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. Otonomo’s car data for smart cities enables you to create a wide variety of accurate, optimized, data-driven solutions for better transportation, mobility, and safety. 

Interested in getting connected car data for your smart city?

  • Global Coverage

    Access a unified dataset from multiple OEM and fleet sources through a single integration, with an easy-to-use API.

  • Enriched Datasets

    With unique technology to aggregate, cleanse, and reshape car data, you can focus on your own innovations.

  • Unique Aggregations

    Trip aggregations, events, and precise polygons, which assign meaningful locations to geohashes, simplify analyses and machine learning algorithms.


Smart Cities Can Use Connected Car Data for:

  • Traffic Management

    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.
  • Parking Services

    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.
  • Accident Detection

    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

    Observe fuel states or remaining charge on electric vehicles. Alert drivers and guide them to the best fueling facility. Detect fuel theft.
  • Road Usage Tax

    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.
  • Emissions Management

    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.
