98% Data Accuracy - Miovision

BLOG | Oct 21, 2021

Why 98% data accuracy isn’t enough for your traffic solution

The safety of citizens on roadways and at intersections is a top priority for governments, and drives decision-making at every stage of traffic infrastructure implementation. From strategic planning, to procurement, installation, and management, ensuring public safety comes down to having accurate and timely data to make the right decisions at the right times. So when your team is deciding on new traffic technology for your city, data accuracy rates play a critical role in ensuring public safety and shortlisting vendors.

Know the Ground-Truth with Video-Based Data Collection

Big data is a part of the traffic data collection landscape, but bigger doesn’t always mean better. In light of changing traffic patterns during the pandemic, some U.S. states have halted traditional data collection programs for the time being and are instead pushing for the adoption of big data powered software platforms. Big data platforms, however, require specific usage guidelines when it comes to supplementing traffic count programs (see, Virginia’s Report), because big data isn’t an appropriate tool for all use-cases.

New Challenges Call for New Solutions

Technological innovation is accelerating. Several industries have seen widespread adoption of solutions that focus on improving efficiency, maintaining business continuity, and allowing users to accomplish more. While other sectors are embracing ingenuity at a breakneck pace, the traffic industry has faltered. Whether it’s a systemic or localized problem, I think we, as contributors to this industry, have relied on traditional practices and dated solutions that impose unnecessary barriers in our work. Working closely with our customers to help them maximize the benefits of the traffic technology available today, I’ve gotten insight into the problems my fellow traffic engineers are facing, as well as the broader challenges within our industry. One of the most common challenges? Data.

Why decreasing traffic volumes are leading to an increase in safety concerns

The implications of physical distancing caused by COVID-19 are surfacing every day. While most of these trends have been expressly negative, a silver lining in our industry is that, across North America, vehicle collisions have decreased anywhere from 30 to 75%. Not only does this translate to safer roads, but there’s an economic value associated with it. For example, the LA Times recently published an article citing that the reduction in crashes has led to 40 million dollars of taxpayer savings daily.

Pilot Project - Miovision

Pilot project aims to improve traffic approaching Canada-US border

The Ambassador Bridge between Detroit and Windsor doesn’t just carry a lot of traffic. It carries more than a quarter of the approximately $700 billion of goods traded annually between the US and Canada via thousands of trucks that cross the border daily. That creates a lot of traffic along Huron Church Road – the main road in Windsor leading to and from the bridge. And, that in turn creates two challenges: moving goods (and people) efficiently while reducing the impact of all this traffic on the local community.

How live events affect traffic

There are no shortages of traffic nightmares caused by live events. Although they allow us to support our favourite artists, athletes and celebrities, the process of navigating events is usually centered around traffic and transportation. Questions like: How early should I leave? Is it worth driving or should I take public transportation? Can I beat the traffic by leaving early? Are all top of mind when attending an event and ultimately, deter the overall experience.

Price is an inevitable factor when purchasing any type of technology, but when it comes to portable data collection can you really put a price on quality and reliability?

Urban Congestion Impacts and Improvements

The US Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) released their annual Urban Congestion Trends for 2010, which shows an increase in congestion and traffic levels overall within US urban cities. Twenty cities are measured annually and the latest report shows an 18 minute increase in daily delays from 4:20 to 4:38. Congestion levels have been steadily increasing since 2008 when levels dropped due to the downturn in the economy. However, they haven’t reached the levels previously seen prior to the recession in 2007.
