We created a short video to help them disseminate our work.
It’s embedded below. We used the SAIC OLIVE virtual world platform combined with Masa Group’s DirectIA Artificial Intelligence software and expertise.
Coram UK was also a key partner bringing their deep domain expertise to help ensure the end product accurately reflects working practices and was easy to use.

Masa Group just posted an overview of the project in their case studies section of their website here.
