Road Data RoadCloud Vantaa

(In Finnish below)

RoadCloud is pleased to announce that The City of Vantaa has decided to continue their trust in RoadCloud to produce high-quality data coverage for the roads of Vantaa. With its approximately 1600 kms of road, the busiest airport in Finland and developing mass-transit solutions, The City of Vantaa is truly a logistics city. The city tried RoadCloud’s road data services in 2020, and were happy to extend their contract until autumn 2022.

The data has also been shared with road maintenance contractors in Vantaa, to optimize their winter road maintenance work. Furthermore, pavement surface quality data has been monitored and shared with Rapal Oy for improved pavement maintenance analysis and repair cost estimation. The City of Vantaa is a perfect example of how RoadCloud’s data can be used and shared between different bodies to maximize the benefits of road data for all included parties.

The service RoadCloud provides includes training in using the services, so that the employees of The City of Vantaa can get the most out of RoadCloud’s services.

RoadCloudilla on ilo kertoa, että Vantaan kaupunki on päättänyt jatkaa yhteistyötä RoadCloudin kanssa, tuottaakseen korkealaatuista datakattavuutta Vantaan teille. Kaupungin noin 1600 kilometriä katua, kiistatta kiireisin lentoasema Suomessa ja kehittyviä joukkoliikenneratkaisuja, tekee Vantaan kaupungista todellisen logistiikkakaupungin. Kaupunki kokeili RoadCloudin tietietopalveluja vuonna 2020, ja halusi nyt pidentää sopimusta syksyyn 2022 asti.

Tiedataa on myös jaettu tienhoitourakoitsijoiden kanssa Vantaalla, optimoidakseen talvitie-kunnossapitotyötä. Lisäksi päällysteiden kuntoa on monitoroitu ja dataa on toimitettu myös Rapal Oy:lle lähtödatana, parantaakseen päällysteen kuntoa koskevia laskelmia sekä korjausten kustannusarvioita. Vantaan kaupunki on täydellinen esimerkki siitä, kuinka RoadCloudin dataa voidaan käyttää ja jakaa eri organisaatioiden kesken maksimoidakseen tiedatan hyötyjä kaikille osapuolille.

RoadCloudin tarjoama palvelu sisältää myös palvelun käyttöön liittyvää koulutusta, jotta Vantaan kaupungin työtekijät voivat saada mahdollisimman ison hyödyn RoadCloudin palveluista.

RoadCloud to Offer Premium Road Data on the HERE Marketplace



September 8, 2020 ESPOO, FINLAND/AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS, –– RoadCloud, the connected vehicle data platform that provides real-time information for transportation services and systems, and HERE Technologies, a leading location data and technology platform, today announced that they have teamed up to make RoadCloud road friction estimates, road condition data and weather data available via the HERE Marketplace.

As a global location data exchange hub, the HERE Marketplace enables RoadCloud to benefit from its global reach across industries and ecosystems and help the company to broaden its total addressable market and revenue opportunities.

By equipping commercial vehicle fleets with high-fidelity sensors, RoadCloud continuously collects high quality data on the state of the entire road network, including road pavement quality, black ice and potential aquaplaning scenarios. Its optical sensor (infra-red spectrometer and cloud-side calibration) can also collect information on water depth on the road and provide a continuous road friction coefficient.

The RoadCloud data offering consists of both normal vehicle CAN bus (Controller Area Network) data and premium data sets that are produced by RoadCloud's proprietary sensors.

RoadCloud data helps OEMs to increase the safety of their Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and accelerate autonomous vehicle development by providing an accurate view of the road conditions 'behind the next curve'. It also helps smart cities and road authorities maintain roads up to 20% more efficiently and with a 15% lower impact on the environment in both summer and winteri.

"Through the HERE Marketplace, we're tapping into an extensive ecosystem of companies and developers. This will enable OEMs and smart cities to seamlessly access and integrate our data into their existing systems", says Ari Tuononen, CEO at RoadCloud.

"The HERE Marketplace is designed to give companies and developers the opportunity to utilize location data at an unprecedented scale and to accelerate data-driven innovation," said Sanjiv Ghate, Vice President and Head of Data Monetization & Marketplace at HERE Technologies. "We welcome RoadCloud as a provider of highly relevant data for the development of safety-critical services for the automotive industry and beyond."

RoadCloud Expands Data Service Coverage in Scandinavia

RoadCloud has received an order from Trafikverket to create data coverage for the Northern part of Sweden, in addition to an on-going 3-year order in southern Sweden. Naturally, Lapland is a very interesting region in terms of “bullet-proof” winter conditions and it serves as a winter testing area for the automotive industry. RoadCloud data coverage will include automotive winter testing cities such as Arjeplog and Arvidsjaur, and the highway towards Luleå.

The generated data set is a standard Roadcloud offering, including road surface condition and friction measured continuously by our in-house designed infrared spectrometer. The data will be available for the automotive industry developing advanced ADAS, such as road friction adaptive ACC and emergency braking systems optimized for slippery roads.

To learn more on how Roadcloud’s technology is helping to make your roads safer, check out our white paper on Winter Road Maintenance.
