Summary

Solution Summary

Waylay has developed a powerful and flexible orchestration platform for the Internet of Things that enables cities, solution providers and integrators to develop customised mobility solutions to improve traffic management and keep citizens informed. The Waylay platform enables you to aggregate all traffic and related

information sources and to contextualize them to a particular location or city in a fully automated way.

Problem

When it comes to city mobility, both city and citizens face challenges revolving around the lack of real-time insights about what is going on in the city and dispersed, uncorrelated information sources. City mobility management can be vastly improved by aggregating data from all these different sources and automating processes that result in meaningful information for both city and citizens. Combining data from different sources in real-time and processing information to take immediate decisions is the key to successful city traffic management.

Aim

Waylay for Smart Mobility benefits two categories of stakeholders: city traffic Centre staff and citizens. The city can manage human resources more wisely by automating repetitive tasks and improve long-term planning by predicting traffic and parking load with Waylay's advanced data analytics. Traffic controllers get real-time insights for round-the clock live traffic management and visualize multiple-source data in one single unified dashboard.

Citizens get location and context-relevant traffic information in a one-stop-shop and opt-in personalized notifications.

Approach

There are many isolated sources of information available out there: government open data, national road-monitoring agencies, railway and bus companies, parking information and countless digital data sources providing weather, traffic and other related real-time data.

Waylay aggregates, integrates and processes this multiple-source data in a fully automated way in order to come up with meaningful outputs for the city solution.
