North Florida Transportation Planning Organisation (TPO) has partnered with Urban SDK, a connected mobility and safety analytics platform, with the intention of modernising its data collection and improving mobility intelligence in the region.

 

The planning organisation reports that it will use Urban SDK’s platform to create a more “synergistic approach” to transportation planning and to more effectively understand the performance measures set forth by the government.

 

Planning organisations

 

Urban SDK provides planning organisations and departments of transportation (DOTs) across the US with real-time data – ranging from weather to information captured by regional traffic cameras and cell towers – in one organised dashboard.

 

From this dashboard, planners can evaluate data and use the platform’s predictive analytics to make transportation planning decisions and assess and report performance metrics to the public.

 

“Our goal is to continue bringing the concept of a smart city from dream to reality right here in North Florida, but you can’t build smart cities with paper and spreadsheets. Urban SDK’s technology is modernising the planning sector in a way that helps us ultimately maintain citizen safety and decrease cost and commute times across our transportation system,” said Jeff Sheffield, executive director of the North Florida TPO.

 

“Urban SDK’s platform is allowing us to better understand our performance measures, establish clear priorities and make data-driven decisions.”

 

Planning and transportation agencies throughout the country have individualised data and reporting needs that Urban SDK can integrate into its platform and share with its entire client roster. This ultimately provides the SaaS company’s clientele with the most dynamic data and reporting features, according to the company.

“Our goal is to continue bringing the concept of a smart city from dream to reality right here in North Florida, but you can’t build smart cities with paper and spreadsheets”

The platform also gives insight into how agencies throughout the country are reporting data to its constituents, therefore encouraging continued innovation.

 

“We know each planning organisation has specific needs, and our team is prepared to work with our clients to build additional widgets and products to improve and streamline dynamic data reporting,” said Drew Messer, CEO and co-founder of Urban SDK.

 

“The public sector is trying to adjust to operating like the private sector, and, as a SaaS company dedicated to innovation, we can work together organically as we figure out how to best modernise government entities.”
