Reducing congestion is at the top of many municipalities' lists of top challenges to address, and understanding traffic flow and causes of delays in intersections is crucial data to aid traffic engineers. To date, solutions have consisted of hardware and software solutions, such as Miovision's camera-based systems which can track vehicle, bicycle, and pedestrian data at intersections. Although effective, the solutions cost tens of thousands of dollars per intersection for transportation departments. Inrix's leveraging of anonymous vehicle data will likely be a significantly lower-cost solution, but it will struggle to capture data with the accuracy of camera-based setups.
