Street safety and efficiency
Minimize the impact of traffic incidents with analytics and proactive planning
Why it matters
As traffic volumes increase, it’s crucial to continuously manage the flow of vehicles. Safety, congestion and pollution all risk escalating, affecting residents and drivers. You need a proactive approach that uncovers and lets you tackle potential issues before they arise.
How Altitude helps
Altitude lets you dive into how different commercial and consumer vehicles move along your road network, and how their behaviors affect signals and corridors in near-real time.
Use these insights to evaluate bottlenecks and improve traffic signal timings, identify opportunities for traffic calming measures, analyze corridor congestion and turning movement patterns.
Discover our street safety & efficiency solutions
1. Traffic signaling performance
Ease the burden on overused corridors – adjust signaling time for vehicles to mitigate queue lengths.
Benchmark signal efficiency in all directions of travel while looking at unique daily and hourly trends.
Characterize vehicle types (large, slow-moving vs. small and faster-moving) affecting these areas and feed these insights into traffic signal progression models.
2. Corridor efficiency
Characterize traffic flow and corridor performance across signalized intersections.
Assess the effectiveness of certain signal phase changes within a targeted corridor, and its impact on your entire transportation network.
Build better traffic signal progression models and profiles that account for the actual vehicles on a corridor, and improve the signal efficiency across your entire network.
3. Traffic engineering
Zoom into problem areas by visualizing traffic behavior and establish how traffic density, vehicle types, peak times and vehicle behavior are affecting specific corridors and roadways.
Analyze patterns and recurring issues across your jurisdiction to root out common causes. Visualize how specific commercial vehicles – whether large freight or smaller delivery vehicles – interact with your roadways at times of high congestion. Understand why vehicles serving different industries are using your roadways at specific times.
4. Vision Zero
See at a glance the intersections and roadways that are the highest priority for new safety measures.
Characterize the effectiveness of safety measures put in place and ensure there are no new safety concerns introduced elsewhere in the network.
5. Curbside management
Analyze growing last-mile and curbside delivery activity in your city and find where commercial vehicles are causing high traffic density.
Drill into specific areas of concern and examine commercial vehicle movement patterns over time to see number of trips, average speed and parking events.
Use our vocation models and analytics to better understand curbside usage in city core areas. Use these insights to more effectively use curb space through informed curbside management programs and initiatives.
