StreetLight Data will enable ODOT to transform Inrix data into actionable intelligence
The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) has added analytics and origin-destination to its existing Inrix traffic services to help monitor, measure and manage the state’s road network. As part of the agreement, StreetLight Data will enable ODOT to transform Inrix data into actionable intelligence.
Inrix is a world leader in connected car services and transportation analytics and its real-time traffic services have helped Ohio DOT actively manage traffic on its roadway for nearly five years. StreetLightData is a San Francisco-based technology firm that transforms geospatial data produced by mobile devices into valuable transportation behaviour information.
“The addition of analytics gives them the tools to more accurately measure and report the impact of transportation investments,” said Scott Sedlik, vice president and general manager, global public sector at Inrix.
“Additionally, we’re excited ODOT is making these new tools available to all transportation agencies in the state, including the City of Columbus as part of its Smart City Initiative."
Ohio DOT will utilise a suite of analytic tools and traffic services from Inrix and StreetLight Data to improve system planning, traffic management and operations in Ohio:
“It is really gratifying to help Ohio Department of Transportation gain greater visibility into travel realities throughout the state,” said Laura Schewel, CEO and co-founder of StreetLight Data.
“The ability to study transportation patterns with updated mobility intelligence will help Ohio better understand the usage of its existing infrastructure, pinpoint challenges and improve confidence in new transportation projects."
