Every day, millions of people face mobility challenges in cities all over the world. The question is: how can connected vehicle data be used to tackle these challenges? Can it help improve the quality of life for everyone living and working in our urban environments?
At Ford Mobility, we think it can. We believe data will help cities understand how vehicles operate. A deeper understanding of driver and vehicle behaviour can contribute to reducing congestion, improving road safety and mitigating traffic challenges. Our latest research has demonstrated the power of connected vehicle data to provide valuable insights and effective predictive tools. For example, we have managed to use data to predict the locations of incidents on the road network and identify the optimal locations for future electric charge points.
