Our vision, investor information and leadership team profiles
Xouba is an analytics company based in Spain that uses cloud data to maximize the growing availability of electric and connected vehicle data to inform and improve road management and safety. As part of its efforts, Xouba has utilized Wejo’s data to better understand traffic and driver behavior trends using information generated from over 11.8 million connected vehicles.
To understand traffic-calming measures, municipalities typically use physical roadway sensors to analyze where speeding occurs. However, these sensors are costly to maintain, only provide a snapshot in time, and are often only located on straightaways in the road. With decades of experience in construction and road maintenance, the Xouba team saw a gap in the market and wanted to offer a new way of providing accurate insight into what was happening on the roads to inform governments of traffic-calming efforts.
Using Wejo’s connected vehicle data, Xouba can now understand traffic trends in real-time using information generated by vehicles on any roadway, at any time. Leveraging the hundreds of sensors within vehicles and reporting real-time information to the cloud users can understand how each car is moving every second of every day.
Xouba was able to help Spain’s Ministry of Transport, Mobility, and Urban Agenda measure the effectiveness of a recent roundabout intervention. As a result, Xouba found the intervention reduced miles per hour of the top 25% of speeding vehicles, often the group that leads to the biggest problem by 10%.
