Technology and innovation are central themes of this year’s ITS World Congress. There’s been much written about the issues of congestion, green transportation schemes and improving personal mobility, not least in this blog. At SQLstream we’ve been playing our part to help revolutionize the Intelligent Transportation industry. It’s clear that the concepts of streaming data and real-time analytics are entering the main stream – from low level Big Data toolkits that require a streaming, low latency front end, to the real world of sensor networks and industries such as smart grid and telecommunications.
This is just as true in transportation. Here we have an industry with vast volumes of sensor data, a need for sophisticated real-time analytics, and platforms capable of driving real-time process automation. We’ve been working with a number of transportation agencies for some time, and are about to launch a new ‘Insight’ product for intelligent transportation. Our ‘Insight’ range provides tools and out of the box support for specific industry verticals based on our core Stream-to-Business platform.
For Intelligent Transportation this means processing sensor data from GPS and fixed-road sensors, to deliver applications such as real-time Travel Time, live congestion detection and network KPI reporting.
Should you be attending the ITS World Congress, we’d be delighted to see you on our booth (#1366) for a demonstration.
