The new Nodum app will allow civil engineers to programme road closures in order to maximise traffic flow, minimise errors and coordinate the operation with traffic managers and the Department of Transport.
Point-and-click route designer with Google Map integration will also aim to make it simpler to manage and view traffic rerouting, conflicts, and schedule road interventions, so traffic is quickly restored to its normal flow.
The new app uses a “Software as a Service” model so that the project manager can specify all the information needed for a road project that demands traffic detouring and communicating with all parties.
Nodum said its aim is to contain, in a single app, all the information, maps, plans and documentation needed for road intervention projects and effectively communicating with the Department of Transportation, local authorities, and team members in a seamless way.
One of Nodum’s co-founders stated, “Having worked in civil engineering projects requiring complex decisions regarding traffic, we felt there was a lot of room for improvement. The math is very easy: Nodumtraffic.com allows all parties to be permanently informed of the project’s scheduled tasks, coordinating between different companies, contractors, and the DOT and local Traffic Director. This high-level coordination not only provides enormous savings on the project’s traffic budget but also increases traffic uptimes and reduces headaches for the project members and local authorities. Our goal is to continuously develop the platform using proprietary AI technology for full automation of plan designing in the near future.”
