To quote Shawn Turner of the Texas Transportation Institute, “Using road tubes to collect traffic volume data is a proven method, but it’s an old practice and puts people in harm’s way.” Well, what if you could get high quality annual average daily traffic (AADT) counts for any roadway in just a few minutes – without leaving your office? What if those estimates were as good or better than your typical two-day tube or modeled count?
We think on-demand AADT could improve the way public agencies allocate roadway maintenance funding. Your staff could spend less time installing and monitoring sensors on dangerous roadsides – and more time improving infrastructure. StreetLight Data is making this possible with the launch of our 2017 AADT Metrics in StreetLight InSight®, our on-demand transportation analytics platform. We believe they are the most accurate Big Data derived AADT to hit the industry to date. (And we’re happy to show you why.)
