Smart mobility specialist Wejo has launched Wejo Labs, a cloud-based platform to allow researchers to run traffic and mobility studies at scale with accurate Connected Vehicle Data (CVD) from tens of millions of connected vehicles across the US and Europe.

Traffic and mobility studies can be run with Wejo Labs through the configuration of connected vehicle data on vehicle events.

The platform is designed to provide a better understanding of how road conditions affect driving behaviours to validate weather conditions with hyper-local data points, and to analyse parking trends and identify roads in which hazardous driving occurs most often to support safety improvements.

Users can also leverage the connected vehicle data when analysing vehicle movements for views into routes and journeys, enhanced origin-destination studies, congestion management, event planning and high traffic destinations.

“Part of our smart mobility for good mission at Wejo is to democratise access to the power of connected vehicle data,” said Richard Barlow, Founder and CEO of Wejo. “With Wejo Labs, users can easily experiment with one of the most innovative data sources in the world to create proof of concepts using innovative technology that keeps their research and data analysis ahead of the curve to help shape the future of traffic and road safety. With this platform, researchers leverage billions of data points to design future-proof traffic systems and drive the future of smart mobility.”

Wejo Labs users can use any programming language to explore, query and analyse connected vehicle data. Data outputs can be visualised in various formats, including bar graphs, heat maps, and map layers, to look at data over a specified time period interactively and visually. With added support from Wejo’s in-house data analytics team, the platform is designed to simplify the process for users by loading the data in for them, geofencing it based on location and time zone, and then providing all the necessary tools for analysis.

According to Wejo, its Labs platform has been designed with data scientists in mind and to be a cost-effective solution that allows multiple users within the same organisation to get the most out of connected vehicle data. Users can license data specific to researcher projects.
