Wejo, a connected vehicle data company with offices in Detroit and the United Kingdom, and Esri in California, a location intelligence company, have announced a joint solution that will combine geographic information system technology and road data.
Users will be able to complement Esri’s location services with traffic and mobility intelligence collected from connected vehicles in near real time.
“Providing traffic and journey intelligence together with the existing location intelligence available through Esri puts the many intricate pieces in the mobility puzzle together,” says Richard Barlow, CEO of Wejo. “Now organizations can see the bigger picture in one place and make smarter decisions about everything from operational efficiency and economic development to safety, security, and sustainability.”
More than 350,000 organizations use Esri services. Wejo will offer an additional 8.6 trillion data points from more than 10.7 million vehicles available to users of Esri’s ArcGIS, a mapping system that connects people, locations, and data.
Initial launch of the product will offer Traffic Intelligence, which unlocks insight into traffic volumes and flows, and Journey Intelligence, which offers a deeper understanding of mobility trends by aggregating journey data to show journey volumes, average speed, and travel times.
“Connected vehicle data is a rich source of information that has tremendous untapped potential,” says Robert Laudati, director of global partners and alliances at Esri. “However, it is dynamic, high-volume and complex data, and this valuable solution from Wejo will help our joint customers leverage this wealth of timely and accurate information to make insightful, data-driven decisions regardless of experience.”
Both offerings are available in Esri ArcGIS Marketplace. The companies are partnering on the development of additional data solutions.
Wejo was founded in 2014 and employs more than 150 people. Esri was founded in 1969, and its services are used by companies in the Americas, Asia and the Pacific, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East.
