Ayalon Highway, which extends from the north of Israel and terminates near Palmahim beach, is a major freeway. It is also slated to undergo construction soon. Netevei Ayalon’s partnership with Waycare, a startup focused on solutions for city mobility, comes just in time.

New lanes will be added to the highway, as the upcoming construction is sure to carry congestion and other traffic incidents. “As such,” reads a press release, “the agency [Ayalon’s Traffic Management Center] will have better tools to take preventive measures and alleviate further congestion.”

The program being put forth from this partnership will use Waycare’s “cloud-based platform” for improved traffic management. It will also utilize the platform for “AI-powered safety insights.”

In a trial test of the program, a whole 11 minutes were saved in total time clearing traffic incidents. This is significant, since with traffic incidents that lead to congestion, every minute is critical.
