Data Warehousing and Sensoring

Our vision

The effect of accurate traffic information on traffic flow optimization is far greater than generally perceived. An important precondition is the use of consistent and high-quality data throughout the systems that influence traffic flow. When in car systems, radio traffic information and variable message signs provide the same accurate information to the road user, their choices will be more rational and predictable, resulting in network effects from which the entire traffic system benefits. Traffic managers using the same high-quality data for their choices in intersection control, routing recommendations and traffic planning will add to the effects, resulting in optimal use of existing infrastructure and insight in future infrastructure needs.

In order to achieve this consistent data feed, traffic information should be collected from a variety of sources, such as floating car data and road side sensors. The data is processed and fused in a single regional data warehouse and is then shared with traffic management centers, road side systems and traffic information service providers in real time. Consistent traffic predictions, coming out of the same data warehouse will provide even more means to anticipate. When all road users have access to the same high-quality traffic information from different sources, the entire traffic system becomes more effective.

ARS T&TT provides the best possible traffic data feed for any desired application or purpose by installing road side sensors and by adding floating car data from own sources and third parties. ARS T&TT merges the data in the proven Traffic Data Warehouse software suite to a real-time feed. Granular historical data is stored for statistics and analysis. On top of this, ARS T&TT provides enriched data, such as traffic predictions and extensive analysis based on historical data.

There’s no need to acquire and operate the equipment and there’s also no need to source data from different vendors: ARS Traffic & Transport Technology provides its customers with best in class traffic data, merged from different sources, as a service. We guarantee very high availability and data quality, so our customers can focus on their core tasks.

 

Products

Within our Data Warehousing & Sensoring solution, we offer the following products:

Traffic Data Warehouse

The ARS T&TT Traffic Data Warehouse (TDW) is a software system for real time low latency processing, and fusion of traffic data from a variety of sources. Based on context information, real time data and historical data, accurate traffic predictions are created in real time.

In the TDW data lake, individual data points supplied by ARS T&TT sensors and other suppliers are stored. This data is made available to end users via the TDW Cockpit, a comprehensible frontend system for traffic data analysis.

Advantages
• State of the art, high uptime, low latency system for traffic information, traffic predictions, traffic management and traffic analysis purpose 
• Datawarehouse with the storage capacity of billions of individual vehicle passage records
• Highly flexible and user-friendly web-based system for analysis of historical traffic data from the ARS T&TT Traffic Data Warehouse 

Client

Our Traffic Data Warehouse solution has been the main source for traffic data for the Dutch National Data Warehouse (NDW) in the Netherlands, providing data from highways, secondary roads and city roads for more than 10 years.

 
Sensor solutions

ARS T&TT provides a wide variety of traffic data sensor solutions: autonomous, solar powered loop detectors for traffic volume measurements, license plate cameras and Bluetooth scanners for travel time measurements and floating car data from in car devices. These sensors all have different purposes and advantages.

In the TDW data lake, individual data points supplied by ARS T&TT sensors and other suppliers are stored. This data is made available to end users via the TDW Cockpit, a comprehensible frontend system for traffic data analysis.

Advantages
• Always choose the best fit for purpose sensor solution 
• Highly accurate sensors and data sources to provide the best possible information
• Flexible architecture, which can evolve over time 

Client

Our sensor solutions have been in use in the Netherlands, Sweden, Finland and Belgium at different road authorities for more than 10 years.
