Everyone wants to get from Point A to Point B as fast as possible. As urban communities continue to grow, they often expand faster than their transportation infrastructure. This has led to suffocating traffic in many metro areas.
Only MetroTech provides this degree of precision. By using the existing infrastructure, MetroTech collects existing video and sensor data, analyzes it and publishes the results to governments, professional drivers and commuters instantly. This data impacts traffic flow. It saves resources. It saves the environment. It saves time and energy.
Current systems are based on probe data, such as smart phones and vehicle monitors, and installed loops. This data is often inconsistent and is received 5-40 minutes after it’s reported. The data cannot be verified by any definitive resource. In addition, the information collected is not granular enough or specific to the lane-level.
Intelligent transportation systems (ITS) aim to find smarter, more coordinated use of transportation systems. However, pulling data from only one source leaves a flawed view of the current situation.
Recent studies have shown that traffic information service providers using GPS data did not provide reliable and accurate information for either highway or arterial roads .
