How AI planning enabled the Dutch Road Authority to achieve a 20% reduction of incident response time

“Thanks to Numerico’s dedication and agility we managed to implement an innovative solution for our incident management process in record time.” 

Peter Hoernig
Program Manager at Rijkswaterstaat

Reaching incidents sites faster

With AI planning we reduce the time to reach traffic incident sites, by preparing road inspectors for the next incident and streamlining response when an incident occurs. With this solution road inspectors reach incident sites faster, saving more than 20% response time. In addition 256.000 phone calls per year between the inspectors and traffic centers are no longer needed. The system is used for incident management of all national roads in the Netherlands.

AI planning for field workers

Numerico offers a complete solution for smart deployment of road inspectors and traffic incident response. The solution is offered as a SaaS with back-end integration, SSO integration and client applications for the road inspectors and traffic controllers.

App for the driver

Field workers (road inspectors) receive real-time status updates and advice on where to patrol to be closest to the next incident. 

“The Numerico mobile application really helps me by providing incident information and updates about where I should go next to improve incident response times.”
