Geotab has launched a transportation analytics platform designed to provide government fleets with actionable, real-world data to improve their transportation networks.
The new Geotab Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) platform, Altitude, is a single, integrated solution for transportation data capture, data analysis, and data modeling needs. Combining sophisticated sensors and other measurement tools with data analytics, the platform can help fleet managers make improvement decisions to increase throughput, identify and eliminate bottlenecks, and boost efficiency.
Altitude is the foundation for three core Geotab ITS products, including:
- Origin & Destination, which provides aggregate insight into people and goods movement patterns, broken down by vehicle class and trip purpose.
- Intersections, which analyzes temporal traffic signal performance and corridor synchronization efficiencies, broken down by vehicle class and turning movements.
- Roads, which identifies bottlenecks and other traffic anomalies, and characterizes the effectiveness of traffic calming efforts and other forms of intervention. It can also monitor how travel times vary per vehicle class and street segment.
“While initially focused on improving fleet operations to streamline the delivery of public services, our relationships with government transportation agencies have matured over the years to uncover tangible value within their traffic engineering and planning departments,” said Jean Pilon-Bignell, vice president of business development, government and ITS at Geotab. “By aggregating connected-vehicle data across millions of vehicles on our roads, our customers gain unprecedented visibility and context into how people and goods move in their local jurisdictions, without the need for large ITS sensor deployments."
The Altitude platform is currently available in the U.S. and Canada.
