    Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have emerged as a phenomenon of the twenty-first century with numerous kinds of sensor being developed for specific applications. The origins of WSNs can, however, be traced back to the early days of connectivity between computers and their peripherals. Work with distributed sensor networks is evidenced in the literature during the latter part of the s. It includes emergency calls to ; dispatch of emergency personnel to the scene of an illness or trauma; and triage, treatment, and transport of patients by ambulance and air medical service. The speed and quality of emergency medical services are critical factors in a patient’s ultimate outcome.

    Many Israeli innovations introduced over the past few years have attracted attention during the coronavirus crisis. Some offer immediate solutions to crisis-related problems, such as digitizing transit to mobilize commuters more efficiently and safely, while others address the need to improve air quality to aid respiratory health. The health effects of mobile source air pollution affect millions of people, especially people who live near busy roads. The environmental impacts include haze in many parts of the U.S., including many of our national parks and wilderness areas, and the acidification of lakes and streams.

For Intelligent Transport, Laurent Kocher, Keolis Group’s Executive Vice President – Marketing, Innovation and Services, discusses the impact of mobile and digital technologies on public transport and how to leverage these innovations to improve the customer experience.

According to International Air Transport Association (IATA) data, despite the fact that the share of air transport makes up just 2% of all freight traffic, with practically all the rest being transported by ship, airfreight accounts for 35% of international transportation based on value. Transportation is one of the central issues for city planners of today’s metropoles.

With an ever-growing population and rising demand to get from Point A to Point B in the most comfortable and quickest fashion, inventors are competing for the most brilliant idea that will revolutionize transportation. There is a new opportunity for public transport to now play an important role in promoting a better balance.

It can achieve this through more active promotion of clean vehicles, provision of quality travel alternatives in public transport, and promotion of non-motorized modes such as walking and cycling to enhance overall health and wellbeing.
