Traffic in Helsinki Visualized

Traftic video

 

RoadCloud and WhereOS have joined forces to collect, analyze and visualize data collected from the fleet of commercial vehicles through RoadCloud sensors. “It’s amazing how detailed information you can collect from road network conditions through RoadCloud sensors”, says JP Partanen, CEO of WhereOS.

The data used for this video has been collected from the vehicles over the time of one full year (2018). You can see how the rush hour traffic affects the average speeds at different locations on different times of the day.

The RoadCloud data can be used for many other analyses such as: How the road conditions – friction, road state (dry/wet/ice/snow), temperature – affect the average speeds. Or how a speed bump or some other new traffic arrangement affects the traffic around it. In the upcoming articles we will dig deeper into the data and create new interesting visualizations out of it.

RoadCloud in a project with Trafikverket in Sweden

Winter road

RoadCloud has been awarded a 2+1 year contract with Trafikverket in Sweden. The contract is the result of a public procurement by Trafikverket.

RoadCloud provides road surface friction data to Trafikverket in Gothenburg and Västerås areas. This data is a part of a pilot project by Trafikverket to improve the planning and execution of road maintenance efforts in Sweden. An article by Trafikverket (in Swedish) on the topic can be found here: LINK

Especially the Gothenburg area is attracting interest as an emerging ecosystem of vehicle data. Other actors in this ecosystem are for example Nira dynamics (owned by Audi) and ÅF.

RoadCloud collects the data using a special measurement system it has developed that includes an optical sensor and data from the car CAN bus. The measurement system is installed to commercial vehicles, such as taxis, buses and transportation vehicles driving in these areas. Triona AB is working together with RoadCloud to find suitable fleet partners whose vehicles are equipped with the measurement system. Finding the right partners is crucial to the success of the project. The target is to measure 75 000 km of road surface a day when the whole fleet is deployed. A demonstration of what data the measurement system is collecting can be found here: LINK

RoadCloud has a measurements fleets in Finland around the greater Helsinki area and Lapland.
