INSIGHT provides comprehensive data, displayed on an easy-to-interpret dashboard, for major arterials and minor roads across the CBD and suburbs – including the West Gate Freeway, Punt Road and the Hume Highway. It also includes regional areas including Greater Geelong, the Mornington Peninsula and the Yarra Ranges. The data is validated against real-time information from road authorities to produce 96 per cent accuracy.
INSIGHT has been used in New South Wales for the past year – covering 20,000kms+ of roads, 470 suburbs, and 38 local government areas. INSIGHT was also used to analyse the outcomes of the 2018 Hoddle Street Streamlining Project, which it showed had helped to reduce peak hour traffic by 14 per cent.
Intelematics’ recent analysis of NSW roads has shown an increase in suburban driving and localism, due to COVID, which has put many suburban roads under pressure.
“As an organisation we exist to help our customers, whether they be local government authorities or major employers in the CBD. Our aim is for them to make better-informed business decisions, by way of an intuitive, powerful and smart data intelligence platform,” says Nick Marks, CEO, Intelematics.
“As we start to establish what the new COVID-norm looks like, we hope to have played a part in helping workplaces, governments and industry navigate this transition safely using the best data available,” Marks adds.
INSIGHT is designed with local government authorities in mind who need accurate road and traffic data to make decisions about road and traffic projects, including new roads, intersections and active mobility upgrades such as bike paths. It also gives them the ability to understand the impact of major road projects on road users and communities – before they commence.
