Transportation Professionals Can Now Utilize Online Data and Traffic Patterns—PAST, PRESENT and PREDICTIVE—to Create Intelligent Solutions
“The huge sample size of data provided by AirSage allows us to provide origin-destination trip analysis and predictive modeling for our customers at a level that was not possible until recently. I am looking forward to implementing Cube Cloud for the analysis of AirSage data to bring such an extensive dataset into our transportation modeling.” —Mike Wallace, Transportation Engineer, Fehr & Peers
ATLANTA — (BUSINESS WIRE) — July 10, 2012 — A partnership between AirSage™—the nation’s leading provider of population location and mobility data—and Citilabs—the largest international provider of transportation planning solutions—is forever changing the landscape of the transportation industry with the debut of Cube Cloud, the world’s first cloud-based traffic analytics solution.
Using AirSage’s cell phone signal analysis data, Cube Cloud combines the convenience of an online solution with accurate population movement data to deliver the industry’s most effective and cost-efficient transportation analysis and modeling system. The AirSage-powered solution is the first cloud-based tool offered on the Cube Cloud data store.
“Planners and engineers have always been frustrated with the high costs and long delays in collecting population movement data,” said Michael Clarke, CEO of Citilabs. “Working with AirSage has enabled us to bring to market a powerful, collaborative and low-cost solution to analyze travel patterns and develop optimal solutions to today’s transportation problems.”
Cube Cloud bypasses traditional data collection methods, which provide limited information and are time consuming and expensive. Transportation planning, modeling, traffic engineering, GIS and urban planning professionals can use Cube Cloud to:
- Provide information about traffic volume and travelers on any street for mobile advertising and site-location industries
- Calculate energy consumption and air and noise pollution to test new green transportation initiatives
- Help identify solutions to daily traffic delays
- Serve as a platform for testing new initiatives in smart mobility
“Transportation and population analysis has remained virtually unchanged for decades—until now,” said Andrea Moe, Vice President of Product Management and Marketing at AirSage. “Strategic partnerships with other market leaders, like Citilabs, allow AirSage to accelerate innovative ideas. With Cube Cloud, AirSage is forever changing the landscape of the transportation planning industry.”
