MANCHESTER, England--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Wejo Group Limited (NASDAQ: WEJO), a global leader in Smart Mobility cloud and software solutions for connected, electric and autonomous vehicle data, today announced that Roadside Telematics Corp. (RTC), the world’s leading provider of contextual vehicular emergency data, has agreed to work towards deployment of Wejo RTTI (Real-Time Traffic Intelligence) to provide 9-1-1 first responders and emergency roadside assistance providers with access to real-time comprehensive traffic data derived from millions of connected vehicles through the RoadMedic® Next-Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) Intelligent Crash Data Ecosystem.
RTTI is a Real-Time Traffic Intelligence solution that provides critical insights via an up-to-the-minute and holistic view of traffic conditions and road safety incidents using aggregated data derived from millions of connected vehicles. First responders and emergency roadside assistance providers can utilize RTTI to find the fastest and safest route to the scene of a crash to assist the injured motorists, passengers and bystanders as quickly as possible.
RTC’s patented NG9-1-1 intelligent crash data software, RoadMedic, embedded in the operating systems of connected cars and autonomous vehicles will be able to provide 9-1-1 first responders with instant crash detection combined with intelligent crash data. RTTI will serve to enhance the capabilities of this technology.
“At Wejo, we are focused on Smart Mobility for Good™ products and services and, in this case, helping first responders understand, anticipate, and respond to what is happening on roads and highways to make informed decisions about their action plans during vehicular emergencies,” said Richard Barlow, Founder & CEO of Wejo. “Wejo RTTI can empower first responders and public safety officials to shape the future of emergency response and smart mobility in their cities using data-driven decision models”
RTTI offers several features, including ultra-low latency, highly granular traffic updates and accurate traffic events, real-time speeds and travel times for roads. This service enables quick detection of changing traffic conditions, identification of road closures and unexpected slowdowns situations, helping the unpredictable become more manageable.
“We welcome Wejo as our latest RoadMedic ecosystem partner. Wejo aligns with our mission to enable first responders through our groundbreaking NG9-1-1 intelligent crash data software,” said Lawrence E. Williams, CEO of Roadside Telematics Corp., “During 9-1-1 emergencies, seconds matter. We expect real-time traffic data from Wejo will enable safer and faster emergency responses.”
“As we continue to provide better pre-arrival information to first responders about the severity of a crash and the likelihood of severe injuries, RoadMedic plans to launch the first connected camera-based emergency takeover technology for autonomous emergency takeover situations, offering additional real-time critical insights for NG9-1-1 first responders,” added Williams.”
Built for any developer or mobility service provider that wishes to integrate real-time traffic into its solutions, RTTI is available via APIs and can help car/ride-sharing applications, logistics companies and other gig-economy companies improve estimated time of arrivals. It also enables the ability to implement dynamic pricing for congestion charging on routes, at tolls and in parking structures.
