TrafficCast’s real travel-time information is set to be more accurate than ever, with the addition of real-time data from Wejo, a UK technology company which provides connected vehicle (CV) data. Upon announcing the partnership, Wejo CEO Richard Barlow commented, “Our value-added insights will enhance and improve TrafficCast’s product offerings and ultimately contribute to reduced congestion on America’s roads, shortened journey times, and provide car owners with a materially better driving experience.”

TrafficCast CEO Al McGowan added, “We are happy to announce our partnership with Wejo, and welcome the addition of their unique content to our industry-leading traffic information ecosystem. Wejo’s data exchange platform is a critical next step in the evolution of the connected vehicle, and our clients and end users will benefit from the insights their data provides.”

With the agreement, TrafficCast will receive Wejo’s anonymized traffic flow updates, including traveling speeds, from some seven million vehicles driving in real time. The partners consider this a major breakthrough in live data sourcing from the road, one that will provide users such as Departments of Transportation and everyday commuters, improved quality and accuracy in the traffic data that helps them navigate their world.

BlueTOAD Training Monday, Feb. 11

Phase II of TrafficCast International’s online BlueTOAD/BlueARGUS client training resumes on Monday. The format of this training focuses on specific, real world examples and various use cases. It allows BlueTOAD/BlueARGUS clients, like state and municipal transportation department, to imagine and inquire about real world examples and set their own particular challenges to the BlueTOAD and BlueARGUS experts for solving.

How to use the BlueTOAD/BlueARGUS system to improve travel patterns for major events would be one focus, for instance. Although some 400 online courses have been reserved, there is room for more. For more information, or to sign up, go to
