Wejo launches real-time intelligent traffic solution

Wejo Group has introduced Wejo RTTI, a real-time traffic intelligence solution that aims to provide critical insights to help improve safety on road networks.

RTTI data is delivered via an up-to-the-minute and holistic view of traffic conditions and safety incidents on roads using aggregated data derived from millions of connected vehicles.

Real-world impact

According to Wejo, this insight allows for a real-world impact on road safety and congestion within a community using easily digestible real-time traffic data.

Solution is targeted at public agencies, civil engineering firms, mapping and navigation providers and logistics companies.

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. This service enables quick detection of changing traffic conditions, identification of road closures and unexpected slowdowns situations, helping the unpredictable become more manageable, Wejo reports.

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.”

Visibility into real-time traffic data allows users to proactively recommend safety improvements to road networks, identify urban traffic congestion patterns as they happen and make decisions based on accurate real-time intelligent aggregated data. Users can assess one of the best approaches for future planning and make immediate changes.

The solution also provides accurate insights without human intervention, removing any bias from the research, Wejo claims. Actionable insights derived from the solution can be used to mitigate risks and improve safety.

By having access to intelligent real-time aggregated data derived directly from millions of connected vehicles, users can reduce reliance on the need for field devices like sensors and cameras and reduce the time spent analysing multiple traffic data sources to find answers. It also allows users to get access to a real-time view of roads, highways, and public infrastructure – not just where sensors, cameras and field devices are located.

“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,” added Graeme Sandieson, SVP product management for Wejo.

“Monitoring the performance of road networks can reduce congestion, improve accident response time, and secure the mobility needs of the community.”
