Government, state agencies and NGOs use vehicle data to research fuel and energy consumption compliance information and obtain independent confirmation. Governments may also be interested in obtaining statistics such as seat belts usage to better target safety campaigns.
Gas & Energy
Allows gas and energy companies (e,g, Shell, BP, ExxonMobil and others) to better understand patterns of drivers that consume fuel and other products in fuel stations. These data sets can help define how to market to those drivers who did not stop at their locations.
Obtain information on EV drivers behavioral patterns (for example 'Range Anxiety'), identify optimal locations for placements of public charging stations, and to help with issues regarding load balancing of the power grid.
Leverage offline and real-time traffic data to calculate patterns and vehicles routes to allow the driver to know the speed needed to catch the green light wave on his route.
Safety & Emergency
Improve response times, reduce congestion, decrease property damage, and save lives with connected car data. Information like airbag triggering, hard braking, speed, and location give emergency responders a headstart and also identify problem areas to transportation planners.
Empowering cities, governments, mobility providers and urban planners to predict traffic patterns, gain accurate and real time street level insights, and reduce traffic congestion and optimize road conditions.
Enabling retailers, real-estate asset managers, financial services and advertisers to better understand customers' spatial behavior (where do people come from, how long they spent in each location, popular times and more associated with each POI), identify best locations for business and optimize operations.
Find parking place: Parking applications leverage vehicle data to optimize on and off-street parking vacancies. These services help drivers locate available parking spots on the street or in parking lots and reduce city congestion. Data is also used to better estimate parking lots availability
Media & Advertisment
Media data from entertainment systems is used to improve and personalize out of home advertising in public areas including roadside advertisements.
Navigation & Mapping
Help commercial organizations, municipalities and state agencies to build and update SD and HD maps. Vehicle data is also used to provide real time traffic data feeds and analysis. Other applications can include sensor-based analysis of right of way for utility companies surveying sites for installation of items such as transmission lines.
Financial organizations such as Hedge Funds employ various alternative data sources to obtain advantages in choosing investment opportunities. Vehicle data can be used as alternative data used to provide unique insights on, for example, customer traffic to and from shopping centers and commercial businesses and the amount of time spent there in order to evaluate the performance of those businesses.
Automotive Parts Improvements
Tier1 and Tier2 automotive parts vendors use vehicle data to assess their manufactured parts and components performance and improve their product development processes.
Media Research & Ratings
Audience measurements help advertisers and advertising agencies measure radio listening habits and generate radio ratings for commercial, media spend optimization and content production.
Organizations and companies performing weather research and weather prediction collect weather related information such as temperature, pressure, and precipitation to build more accurate weather maps and predictions.
ities and organizations that operate smart city infrastructures require vehicle data to obtain insights such as dangerous road assessment, emergency and roadside assistance, as well as to analyze road and traffic management issues. It can also be used to identify, react and investigate car accidents faster, and real-time alerts on road hazard conditions.
Vehicle data is used by fleet owners to perform benchmarking and comparison research on their own fleet performance compared to benchmarks. On the personal case, fleet data is used to provide driver-specific fleet services such as routing and automated parking payments.
In this step, you will choose the required attributes for your service.
The attribute screen has two columns: filters column on the left and attribute list on the right.
By default, the filter column will be set to "All", and therefore all the available attributes will be listed.
Once you choose an attribute, it will be marked with a blue checkmark and you will be able to set the attribute as a Mandatory attribute.
What are Mandatory attributes?
When you mark an attribute as Mandatory, it means that any data that will be received by the service will have a valid, non-empty result for that attribute.
If for any reason, a data point from a vehicle is missing a mandatory attribute value, that point will not be included in the provided data/report.
By default, all the attributes are set to Optional. If you want to set an attribute as Mandatory, activate the toggle to the right of the attribute name.
Categories and Data Sets
Otonomo attributes are separated to different categories. Each attribute belongs only to a single category.
The list of available categories and their description can be found here: Attribute List
In addition, each attribute belongs to one or more data sets.
Data-set defines the type of data that the service will support.
There are 3 types of data-sets:
- Points - Each data point in the generated file will describe a single time sample of the selected attributes
- Trips - Each data point in the generated file will describe a single trip summary
- Road Signs - Each data point in the generated file will describe a single road sign observation
Pick Default - By choosing the default attributes, the service will be assigned with the most commonly used attributes.
Once chosen, you can add/remove additional attributes to this list.
Once finished with the service creation, the service will be available in "Test" mode until our staff has approved the service for production. Note that APIs cannot be used on service in test mode.
While waiting for approval, you will be given with a sample report for you to test with.
The sample report folder contains 2 type of reports with simulated data:
- Example_trip_report.csv - contains simulated data of vehicle trips
- Example_raw_data_points_reports.csv - contains simulated data of vehicle data points
