Otonomo Technologies and Iteris have entered a multi-year agreement to integrate connected vehicle data available through the Otonomo Smart Mobility Data Platform into Iteris’ ClearMobility Platform. This will provide Iteris with new mobility insights from its multiple sources of traffic intelligence that it provides public sector and commercial enterprise customers.

The ClearMobility Platform provides cloud-based mobility applications, safety intelligence and alerts, performance analytics, cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) solutions, intersection detection, AI-enabled object classification, mobility contextual awareness, travel time and congestion information, corridor management, and transportation planning and operations.

Iteris offers its platform-enabled capabilities in a variety of models including an anything-as-a-service (XaaS) basis. Iteris provides these capabilities to a large customer base that includes transportation agencies, media companies, automotive manufacturers, construction and engineering organisations, and risk management enterprises.

The Otonomo Smart Mobility Data Platform provides a range of proprietary and patented mobility data from curated, high-quality, multi-layered connected vehicle data, standardised and blurred to remove identifiers, to VIN-specific data compliant with data privacy regulations.

Use cases of the Otonomo platform include: analysing traffic behaviours globally to improve real-time traffic flows; smart cities emissions management; road safety through real-time and historical data on accidents, hard braking or speeds; infrastructure and transportation development support, with vehicle count, average speed, and origin/destination data to determine site analysis and demand planning.

“We are excited to extend our relationship with Otonomo,” said Will Cousins, senior vice president and chief product officer at Iteris. “They offer a world-class platform to ingest, process and publish connected vehicle data. Combined with our other third-party and proprietary mobility data, the data available through Otonomo’s platform will support even more precise traffic assessments, especially for less frequently travelled roads that are not as well supported by existing infrastructure communication systems. With Otonomo, we can continue to unlock the future of mobility infrastructure.”

“Our work with Iteris comes at a time when there is a pressing need to address the constantly growing and varied data sets available from the private sector,” said Anders Truelsen, chief revenue officer of Otonomo. “One of the biggest opportunities is being able to use the connected vehicle data available through the Otonomo platform to close the data activation gap—the gulf between getting the data and making it actionable—and help them to achieve the full promise of the mobility economy.”
