Connected Car Data
for Smart Cities
Fine-tune your operations with richer vehicle datasets
Smart cities offer a long-term vision for making urban areas less congested, reducing their environmental footprint, and improving quality of life. Connected cars produce data that can inform solutions transforming the smart city vision into reality. With Otonomo, you can create a wide variety of accurate, optimized, data-driven solutions for better transportation, mobility, and safety.
Smart Cities Use Cases
Use connected car data, in combination with Internet of Things (IoT) sensor networks, to keep traffic flowing. Develop richer data inputs for real-time traffic flow optimization, efficient traffic light controls, parking space identification, public transport, and road congestion and condition notifications.
Drastically cut down on one of the most significant causes of pollution and congestion in urban areas: searching for parking. Use cameras and sensor data from connected cars and access roads for predictive parking or parking based on cost or availability. Eliminate hours of wasted driving time.
Use car sensors to detect accidents in real time to save lives. Based on connected car data, accident detection systems can determine what course of action is required and send precise GPS coordinates, crash impact data, and other critical information to first responders.
Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure
Let drivers pay for their use of roadway infrastructure based on distance traveled. Car data solves the problem of declining fuel tax collections as EVs become widely adopted and allows for precise, convenient, and fair payment for road usage.
Road Usage Tax
Observe fuel states or remaining charge on electric vehicles. Alert drivers and guide them to the best fueling facility. Detect fuel theft.
Systematically manage emissions, intelligently control idling areas, optimize parking, and analyze greenhouse gas emissions. Create data-driven simulations to drive short-term and long-term planning.
