CORRECTING and REPLACING GRAPHIC Analytics Firm Quantzig Helps Fight Traffic Congestion Using Big Data

LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#Analytics–Please replace the graphic with the accompanying corrected graphic.

The release reads:


Urban traffic congestion is increasingly having a negative effect on
economic growth due to factors such as productivity loss, higher risk to
passenger safety, and an increase in fuel consumption and pollution.
According to global analytics and advisory firm Quantzig,
“These downfalls can be countered by improving performance measurements
for seamless traffic flow, reduced congestion, and efficiently managed
current roadway assets by using big data. Big
data analytics offers improved methods
to predict congestion before
it happens, using a combination of real-time information, historical
trends, and the latest algorithms.”

Quantzig was recently approached by a leading global mobile
services operator headquartered in Europe to perform a predictive
analytics study. The client approached Quantzig because they wanted an analysis
of transport demand and supply to optimize routes
, reduce costs and
develop a network optimization solution to ensure optimized route

In this big data analytics assessment, Quantzig’s big data analysts
identified a set of transport indicators that could be measured using
mobile phone data available with travel agencies. By assessing large
sets of mobile data, transportation networks, network constraints,
transportation routes, service timings, population data, and cost data,
Quantzig developed a network optimization solution to ensure optimized
route planning.

This study provides insights such as:

  • Daily estimates of the travel demand for all travel nodes, which
    enables better transport planning
  • Travel flow estimation from aggregated movements to an enabled
    in-depth understanding of how traffic demand is distributed in the
    transportation network and how it varies over time
  • Identification of parts of the transportation network which has poor
    infrastructure and is not well adapted to traffic demand
  • Calculated travel delay metrics to estimate travel delays due to
    congestion based on travel time distribution between peak and non-peak
