When you find yourself in a broken down vehicle on the expressway, what do you do?
When you’ve lost your mobile phone or wallet along the busy expressways, who do you call?
Call EMAS! Presenting the Guardians of the Expressway — the team handling the Expressway Monitoring Advisory System (EMAS). For over 20 years now, the team has kept our expressways safe and the traffic smooth. It helps that they have superpowers too. Well, sort of!
It comes in the form of a smart traffic management tool called EMAS, which utilises sensors, cameras and automation to monitor and direct traffic.
Imagine a super-smart computer that can detect traffic incidents on the expressways and create smoother rides for motorists in real-time. By detecting vehicle breakdowns, traffic congestions and accidents, the system keeps roads clear and safe by alerting the authorities to obstructions along the expressways.
Talk about traffic-stopping technology. Here’s how it works.
