Complacency is not an option
At Miovision, we’re constantly looking for new ways to improve our products. We’re firmly committed to enhancing the tools and information transportation professionals use to do their work. Backed by the world’s most advanced traffic AI, Miovision is the market leader in traffic data and is home to the largest repository of traffic video data in the world. So, where do we go from here?
Introducing the Scout Connected Adapter
Transportation planners and engineers bear an enormous responsibility to shape the future of our cities. They need meaningful and reliable data to make informed decisions that accommodate all citizens – whether they walk, cycle, drive, or use public transportation. With that in mind, we’re proud to announce the launch of the Scout Connected Adapter.
Gather ground truth data
Miovision’s Scout video collection unit is already used in over 13,000 cities, counties, and transportation agencies around the world to gather data on how roadways are used by vehicles, bicycles, and pedestrians. The addition of connectivity to the Scout Platform opens up a whole new world of data collection and analysis opportunities. By connecting Scout devices to the internet, IoT technology allows transportation planners and engineers to access meaningful data they’ve never had before. Transportation professionals can now get reliable, accurate data that allows them to analyze for real trends – including travel time.
Analyze movements from A to B
With IoT connectivity, Scout devices can now capture MAC addresses and timestamps from passing WiFi-enabled mobile devices. This allows engineers to examine travel times between two or more Scout devices, and use that information to create a more complete picture of how roadways are being used.
Data collectors can wirelessly import traffic data directly into our free, cloud-based platform for organizing, visualizing, and sharing data. From there, engineers and planners can use the platform to store and easily combine new and old data to generate novel insights. And, because projects planned and executed within the platform can be linked to Scout units collecting data in the field, engineers and planners can track the progress of data collection along the way. It’s a win-win for transportation professionals everywhere. And, more importantly for citizens in communities all over the world.
