In the ever-evolving landscape of urban mobility, road safety remains a paramount concern for municipalities worldwide. The City of Alkmaar has taken a pioneering step towards a safer future with Bridgestone’s cutting-edge solution, the “Data-driven Unsafe Road Situations Monitor.”
Challenges and Goals:

Alkmaar faced the challenge of preemptively addressing road safety, particularly in areas with children, to avoid reactive measures after accidents occurred.
