The Eastern Transportation Coalition (ETC) selected Wejo, a global leader in cloud and software analytics for autonomous, electric, and connected vehicle data, to join their Traffic Data Marketplace. By joining ETC's marketplace, Wejo will enable Departments of Transportation (DoTs) to keep their communities, cities, and states moving safely and efficiently with smart mobility insights.
With state and local agencies looking to maximize the influx of funding made available from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, TETC members now have the opportunity to access Wejo data generated from millions of connected vehicles on the road. The insights provide a unique and powerful way for public agencies to gain an accurate, granular understanding of trends across the mobility ecosystem based on vehicle speeds, journey information, hard braking events and more. These insights are a powerful tool for state and local agencies looking to reduce traffic congestion, enhance safety, improve air quality and preserve the value of transportation assets in the future which maps to the law’s key themes.
“One of Wejo’s core driving principles is enabling Smart Mobility for Good™ products and services that deliver faster, smarter, and safer journeys for everyone on the road,” said Richard Barlow, Founder and CEO at Wejo. “Joining TETC’s Traffic Data Marketplace allows us to benefit people's lives, drive revenue and power innovations by sharing data and insights that create safer roads for drivers across the eastern corridor.”
TETC is a partnership of 17 states and Washington, D.C., connecting public agencies to increase road safety and efficiency. In the past 25 years, TETC has evolved from a small, highway-focused group to more than 100 public agencies working together to address the pressing challenges facing the eastern corridor, focusing on transportation systems management & operations, freight, and innovation. The primary goal of TETC is to provide Coalition members with the ability to acquire reliable travel time & speed data for their roadways without the need for sensors and other hardware. As a leader in real-time traffic and traffic analytics, Wejo is primed to support TETC’s stated goals.
The TDM provides members with access to real-time travel data, serves as a source of traveler information, and acts as an input to management tools that supports operations and planning.
Additionally, the TDM uses data associated with vehicles or passengers harvested from various suppliers, agencies, devices, and technologies within the traffic stream.
