Manchester-based connected vehicle data company Wejo has launched a new web-based Software as a Service platform to provide insights into travel patterns.
Wejo Studio analyses data from millions of connected vehicles and translates billions of data points in near real-time into what the company calls game-changing traffic and journey insights for all business users to leverage.
It says organisations – from public sector transportation departments to real estate companies to fleet and logistics companies and beyond – can “unlock a deeper understanding of mobility trends, enabling them to make smarter decisions faster, innovate and solve problems more effectively”.
It says the software offers a series of products:
- Intersection Performance: Help traffic planners quickly understand how drivers move through intersections; visualize turning movement counts, turning movement ratios and peak-hours, filtering by time and day.
- Origin/Destination: Determine travel patterns of drivers by visualizing journeys from start to finish across cities, counties and states; filter by zip code and vehicle type to understand journey trends by time and location.
- Points of Interest: Using specific points of interest, whether stores, offices, stations or charge points to help retailers, property managers and service providers understand where drivers’ travel from, how long they stay at the POI and where they go when they leave.
- Waypoints: Select roads, public infrastructure, billboards or other waypoints that vehicles may pass by to make better decisions on road management, traffic planning or marketing communications by identifying the type of vehicles and the approximate start and end of their journeys.
- Historical Traffic Patterns: Identify congestion bottlenecks, see how vehicle density varies through time, understand average driving speed and travel times and get a good understanding of mobility pain points across the road network.
“We heard loud and clear from customers in many sectors that they saw the tremendous value in CVD but didn’t have a cost-effective and efficient way to harness its power. We’re thrilled to offer a solution, Wejo Studio, so CVD is democratized to all our customers,” said Richard Barlow, founder & CEO, Wejo. “Wejo is leading the mobility revolution, transforming the way we live, work and travel.”
“We’ve long been privy to inferences stemming from other data sources but never able to accurately test the truth of our findings through the power of connected vehicle data,” added Frank Perry, senior traffic project manager for GHD, a global professional services company that leads through engineering, construction and architectural expertise. “With Wejo Studio, we can directly tap into the tremendous data insights it provides and understand first-hand the big picture of what’s happening within the areas we serve.”
Intersection Performance and Origin-Destination will be available from 8 October.
