US-based INRIX has won a deal from the Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT) to provide its urban traffic intelligence solution.
Under the deal, INRIX will provide its Roadway Analytics tool for instant and precise road performance analysis.
The cloud-based tool is designed to carry out traffic analysis by identifying areas that benefit most from road improvements.
It can also help LADOT to reduce its cost of operations, as well as more accurately measure and report the impact of transportation investments and improve road traffic.
INRIX transportation engineer Tim Fremaux said: “Like many cities, traffic in and around Los Angeles has far-reaching impact, not only on commuters, but also to our economy and the environment.
“With INRIX Roadway Analytics, we’re taking the necessary steps to maximise our efforts to move people and goods through our city.”
"With INRIX Roadway Analytics, we’re taking the necessary steps to maximise our efforts to move people and goods through our city."
LADOT intends to use the data from INRIX Roadway Analytics to create performance charts that produce line and bar graphs to enable before and after studies and / or comparisons of roadways with visualisations to communicate findings.
Using Congestion Scan featured in the tool, LADOT will be able to identify problem areas along a road with heat maps.
The Trend Maps configuration offers visual communication by illustrating the impact of roadway conditions throughout the day.
With the Bottleneck Ranking solution, LADOT will be able to identify hotspots or congested corridors during a specific analysis period within an area.
Data Downloader tool is also included in INRIX Roadway Analytics to allow LADOT to directly query INRIX XD Traffic speed archive data for any road segment and / or time period.
