Geotab's ITS business has released an analytics platform designed to provide governments with insights that can be used to improve their transportation networks. 

Geotab ITS aggregates data from connected vehicles to produce actionable transportation insights and urban analytics for transportation leaders across the United States and Canada. These insights are provided in an open platform so that partners and customers can interact with the data and integrate it into internal systems, processes and workflows. 

The new Altitude platform is expected to allow government entities to identify areas for traffic improvements, model and predict the impact of specific interventions and monitor their effectiveness.

Geotab says Altitude combines sensors and other measurement tools with rich data analytics, and can help governments make improvement decisions to increase throughput and eliminate bottlenecks.

Mike Branch, vice president of data and analytics at Geotab, says: “With Altitude, transportation leaders gain an additional layer of perspective around traffic data to quickly identify and resolve mobility challenges like freight bottlenecks and struggles around last-mile delivery before they become a problem. 

“And for problems that already exist, Altitude shines a light onto the root causes of the problems by adding much needed context so that governments can adjust course as needed.”
