Our vehicles are in many neighborhoods, often driving down nearly every street.
Once man, Michael Ravnitzky, a chief counsel at the Postal Regulatory Commission, told Federal News Radio that he thinks our vehicles could be outfitted with sensors.
The sensors would have radio links and could gather and upload data of all kinds from "weather and pollution, air quality, homeland security information like radiation levels," he said. "They could measure cell phone and broadcast signal quality to make sure that the broadcast networks are operating properly. they could assess road quality so we know which roads need fixing first."
He also suggests meter readings, meth lab "sniffing," and natural gas leak detection.
Ravnitzky talk abouts potential revenue from such a deployment.
