Report contends growing ubiquity of connected vehicles will streamline data processing and make predictive analytics economically viable for urban planners.
Almost two thirds of municipal smart city and transportation decision leaders (62 per cent) are using vehicle data for traffic management, zoning and urban planning, as well as the monitoring of road usage and capacity.
Additionally, Israeli automotive data firm Otonomo Technologies’ research found that this cohort used vehicle data to manage high-accident areas, parking and to monitor environmental impact.
Smart city planning
Otonomo’s report, “What 50 Smart Cities Say About Using Vehicle Data”, contends that the “growing ubiquity” of connected vehicles will streamline data processing and make predictive analytics – the ‘engine’ that powers smart city planning – economically viable for urban planners. The report is being launched at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2022, taking place in Las Vegas until 7 January.
At the same time, the report cautions that reliance on legacy infrastructure such as cameras and road sensors to capture vehicle data, thwarts their ability to tap into its transformative potential.
“This survey confirms what we’re seeing in the field – that for connected vehicle data to power smart city development in a meaningful way, they need to shift to a single connected data source,” said Ben Volkow, CEO and co-founder of Otonomo.
“Connected vehicle data not only makes smart cities much smarter, but when leveraged for real time safety, emergency planning, and reducing congestion, it saves countless lives and enables a better, cleaner urban experience.”
He continued: “Another key takeaway from this survey is that connected car data can turbocharge the ability of smart cities to support EV expansion into their communities.”
Other key takeaways from the research report include:
- 36 per cent are using vehicle data to improve the experience of business travellers and tourists, with an additional 28 per cent planning
- only 22 per cent are using vehicle data for real-time traffic management. However, 31 per cent plan to, and 68 per cent report using vehicle data for managing mass events, which is traffic management
- 46 per cent are planning to build applications integrating vehicle data to inform public and private transportation options for city residents, with almost 30 per cent planning to use or increase their use of vehicle data to do so
- only 34 per cent have or plan for EV charging stations, with 62 per cent reporting that it’s difficult to get reliable EV data
- only eight per cent of the cities surveyed currently use connected car data to deliver better transportation and mobility services.
Lead to Market, an independent survey firm, carried out the survey in July 2021. The content of the report is based on interviews with C-suite executives, senior leaders in finance, compliance, and procurement departments, senior transportation directors and other decision makers from 50 cities in 26 states including California, Florida, Illinois, New York, Massachusetts, and Wisconsin.
