British smart mobility data company Wejo Group has launched Wejo RTTI, a real-time traffic intelligence solution that provides live insights on traffic conditions using aggregated data derived from millions of connected vehicles.
The Manchester based developer of cloud and software solutions for connected, electric and autonomous vehicle data says its Wejo RTTI can be used by public agencies, civil engineering firms, mapping and navigation providers and logistics companies to get a better view of what’s happening “here and now”.
Ultra-low latency means Wejo RTTI offers highly granular traffic updates and accurate traffic events, including real-time speeds and travel-times. It enables quick detection of changing traffic conditions, identification of road closures and unexpected slowdowns situations, “helping the unpredictable become more manageable”.
Wejo RTTI is available via APIs and is designed to be integrated into third party systems with applications including car/ride sharing, logistics companies and other gig-economy companies that want to improve their estimated time of arrivals. It could also be integrated into a dynamic pricing congestion charging system.
“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 & 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.”
With direct access to connected vehicle data from approximately 12M vehicles in real-time, Wejo is providing access to real-time traffic insights that can “reinforce the backbone of smart city infrastructure and technology”. It also allows users to get a real-time view of roads, highways, and public infrastructure – not just where sensors, cameras and field devices are located. And as connected vehicle data becomes prolific and more cars become connected, both in sophistication and volume, Wejo says RTTI will provide a means for users to drill into previously inaccessible sources of real-time data.
“Traffic and transportation agencies, as well as government departments, can utilise powerful intelligent real-time aggregated data and insights from millions of connected cars to help accurately visualise traffic patterns, queuing vehicles, safety hotspots and road incidents as they happen,” said Graeme Sandieson, SVP Product Management for Wejo.
