A vehicle’s purpose: Providing vocation insights to transportation planners
Making informed transportation decisions requires a deeper understanding of traffic patterns and anomalies. A contextual factor that plays an integral part in aiding these decisions is vocation – understanding not just traffic volume but the vehicle’s purpose on the road.
Vocation, along with other contextual insights, are a key part of the Geotab ITS Altitude platform. Use ITS data to understand why vehicles are on the road, enabling better decisions that enhance traffic flow and support commercial freight activity.
