Manchester-based Connected and Autonomous Vehicle software company Wejo has launched a real time traffic intelligence solution it says can provide critical insights via an up-to-the-minute and holistic view of traffic conditions.
The Manchester based company says the Wejo RTTI solution spots safety incidents on roads using aggregated data derived from millions of connected vehicles. The data can be usedf by roads authorities, civil engineering firms, mapping and navigation providers and logistics companies “to get a better view of what’s happening here and now”. It explains this insight allows for a real-world impact on road safety and congestion within a community using easily digestible real-time traffic data.
The Wejo RTTI solution offers several features, including ultra-low latency, highly granular traffic updates and accurate traffic events, as well as real-time speeds and travel-times for roads. Wejo says this service enables quick detection of changing traffic conditions, identification of road closures and unexpected slowdowns situations, helping the unpredictable become more manageable.
Built for any developer or mobility service provider that wishes to integrate real-time traffic into its solutions, Wejo RTTI is available via APIs and can help car/ride sharing applications, logistics companies and other gig-economy companies improve estimated time of arrivals. It also enables the ability to implement dynamic pricing for congestion charging on routes, at tolls and in parking structures.
“Wejo has always been at the forefront of making connected vehicle data available to all – now we are doing the same for real-time traffic information to help our customers understand, anticipate, and respond to what is happening on roads and highways,” said Richard Barlow, Founder and CEO of Wejo. “Wejo RTTI can empower our customers to shape the future of transport and road safety to drive the future of smart mobility, smart cities and smart living.”
