CIO beach reads

With heat waves bearing down on much of the country and people getting in their last bits of vacation, we asked a group of state chief information officers and other government IT officials what they’ve been reading this summer.

New York to install speed-limiting tech on city vehicles

New York City officials announced Thursday the launch of a pilot program to test an active intelligent speed assistance system that automatically slows vehicles in the municipal fleet if they go above a posted speed limit. ISA systems use GPS-linked data to detect the speed limit on a given road. Passive systems give the driver audio or visual warnings that they’re speeding. Active systems, like the one New York City is testing, automatically tap the brakes or make the accelerator more difficult to press if the driver goes over. Benjamin Freed has details.
