$100 million Carbon Mapper project using satellites can detect & measure Greenhouse Gas leaks.
Satellites can also detect chemical signatures for excess salts or fungus on the ground.
And measures intensity of green chlorophyll & track fugitive methane emissions.
This potential to “shake up” the field of greenhouse gas monitoring & verification.
Means now capability to monitor leaks up to more than 80 times the warming power of CO2.
We have got to know the surface conditions and traffic volume on city streets.
There is an obvious if not overwhelming need to monitor street & road condition and maintenance needs
Ultimately, good road surface can increase traffic flow in cities.
Road evaluation & Process can provide technology & process now available.
Surface DNA from Tactile Mobility looks for characteristics of a road or street.
Such as roadway grades, banking, curvature, & mapping of hazards (potholes)
From this data and analysis cities can begin to solve the present traffic congestion & loss of productivity
