Analytics for smarter cities

Boost safety, reduce congestion and streamline city operations.

Empower smarter cities with data

Machine learning and analytics can transform connected vehicle data into actionable smart city insights to inform decision making. These insights help city planners understand local transportation patterns, highlight road conditions and areas for safety improvements, uncover opportunities to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and justify investments in digital infrastructure.

Vision Zero

New York City has seen traffic fatalities and serious collisions plummet since implementing its Vision Zero initiative seven years ago, thanks in large part to its investment in telematics. With full transparency on vehicle operations, the City is able to put driver safety first while keeping traffic flowing safely and efficiently.

Telematics as a Vision Zero tool

Telematics is a valuable tool that can help municipalities manage their entire transportation network while also providing them with data to help them achieve their Vision Zero goals. As learned by the examples set by NYC, telematics offers quantitative data to support safety initiatives in fleet management and support a more comprehensive approach to safety overall.

Geotab's smart city data aims to keep authorities and citizens informed by providing them with useful, data-based information that can be used to justify changes, support strategic municipal investments in smart city technologies and even predict future behaviors or activities.

This includes solutions that enable:

• the reduction of fatal traffic accidents or traffic-related injuries;
• highly localized air-quality mapping;
• dynamic traffic light synchronization;
• collision detection with real-time notifications;
• the simplification of logistics for commercial goods;
• the proactive assignment of first responders;
• reports on fuel consumption and idling trends;
• the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
Geotab works with federal, state and local authorities to provide solutions for all government fleets, including public transport fleets. To learn more about this, visit our Public Works solution page.

Geotab's smart city solutions have three main advantages:

1. Traffic optimization: Get essential city-wide traffic information that can be used to analyze traffic flow efficiency and justify future investments in connected transportation. Leverage data to manage congestion levels, reduce travel times and improve safety by anticipating and responding intelligently to changing traffic conditions.
2. Safety information to enhance road safety: Leverage connected vehicle data sets to assess dangerous traffic conditions and proactively communicate appropriate warnings to citizens when needed, including high-risk driving areas, hazardous driving conditions and traffic control measures.
3.Environmental benefits: By mapping emissions, idling areas and air quality in a highly localized way, sustainable development teams can identify the regions that have a higher proportion of air pollutants and implement proactive solutions that mitigate or eliminate the associated risks to citizens.
