There are six traffic cameras monitoring the freeways surrounding the impact area. What Blue Prism will do is create a digital team of silicon workers that can provide ‘round the clock eyes on these cameras. When those workers see anything such as a car accident, they will alert a human operator who can then marshal city services such as police, EMTs or the fire department as the situation dictates.
The traffic camera feeds are all publicly available via https://mdotjboss.state.mi.us/MiDrive/map and can be watched from there. The digital workers will live either on an on-premise server or in cloud-based infrastructure.
This solution drives hard at increasing access to mobility information in a very specific domain by letting authorities know in real time where they are needed next with regards to emergencies on the access points to the impact area. In addition to that this system will accelerate the delivery on information concerning congestion at the camera sites which could be used to suggest different routes to residents and visitors.
