with Connected Car Data
Improve traffic flow with real-time data generated by connected cars
Traffic management is a strategic problem for virtually every municipality. Car data, generated in real time by millions of connected cars, promises to make advanced traffic management systems even more intelligent and responsive. The Otonomo Platform provides a simple path to incorporating car data into existing traffic management systems and algorithms—and reduces the need for costly infrastructure such as road sensors.

Traffic Management Systems Can Use Connected Car Data for:
Real-Time Traffic Management Systems
Improve real-time traffic flows with an accurate picture of what’s happening across road systems and cities.
Active Traffic Management
Adjust traffic signals, ramp metering lights, and dynamic toll systems to account for current traffic flows. Apply temporary speed limits to account for hazardous road conditions.
Improve the accuracy of the algorithms that power dynamic signage with rich, real-time car data.
Traffic Incident Detection and Response
Immediately detect traffic accidents, vehicle breakdowns, and other incidents that impede traffic. Find road signs that are damaged or missing. Alert road maintenance crews and emergency personnel about the need for a response.
Road Weather Information
Connected car data can signal the presence of heavy rain and dense fog, two important causes of accidents and traffic slowdowns.
Public Transportation Optimization
Monitor the road conditions that affect public transportation efficiency. Plan public transportation routes more effectively and initiate re-routing as road conditions warrant.
Road Accident Prevention
Deepen your understanding of the road conditions that cause accidents, so you can facilitate new accident prevention efforts.
