This week, we're close to home! If you've traveled I-4 through Orlando, you know there is a multi-year construction project called "I-4 Ultimate" that is making the already tedious task of traveling I-4 just a little more cumbersome. The Florida Department of Transportation created a website http://i4ultimate.com/ to keep motorists updated on the construction project.
The website includes live streaming video feeds that provide a view of current traffic conditions at two locations in the Orlando area.
The primary camera is downtown Orlando at I-4 and SR 408 (Sunrail tracks toward bottom left of screen, Amway Center at right edge of screen, camera looks southwest) as seen I-4 Downtown Orlando Live Stream.
The other camera is I-4 at Maitland Boulevard (camera looks west/southwest). Visit the FDOT website streaming video page at http://i4ultimate.com/construction-info/live-cameras/.
Beyond the downtown Orlando area, you can see traffic cameras around the Sunshine State by visiting: https://i4ultimate.com/florida-511-live-traffic/
The possible uses of live streaming video are endless. While the webcams featured on Streaming Saturday are niche applications, they support our belief that live streaming video can be used in nearly any situation that helps businesses, organizations and governments connect with their audiences.
