TomTom Historical Traffic Services give you access to the largest car-centric traffic database of more than 14 trillion anonymously collected real trip data points, providing reliable data source for analysis to understand and predict driving behaviour across the road network. The TomTom Historical Services location data is available for all road segments within cities and highways, which enables analysis on greater coverage and for a much more attractive price when compared to traditional infrastructure investments.
One of the products of the TomTom Historical Traffic Services is the TomTom Traffic Stats, a cloud-based solution available through a self-service web portal (TomTom Move) or via APIs (TomTom for Developers). With a simple set of input parameters, the user can specify a customized query for their own road network, the specific days of interest and the time periods in that date range that need to be studied. The results are computed and a report is made available through the same interface. The average delivery time for smaller requests is within a few minutes. Even with very large queries containing a large area and a wide date range the query should never take longer than 24 hours. When the query is ready the output is available for download or viewing in the portal.
The extensive and detailed coverage associated with a wide time span makes Traffic Stats the best and most affordable solution proportionally compared to traditional traffic management methods.
Within the Traffic Stats product, three types of analysis are made available:
· Route Analysis: allow users to define a specific route and generates average speed, average travel times and sample size (number of vehicles that traversed a segment);
· Area Analysis: get average speeds, average travel times and sample size (number of vehicles that traversed a segment) for every segment;
· Traffic Density: focused analysis only on sample size (number of vehicles that traversed a segment), excluding all speed and travel time parameters.
