Journey Time Monitoring

Are we nearly there yet? Providing accurate and reliable journey times to beat the summer holiday traffic

August 5th 2019 / Michelle C/ Links: Journey Time Monitoring

Getting stuck in traffic on the way to your summer holiday is extremely stressful given you likely have a flight or a ferry to catch. What could be worse than running late to catch a connection with bored children in the car asking, ‘are we nearly there yet?’ and no sign of the end to the queueing traffic? Add to this, the fact that many major road upgrades are scheduled for the summer holiday period to reduce the impact on commuters and you can understand how drivers come to blame the road operators for their delay. But what can they do about this when the upgrades need to be carried out at some point?

The many uses of journey time data

February 7th 2019 / Michelle C/ Links: Network Management Journey Time Monitoring

You can gather journey time data from Bluetooth detectors, ANPR cameras, or it can be crowdsourced. Bluetooth detectors register a MAC address as a driver or passenger with a mobile phone passes a detector; ANPR cameras monitor licence plates; and crowdsourced data is generated by analysing the GPS locations transmitted by mobile phone and satellite navigation systems. The latter is our preferred method of generating journey time data, but why do you need journey time data and what can you use it for?

July 26th 2018 / Michelle C/ Links: Network Management Journey Time Monitoring

How to get your road users out of a jam: reducing congestion around roadworks

June 8th 2017 / Marketing M/ Links: Route Safety Network Management Journey Time Monitoring Traffic Flow Monitoring

Understanding when congestion is most likely to occur, and where, can help drivers plan accordingly, whether that means setting off early or taking an alternative route. If road operators can provide timely, accurate traffic information and projected journey times during roadworks, road users benefit from the information they need to evaluate alternative routes, let others know of their expected arrival time, and stay calm if they do get caught in a jam by knowing how long they will be held up.

How Data as a Service (DaaS) is used in the Intelligent Transport Sector (ITS)

May 18th 2017 / Michelle C/ Links: Journey Time Monitoring Traffic Flow Monitoring

We’ve seen many changes in the challenges our clients face over our 40-year history. Initially, our clients needed to know what traffic was using their network. We supplied the hardware to answer this question. Over time our clients have become less concerned with the equipment at the roadside and more concerned with the data. In particular, they need to make sense of the data and turn it into actionable intelligence. As Highways England chief executive Jim O'Sullivan, said recently on the use of data "What are we going to do with it has become the question, rather than how do we get it." Clearview are here to help; through our DaaS agreements and Insight Data Intelligence Platform we allow our clients to focus on the “What” while we look after the “How”.
