Rekor Systems enables safer toads and drivers using connected vehicle telematics data available through the Otonomo Platform

Herzliya, Israel and San Francisco, United States – 03 August, 2022 – Otonomo Technologies Ltd., the platform powering the mobility economy, announced that Rekor Systems, Inc. and Otonomo are expanding their existing relationship with a multi-year contract supporting the mission of improving road and driver safety. 

Rekor, a global AI technology company that provides data-driven insights to build safer, smarter, and more efficient cities around the world, is deeply integrating the multi-layered connected vehicle data available via the Otonomo Smart Mobility Data platform into its roadway monitoring and response platform to enhance the accuracy and granularity of the Rekor incident identification algorithm, making it possible to respond to traffic incidents faster, potentially saving lives. With the Smart Mobility Data Platform, Rekor supports customers across departments of transportation, city traffic management centers, and regional transportation centers in St. Louis, Missouri, Gothenberg, Sweden, and the broader bay area of San Francisco, California.

“Ingesting connected vehicle data through Otonomo’s Smart Mobility Data Platform into our Rekor One Traffic Management solution further expands the breadth and depth of our global roadway coverage and accuracy of real-time and predictive traffic analytics to enable customers to achieve safer roads and drivers, and to gain the highest level of roadway intelligence,” says David Desharnais, president of Rekor. “This expanded partnership accelerates the future of mobility for our customers today and is aligned with our vision of intelligent infrastructure, including autonomous vehicles and vehicle-to-everything (V2X) interactions.”

“Otonomo is helping customers unlock access to road condition detection, which can be used to alert drivers of upcoming dangerous obstacles and speed up police and insurance investigations at accident sites – all while reducing the number of traffic fatalities in the process. The breadth of insights available through the Smart Mobility Data Platform extends Rekor’s roadside and emergency response capabilities, including in rural areas that have fewer traffic sensors and cameras,” says Anders Truelsen, chief revenue officer of Otonomo. “As a leading innovator in the mobility space, we’re excited to grow our relationship over the coming years with Rekor to deliver the roadway intelligence of the future.”

The Otonomo Smart Mobility Data Platform provides easy access to a range of proprietary and patented mobility data solutions that power customers products and services – from curated, high-quality, multi-layered connected vehicle data, standardised and blurred to remove identifiers; to VIN-specific data compliant with data privacy regulations; and ready-to-use insights generated with proprietary machine learning and AI. Customers have used this rich connected vehicle data to:

  • Gain an unprecedented view of traffic behaviors globally to improve real-time traffic flows with an accurate picture of what’s happening across road systems.
  • Allow smart cities to manage emissions, intelligently control idling areas, optimise parking and public transport and create data-driven simulations for short- and long-term planning.
  • Manage road safety through near-real-time and historical data on accidents, hard braking or speed, in addition to weather events and road friction to identify hazardous sections of road and plan for necessary improvements.
  • Support infrastructure and transportation developments with vehicle count, average speed and origin/destination data to determine site analysis and demand planning.
