wejo, a UK-based tech firm working on connected vehicle data, and Waycare, a smart mobility cloud-based traffic management firm operating in the US and Israel, recently announced a new partnership in which Waycare will utilise wejo’s connected car data for more accurate traffic management solutions. The long-term partnership will be implemented into an existing program in Nevada, eventually expanding on to further states.
Waycare software is currently used by several Nevada transportation and safety management agencies to identify and respond to incidents quicker, providing data-driven insights to help them take proactive measures to improve traffic safety:
• The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTCSN)
• Freeway & Arterial System of Transportation (FAST)
• Nevada Highway Patrol (NHP)
• Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) Freeway Service Patrol (FSP) and Maintenance
wejo’s data will supplement Waycare’s existing traffic data sources, providing agencies with a comprehensive overview of conditions on the roads. The integration allows the Waycare platform to more accurately detect and predict incidents and determine risk on roadways. wejo curates, transforms and normalises this data to support partners including Waycare.
