Speed profiles assist traffic engineering studies

Tele Atlas : 28 September, 2009  (Application Story)
VIA is using speed profiles from digital mapping and navigation experts to assist in traffic engineering and management project
Tele Atlas, a global provider of digital maps and dynamic content for navigation and location-based solutions, and VIA, a consulting agency specialized in traffic engineering advice and practical software applications in the fields of traffic and transport, have signed an agreement whereby VIA is using Tele Atlas' unique Speed Profiles in ViaStat, a platform for traffic engineering and traffic management.

With Tele Atlas Speed Profiles, which includes data derived from more than 700 billion speed measurements, ViaStat gives users unprecedented insight into real-world road traffic speeds. The highly granular 5-minute profiles and extensive road network coverage support better analysis of traffic flow, travel time, average road speeds and other traffic management scenarios. With updated data, Dutch government organizations, including policy makers, road authorities and the police, making use of the information are able to adapt, with the aim of improving road safety, accessibility and the environment, and to monitor and evaluate the impact of the measurements more quickly.

Tele Atlas Speed Profiles are updated quarterly with the latest consumer driving patterns to provide true average speeds on individual road segments. To ensure a high level of accuracy, roads available in Tele Atlas Speed Profiles have been driven and measured on average more than 2,000 times at different times and during different days of the week. The information is available for ViaStat users through online subscription and can be accessed with a single login code.

At the ITS World Congress in Stockholm (22-25 September), VIA will demonstrate the Tele Atlas Speed Profiles in ViaStat in stand K20.
