The Future Of Smart
Roads

Smart roads or connected corridors are roadways built or fitted with advanced features, including sensors that monitor and report real-time road conditions and WiFi transmitters that provide broadband services to vehicles, as well as special physical and digital twin features that will allow for automated vehicles in the future.

What Are AIVIA Connected Corridors?

Ferrovial and Cintra, together with top-tier global tech firms, are working on AIVIA, a connected smart road initiative which is helping to manage this transition – maximizing the utility CAVs can bring while providing benefits for all road users.

AIVIA aims to create high-speed road infrastructure by developing the blueprint of the sustainable infrastructure of the future for mixed traffic, using cutting edge technology to make travel safer, journey times more reliable and adding value to highway users through enhanced connectivity and the services that come with it.

We are now moving effectively from a vision – designs, thinking and analysis – towards concrete projects in Virginia and Texas, which will be launched operationally in late 2022.

Technology trials on those roads started Summer 2021 – beginning with high visibility markers, dynamic cats eyes, new camera and sensor technology, to be followed by full connectivity coverage for real-time data capture and critical safety messaging and additional services to drivers and their cars.

AIVIA Benefits

Future-proof

Benefits of an Orechestration Platform

Safety first

Real-time incident, near-miss and driver/vehicle behavior detection across the corridor will aloow real-time centralized response including warnings and AV orchestration to ensure safer roads for everyone.

In-vehicle Services

Digital infrastrtucture will unlock value from in-vehicle services from new customer segments and service verticals such as payments, convenience and entertainment

Utilitiy and valiue of CAV’s

Mixed-traffic solutions will maximise the utility, benefits and value of AV’s to all stakeholder groups across numerous use-cases

Sustainability

Optimization of highwaty use and minimizing the need for more capacity with addtional construction will reduce the impact on the environment and minimize disruption

Capacity and fluidity

Full mixed-traffic supervision & orchextration will reduce travel times and increase travel time consistency for everyone. It will also increase capacity and dynamic flexibility.

Extended Connectivity

Ubiquotous 5G and full fiber connectivity within transport corridors will enable services not only to highwaty users, but also to businesses and citizens adjacent to the corridor with the potential for wider coverage.

Scalable
Adaptable

What Do Automated Vehicles Have To Do With Smart Roads?

Today, highly automated vehicles comprise only a tiny proportion of vehicles on the road, however by 2030 more advanced automated and autonomous vehicles will make up about 50% of all vehicles sold. The likelihood is also that in the same period 100% of vehicles operating on our roads will be connected and delivering digital services to the vehicle, driver and passengers.

It will however be decades before every vehicle is able to fully operate autonomously in all environments and conditions. During this transition period and beyond – connected and orchestrated infrastructure will play a fundamental role in maximizing the safety, utility and value of connected automated vehicles (CAVs) to all stakeholders and specifically in complex high-speed, mixed traffic environments.

But there are also many benefits that can be achieved in the next 5-10 years that will enhance the driving experience for users while making the most of current vehicle capabilities. This orchestration of mixed traffic promises to optimize the capacity of our road network while providing safe conditions under which all levels of connected vehicles can travel safely and more efficiently.
